A genetically modified organism (GMO) is any organism in which the genes or other genetic material have been modified by using in vitro (recombinant DNA) techniques. A plant, such as corn or soybean, is considered genetically modified when genetic material from outside of that organism is inserted into its DNA sequence. Plants grown from seed harvested from genetically modified plants will also contain the genetic modification.
