Expand GMO. How is it different from a hybrid?

GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism.
It differs from a hybrid because in a hybrid, cross is done between total genomes of two species or strains, whereas in a GMO, foreign genes from entirely different species are introduced in the organism and are usually maintained as extra chromosomal entity or are integrated into the genome of the organisln.
