Two applications of transgenic organisms?
A transgenic organism has genes from other species inserted into its genome. Two of its applications are to improve yield in plants and for research purposes in animals.
What is one practical application for each of the following transgenic bacteria transgenic animal transgenic plants QUICK?
Transgenic organisms are used for getting various biological products in biotechnology e.g when human insulin gene is integrated into bacterial chromosome;since the bacteria divides at rapid rate it produces a large number of copies of human insulin gene on a commercial scale .Insulin is then extracted for the treatment of diabetics.
What are scientists more likely to learn from transgenic animals that from transgenic bacteria or transgenic plants?
How humans genes function. Animal biology is much more similar to that of humans than the others. This means that animals and humans (we are animals BTW) share a more recent genetic relative than the with the other two types of organisms. All life is related, that's why studying bacteria and viruses is very interesting. But from a human medicine standpoint animal studies are the most useful. Yhin Ramirez
Transgenic organisms could be used to make a new type of protein. For example, give a bacteria a new gene. The bacteria can then make the protein coded by the new gene. The protein may end being something such as human insulin or some other protein the bacteria don't normally produce. Your welcome Habs 13
Gene therapy is one form of biotechnology which is used in the creation and upkeep of transgenic organisms. Often used in an effort to correct genetic errors such as metabolic errors which cause diseases to be inherited between generations of organisms. Through the use of gene therapy, some of these errors can be corrected and therefore cure or lessen the effects of the genetic defects.
a transgenic organism is an organism that has had its genetic code (DNA) altered by the inclusion of one or more genes from another species of organism A transgenic organism is an organism which has been modified with genetic material from another species. The genetic modification is accomplished by inserting DNA into an embryo with the assistance of a virus, a plasmid, or a gene gun. The embryo is allowed to develop, and the mature…
The overall effect of transgenic organisms, provided that they are introduced to the ecosystem in a large enough number, is too magnanimous and complex to predict accurately. One thing is for sure though. Since the organisms' traits are no longer what they used to be because of the modifications, there could be an alteration or complete reversal of predator-prey relationships, for example. In general, a massive redefinition of the roles of the species will come…
The transgenic animals contain functional genes introduced by Genetic Engineering from some other species. The foreign gene alters the host cell genetically, and is termed transgene and the animals with transgene are called transgenics or genetically modified (GM) animals. Some GM animals developed so far include transgenic mouse, transgenic sheep transgenic goats, transgenic cows, transgenic pigs and transgenic fish.
