December,4,2017Benefits of Genetic Engineering Geneticengineering has been a controversial idea for the past decade.
Geneticengineering, is the applied techniques of genetics and biotechnology used tocut up and join together genetic material. When genetic engineering firstemerged, it referred to several methods used for “manipulation of organismsthrough heredity and reproduction”. Genetic engineering carried both means ofartificial selection and arbitration of biomedical techniques. Nevertheless, duringthe 20th century genetic engineering referred to the technique of “recombinantDNA technology (gene cloning), in which DNA molecules form two or more sourcesare combined either within cells or in vitro and are then inserted into hostorganisms in which they are able to propagate.” Although genetic engineeringfirst began through choosing your baby’s genes; however, it expanded intoseveral fields. The fields of genetic engineering are broken into thefollowing: medical treatments, pregnancy cases, agriculture, and designerbabies (ideal person). People right nowturn to genetic engineering: to increase the rate of production and to ensure quality level of what’s produced in thefield of agriculture for example.
Currently genetic engineering is happening inthe United States and Europe however it will progress into other countries allaround the world. The process of genetic engineering is asfollows: “The primers are fabricated sothat the ends of the products contain corresponding sequences. Once the PCRproducts are assorted, denatured, and reannealed, the strands having the similarsequences at their 3′ ends overlap and turn as primers for each other. Leewayof this overlap by DNA polymerase creates a molecule in which the initial sequencesare ‘spliced’ together.
This method has momentous benefits over standardrecombinant DNA techniques.”
