Chemical engineers, biological engineers, plant biologists, agricultural biologists, microbiologists, and food scientists are some of the many disciplines that may work on genetically modified food. However, that's not all that they do. If this is a topic you are interested in, you can major in any of the above and do research projects in labs that work on related projects.
