Genetically Modified Organisms for Agricultural Food Production
The Extent of the Art and the State of the Science
Genetically modified (GM) crops are now part of mainstream agriculture, and the trend towards increased use of GM organisms in plant and animal agriculture will undoubtedly continue. This chapter provides a brief outline of the technologies used to produce GM crop plants and livestock, the means whereby GM products can be detected as minor contaminants in food, and some of the difficulties and paradoxes that must be faced in attempts to label products derived from GM organisms.
