There are not many, but a risk often mentioned is that the black rose might escape into the wild and disturb the ecosystem.

Also, not really a risk but a disadvantage neverteless, black roses will need artificial pollination because insects are not attracted to them.

This is basically the project i have to work on. it's a little challenging. Part A: Describe how rose breeders have traditionally created new varieties of roses. How does this relate to natural evolutionary processes? [5 marks] Part B: Outline how a true-breeding black rose could be produced using the process of biotechnology. Include i) details of the technologies involved [15 marks] ii) a discussion of the genetics involved – ie what is meant by true breeding and how can we determined whether a plant is true breeding or not [4 marks] Part C: Discuss the benefits and risks of the production of a black rose by this method. [7 marks] Part D: Should this actually happen, the successful person or company will most likely patent the plant. Discuss the ethics of patenting nature and other ethics involved. [7 marks]

for part A I would suggest googling "artificial selection" for part B 2 google "true breeding test cross" for part C: some advantages might be: 1. blackrose can be made less susceptible to diseases 2. they can be genetically modified to be more productive in the environment where they are grown 3. they might be more appealing to some customers for part D: i suggest googling: patent GMO ethics
