Infographics: How Crops are Genetically ModifiedFebruary 27, 2019
Genetic Literary Project released a page of infographics showing How Crops are Genetically Modified. Various forms of breeding were compared, including traditional, mutagenesis, gene silencing, genetic engineering, and gene editing, in terms of how many genes are altered in the process and which require safety tests. It was highlighted in text that "Undesirable, unintended effects rarely occur in the final product of any crop, regardless which process is used."
