Love them or loathe them, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are very much part of modern life.
It has been normal practise in livestock breeding to select individuals with desirable traits to breed together in the hope of achieving multiple desirable traits in the offspring.
A simplistic example, crossing a horse known for speed with a horse of desirable coat colour would ideally give you a fast horse with the desired coat colour.
Of course, this form of artificial selection does not always work out exactly as planned every time. This is where GMOs step in.
Today we can insert genes from one species into a completely unrelated species through genetic engineering.
This is like taking the instruction...
