This involves using scientific techniques to modify the genetic material (gene) of plants, animals and microorganisms in order to obtain a desired trait in a modified organism or species. saved saved As i was discussing before in the section of increased nutritional value about how recombinant dna technology was used to activate and increase the amount of beta-carotene in what came to be known as ‘golden rice’.
