Genetically modified organisms (GMO)
Genetically modified organisms (GMO)What is GMO?are the animals and plants that are genetically modified in order to develop the useful or desired traits
techniques used to carry out genetic modification are known as genetic engineering techniquesrecombinant DNA technology is used for creating a new set of genes by combining the DNA molecules from different sources
DNA is transferred into the organism in question and it results into the formation of two different types of GMOs (transgenic and cisgenic) based on the origin of DNA being used.
