if not done right babys can be born with defects. or new desises can be produced
Is it possible to genetically engineer a dinosaur If yes what would be its adverse effects on the human race?
currently, no. DNA breaks down after 40,000 to 50,000 years. the most recent dinosar died 65,000,000 years ago. it may be possible to retro-engineer a dinosaur using bird DNA …but no pure-blooded dinosaur can be made yet. the only adverse affects would come if the dinosaur is meat eatting and ecaped into civilization. Their is the posssiblity that a virus will arise from the retro-dino and was pasted to humans.
As with all genetic engineering, the major concern is the unpredictability of long-term consequences. The technologies available for genetic engineering are not ye…t developed enough to modify DNA of a living organism specifically and reliably. Usually, some genetic changes are introduced unintentionally and these can cause severe problems for the organism. Let us assume the technology was perfected and human DNA could be reliably altered for living human beings. There are still two major problems: First, genetically engineered changes are always set for the entire lifetime of an organism. The changes are introduced just after an egg is fertilised, so that all cells resulting from the egg's cell division will also carry the modifications. Once the egg has divided, genetic modification becomes much more difficult or even impossible. This means that any unexpected consequences of a modification cannot be corrected and the organism then has to live with those consequences. The second problem is the concern of what would be done with this technology. The intentions behind its develoment are almost always to improve medicine for treating genetic diseases, but the ability to modify DNA could be abused for unethical purposes once it is available.
We can improve our foods using genetic manipulation. long life tomatoes for example are a product of genetic engineering. We can also identify, and isolate unwanted genes in o…rder to try and eliminate them from a species, or we can isolate genes responsible for positive traits and try to promote them in a species.
Well, it's an ethics question really. There are no real physical disadvantages. (Unless you engineer everyone to be the same, then we can't evolve and become dependant on clon…ing and genetic engineering to be able to breed and stay one step ahead of viruses) There are alot of disadvantages...like people can make clones without heads so they couldn't breathe, people can make them smater, more athletic, and sexier than normal people. Everyone will soon be the same and there will be no job oppertunites because anyone will be just like everyone else. Some scientists even think that the clones will age quicker too. Plus Genetic Engineering is against God's will, it's unnantural, and it crosses the species barrier.
The discovery that signalled towards the birth of genetic engineering was DNA cloning. Stanley Cohen and Herbert Boyer discovered this in 1973. Herbert and Stanley inven…ted genetic Engineering as well. They discovered this in April 1997. However its said that farmers and breeders has been doing it for thousands of years, genetically engineering with humans was discovered in 1997.
1990- studied people with severe combined immunodeficiency. 1993- the first human embryo was cloned.
First of all can you point to any REAL positive effects?
Nowadays, GM food (Genetically Modified) is in practically everything. No it does not harm humans, animals or our ecosystem. it is helping it along by exterminating heretical …diseases found in plants (IE: a bitter fruit) and eliminates weak or the runt plants to stop them from reproducing.
Yes YES. Think about it, we could eliminate genes that code for inheritable diseases and mental diseases. I know and have seen many mentally ill people and people with… genetic diseases and it breaks my heart. The pain they have to go through....it could all be eliminated before birth by fixing the genes.
I speculate homo sapien's extinction... civil unrest... a grand divide, between humans and homo superior or superhumans but these are possiblity, in a very pessimistic sen…se maybe even slightly probable... I'll paraphase Stephen Hawking "It will take sometime for the human race to mature after genetic engineering will be reshaping our world..etc"
The positive and negative effects are nomnom
yes they can but only when you aren't born yet because when you aren't born yet scientists may inject bird DNA into you so that when your born u will have hallow bones and win…gs just like a bird but your wing span will be huge
it is taking over the human works, like, atms have reduced human works,in d same way in future,more n more human works will be taken over by A.I.
genetic engineering is a way of intentionally going a genetic sequence in DNA so that a particular traits is produced. that what a genetics engineering. but did u know that he…rb Boyer first transferred DNA from one species to another.so that whats about genetic engineering. Next, i'm going to talk about is that genetcs engineering.it can haelp spociety is humanbeings living and acting together.
It depends how you take it, it is going through experiments to help human kind, if some one take for doing bad , that doesn't mean that Genetic engineering is bad or something… else.
Short Answer: Manipulation of genes has been used by humans in farming & agriculture for hundreds of years. Longer Explanation: Genetic engineering in the …stictest definition is a fairly new technology. It consists of extracting a gene or genes from a plant or animal and inserting it into another plant or animal, or changing it in some way and inserting it back into the original plant or animal in order to get a desired trait. The most familiar known use of the technology is to develop crops that are resistant to herbicides or plants that produce a substance that kils insects when the plant is eaten by them, though there are lesser-known uses of genetic engineering. Though some might say that the use of genetic engineering includes the method of hybridization, hybridization is a totally different process that has been used throughout time. Another difference is that hybrids cannot be patented in the same way genetically engineered plants can.
