Genetically Modified Organisms: Opening Pandora's Box with Genetically Modified Food

Choice PH, 2013

Genetically modified foods are foods produced from organisms that have had specific changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. These techniques have allowed for the introduction of new crop traits as well as far greater control over a food's genetic structure than previously afforded by methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding. This eBook highlights the history of genetic engineering and the ...


Food Fray: Inside the Controversy over Genetically Modified Food
Lisa H. Weasel

AMACOM, 2008

More than ten years ago, the first genetically modified foods took their place on the shelves of American supermarkets. But while American consumers remained blissfully unconcerned with the new products that suddenly filled their kitchens, Europeans were much more wary of these "Frankenfoods." When famine struck Africa in 2002, several nations refused shipments of genetically modified foods, fueling a controversy that put the issue on the ...


Monsanto vs. the World: The Monsanto Protection Act, GMOs and Our Genetically Modified Future
Jason Louv

Genetically Modified Plants: Assessing Safety and Managing Risk
Roger Hull, G. T. Tzotzos, ...

Academic Press, 2009

A transgenic organism is a plant, animal, bacterium, or other living organism that has had a foreign gene added to it by means of genetic engineering. Transgenic plants can arise by natural movement of genes between species, by cross-pollination based hybridization between different plant species (which is a common event in flowering plant evolution), or by laboratory manipulations by artificial insertion of genes from another species. Methods ...

Genetically Modified Crops (2nd Edition)
Nigel G. Halford

Imperial College Press, 2011

Plant molecular biology came to the fore in the early 1980s and there has been tremendous growth in the subject since then. The study of plant genes and genomes and the development of techniques for the incorporation of novel or modified genes into plants eventually led to the commercialisation of genetically modified (GM) crops in the mid-1990s. This was seen as the start of a biotechnological revolution in plant breeding. However, plant ...
