Transgenic Plants and The Future

Transgenic plants are plants that have genes in them coming from a different plant species. Such genes can be transferred through genetic engineering at the laboratory. Such modification can also occur during ordinary hybridization by cross-pollination of plants. Such genetic modification of different plants is being developed in order to enable scientists and researchers to create plants that will exhibit specific characteristics that are inherent in the genes that were transferred into the hos…
