Caption: Transgenic tomatoes. Abstract image depicting the production of transgenic edible tomatoes by genetic engineering. The syringe represents the introduction of genes into the tomatoes. Genetic engineering makes it possible to introduce genes into an organism that may have originated in an entirely different species - a feat that is impossible to achieve by conventional breeding. These genes may make the tomatoes resistant to fungal moulds, or enable the fruit to ripen without softening which improves their flavour.
