Stages of Genetic Engineering

STAGE 1

The gene that creates the desired characteristic is selected. This gene will be different depending on the organism and the effect you are hoping to achieve.

STAGE 2

This gene is cut from the DNA, using enzymes to do so, and then the gene is isolated.

STAGE 3

The gene is inserted into the DNA of another organism, first removing a section of the organism's DNA so that the gene can be inserted in its place.

STAGE 4

The organism reproduces, whether it is asexually or through breeding, and then there are several of these organisms with the desired characteristic. The process of genetic engineering is complete.
