nptII gene for resistance to kanamycin.Genetic modification3. Type of genetic modification:Insertion; In case of insertion of genetic material, give the source and intended function of each constituent fragment of the region to be inserted:Promoter HSP from soybean, gene promoting tuberization from potato, 35S terminator.6. Brief description of the method used for the genetic modification:Agrobacterium-mediated transformation7. If the recipient or parental plant is a forest tree species, describe ways and extent of dissemination and specific factors affecting dissemination:Not applicableExperimental Release1. Purpose of the release:Assay for increased tuber yield under heat stress conditions.2. Geographical location of the site:Estación Experimental La Mayora. Algarrobo-Costa (Málaga)3. Size of the site (m2):400 m24. Relevant data regarding previous releases carried out with the same GM-plant, if any, specifically related to the potential environmental and human health impacts from the release:This is a second release. In the first release no impact on human health or environment was observed.Environmental Impact and Risk ManagementSummary of the potential environmental impact from the release of the GMPts:No selective advantage is foreseen aside from an increase yield in tubers under heat stress conditions.Brief description of any measures taken for the management of risks:The field will be isolated by a fence and only specialized personnel will have access to it. After the test is completed it will be treated with herbicide twice, directly after harvest and 4 month later, to assure sprouting of any tuber that could have been left over.Summary of foreseen field trial studies focused to gain new data on environmental and human health impact from the release:Not applicable.Final reportEuropean Commission administrative informationConsent given by the Member State Competent Authority:Yes01/07/2011 00:00:00Remarks:
