Genetic Engineering allows scientists to transfer genes from one organism to an organism of a different species; and in Selective Breeding organisms within the same species wi…th certain desirable characteristics are mated to produce a new variety. The difference between the two is in Genetic Engineering manually transfers genes between species and Selective Breeding mates varieties within the same species to produce a new variety.
Selective breeding uses natural biological means to alter genetics--example is using a pollen from one strain to fertilize another strain and so "cross" the gene pools.While o…n the on the hand genetic engineering artificially goes into the chromosomes to edit them--an unnatural process. Example--a cold water fish gene is put into a crop so that it won't freeze in the winter. This would not naturally occur.
natural is natural and selective is when a human selects one breed and mixes with another.
In selective breeding the traits that the offspring inheirits is controlled by the person who is doing the breeding. For example if a chihuahua breeder is looking to make smal…ler dogs, they are gonna breed two small dogs with the hope that the puppies will inheirit their parents traits. Natural selection on the other hand is not controlled by humans. It is when offspring inheirit traits that make it more likely to survive. Organisms with certain traits are more likely to survive and reproduce. If there are some mice born, some in the litter are white and the others are brown. When these mice go to find food, the white mice are more easily seen by the keen eyes of an owl than the brown ones. Therefore the brown ones are more likely to reach reproductive age and producing mice. This continues in a cycle until the mice end up almost all being brown.
Selective breeding happens within closely related species. useful Techniques GM Food produces a wide range of characteristics that aren't possible with selective breeding. I…t can alter an organism's DNA with much greater precision-genes can also be transfered or manipulated
selective breeding is basically the artificial version of natural selection natural selection is where those who adapt and survive pass there genes on to the next generation w…hile the others die off removing the weak and adding the strong for a example. giraffes with longer necks will be able to reach the higher leaves on a tree in a famine than those with short necks and therefore they will survive and pass on the long neck gene and the short neck gene will die off selective breeding is where you get 2 particular specimens of the same species (preferably) with the same gene and breed them usually this is done for a particular trait that the breeder wants in the next generation example a long tail short hair and long face in dogs so they can be sold into a area that has a higher temperature or long hair short tail and short face for in colder environments this tecnique has been used since the dawn of man and is the reason we have so many breeds of cats and dogs
When you modify genetic material directly, rather than going through natural breeding, you * have more direct control over what to change * can mix genes from spec…ies that it wouldn't be possible to breed naturally As an example, the GloFish (see related link) is a fluorescent small fish sold for aquariums. The fluorescence was created by taking a zebra fish and adding genetic material from jellyfish and coral. This would not be possible with selective breeding, as you can't mate a coral and a fish. Genetic modification opens a whole new range of possibilities. Along with the associated risks.
cloning is when you create an exact duplicate but selective breeding is when the animals reproduce to create an even better animal x
Well the crossed breed lab has the qualities of the lab and of the other dog breed the purebred lab has only the qualities of a lab. Some say that crossbreed dogs are smarter …since they have two or more breeds in them. I would have to agree I own two lab mixes and they are smart dogs.
In selective breeding the owners of the pets will choose mates that have selected characteristics that are wanted in the offspring. They may also be repeated with future o…ffspring. In natural breeding it is natural selection that choose and in cats their may even be more than one father and different offspring. In summary the main differences are: Selective humans choose partners with named specific characteristics where as natural if often more first come first served. Also selective breeding is often carried on through the generations whereas natural does not. Similarities are after partners are choose the rest of the process is the same.
Selective breeding is when farmers or bioligists breed certain animals together because of their traits. This is man made. For example, cattle are breeded together based on po…sitive traits. Natural Selection, however, is natural obviously. Here the concept of "the survival of the fittest" is put into place. Animals that run the fastest, have the longest necks, etc. tend to survive. Then, when these animals breed, their characteristics are passed on from generation to generation and become more common.
Breeding is just breeding any pair of parents together to get offspring, whereas selected breeding is choosing a certain set of parents and targeting a few specific traits you… want the offspring to have, such as fur length, coloration, or body shape.
Selective breeding is a way of creating stronger, more efficient animals. It is reliable and can increase the price of animals because of their garuntee.
No, in most cases it doesn't. Cross-breeding is actually supposed to enhance fertility, especially when crossing on purebreed with another to get an F1 animal.
Artificial selection is controlled totally from the outside and the selector is usually man. Men want certain attributes in organisms they domesticate and these attributes wou…ld not necessarily contribute to the organisms survival and reproduction if the organism was not protected by the artificial selector, man.
If you mean the domestic breeds then yes. They are all a part of the same species, Oryctolagus cuniculus (the European Rabbit), and thus can interbreed and produce viable offs…pring, this is also true of interbreeding wild European rabbits and domestic ones. But it probably would not work if you tried two cross two different species of wild rabbits (or other lagomorphs) because, in part they have different gene counts. So you could not cross an eastern cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus) with your pet rabbit, but you could cross a Rex and an English Spot, since they are just two breeds of domestic rabbit.
In a very limited way: natural selection and selective breeding are almost exactly alike, except that in the case of selective breeding (artificial selection) humans are i…nvolved in selecting which individuals get to raise offspring.
