Transcript of GMOs
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
Benefits of GMOs
What is Synthetic Biology?
The design and construction of new biological functions and system not found in nature.
Complications of GMOs
AP Lang Research Project
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
What is Gene Therapy?
Approaches of GT
Replace a mutated gene with a healthy one
Inactivate a mutated gene
Inserting a new gene to fight diseases
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.
