Genetics & Genetic Engineering

Modern genetics has expanded beyond inheritance to study the function and behavior of genes and gene structure and function, variation, and distribution are studied within the context of the cell, the organism and within the context of the population Genetic engineering is the process of manually adding new DNA to an organism. The goal is to add one or more new traits that are not already found in that organism (or) Genetic engineering alters the genetic make-up of an organism using techniques that remove heritable material or that introduce DNA prepared outside the organism either directly into the host or into a living cell that is then fused or hybridized with the host. Example of genetically modified foods and plants such as genetically modified corn (resistant to the herbicide Glyphosate ) , genetically engineered soy, Yellow Crookneck Squash and Zucchini, Alfalfa, Sugar Beets.
