One of the most useful applications of genetic engineering has been for increasing food production. Insect and disease resistance are important for crop success. Researchers have genetically modified numerous crops, including soybeans and corn, for these traits. Genetic engineering will be crucial in meeting the world’s food production needs. 41 Seeds of Controversy Changing plants on the cellular level has created a revolution in food production and a wider variety of beautiful garden plants. It has also created a lot of controversy.
Researchers can genetically modify plants to create biomass that can turn into biofuel. Another exciting area for development is in medicine. In the last twenty years, researchers have used genetic engineering to treat some diseases. In addition, doctors use gene therapy to treat medical conditions of babies who are still in the womb. The potential benefits of genetic engineering appear to be endless. How, do you think, should we control it all? A community depends on farmers growing safe and healthy crops.
