Genetically engineered tomato. Conceptual image representing the genetic engineering of food, showing a tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) being injected with a syringe. Genetic engineering invo- lves 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 introd- uced to plants to increase their productivity.
