Genetically Modified Organisms

  1. 1. GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS<br />Advantages and Disadvantages of GMO<br />
  2. 2.  GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMO)<br /><ul><li>This DNA is then transferred into an organism, giving it modified or novel genes. Transgenic organisms, a subset of GMOs, are organisms which have inserted DNA that originated in a different species.</li></ul>is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.<br />These techniques, generally known as recombinant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources, which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes.<br />OR<br />  GENETICALLY ENGINEERED ORGANISM (GEO)<br />
  3. 3.  GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMO)<br /> ADVANTAGES<br /> ADVANTAGES<br /> and<br />DISADVANTAGES<br />
  4. 4.  GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMO)<br /> ADVANTAGES<br />  Disease could be prevented by detecting people/plants/animals that are genetically prone to certain hereditary diseases, and preparing for the inevitable. Also, infectious diseases can be treated by implanting genes that code for antiviral proteins specific to each antigen.<br />
  5. 5.  GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMO)<br /> ADVANTAGES<br />Genes could also be manipulated in trees for example, to absorb more CO2 and reduce the threat of global warming.<br />
  6. 6.  GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMO)<br /> Disadvantages<br />Nature is an extremely complex inter-related chain consisting of many species linked in the food chain. Some scientists believe that introducing genetically modified genes may have an irreversible effect with consequences yet unknown.<br />
  7. 7.  GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMO)<br /> Disadvantages<br />Genetic engineering borderlines on many moral issues, particularly involving religion, which questions whether man has the right to manipulate the laws and course of nature.<br />
