Genetically modified foods: New modules of modifications in genetic material.

Genetic modification is a type of gene technology that modifies the genetic machinery of living organisms such as animals, plants, and microbes. Recombinant DNA technology is the process of combining genes from multiple organisms, and the resulting organism is referred to as 'Genetically Modified (GM)', 'Genetically engineered', or 'Transgenic.' Herbicide and pesticide resistant soybeans, corn, cotton, and canola are the most common transgenic crops produced commercially in the field. Sweet potato ND rice with increased iron and vitamins that may alleviate chronic malnutrition in Asian countries, and a variety of plants that can survive weather extremes are among the other crops grown commercially and/or field-tested. Genetic modification is a sort of gene technology in which the genetic machinery of living organisms such as animals, plants, and bacteria is altered. The method of mixing genes from several organisms is known as recombinant DNA technology, and the resulting organism is referred to as 'Genetically Modified (GM)', 'Genetically engineered', or 'Transgenic.' The most frequent transgenic crops grown commercially in the field are herbicide and pesticide resistant soybeans, corn, cotton, and canola. Other crops grown commercially and/or field-tested include sweet potato with increased iron and vitamins that may alleviate chronic malnutrition in Asian countries, rice with increased iron and vitamins that may alleviate chronic malnutrition in Asian countries, and a variety of plants that can withstand weather extremes.
