How genetic engineering works
By: Tamara Haddock
Scientists preform genetic engineering any time they chance the natural occurring DNA of an organism. The oldest form of genetic engineering is selective breeding. While it is not changing an individual group of cells on the microscopic level, it is using the knowledge of how...

The cell is the basic unit of life. Inside a cell is a hereditary marker called DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid. The DNA contains the sequence which has vital information on the genetic makeup of an organism. Genes are responsible of the traits inherited by a...

Genetic engineering or genetic modification is a relatively new branch of science. Bacteria were the first to be genetically modified in 1973, followed by mice in 1974. Genetic engineering has seen a fair share of controversies from people who believe that it is playing God...

Genetic engineering is a set of molecular biology techniques that aim at manipulating an organism’s DNA to achieve a particular aim. As Biology Online notes in its definition of the term, genetic engineering can be applied to a number of fields for a number...

As we understand genetics better the possibility of altering or engineering the genetics of ourselves or, more easily, our children, has moved out of the realm of science fiction into a real possibility. There are a number of different types of genetic engineering, from the...

Anyone who has read a few books on science fiction will have a vast encyclopedia of knowledge about the potential terrors and incredible benefits that can come from genetic engineering. From simple genetically engineered plants and animals that produce more food and help people to...
Examples of genetic engineering

Genetic engineering has become popular in the 21st century. Researchers and scientists have made it possible for the human race to witness amazing creations that have only been possible through the use of this technology. Genetic engineering is used to make any living organism change...

In today's world, genetic engineering is almost commonplace. There are many things we use and consume that are the result of genetic engineering. We either do not know or do not really care for the most part. But, a lot of things would not have...

Once simply fodder for science fiction works, genetic engineering has become a very real and important aspect of modern science. The process is essentially inserting new genetic material into an existing genome to change the organism's expressed traits. The first successful genetic engineering took place...

Genetic engineering is, at best, a debatable branch of science. For some, it's the wave of the future: a method for perfecting the human genome, discarding flaws from infants before they're even born and ensuring they live longer, healthier lives. For others, it's an abomination:...
