    A genetically modified organism (G.M.O.) is any organism whose genes or genetic material has been modified in a way that does not occur naturally through mating or natural recombination. An example of a G.M.O. is Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) maize. This is maize that has been modified to contain a gene from a bacterium that gives it built-in resistance to the maize stalk borer.
