Genetically modified plant, conceptual artwork. Plant stems and leaves forming a structure that echoes a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) double helix. This could represent genetically modified (GM) plants. Genetic modification of plants involves altering their DNA, the chemical that encodes every cell's structure, function and behaviour, to produce desirable characteristics (such as disease resistance). It is controversial whether GM foods are safe to eat and what their environmental effects will be.
