Abstract

Methods to monitor survival, transport and ecological impact of genetically engineered microorganisms (GEMs) and their recombinant genes in the soil environment are briefly described. Methods are introduced for: genetic and phenotypic marking of GEMs; measuring processes of genetic exchange in the soil; monitoring of bacterial survival in the soil; biological containment of GEMs; and detecting viruses in the soil, including bacterial and animal viruses. -J.W.Cooper
