Genetic Modification

Genetic Modification is where a Gene from one Organism is Transferred to Another.

The Organism with the transferred gene then produces a protien using instructions in that gene. The protein can be made even though the gene came from another organism as all organisms us the same genetic code

Genetic Modifications Involves:

1- Gene with the desirable protein is isolated - position on the source DNA is identified.

2- Useful gene is replicated to create lots of copies

3- Each gene is joined to a vector (carrier for the gene making it
