- Tandem constructs: preventing the rise of superweedsJ Gressel
Department of Plant Sciences, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, IL 76100, Israel
Trends Biotechnol 17:361-6. 1999..Genes that prevent seed shatter or secondary dormancy, or that dwarf the recipient could all be useful for mitigation and may have value to the crop. Many such genes have been isolated in the past few years...
- Molecular biology of weed controlJ Gressel
Plant Sciences, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel
Transgenic Res 9:355-82; discussion 353. 2000..There might be ways to disperse deleterious transposons throughout weed populations, obviating the need to modify the crops...
- Potential failsafe mechanisms against the spread and introgression of transgenic hypervirulent biocontrol fungiJ Gressel
Department of Plant Sciences, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot 76100, Israel
Trends Biotechnol 19:149-54. 2001..Hypervirulence genes flanked with available 'transgenetic mitigator' (TM) genes (genes that are neutral or positive to the biocontrol agent but deleterious to recombinants) would decrease virulence to non-target species...
