Genetic engineering in Agriculture is the point where technology blends with nature to bring the best possible output. With the rapid advances in biotechnology, a number of geneti-cally modified (GM) crops or transgenic crops carrying novel traits have been developed and released for com-mercial agriculture production. Application in food industry Genetic engineering finds application in food industry which is a result of modification of the genetic material of plants or animals. 0000119925 00000 n 0000036578 00000 n Key Terms. 53 86 e@*��Z��\-�����p����(�����A�c��'�o� ɥ��ʏVz֨�O[��Q%��4w��$ZQLrr_�u��i�$B4�u�d�ۨkT(Q\�V؆�j0�ֱ�1�5��=�FG��V�j�{��UΌ�rs�>�5'C�1!U��D�:���K/�k����2�!q�����o�]�uC�?
