Question/responseI need to provide a reponse to the folloqwing question.Could you please assist?Provide research on gene splicing, a DNA technology that bioengineers can use to create organisms with traits never before seen in nature (herbicide-resistant crops, mice with fluorescent organs, yeast cells that smell like wintergreen, etc). What are the benefits and dangers of these technologies?Title : Genetically Modified YeastIntroductionThe yeast Saccharomyces spp. is known to be the best microorganism for fermenting sugars to ethanol. Saccharomyces spp. has been used to ferment glucose-based agricultural biomass to ethanol. Agricultural biomass that includes agricultural residues, paper wastes, and wood chips, is an inexpensive, renewable available source of sugars for fermentation to ethanol (liquid fuel) for transportation. (1) Unfortunately, the yeast Saccharomyces spp.
