—There is no doubt that the climate change is a
pressing worldwide issue, considering its impacts on both the
environment and the society, and various scientific means are
to be adopted to solve this problem. We conducted a
prospective study of GMO in Republic of Korea and
recognized its potential to solve the problem of climate change.
Its ability to endure harsh conditions and improve
productivity can extend the range of possibilities in restricting
climate change. This thesis shows the status quo in GMO
research, discusses toward which direction it should gear to
promote further development, and addresses the pros and cons
of GMO, along with our own outlooks on prospects of future
—Biosafety, climate change, genetically
modified organisms (GMO), genetic engineering.
