Running head: GENETIC ENGINEERING
First Name Last Name
Genetic engineering refers to the intentional modification of the genetic material of an
organism to produce more desirable traits. The primary reason human beings alter the genes is to
produce more appealing traits. Farmers were the first people to make use of the practice through
crossbreeding of their crops (Ho, 1998). However, people advanced this technology and
currently, individuals developed advanced tools that are currently in use in this field.
The next field that the scientists are exploring to apply genetic engineering targets is the
germinal choice. In this occasion, the technology is primarily used for ethical reasons. The
parents will have an opportunity to select the most desirable character and traits to include in
their kids before conception. This process involves skimming through the embryos available in
the mother’s womb to select the most desirable features. Although scientist invented the
technology about a decade ago, this new perception will be more sophisticated.
The researchers plan to venture in the element of germinal alteration where they will be
in a position to alter the egg, sperm to suit the traits required by the parents. This technology is
crucial and will successfully help solve many diseases that are born with an infant. However,
there is a large margin that the society might not fully accept a child born this way. The...
