Question Description

I need help with a Genetics question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

There are pros and cons on the issue of Genetic engineering. Genetic engineering, also called genetic modification, is the direct manipulation of an organism's genome using biotechnology. It is a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells, including the transfer of genes within and across species boundaries to produce improved or novel organisms. An article written by Henry I. Miller entitled, Genetic engineering applied to agriculture has a long row to hoe believes that, in spite of the lack of scientific justification for skepticism about crops modified with molecular techniques of genetic engineering, they have been the most scrutinized agricultural products in human history. The assumption that genetically engineered or genetically modified is a meaningful and dangerous classification has led to excessive and dilatory regulation. The modern molecular techniques are an extension, or refinement, of older, less precise, less predictable methods of genetic modification, but as long as today's activists and regulators remain convinced that so called GMO represents a distinct and dangerous category of research and products, genetic engineering will fall short of its potential(p. 45).

What is your position on the issue of genetically modified food? Are you a pro or a con? Give at least three reasons why. Develop at least 500 words on this topic. Include an introduction with background information, and your position on the issue, three body paragraphs, and a concluding paragraph. Be sure to use intext citations from the article MLA style.

In the heading of your paper include your name, date, course, and title of assignment to the left of your margin. Type your assignment in a Word document. Indent each paragraph, double space,12-inch font, times new roman style

Genetic Engineering
Genetic modification focuses on changing the genetic makeup of a given organism and in
crops is usually applied when all available means of breeding to attain a particular trait have
exhausted. Genetic engineering is simply aimed at transferring certain or few genes from one
organism/crop to another; they can either be closely related or distantly related (Miller, 45). The
process has been in existence for a very long time and has been made easier and faster by modern
biotechnology. The main goal of undertaking genetic engineering in crops...
