Genetically modified plant, conceptual artwork. Plant stem and leaves forming a helical structure that could represent a genetically modified (GM) plant. Genetic modification of plants involves altering their DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), the chemical that encodes every cell's structure, function and behaviour, to produce desirable characteristics (such as disease resistance). It is controversial whether GM foods are safe to eat and what their environmental effects will be.
