Synthetische Biologie im Naturschutz?

Kritik an neuem Bericht der International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)

Am 16. Juli haben zahlreiche NGOs, darunter auch die IG Saatgut, einen offenen Brief veröffentlicht.

Darin heisst es:
“(…) We welcome your recognition of the need for a “balanced, fact-based debate around this important but controversial topic”. However, we note that the majority of the contributors to the Genetic Frontiers for Conservation report, including the chair of the taskforce and technical group, are well-known advocates of genetically engineering wild species and releasing them on a large scale into the environment, and that the key case studies were written by the proponents of these technologies. (…) We respectfully suggest that you now move to commission an equal and equivalent report by those who advocate a precautionary approach which questions the wisdom of genetically engineering wild ecosystems in this way, thus bringing the assessment in line with Resolution 086.1 Until that is done, no policy should be formulated.”

Die kanadische ETC-Group berichtet ausführlich über die im Brief angesprochene Einseitigkeit des Berichts und die Interessenkonflikte einiger der AutorInnen: Driving Under the Influence? A review of the evidence for bias and conflict of interest in the IUCN report on synthetic biology and gene drive organisms
