Canola
Canola

Genetic Engineering of Canola Genetically-modified canola Genetically modified (GM) or transgenic canola varieties made by utilizing modern plant breeding or genetic engineering have been developed to be resistant to specific herbicides. They are called herbicide-resistant varieties. The plants are modified, but the oil is not modified.

Cell Selection
Cell Selection

Scientifically, genetic engineering is the manipulation or alteration in the genetic makeup of an organism to impart certain characters to it. It is an artificial process which uses the recombinant DNA technology and is a bit different from the natural breeding techniques.

Corn
Corn

Although genetic engineering cannot be summarily accepted or rejected, any lack of scientific risk now doesn't negate future concerns. And, no matter what direction future research takes, corn will continue to be a bellwether crop.

Crossing
Crossing

Crossing over, or recombination, is the exchange of chromosome segments between nonsister chromatids in meiosis. Crossing over creates new combinations of genes in the gametes that are not found in either parent, contributing to genetic diversity. All body cells are diploid, meaning they contain ...

Embryo Rescue
Embryo Rescue

Embryo genetic engineering would be the technology of choice only if the goal was so-called genetic enhancement, that is, the creation of a "super-human." Acknowledging this, some advocates of genetic engineering of human embryos have dropped any pretense that their interest in the procedure is limited to therapeutic applications.

Interspecies Crossing
Interspecies Crossing

Some time back farming practices like Simple Selection, Crossing, Interspecies Crossing, Embryo Rescue and Cell Selection were used to propagate crops and animals with better qualities. The concept is what drives genetic engineering today.

Milk
Milk

Genetic engineering is used by scientists to enhance or modify the characteristics of an individual organism. Genetic engineering can be applied to any organism, from a virus to a sheep. For example, genetic engineering can be used to produce plants that have a higher nutritional value or can tolerate exposure to herbicides.

Mutation Breeding: Induced Chemical and X-ray Mutagenesis
Mutation Breeding: Induced Chemical and X-ray Mutagenesis

They term radiation-induced mutagenesis “conventional radiation treatment” and argue on the basis of papers discussing mutation-bred crops that “conventional plant breeding causes mutations” – appearing to imply that mutation breeding is synonymous with conventional breeding.

Simple Selection
Simple Selection

Genetic engineering and the subsequent development of gene editing made possible active human intervention in the evolutionary process and held out the possibility of tailoring living organisms, including the human organism, to specific tasks.

Somaclonal Variation
Somaclonal Variation

Somaclonal variation is not restricted to, but is particularly common in, plants regenerated from callus. The variations can be genotypic or phenotypic, which in the latter case can be either genetic or epigenetic in origin.

Somatic Hybridization
Somatic Hybridization

One of the most significant developments in the field of plant tissue culture during. recent years has been the isolation, culture and fusion of protoplasts ( Coking, 1972).

Yellow Crookneck Squash and Zucchini
Yellow Crookneck Squash and Zucchini

3) Yellow Crookneck Squash and Zucchini Numbers of this GMO veggie are relatively small, but genetically modified yellow squash and zucchini can be found in two different species in the U.S. The species contain protein genes that protect against viruses. Just like their other GMO counterparts, you won't be able to tell the difference between non-GMO and GMO zucchini or squash.
