The Struggle for Maize book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. When scientists discovered transgenes in local Mexican corn varieti 4/5. The discovery of transgenic products in maize (Zea mays) landraces planted by small-scale Mexican farmers (Quist and Chapela, , ; Christou, ; Editorial Note, ) raised questions about how the commercial introduction of transgenic maize varieties might affect the traditional agricultural systems of small-scale farmers.A key concern is whether their introduction will have a Cited by:
Transgenic maize crops producing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxins are primarily targeted at a butterfly, the corn borer. These cultures involve monitoring the possible emergence of insects resistant to Bt toxin. The high-dose refuge strategy (HDR), mandatory in the United States and under discussion in Europe, aims to avoid the appearance of this resistance, by promoting genetic mixing in. Here we report the presence of introgressed transgenic DNA constructs in native maize landraces grown in remote mountains in Oaxaca, Mexico, part of the Mesoamerican centre of origin and Cited by:
Corn was domesticated through hundreds of generations; wild maize cobs became larger over time, with more rows of kernels, eventually modified to the corn we farm today ().In fact, the degree of genetic alteration has converted corn from a wild plant—its progenitor commonly believed to be teocintle (Zea mexicana (Schrad.)Kuntze)—into a plant that is totally dependent upon humans for Author: José Luis Cabrera-Ponce, Eliana Valencia-Lozano, Diana Lilia Trejo-Saavedra. In Transgenic Maize: Methods and Protocols, experts in the various disciplines of the field contribute readily reproducible protocols covering such topics as transformation methods, transgenic maize in research, the analysis of transgenic plants, and breeding with transgenes. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology.

About this book As increasing global population and continuing Transgenic maize book development ensure the need for further production and cultivation of maize, the necessity of the application of transgenic technology to this model species and crop plant grows steadily.
Cutting-edge and easy to use, Transgenic Maize: Methods Transgenic maize book Protocols will greatly aid researchers wishing to use these procedures in their own laboratories, and will provide readers with a better understanding of the experiments being performed by cooperators or fee-for-service : Paperback.
As increasing global population and continuing economic development ensure the need for further production and cultivation of maize, the necessity of the application of transgenic technology to this model species and crop plant grows steadily.
In Transgenic Maize: Methods and Prools Price: $ “The Struggle for Maize is an important book about a crucial topic, the debate over the dissemination of genetically modified (GM) corn in Mexico, the crop’s biological center of origin.
The debate is significant because the more the modern varieties of corn become disseminated, the more biological diversity is lost, as that diversity depends on the traditional corn varieties cultivated by by: Cutting-edge and easy to use, Transgenic Maize: Methods and Protocols will greatly aid researchers wishing to use these procedures in their own laboratories, and will provide readers with a better understanding of the experiments being performed by cooperators or fee-for-service labs.
Summary: In this book, experts in the various disciplines of the field contribute readily reproducible protocols covering such topics as transformation methods, transgenic maize in research, the analysis of transgenic plants, and breeding with transgenes. What makes this book particularly timely is that maize is now increasingly marketed as F 1 hybrid seed in ‘biotech form’ with almost one-third of all maize sown globally in possessing genetically modified traits of insect resistance, herbicide tolerance, or : Huw D.
Jones. In The Struggle for Maize, Elizabeth Fitting explores the competing claims of the GM corn debate in relation to the livelihood struggles of small-scale maize producers, migrants, and maquiladora.
The chapters cover a range of topics, such as growing and propagating maize in the laboratory, greenhouse and field studies, screening mutagenic population, characterizing the genome, describing protein and metabolic regulatory networks, and generating transgenic plants for gene knock-out and over expression purposes.

Conclusion Brand: Duke University Press. Conceived with the aim of sorting fact from fiction over genetically modified (GM) crops, this book brings together the knowledge of 30 specialists in the field of transgenic plants.
It covers the generation and detection of these plants as well as the genetic traits conferred on transgenic plants. In addition, the book looks at a wide variety of crops, ornamental plants and tree species that. Recently, transgenic maize genotypes, especially suited for transformation have been developed.
Transgenic maize overexpressing the maize Baby boom (ZmBbm) and maize Wuschel2 (ZmWus2) genes, showed high transformation frequencies in numerous previously non-transformable maize inbred lines (Lowe et al., ).Earlier, the maize streak virus replication-associated protein A (RepA) was Cited by: Abstract: We are attempting to engineer transgenic maize for resistance to the parasitic weed Striga, based on RNA interference silencing technology (RNAi).
In this approach, the transgenic maize produces double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) molecules targeted against genes essential for Striga survival. As Striga establishes on the maize roots, the silencing agent could systemically spread to its. Transgenic and nontransgenic maize were root‐irrigated 7 days after seed germination with Bs strain B‐gfp.
Roots, stems, and leaves were collected for analysis every 7 days after inoculation. Under greenhouse conditions, the B‐gfp population in the roots of transgenic maize reached a maximum value of log 10 CFU/g on day 21 Cited by: 4. Transgenic maize was planted with million hectares and it accounted for 31% of the global maize production in .
Most of the GM maize that is cultivated in the world is insect resistant, herbicide tolerance, or a combination of both traits. Two transgenic maizes are currently underAuthor: Liang Chen, Ruqing Zhong, Lilan Zhang, Hongfu Zhang.
Volumes 1 and 2 of Transgenic Plants assemble important information on transgenic crops which has appeared scattered in many different publications.
These two volumes are a significant milestone in plant/agricultural biology, promote the practical application of recombinant DNA technology, and assist in transforming the agricultural industry.
