Technology Characterisation -- Gene Drives Touching Tipping Points -- Vulnerability Analysis of Ecological Systems -- Case Studies -- Modelling -- Alternative Techniques and Options for Risk Reduction of Gene Drives -- Limits of Knowledge & Tipping Points in the Risk Assessment of Gene Drive Organisms -- Steps towards a precautionary risk governance of SPAGE technologies including Gene-Drives.
This open access book reports on a pilot project aiming at collecting information on the socio-ecological risks that could arise in the event of an uncontrolled spread of genetically engineered organisms into the environment. The researchers will, for instance, be taking a closer look at genetically engineered oilseed rape, genetically engineered olive flies as well as plants and animals with so-called gene drives. The book mainly adresses researchers.
