Transgenic tomato genome sequencing. Hand holding a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) autoradiogram of the genome of a GM tomato. The tomato has been genetically modified to be seedless. The bands on the film show the position of the four nucleotide bases from DNA. The sequence of bases make up genes, which encode an organism's genetic information. A gene has been inserted into the tomato plant to prevent the development of seeds. Photographed at the University of Verona, Italy.
