Gm Food Vs Selective Breeding
This is an important topic in relation to our food security.
Gm food vs selective breeding. Natural breeding takes place in selective breeding while artificial breeding takes place in genetic engineering. This raises the question of when a plant breeder might choose a gm approach vs a conventional. It underlies the concept of transgenics in which an organism is modified to incorporate new genes that lead to new characteristics such as the production of proteins for human health or the expression of a gene for herbicide resistance in plants to name just two applications. In selective breeding the plants natural ways of reproduction are turned to human ends.
The for and against but whatever conclusion you arrive at about gm food. Genetic modification gm is the alteration of the genome of a plant or animal by the addition of new genetic material. In some cases conventional breeding will be the best way to transfer them and in others gm might be easier or indeed the only way they can be transferred. In conclusion six arguments for gmo s a gmo is an organism whose genetic material has been changed using genetic engineering techniques and selective breeding is the process by which humans breed other animals and plants for particular traits.
Our children deserve to know because without that knowledge they are more likely to accept gm food without questioning it and i fear that is the plan. Some researchers believe that in terms of urgency it s as important as the issue of climate change. Before we knew what dna was humans were moving the genes we found useful into our best crops. Now that we know how gmos are made let s take a look at selective breeding.
Gm foods will be better for us and. For more than 80 years breeders have routinely used radiation or chemicals on seeds to scramble plant dna to generate new traits a process known as mutagenesis. New characteristics can be introduced into crops using either conventional or gm approaches. To make gm plants or animals the genes must.
