Caption: Transgenic rice research. Researcher experimenting on transgenic rice being cultivated in a greenhouse. He is placing the rice plant in a mesh cover before infecting it with moth larvae to test its resistance to the larva, which normally eat the rice plants. Transgenic plants are ones that have been genetically modified by adding genes from different species. Cultivated rice (Oryza sativa) is a key food crop, forming the staple diet of around half the world's population. Photographed at the French agricultural research institute, CIRAD, in Montpellier, France.
