can i infuse banana genes with apple genes then infuse said gmo with a coconut Sorry if I am bugging you, but this information is vital to my company. I asked this around early October and this still hasn't been answered. I did see however that other people are waiting around a minimum of one month until their question is answered. I don't understand the hold up. Is the new GMO apple providing some many new things to type about that none of your answering people unavailable at this time. Well, when you do answer this question or the one before, please answer me with the full details. If you haven't read the first post, here is a recap: My company ships GMO's to European countries. They value these resources and are counting on me to deliver on my promise of a banana-apple hybrid bred with coconut. I may have not remembered to tell this the first time, but this is NOT for consuming, I repeat NOT for consuming! My company does the infusing of genes and the genetic parts, but Europe is where the tests happen. So in order for this GMO to even end up in the market, it needs to be shipped to Europe. I need a straight answer to prepare Europe for a hybrid, or for no hybrid. Just tell me if this hybrid is even possible. I can figure the rest out with my scientists and lawyers. Thanks for your time!
