Es gibt viel internationale Debatte über die Frage, inwieweit Organismen von so genannten neuen Zuchtmethoden durch den Einsatz hergestellt (NBTS) fallen in den Geltungsbereich der bestehenden Vorschriften Biosicherheit, e.g. ob sie unter die Definition von GEO fallen (USDA), GMO (US), HABEN (Kanada), LMO (CPB), und so weiter. These questions will be addressed at a later stage on the pages under “Regulation”.

The links to the techniques listed below provide summaries of the technical background of several techniques together with links to further information.

NB: it should be noted that the term New Breeding Techniques covers a wide range of very different techniques and that not all those techniques are necessarily ‘new’, and not all those techniques are ‘breedingin a strict sense. Außerdem, the terms cisgenesis and intragenesis refer to an endresult rather than to a technique.
