Transcript of MEDICINAL EGGS

MEDICINAL EGGS Focuses on creating food, animals and plants (for the need humans) Also known as GE Animal Genetic Engineering Branch
of biology It’s when scientist can duplicate and add on genes to the animal’s chromosome to make meat more satisfying
But some people find
Genetic is disturbing The risk of GE; Genetically
Modified organism
may be better adapted
to some place in nature.
GE is also used
to clone animals The process of GE is a
common topic for
scientist and scholars alike
Genetic Engineering Elhaq Latief MEDICINAL EGGS The chicken has a storied hsitory in medicine today Scientist research the sheep have produced a genetically modified rooster whose female descendants, lay eggs that produce medicines in place of a protein in white eggs They used a virus called lentivirus to introduce a gene into fertilized chicken embryos that trigger the drugs to produce than protein ovalbumin, it normally makes up roughly 54% of egg whites. The researches showed the resultant cockerels for one that produced the new gene its semen. They then bred him with normal hens to produce a flock of chickens that carried the inserted gene thereby producing medicines in their egg's whites.

MEDICINAL EGGS British scientists have created a breed of genetically modified hens that produce cancer-fighting medicines in their eggs The animals have had human genes added to their DNA so that human proteins are secreted into the whites of their eggs MEDICINAL EGGS Good and Bad
of The new technique of genetic engineering presents problems on many levels Bad Widespread Crop Failure Health Hazards
