Did you know that these plants history are important in our nutrition today?
Well in these lab we genetically modify plants.
We use selective breeding and biotechnology to ensure a better plant breed.
These crops are transgenic, which means that a specific DNA strand with desired characteristic was combined to its cells and made the crops better.
Some plants are also inbreeded or crossed with hybridization. Inbreeded are plants with same characteristics crossed together. Hybrids are plants crossed to combine their best characteristics
Biotechnology is used to make this possible. Combinating DNA, using PCR which reproduces more DNA with special characteristics, and using plasmids to implant genes to humans.
Genetic engineering is another method to improve plants and animals for better production of nutrients and life span. These plants and animals are implanted with recombinant DNA to produce benefits to it.
Also this technological advancements have made scientists able to recognise criminals with fingerprinting or doing parental testing.
