Genetically Engineering Our Future

Scientists today use biotechnology to insert and remove genes, altering characteristics in various organisms. This process of “genetic engineering” involves manipulating an organism’s genome—the collection of genetic material, including DNA and RNA. Interestingly, these techniques utilize  naturally occurring organisms and phenomena. Many organisms possess DNA editing tools, such as nuclease enzymes, that regulate DNA reproduction. … Continue reading
