Expand GMO. How is it different from a hybrid?

Answer :

GMO stands for genetically modified organism. The Genetically modified organisms are different from hybrids as:

• Hybrids are produced by cross breeding or cross pollinating two different animal or plant species, whereas the production of GMO involves insertion of a gene into a new organism so as to express a specific trait or character.


• GMO involves a more specialized set up compared to hybrids which are much more easily produced.
