Running head: GENETIC TECHNOLOGY1Genetically Modified Crops (GMCs)Name:Institution:Course:Date:2GENETIC TECHNOLOGYGenetically Modified Crops (GMCs)IntroductionGenetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are organisms that have had their geneticcomposition modified and manipulated artificially in laboratories through a genetic engineeringtechnology (GET). The relatively new frontier in science produces unstable cocktail of animals,bacteria, plants and viral genes that do not occur naturally or in the old traditional methods ofcrossbreeding (Ahmed, 2013). For many centuries, farmers have had to cultivate crops with anaim of achieving certain attractive traits.Genetic engineering technology gives an opportunity to achieve desirable offspring traitsin a quicker and more precise way. As such. Genetically Modified Crops portray better yields,prolonged shelf-life, better nutritional value as well as enhanced resistance to insect pests, frostand drought conditions (Fresco, 2011). Although genetic engineering comes along with myriadof benefits, it is pertinent to note that this technology has its own setbacks. Further analysis ofthe issue behind Genetically Modified Crops (GMCs) follows in the discussion below.Biological basis of Genetically Modified Crops (GMCs)Several techniques for production of Genetically Modified Plants are in existent today.One of the most notable technique involves manipulation of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) of aplant in order to come
