Sažetak
Encompassing a wide range of procedures for changing living organisms according to human purposes in agriculture, green biotechnology has expanded to include new and diverse sciences such as genomics and recombinant gene technologies applied particularly in plant production. At Agricultural Institute Osijek, genomics has been adopted and used as a standard tool during process of developing recent varieties of maize, wheat and soybean, for example. Furthermore, we detected chromosome segments in maize which seem to be associated with biofortification traits in grain to aid increase the concentrations of bioavailable minerals such as iron and zinc. This might be also valuable for further research in food biotechnology. However, green biotechnology in agriculture is much tighter associated with recombinant gene technologies in crop plants. Since recombinant gene technology in food production is viewed controversially in Europe, shifting the paradigm in agriculture to biofuel production seems to be promising for further progress of green biotechnology. Recently, we apply recombinant gene technologies for altering cadmium concentration in maize in order to provide efficient plants for biofuel production advocating safe and appropriate use of technology and environmental protection.
