RELEASE DATE 01.03.2017
Report on 'Human Genome Editing'

A joint publication bij The Health Council of the Netherlands and the Netherlands Commission on Genetic Modification (COGEM)

In November 2015 The Health Council  and COGEM organized an international meeting (Genome on Demand) on the potential use of CRISPR/Cas9 technology to edit the human genome.

The upcoming report is in sequel to this meeting. In the report the technical, legal and ethical aspects of germline modification in humans will be explored and discussed.

RELEASE DATE 02.04.2017
Application for the authorisation of import and processing of genetically modified maize MZHG0JG

COGEM has been asked to advise on the environmental risks of import and processing of genetically modified (GM) maize MZHG0JG. This line harbours the genes mepsps and pat, and is tolerant to glyphosate and glufosinate containing herbicides.

RELEASE DATE 06.04.2017
Application for the authorisation of import and processing of genetically modified soybean MON87708 x MON89788 x A5547-127

COGEM has been asked to advise on the environmental risks of import and processing of genetically modified (GM) soybean MON87708 x MON89788 x A5547-127.This line is tolerant to the herbicides: dicamba, glyfosate and glufosinate (dmo, cp4 epspsen and pat).

RELEASE DATE 06.04.2017
Advice on import and processing of GM maize MON87427 x MON87460 x MON89034 x MIR162 x NK603 (and subcombinations)

COGEM has been asked to advise on import and processing of genetically modified (GM) maize MON87427 x MON87460 x MON89034 x MIR162 x NK603 (and subcombinations). It is resistant to certain insects due to the expression of the cry1A.105, cry2Ab2 and vip3Aa20 genes. It also expresses the cp4 epsps gene, conferring tolerance to glyphosate containing herbicides, and is drought tolerant due to the expression of the cspB gene.

RELEASE DATE 18.04.2017
Application for the authorisation of import and processing of genetically modified soybean DAS-68416-4 x MON89788

COGEM has been asked to advise on the environmental risks of import and processing of genetically modified (GM) soybean DAS-68416-4 x MON89788. This line is herbicide tolerant (glyfosate and glufosinate; aad-12, cp4 epsps and pat).

RELEASE DATE 02.05.2017
Application for the authorisation of import and processing of genetically modified maize GA21xT25

COGEM has been asked to advise on the environmental risks of import and processing of genetically modified (GM) maize GA21xT25. This line harbours the genes mepsps and pat, and is tolerant to glyphosate and glufosinate containing herbicides.

RELEASE DATE 02.05.2017

COGEM has been asked to advise on the environmental risks of import and processing of genetically modified (GM) maize GA21 x T25. This line harbours the genes mepsps and pat, and is tolerant to glyphosate and glufosinate containing herbicides

RELEASE DATE 16.05.2017
Application for the authorisation of import and processing of genetically modified soybean DAS-81419-2 x DAS-44406-6

COGEM has been asked to advise on the environmental risks of import and processing of genetically modified (GM) soybean DAS-81419-2 x DAS-44406-6. This line is insect resistent (cry1Fv3, cry1Ac), and herbicide tolerant ((glyfosate (2mepsps), 2,4-D (aad-12), glufosinate-ammonium (pat)).
