Entre los resultados de dicha investigacion, realizada en 2004 en todo el pais, destacan las reticencias que el publico mostraba para aceptar la transgenesis y la clonacion, justificando estas tecnicas solo para fines de salud, aunque una alta proporcion la objeta por la incertidumbre y los riesgos que entranan (5).
The poor in developing nations have no access to either, and for Gressel, the answer is plant molecular biology and transgenesis.
Y Papagaroufali (1996) considera que las practicas biotecnologicas, como los xenotrasplantes y la transgenesis, cuestionan y jerarquizan las fronteras establecidas entre lo humano y lo animal.
Over the past two decades there has been a concerted effort to isolate and characterize antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) as an alternative to antibiotics (Mookherjee & Hancock 2007, Pereira 2006), as well as for the creation of disease-resistant strains of fish through transgenesis (Buchanan et al.
El promotor CaMV35S utilizado en el presente estudio permitio la expresion efectiva del gen gus en el cultivar de platano; siendo comparable el porcentaje de plantas con celulas GUS positivas al obtenido en otros estudios de transgenesis vegetal.
This field of creativity is based on the use of certain genetic and biochemical methods in contemporary art practice, among them neogenesis (correcting the genetic code by exerting influence of amino acids that, though existing in nature, have never been used by terrestrial forms of life to form an organism), degenesis (knock-out of the genes or genetic structures to obtain new characteristics of an organism), and transgenesis (removal- or artificial synthesis--of genes or genetic structures from the cells of an organism and their implantation into the cells of different organisms).
His, perhaps unpopular, suggestion is that transgenesis (utilizing genes from one species with those of another to, for instance, resist plant pests) will continue and will result in dramatic increases in food production.
One significant advantage of transgenesis is in rapid genetic improvement of traits of interest as the selection for an animal for a particular trait involves many years.
