Cuba's interest in GM crops seemed to begin as a spin off of their vaccination biotech program. 

But now they're manipulating genetic material to increase the protein and mineral content of various staples such as potatos, corn and rice. Not a bad idea really.   

Within the context of their overall approach, which stresses organic cultivation, they'll probably end up with a hybrid organic/GM approach.  

So I think John makes a good point.
