Physicals: shooting with micro particles with DNA Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can be defined as: “ organisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating or natural recombination. As an application of modern biotechnology, this technique allows selected individual genes to be transferred from one organism into another, also between non-related species ” What are GMOs?

Enhanced input traits , such as herbicide tolerance, insect and virus protection, and tolerance to environmental stressors such as drought. Value-added output traits , such as corn with higher amounts of lysine for animal feed, or vegetable oils with increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Crops that produce pharmaceuticals or improve the processing of bio-based fuels....
