Risks of genetically engineered crops

Considerable uncertainty surrounds the evolutionary rates of and selection pressures acting on arthropod-borne RNA viruses (arboviruses). In particular, it is unclear why arboviruses such as dengue virus show substantial genetic variation within individual humans and mosquitoes yet low long-term rates of amino acid substitution. To address this question, I compared patterns of nonsynonymous variation in populations of dengue virus sampled at different levels of evolutionary divergence.

The requirements for intercellular movement of Potato virus X (PVX) 12K, 8K, and coat proteins (CP) differed in two Nicotiana spp. Plasmids containing the green fluorescent protein (GFP) gene fused to PVX 12K, 8K, or CP genes were bombarded to tob...
