Caption: Genetically engineered maize. This is an abstract depiction of genetic engineering. The syringe represents the introduction of genes into the maize. Genetic engineering is a controversial technique whereby genes are artificially introduced into an organism to produce a desired property - such as resistance to disease or a longer shelf life. Maize was one of the first crops to have commercially viable genetically modified variants - such crops have been grown in large quantities since 1996.
