Transcript of GMOs

A technique that delivers genes to patient's cells to treat or prevent diseases

May treat the underlying genetic cause and not just the symptoms of the disease

Still being tested for its efficacy and safeness
Give crops multiple resistances

Cultivate desired components such as nutrients and vitamins

Vastly increase overall food production
Arguments Against
Benefits of GMOs
What is Synthetic Biology?
The design and construction of new biological functions and system not found in nature.
The Process
Complications of GMOs

Gene Therapy
What are GMOs?
Living organisms whose genetic material has been manipulated.

Inserting a gene from one species into the genome of an entirely different species.
There's not enough research to conclude whether or not they are safe

There are studies linking GMOs with major illnesses

Reduces biodiversity
What is Gene Therapy?
Case Study
Approaches of GT
Replace a mutated gene with a healthy one

Inactivate a mutated gene

Inserting a new gene to fight diseases
Research Ethics
GMO Video

Chinese researchers had, for the very first time, manipulated a human embryo and potentially impacted the germ line
Designer Babies: In the future we may be able to use genetic technologies to modify embryos and choose desirable or cosmetic characteristics.
