Lesson: Genetic Engineering Biology
In this lesson, we will learn how to describe the process of genetic engineering, and discuss its positive and negative implications.
Which of the following best defines genetic engineering?
The soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis produces a protein called Bt toxin. Bt toxin is lethal to insects that consume it.
How can the Bt toxin be used in genetic engineering to benefit crop farming?
Genetic engineering involves manipulating the genome of an organism. What is a genome?
