Humans have long altered the genes of organisms through selective breeding (e.g. cattle, dogs, corn). Recently, however, advances in our understanding of DNA have enabled us to modify organisms by directly altering the genes of these organisms, a technique called genetic engineering. The rapid advances in genetic engineering have brought about great possibilities for ways to combat world hunger, malnutrition, illness, and infertility. With these advances, though, have come great ethical questions about how much we should manipulate DNA, or whether we should manipulate it at all.
You will create a poster with information about a current (2010 – present) topic in genetic engineering.
