Crop Genome Plasticity and Its Relevance to Food and Feed Safety of Genetically Engineered Breeding Stacks
Journal Article 1/1/2012

​This article, published in the December 2012 issue of Plant Physiology, draws on insights from plant breeding, describes the plasticity of conventional plant genomes over generations of crossing and selection, and considers the implications of event stacking on food and feed safety in the context of normal plant genome behavior.
