  • Genetic engineering when used on microorganisms help in the creation of new pharmaceuticals which cannot be made in any other way.
  • Genetic engineering helps in the process of bioremediation which is the process of cleaning up waste and pollution with the help of living organisms.
  • Genetic engineering has helped lower the overall usage of herbicide and pesticide.
  • Genetic engineering has helped with the production of vaccines and other drugs in plants.
  • Genetic engineering has helped produce quicker and more predictable way of generating new cultivars. Further, the cultivar properties are better known today than it was ever known before.
  • Today, genetic engineering can produce sustainable agriculture.
  • Genetic engineering has produced very useful genetically modified breeds which can tolerate factory farming without any suffering.
  • In humans, genetic engineering is used to treat genetic disorders and cancer. It also helps in supplying new body parts.
  • Although, this has not been done today, genetic engineering has the potential of creating new types of human beings with many advantageous traits.

Since genetic engineering involves the manipulation of genes, genetics is the utmost importance in genetic engineering or any form of genetic technology.


Cloning and genetic engineering are similar. Genetic engineering is when we choose a specific gene that we are interested in and cloning is when exact genetic copies are produced. We control genes passed on to offspring using cloning and genetic engineering.


AnswerThe three types of genetic engineering are:Applied genetic engineering which includes cloning and transgenesis.Chemical genetic engineering which includes genes mapping, gene interaction, and genes codingAnalytical genetic engineering which includes computer mapping.


Genetic engineering is done to produce genes


what made genetic engineering possible


the risks and benefits of genetic engineering.


First of all can you point to any REAL positive effects?


* Natural Selection, nature's own genetic engineering. * Selective Breeding, our success in altering the course of natural selection. * Genetic Manipulation, the current state of the art in genetic engineering. * True Genetic Engineering, the next step. * Playing God! If you're offended by genetic engineering, read what's theoretically possible. Beyond the best genetic engineering we can currently devise is much, much more: the re-engineering of life itself. * Other Bio-technology, Human Cloning and Genetic Engineering


Yes, genetic engineering is important to medicine.
