GM tomato. Conceptual image of a tomato with an added (grey) characteristic, with a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) autoradiogram in the background. This image represents the genetic modification of food crops. Genetically modified (GM) tomatoes are available in some countries. Genetic modification is where an organism's DNA is altered to create inherited changes in that organism. The changes can include improved shelf-life and resistance to disease.
