Correct! A genetic engineer

Correct! A genetic engineer could, for instance, replace the inefficient C3 photosynthesis genes with the more efficient C4 genes and receive better yields, feed more people for less money. Both are naturally evolved processes. Using seeds from only the corn that produces the most oil (selection) is a form of genetic engineering. That doesn't necessarily mean the result is bad. I'm not defending Monsanto here -- not one little bit. I'm pointing out that a lot of people around here automatically freak out when the term GMO gets thrown out there without any further study into the issue.
