Genetic Engineering

Genetic engineering is the modification of an organism's genetic composition by artificial means, often involving the transfer of specific traits, or genes, from one organism into a plant or animal of an entirely different species.

INTRODUCTION

TEAM

Genetically modified organism, GMOs, are mostly transgenic which means they contain genes pinched from something else like bacteria, viruses, other plants or even animals.

Genetic engineering, also called genetic modification, is the direct human manipulation of an organism’s genome using modern DNA technology. It involves the introduction of foreign DNA or synthetic genes into the organism of interest.

Importance

DNA

Genetically modified organism, GMOs, are mostly transgenic which means they contain genes pinched from something else like bacteria, viruses, other plants or even animals.

What does it do?

What does it do?

Genetic engineering could also create unknown side effects or outcomes. Certain changes in a plant or animal could cause unpredicted allergic reactions in some people which, in its original form, did not occur. Other changes could make an organism toxic to humans or other organisms.

Effects

Genetic Engineering

Genetic engineering, also called transformation, works by physically removing a gene from one organism and inserting it into another, giving it the ability to express the trait encoded by that gene.

How is it done?
