Abstract: Conventional breeding and genetic engineering are different but complementary ways of improving crops, and either can be appropriate or inappropriate in particular cases, depending on the breeding objectives. Although neither improvement strategy is totally without risk, the potential for a poor choice of target gene makes regulatory oversight important and obligatory during the development of transgenic crops through genetic engineering.
