Debating the GM Crops Efficacy

Modern technology with its use of genetic engineering, whereby DNA molecules from different organisms (rDNA) can be combined, is emerging as a potential tool in agriculture. The plant’s varieties that are being developed through this technique are popularly known as genetically engineered (GE), genetically modified (GM) or transgenic crops.  Although genetic modification of plants through […]

Playing God: Gm Foods

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs), often termed as creations of ‘modern biotechnology’ or ‘genetic technology’, can be defined as organisms where the genetic material or dioxyribonucleic acid (DNA) has been altered to allow selected individual genes to be transferred from one organism into another – even between non-related species. The initial objective for developing GM plants […]
