Genetically engineered maize. Conceptual image representing the genetic engineering of food, showing a maize cob (Zea mays) being injected with a syringe. Genetic engineering involves altering an organism's DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). This inherited substance controls the development and functioning of living organisms. Traits such as pesticide resistance can be introduced to plants to increase their productivity.
