According to many Rabbinical authorities,
gene transplantation performed on plants,
and hybridization of seeds, do not violate
the Biblical injunctions against "mixing"

to the late Rabbi S.Z.Auerbach in the
article on Heredity (Torashah) in the
Encyclopedia of Jewish Medical Ethics,
vol.6, col. 575.
