Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

Introduction:

While humans have been causing genetic modifications in organisms for thousands of years, new biotechnology tools are making this process faster, easier, and more direct. In this module you will learn how humans are using modern genetic engineering technology to make organisms express specific traits for a desired purpose, and will explore the potential positive and negative implications of these actions.

By the end of this module, you should be able to:

– Define what it means to be a genetically modified organism

– Describe modern genetic engineering practices

– Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using modern genetic engineering practices to solve current challenges
