Project #86495 - Environmental Science short post

Genetic Engineering- Environmental Boon or Bust?

This U.S. government website(http://web.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/project/index.shtml) contains a cloning fact sheet, and links to other interesting information and news regarding genetic engineering and cloning. 

an initial response should be posted no later than Thursday, 11:55 p.m., ET.  Your response needs to adequately cover the topic which in general should take at least 250 words.  Since this is not a writing assignment but a discussion, you will not need to formally reference your work but need to attribute it to the source you found it, something likely you do in everyday conversation.  For example, "Yesterday I was reading in the Washington Post that . . " or, "I found this interesting video on YouTube."

 


After reviewing your text, the 
website on cloning technology, and at least one other credible reference source, explain your opinion of two or more of the following questions:
  • Is genetic engineering fundamentally different than traditional plant and livestock breeding?  Does that matter?
  • What is your opinion on creating, growing, and consuming genetically modified plants (GMOs)?
  • What is your opinion about using genetic engineering to develop "better" farm animals?
  • Can genetic technology offer a solution to world food shortages (an environmental problem)?  
Optional: Often with a discussion of genetic technology other scientific and medical applications are brought up. If you would like you may also include your opinion about (A) using genetic engineering to cure human diseases (gene mapping and pharmaceutical development) and (B) using genetic engineering to clone human body cells, tissues, organs, limbs (therapeutic cloning). 

There are not right or wrong answers, what is important for our discussion is how you explain your position.
