Transcript of Genetic Engineering

What is Genetic
Engineering? Benefits to Humans of Genetically Modifying Animals Genetically Modified Foods - Advantages
* Increase crops production
* Add additional nutrient to crops
* Economical friendly
- Cheaper
- Increase profit - Disadvantages
* Destroying biodiversity
* Contaminating organic farms
* Lead to long term health problems
- Permanent brain damage
- Cancers
- Reproductive problem -Increases efficiency and yield of animal products

-Aids in medicinal research and testing


-Produces valuable synthetic substances more economically (spider-silk)
Modification of DNA by adding, removing
or substituting the genetic material
