(a) Name of the recipient or parental plant and the intended function of the genetic modification.
GHB614 x T304-40 x GHB119 cotton was developed by crossing the single parental lines GHB614, T304-40 and GHB119 using traditional breeding methods. No new genetic modification was introduced in GHB614 x T304-40 x GHB119 cotton. GHB614 x T304-40 x GHB119 cotton (OECD ID: BCS-GHØØ2-5 x BCS-GHØØ4-7 x BCS-GHØØ5-8) contains the stably integrated 2mepsps gene which confers tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate, the bar gene which confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate ammonium, the cry1Ab and the cry2Ae genes which confer resistance to certain lepidopteran pests. The 2mepsps gene was introduced in the GHB614 cotton genome, the pat and the cry1Ab genes were introduced in the T304-40 cotton genome and the pat and the cry2Ae genes were introduced in the GHB119 cotton genome.
