“Some have estimated that tinkering with Rubisco [the enzyme responsible for converting carbon dioxide into sugar] and ways to boost the concentration of carbon dioxide around it could generate up to a 60% increase in the yields of crops such as rice and wheat.” (http://www.nature.com/news/hacked-photosynthesis-could-boost-crop-yields-1.15949)

Tinkering: the watchword of genetic modification.
