Storyboard Text

  • The D.N.A. is what makes up the chromosomes inside the cell nucleus or center. These sticks of D.N.A.  end up in pairs so they look like x's.
  • So the scientists decide to find the D.N.A. in the smelly plant that makes the smell and an empty spot in the D.N.A. of the tomato plant.
  • Key Terms: A cell is a tiny block that all living things are made of. They are so small you can only see them with a microscope.
  • A trait is a visual or physical difference determined by genetics.
  • Then the D.N.A. with the positive trait is moved to the tomato cell.
  • But how do you move something so tiny?
  • There are two common ways it's usually done. One is through an inert virus injected into the cells.
  • See, scientists disable the negative parts of the virus (making it inert) or use non-violent viruses to keep people safe.
  • Aren't viruses dangerous though?
  • That sounds pretty cool. Whats the other one?
  • See the virus is given the D.N.A. and then is made to implant the D.N.A. in the cell.
  • Like a gun that shoots denim?
  • Replacement graphic for gun
  • The other popular option is called a gene gun
  • No, Scientists call it that because they put the genes on gold particles before sort of shooting the particles into the cell.
  • Anyway, this process is repeated over and over in the cells of the plant seeds and then those seeds are sold to farmers.
  • Yup! Speaking of which, I'm hungry.
  • And then they ate salad. I don't know. How does one end one of these?
  • And then those farmers grow the plants, and the plants grow the fruit that we eat!
