Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have been used in agriculture for more than 20 years. Although they are planted on millions of acres in the United States, they remain a controversial topic. New methods such as gene editing provide additional tools for genetic modification of crops. The goal of this presentation is to demystify the topic, explain how these methods are used in crop plants, and provide a balanced perspective on the issues that surround the use of GMOs and gene editing.
