Successful fertilization requires the pollinating plant to be genetically different from the seed parent plant. This is the reason why such species always exhibit a degree of difference and diversity in their population. Such varieties of self-sterile plants are termed “open-pollinated varieties”. Open-pollinated varieties are subject to constant change and evolution, which has two effects: firstly, maintenance breeding is required to keep the desired characteristics; and secondly, every openpollinated variety contains a certain undeveloped future potential.

Bacteria living on potato plants made the plants sensitive to frosts. Lindow wanted to release GM bacteria, which did not make the plants frost-sensitive, to compete with the non-GM bacteria on the leaves of potato plants; the potato plants were able to withstand temperatures as low as minus five degrees. 1984 — Scientists stumble upon DNA fingerprinting. Alec Jeffries from the University of Leicester in the UK created the first DNA fingerprint while researching the evolution of genes. Also in the 1980s, Nobel Prize winner Kary Mullis came up with an idea leading to the development of a technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
