Genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using techniques in genetics generally known as recombinant DNA technology. Recombinant DNA technology is the ability to combine DNA molecules from different sources into one molecule . Thus, the expression of certain traits the phenotype of the organism or the proteins it produces can be altered through the modification of its genes.
