By use of genetic engineering techniques, an organism may be able to be genetically modified. Various organisms ranging from bacteria to food products have been genetically modified in the society.

Bt cotton is an example of genetically modified organism.

A genetically modified organism is a life form that has had its DNA code modified or changed. Genetically modified crops and farm animals are very common nowadays. When a gene from one organism is purposely moved to improve or change another organism in a laboratory, the result is a genetically modified organism (GMO).

A Genetically modified organism is an organism that has had its DNA altered by human intentional activity in a laboratory.

Genetically modified food is created in a lab by removing a gene from one organism and forcing it into an organism of a different species.

A genetically modified organism results from a gene being removed from one organism and artificially inserted into an organism of a totally different species. This is a simplified explanation and the process is done in a lab.

Animals have been genetically engineered to produce more food. Food that is genetically modified is referred to as a GMO or Genetically Modified Organism.

They explain what a genetically modified food is this way: "A genetically modified (GM) food or genetically modified organism (GMO) results from the use of recombinant DNA biotechnological procedures that allow the genetic makeup of a food or organism to be altered in some way. This 'recombination' can be accomplished by moving genes from one organism to another or by changing genes in an organism that are already present. These changes result in the expression of attributes not found in the original organism."

GMO stands for a Genetically Modified Organism.

Genetically modified organisms are modified on a genetic level to benefit humans. How this can pose a threat to a population or ecosystem, is that if the genetically modified organism were to somehow create a mutation, and pass that on, it could be damaging to the future generations in reducing their health or other issues may arise. It can also be damaging to an ecosystem if a genetically modified organism were to escape into a wild population and change it.

No one discovered genetically modified organisms. Such organisms are created by people working in laboratories. In 1953 it was discovered that DNA is the material that carries genes, the information that defines and structures each organism. For the next 50 years people worked to understand DNA and eventually learned how to modify it, in some circumstances. When such a modification is successful, the result is an organism that has been genetically modified - a genetically modified organism.

a mutant... or a genetically modified organism...

GMO stands for genetically modified organism.

Yes. Genetic engineering is basically just modifying the genes of a cell or organism.

genetically modified tomatoes are exactly what the name implies i.e tomatoes which have been genetically modified. if you want to know what genetic modification is you should not have said your question is different then "what is a genetically modified organism" to my knowledge there are no commercial varieties of genetically modified tomatoes available right now but i know they are working on: roundup ready tomatoes, brackish water tomatoes and varies disease immunities. answers will be answered after an update

NON-GMO means non genetically modified organism.

i think any thing can be genetically modified

The process is called nuclear transfer and the resulting product is a GMO, (Genetically modified organism)

A transgenic organism is an organism that has been modified genetically from a different species to caries traits from another species. One example is a GMO crop.

As far as is known, peaches have not been genetically modified.

there are none that are scientifically proven to harm humans . However it may harm, kill, disable or impair the organism that is modified.

Bt-corn is a type of genetically modified organism, termed GMO. A GMA is a plant or animal that has been genetically modified through the addition of a small amount of genetical material from other organisms through molecular techniques.

A genetically modified organism (GMO) or genetically engineered organism (GEO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. These techniques, generally known as recombinant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources, which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferred into an organism, giving it modified or novel genes. Transgenic organisms, a subset of GMOs, are organisms which have inserted DNA that originated in a different species
