From the Web site of, genetic engineering is "a laboratory technique used by scientists to change the DNA of living organisms." Put another way, genetic engineering is "the alteration of genetic code using artificial means" (from Genetic engineering is also called bio-engineering, gene-splicing, gene manipulation, etc. and the organisms that result from the practice are called genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

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.

My guess is genetic engineering. Here is the definition of genetic engineering: "The deliberate modification of the characteristics of an organism by manipulating its genetic material." (found on google when i searched "genetic engineering definition," it did not say a link for the source)

Genetic engineering cannot be called yet an exact science, malformation and mutations inadequate to sustain normal life can be created.

how is genetic engineering carried out

Yes, genetic modification is a form of genetic engineering.

Short Answer is: our understanding of genetic engineering.

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

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.

* 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.

"Genetic engineering is a very controversial issue."

Cloning refers to the reproduction of an exact replica of a living organism using the DNA of that organism. Genetic engineering (genetic modification) refers to the human manipulation of genetic material in a manner that doesn't occur in nature. The first such organisms were bacteria then mice. eg. genetically modified food

with genetic engineering, most of the diseases and illness can be prevented.there are also infectious diseases that can be treated by genetic has ability to produce genetic diversity to produce variant alleles.

an example of genetic engineering are like: Cloning IVF

Genetic engineering is the use of science to recombine DNA in many different procedures to develop organisms. Genetic engineering is mostly used in agriculture and medicine.

Genetic Engineering is the study and application of genetics for a better life/future. Genetic engineering can be used to produce medicines & to improve food crops. Researchers are also using genetic engineering to try to cure human genetic disorders.

Since genetic engineering involves the manipulation of genes, genetics is the utmost importance in genetic engineering or any form of genetic technology. The knowledge of the genetics must be present for experiments to work.
