Researchers at University of California San Diego and Sapphire Energy have successfully grown genetically modified algae outdoors; claim GM algae don’t harm native algae populations, can fend off deadly bacteria, could allow creation of algae that produce more oil, make biofuels or biodegradable plastics. Microalgae reproduce rapidly, engineered traits can quickly spread because of the plants’ horizontal gene transfer capabilities. Should those engineered traits fail to remain stable, potential for the genes to spread rapidly out of control and change in unpredictable ways, spread into the environment.
