000262480 520__ $$aGenomic information and its associated technologies appear to have the  potential to significantly increase agricultural productivity and, hence,  contribute to meeting the food security challenges that feeding nine billion  people by 2050 presents. The costs of genomic information and the associated  implementation technologies continue to fall. Much of the output of genomic - based improvement may not qualify for protection as intellectual property. It  also does not suffer from the concerns  that have been associated with  transgenic technology  – GMOs  – such as potential risks to human health and  the environment, ethical issues and highly concentrated control of the food  system. As a result, both the regulatory and trade regimes need not be as  rigorous as has been the case for GMOs in some jurisdictions. A regulatory  regime that encourages investment in genomics- based agricultural technology  and an open trade regime will facilitate the ability of the technology to  contribute to global food security.
