Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are any living organisms that have their genome artificially manipulated in a laboratory by genetic engineering. GMOs have been a topic of controversy as they have become a norm in our nation’s food supply in the past decade. While many people are veered away by the idea of having a natural food’s DNA changed in a lab, these changes have allowed food to last longer, be resistant to temperature and even have increased nutrients as seen in “golden rice”. This fear of the “unnatural” has caused a movement to require all GMO foods to be labeled in grocery stores. This podcast features horticulturist Greg Bothwell and UW-Madison genetics professor Dr. Christopher Day.
