Transcript of Genetic Engineering

What do scientists use genetic engineering for?
to produce plants that have a higher nutritional value or can tolerate exposure to herbicides.
Can genetic engineering create superheroes?

Hulk's superpowers can be explained by gamma radiation-induced DNA reconfiguration.
Genetic Engineering
Fun facts:
The human body contains about 100 trillion cells.
Robert Downey Jr. Delivers a Real Bionic Arm:
Definition:
Genetic Engineering is the science of making changes to the genes of a plant or animal to produce a desired result.
A clone is a cell, group of cells, or organism that contains genetic information identical to that of the parent cell or organism.
Captain America's superpowers can be explained by turning on genes that make your muscles physically large.

Our DNA is 98% identical to that of chimpanzees.
Despite all that scientists know about DNA, a staggering 97% of all human DNA has no known function.
Is cloning possible?
The first clones produced by humans as long as 2,000 years ago were plants developed from grafts and stem cuttings.

used by scientists to enhance or modify the characteristics of an individual organism.

Transhumanism is an international and intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and creating widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.
Transhumanism
Transgenic
The branch of biology concerned with transgenic organisms.
Transgenesis is the process of introducing a transgene into a living organism so that the organism will exhibit a new property.
What if we, in the future, live in a world with a real bionic person among us?
