Biotechnology research. Plant biologist examining transgenic rice plants (Oryza sativa) growing in a containment greenhouse. The cells of transgenic plants contain genetic material that has been artificially introduced, in addition to their own. The modification of a plant's genetic content can be used to introduce new characteristics, such as increased yields. Photographed at the University of Milan, Italy.
