  • Genetic Engineering
    • Cut and paste
      • Enzymes
      • Insert useful gene
      • Cut chromosome
      • Used to create GM organisms
      • Human genes can be used to create GM bacteria
    • Human benifits
      • Golden rice = fewer people suffer from Vitamin A dificiency
      • Can be used to create human insulin fast
      • Can be used to increase the yield of crops
    • Controversial topic
      • GM crops may affect weeds and flowers = changing the environment
      • GM crops may not be safe to eat
      • Transplanted genes could get out into the natural environment = bypassing evolution
