A genetically modified organism is when a gene from one organism is purposely moved to improve or change another organism in a laboratory. It changed farming by being more resistant to weeds and being easier to manage. A PROS is that it is resistant to pests and diseases, and sometimes higher in nutrition value. Some CONS are that you are mixing genes from different organisms, also some are marketed without even labeling them.
