Although the idea is far fetched, genetic engineering could be one of the steps required in growing a new organ. Tissue engineering will also play a major part

Study of genetic engineering is to make artificial organs as well in bionics.

Genetic Engineering.....scientists do it

it is used to clone things and make super things.

For genetic engineering:Genetic engineering can stop diseases like hemophilia or colorblindness that are genetic. It can also remove genes that predispose you to (make you more likely to get) cancer. In agriculture, you can create plants that grow quickly and produce healthy food so that impoverished farmers can grow enough to survive. The claims that genetic engineering is dangerous are unfounded. There has never been a case of any problems from genetic engineering that I can think of. Against genetic engineering:Genetic engineering should not be performed on fetuses or embryos, it should only be performed on animals. It is a violation of human rights and if it is performed on an unborn child then that is also a violation. Genetic engineering can be dangerous, too, because genetically modified organisms might be able to spread to other places and take over the ecology.

The nucleic acids DNA and RNA make up genetic material.

No. But maybe in the future someone might want to do some genetic engineering.

Allows scientists to induce a cell to make needed chemicals.

During Genetic Engineering the cells get joined and the nucleus of a cell gets taken out this causes modification but you can also use this process to do cloning which can make an animal/amphibian/mammal look exactly the same

Genetic engineering is important because if we did not have it some people would suffer from not having their cells perform normally and it is used to help make abig amount of medicine, such as insulin, to help people who have diabetes.

To try to make things better. However it doesn't really do much good.

Yes we can transplant a small portion of DNA in another organism by genetic engineering to make transgenic organisms.

AI (artificial insemination), and, arguably, genetic engineering.

You cant make your own DNA, you use certain enzymes to get the part of the DNA that you want to use in genetic engineering.

the one kind of tissue is x-ylem tissue

Genetic engineering has been used for a number of profitable purposes. Monsanto uses it to make genetically modified crops, and farmers who want to grow those crops pay for the genetically modified seeds. Pharmaceutical companies pay for the genetic engineering of bacteria which have been engineered to secrete useful substances such as insulin. Those are the main applications so far. More uses may follow.

They all make the general public feel uncomfortable, yet opinionated?

Genetic engineering is often used in plants (especially plants that provide humans with food) so that the food/fruit/nut/product is bigger, better, and shinier. Genetic engineering can also change the DNA so that a plant can be immune to diseases (or at least fight them) and make them more resilient to heat/drought/cold.

Genetic engineering in crops helps make them grow faster and have more yields than non GMO crops. Some have been bred so that they are resistant to different pesticides, enabling the producer to spray for weeds that would normally kill that crop.

Scientist usually test and conclude about new discoveries or finds, such as new species, genetic engineering, etc.

how would you describe genetic engineering to someone who doesn't know about biology

Pros1. Might someday cure disease2. Might someday increase crop yeild3. Might create things that can be of our use4. Might help save money, but also might cost a lot of money.5. Cows might make leaner meat6. Can currently engineer animals that grow faster, plants that grow faster and bigger might be possible in the future.7. Some believe genetic engineering can save our lives.8. Some believe genetic engineering is a safer source of human medicine9. Some believe genetic engineering can save endangered species from going extinct10. Some believe it can make chemicals more eco-friendlyCons1. Genetic engineering can have bad side effects2. Genetic engineering could cause food allergies3. It could kill animals over time.4. It could spread disease over time.5. It could destroy livestock over time.6. Genetic engineering could harm human, plant, and animal life.7. The long-term effects of genetic engineering are not known.8. Genetically engineered crops designed to use less chemical fertilizers actually use more after a period of years.9. The process of genetic engineering has not be proven safe, though there are those who say it has been.

Basically, scientists have combined genes from other species, such as bacteria, and corn genes. I believe the purpose was to make the corn more resistant to insects, but it could have been to make the corn more receptive to the use of Round-up. Scientists have also done similar genetic engineering to other crops.

Currently, genetic engineering has already proven beneficial in the production of numerous drugs such as synthetic human insulin. It also helps to enable safer and more precise biomedical research in a number of fields such as the study of human and animal development, gene regulation, the study of genetic disorders, refining human gene therapy, testing new pharmaceutical processes, and recognizing a range of brain receptor chemicals. As for ecology as a whole, genetic engineering can make it possible to increase the genetic diversity of certain species, which would allow these organisms to evolve more effectively.

They do not make a organ but are part of an organ which is the brain.
