Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) & Biosafety
Genetically Modified Organisms (gmos) are organisms in which the genetic material has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating and/or natural recombination. Gmos can be bacteria, fungi, animals, plants and viruses, with the exception of human beings since there are legal constraints. All organisms contain genes, which are lengths of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) present in every cell. Genes carry the information necessary to produce the numerous proteins that determine the organism's particular form and function. Therefore, genes are responsible for the specific characteristics of organisms.
