This knowledge opens up enormous possibilities for plant genetic engineering, allowing not only the expression of a new protein but also the ability to change complex metabolic pathways in the plant. This will allow the scope of input traits to be broadened, but especially it will open unlimited possibilities to improve the quality of plant crops with new or modified output traits. 2 The cloning step: from gene isolation towards the assembly of a functional transgene construct After the discovery of the gene coding for the trait of interest and physically obtaining the DNA for this gene, the next step is to create a gene unit that will lead to the functional expression of the trait of interest in the acceptor plant.

By breeding, crossing is needed between one parent of the well-performing variety and the other parent containing the trait of interest. Thereby, both genomes are mixed and many backcrosses are needed to obtain again the well-performing variety while keeping the trait of interest. By genetic modification, a trait from any organism can be isolated and introduced into the well-performing background without dragging along unwanted genetic information. individuals is then needed to identify the mutant plants with the desired traits.

An example is Bt maize, which produces an insect toxic protein in the plant and which, as a result, does not need the application of a pesticide to control European corn borer infection. Another example is the introduction of resistance to the non- selective herbicide, Roundup, trait in crops, allowing the spraying of Roundup for weed control without damaging crop plants. Output traits, on the other hand, are those that alter the harvested product. One example is the increase of the oleic acid content of soybeans, resulting in an improved product for food and industrial use.
