Genetec Engineering

  1. 1.
  2. 2. Start of Genetic Engineering<br />Genetic engineering: Scientific alteration of DNA.<br />Started after the discovery of DNA by James Watson and Francis Crick.<br />DNA determines physical and mental characteristics.<br />
  3. 3. Types of Genetic Engineering<br />Germline Gene Therapy<br />Alteration of genome takes place in reproductive cell.<br />Alterations can be inherited if inserted into chromosomes.<br />Mostly done in animals.<br />
  4. 4. Types of Genetic Engineering<br />Somatic Cell Gene Therapy<br />Alteration of genome in other than sex cell.<br />Bad genes can be swapped for good ones.<br />Not inheritable.<br />Limited success rate.<br />
  5. 5. The down side<br />
  6. 6. Creating bigger salmon..<br />May feed more people..<br />But is it right?<br />
  7. 7. Chicken with no feathers.<br />Would you eat this?<br />You wouldn’t know if you <br />were.<br />Is this right?<br />
  8. 8. Company<br />control<br />
  9. 9. But does it have<br /> benefits?<br />
  10. 10. Feeding A Growing World<br />worldhistoryforusall.sdsu.edu<br />
  11. 11. More People = More Food<br />Crops are engineered to <br />resist disease.<br />No disease means more <br />crops last.<br />More crops means more <br />food for the growing <br />population.<br />
  12. 12. Advancements<br />bacteria producing insulin<br />mice producing human heart attack drugs in their milk<br />goats who carry cancer fighting protein in their milk<br />sheep with a blood clotting aide in their milk<br />a hen who produces a cancer fighting agent in her eggs<br />a bull was cloned that was resistant to brucellosis, tuberculosis, and salmonellosis <br />
  13. 13. What will happen?<br />Who knows?<br />
