Prospective Study of GMO in Korea: Harnessing GMO for Solving Problems of Climate Change

Sungmin Lee and Ha Eun Chun
Abstract—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 GMO research.

Index Terms—Biosafety, climate change, genetically modified organisms (GMO), genetic engineering.
