The sixth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation premiered on CBS on September 22, 2005 and ended May 18, 2006. The series stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger.
Brass, now partnered with Sofia Curtis, finds himself caught in a shootout that leaves one officer dead, and a Latino community enraged ("A Bullet Runs Through It"), before finding himself critically injured in a hostage standoff ("Bang-Bang"), in the sixth season of CSI. Meanwhile, Grissom and Willows reunite in order to investigate their toughest cases yet, including the death of a movie star ("Room Service"), a corpse discovered at a suburban home ("Bite Me"), a mass suicide at a cult ("Shooting Stars"), and an apparent suicide ("Secrets and Flies"), as Nick comes to terms with his PTSD ("Bodies in Motion"), and later tracks down a missing child ("Gum Drops"). Also this season, Greg hunts the head of a civil war reenactor ("Way to Go"), Grissom investigates the death of a psychic ("Spellbound"), and Sara comes face to face with her toughest adversary yet ("The Unusual Suspect").
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques (i.e. genetically engineered organism). GMOs are the source of medicines and genetically modified foods and are also widely used in scientific research and to produce other goods.The term GMO is very close to the technical legal term, 'living modified organism', defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which regulates international trade in living GMOs (specifically, "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology").
A more specifically defined type of GMO is a "Transgenic Organism". This is an organism whose genetic makeup has been altered by the addition of genetic material from another, unrelated organism. This should not be confused with the more general way in which "GMO" is used to classify genetically altered organisms, as typically GMOs are organisms whose genetic makeup has been altered without the addition of genetic material from an unrelated organism.
