Genetically Modified Organisms and Choices in Alaska
Publication Number: FGV-00500
Author/Sponsor: Casey Matney
The creation and use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is not something everyone agrees on. Because the consequences of genetic engineering can be good, bad or unknown, each new creation must examined on its own merits. This publication provides an overview of genetic engineering with examples of actual cases and their outcomes. An appendix provides basic information about genes, how they change (mutate) and what the possible consequences of change might be.
