NDSU Policy on Biotech Research

&

GM Wheat Update

ndsu policy on biotech research
“to develop and disseminate technology important to the production and utilization of food, feed, and fuel from crop and livestock enterprises”NDSU Policy on Biotech Research

Purpose of NDAES:

ndsu policy on biotech research3
Indicates controlling authorities

Guide NDSU scientists

Communicate to the public

NDSU Policy on Biotech Research
slide6
Continue to develop genetically improved and environmentally adapted crops.

NDAES will…

slide7
Manage development and propagation of new varieties to insure the availability of pure seed to the fullest extent possible.

NDAES will…

slide8
Follow research protocols that exceed APHIS standards when testing regulated biotech crops.

NDAES will…

decision making process
The NDSU Institutional Biosafety Committee will give additional oversight to the approval process for testing regulated biotech material.

All regulated biotech research pre-approved by the NDAES Director.

All non-regulated biotech research communicated to the Director prior to planting.

Policy regarding biotech research at all NDAE locations set by the NDAES Director.

Decision Making Process
slide10
Continue to utilize public variety release meeting for reviewing plant material considered for commercial release.

NDAES will…

slide11
NDSU policies on biotech research do not

supercede established rules. However, they

may be more restrictive or precautionary.

GM Wheat Trait Research

  • Preliminary analysis/interpretation
  • Data from Monsanto, North Dakota and South Dakota are still being developed
  • Extensive research on GM Wheat and much beyond RRW and Monsanto
  • Sources
    • www.health.gov.au/ogtr/gmorecord/ir.htm
    • www1.oecd.org/ehs/biobin/
    • www.inspection.gc.ca/english/plaveg/pbo/pbobbve.shtm

Number of World GM Wheat Field Trials by Type of Organization, (Public vs Private) 1993-2002

Major Points

  • US is dominant, albeit not the only player
  • HT is only one trait under development, followed by
    • Product quality
    • Fusarium Resistance...etc
  • Diverse organizations in GM wheat with no one likely dominating
biotech products require different oversight
Biotech Products Require Different Oversight

Regulation should be commensurate with risk, but new technologies often necessitate more rigorous regulation

three agency approach
USDA = Is it Safe to Grow?

EPA = Is it Safe to the Environment?

FDA = Is it Safe to Eat?

Regulatory Requirements

  • Product Characterization
    • Gene source(s)
    • Molecular characterization
    • Insert, copy number, gene integrity
    • Function, specificity, mode of action
    • Protein levels in plant
  • Crop Safety
    • Crop development
    • Crop yield
  • Toxicity/Allergenicity
    • Digestibility of protein
    • Heat stability of protein
    • Similarity to known allergens
    • Acute toxicity – mouse, rat
    • History of safe use and consumption

Food Composition

Nutrients

Anti-nutrients

EPA, FDA, or USDA can remove the crop or food

from the market if there is a question of safety for

consumers or the environment

  • Environmental Safety
    • Ecotoxicity, Birds, Mammals, Fish
    • Soil & aquatic invertebrates,
    • Soil degradation, Beneficial insects
    • Insect Resistance Management

bringing in new technologies to wheat
NDSU, SDSU, U of M and Technology Providers meet on a regular basis to discuss progress of biotech wheat research

Roundup Ready wheat will be introduced when the following commercialization milestones have been achieved:

Bringing in New Technologies to Wheat
slide26

Commercialization Milestone……..

The food, feed and environmental safety of Roundup Ready wheat is demonstrated, resulting in regulatory approvals in the United States, Canada and Japan

*The intent is to commercialize in the U.S. and Canada simultaneously.

slide27

Commercialization Milestone……..

Appropriate regulatory trade approvals, thresholds or marketing agreements are in place in major export markets.

slide28

Commercialization Milestone……..

Appropriate grain handling protocols and standardized sampling and detection methods are developed and implemented

slide29

Commercialization Milestone……..

Comprehensive agronomic stewardship programs and best management practices are developed

slide30

Commercialization Milestone……..

Varieties meet or exceed industry standards for grain end-use quality

slide31

Commercialization Milestone……..

Buyers are identified who will procure and use wheat ingredients with biotech traits
