Genetics Meets Innovation

In the field of genetics, scientists develop stronger species of corn and other crops through a process known as “seed, select, and amplify.”  First, they use a diverse range of seeds to grow several different varieties of the crop under various conditions, such as drought, frost, heavy rainfall, and so on.  Then they select the seeds from the sturdiest and most productive strains of each generation of crops and cross-breed those with the desired trait for use in the next generation of test crops.  Ultimately, over many generations, the .....
