Gene Drives at Tipping Points
Precautionary Technology Assessment and Governance of New Approaches to Genetically Modify Animal and Plant Populations
von Gleich, Arnim (editor)
Schröder, Winfried (editor)
This open access book reports on a pilot project aiming at collecting information on the socio-ecological risks that could arise in the event of an uncontrolled spread of genetically engineered organisms into the environment. The researchers will, for instance, be taking a closer look at genetically engineered oilseed rape, genetically engineered olive flies as well as plants and animals with so-called gene drives. The book mainly adresses researchers.
