A webinar presented by Dr. Robin Groose, on Friday, October 31, 2014.
The U.S. National Academy of Science has noted that in popular parlance the term Genetically Modified (GM) often is used interchangeably with Genetically Engineered (GE). NAS goes to say that GM refers to a range of methods used to alter the genetic composition of a plant or animal, including traditional hybridization and breeding and that GE is one type of GM that involves making an intentional targeted change in a plant or animal gene sequence to effect a specific result. In this seminar, Dr. Groose discusses how many modern plant cultivars involve significant GM via myriad breeding techniques and multiple biotechnologies. He compares and contrasts GE with several classical and ultra-modern plant breeding techniques, as well as with biotechnologies that are not GE.
