Abstract:

Our society has a great concern about transgenic crops regarding mixing of genetic materials between species whose hybridization is not possible naturally. Different public policies on the development and use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are of high concern with defining proper risk management strategies. Researchers are in agreement that this technology ‘‘tampers with nature’’ in an unacceptable manner. This has been recognised as an objection to the crossing of species borders in generation of transgenic organisms. There are recent projects of genetic modification which is aimed at accommodation of the above mentioned concerns by alteration of expression of endogenous genes rather than introduction of genes from other species. Several surveys show higher public acceptance of intragenic/cisgenic crops compared to transgenic crops. Therefore, although the intragenic and cisgenic concepts were internationally introduced only in last decade, several different traits in different variety of crops have recently been modified according to these concepts. The main moral reason for intragenic modification, is the requirement to respect the ‘‘otherness’’ of nature.
