BMENA Case Study - Genetic Variation for Markers Linked to Stem Rust Resistance Genes in Pakistani Wheat Varieties
This case study is based on an article that analyzes genetic variation in rust resistance genes in Pakistani wheat varieties. This case study has been designed to train participants in doing research risk analysis and promote dialogue on the biosecurity risks involved with highly pathogenic plant fungi; security implications of working with subject matter or materials that have both malicious and beneficial uses (dual use); environmental and economic risks of plant pathogen research; and appropriate experimental design in a relatively low-risk experiment.
The primary risk areas that this case study addresses are:
- Plant biosecurity
- Dual use
- Accidental gene release and environmental implications
- Economic security
