    INTRODUCTION Genetic engineering is a technique involving the artificial addition, deletion or rearrangement of sequences of bases in DNA in order to alter the observable form and function of an organism (Hynes, 1989). Animal cell and tissue culture techniques are used concurrently with genetic engineering. Tissue culture is the general term for the culture of cells, tissues, or organ of animal on a suitable environment (Ryan, 2008). Involvement of both these techniques can be called as genetic engineering

    Genetic engineering is simply defined as; “the deliberate modification of the characteristics of an organism by manipulating its genetic material, be it an animal, plant or a bacterium”. Even human genes over the years have been manipulated to change that of even eye color and recently that of attempting to create “designer babies”. Genetic engineering or Gene therapy should only be used for the treatment of serious or infectious diseases, as well as cell regeneration. Genetic engineering on a whole

    For years now, scientists have been researching different genetic disorders and want to find a way that could possibly elimiate this concern. There is also a technique called germline engineering that would allow the gene to be transformed through one individual and it would then pass on to future generations (Hurlbut). It has been said that, “genetic modification techniques are thought to take

    Genetic engineering, by definition, is the deliberate modification of the characteristics of an organism by manipulating its genetic material. There are two types of cells in the body: somatic (cells that are found in the body) and germ-line (cells that are found in sperm and eggs), and therefore two types of gene therapies. Somatic cell therapy consists of genes being introduced to a patient in order to help them recover from a disease (e.g. Cystic Fibrosis), and germ line therapy consists of changes

    Tay-Sachs is an inherited genetic disorder and it is linked with genes. The infant born with Tay-Sachs will gradually get worse and lose motor skill, lose their sight and hearing, suffer seizures, have intellectual disabilities, and die during early

    full of genetic wonders. Genetic engineering is a huge step in the expansion of human health and welfare. This new technique is already used in foods, but there is great potential for it in gene therapy and other medical procedures. The process of food engineering alleviates the need for insecticides while increasing crop yield. Gene therapy removes diseased genes and inserts the new and improved. Some medicines to benefit the human condition can only be created through genetic engineering. Without

    INTRODUCTION: THE DEBATE OF GENETIC ENGINEERING One of the biggest progressing open debates in the biomedical engineering field today manages the moral and ethical aspects of genetic engineering. While the innovations of new advances today are commonly prestigious and praised, the general accord on genetic engineering innovations is undecided due its dubious nature dealing with human nature specifically. Some critics of genetic engineering claimed that it is ethically wrong to modify the human species

    does work it is a life changer let alone. Genetic Engineering is a very strenuous task that sometimes does not always work. With the right tools and knowledge of basic biology of DNA, any scientist could do it (Brooks). While genetic engineering in reproduction can be dangerous, meticulous and can be viewed as unnatural, it should be done in the United States because it allows parents to be in control of their decisions and outcomes, it can eliminate genetic disorders, and it can improve the

    Genetic engineering is a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells, including the transfer of genes within and across species boundaries to produce improved or novel organisms. The techniques involve sophisticated manipulations of genetic material and other biologically important chemicals. Genes are the chemical blueprints that determine an organism's traits. Moving genes from one organism to another transfers those traits. Through genetic engineering, organisms can be given

    the rapid increase of human population, scientists and researchers start to explore how biological technologies can help with issues such as world hunger and insufficient food sources. In order to find a best possible solution to the issues, genetic engineering has been used more and more often. Some people also think Genetically Modified Crops could be a solution of reduction of food resources. Scientists and farmers start looking at preserving the seeds of plants for a longer period of time by using
