Analyzing the genes of ancient potatoes helps to improve future potato varieties The enormous diversity of ancient / native potatoes can still be seen in countries like Peru, where many of these varieties are still grown.
The story of LY038 corn can tell us much about the food safety risks of the GMO potatoes I developed. LY038 corn was engineered to contain high levels of the amino acid lysine and was intended as a nutritionally boosted feed for livestock.
Ok, But How Long Have GMOs Been Around in the Modern Sense? Well, it all started with the discovery and isolation of the DNA in 1935. After a few decades of studying the DNA and its interaction with chemical and biological agents, the recombinant DNA was created in 1973. 2 years later, a group of elite lawyers, doctors, and scientists looked at the data and created a set of guidelines on the ...
Sweet potatoes are actually 8,000 year old GMOs. Photo courtesy of Shutterstock. Take the sweet potato, for example.
