Title



:

"Applications and Significance of Genetic Engineering"

Specific purpose

:

To inform my audience the three examples of genetically modified
organisms
and their significances.


Central idea


:

My speech is going to cover three main organisms which are genetically
modified. They are transgenic fish, transgenic mammals and transge
nic plants and their
significances in human life and environment as well.



I.

INTRODUCTION


A.

Attention getter
by showing pictures of genetically modified organisms.


B.

How genetically modified organism are created
and their significances to human and to
the
environment

C.

My speech is going to cover three main organisms which are genetically modified. They
are transgenic fish, transgenic mammals and transgenic plants and their significances in
human life and environment as well.




Transition to body of
speech

:
Firstly we are going to look int
o…






II.

BODY


A.
Transgenic fish

such as

GloFish, Salmon Ids, Carps and Tilapias
.


i.
They are created to be used in the aquaculture industry to increase the speed of
development, reducing fishing pressure on wild stoc
k and to maintain the ecosystem of fresh
water.


ii.

Breeding them using genetic engineering technique can make more profit and there
will not be extinction of some species.


iii.
It

is the first genetically modified animal to become publicly and legally available as
pets
.




Transition to Main Point 2

:
Another area of consideration

will be…



B
.
Transgenic mammals such as cattle, dogs, goats and mice.


i.
These animals are created

to produce knockout animals which are used in research to
investigate changes in phenotypes when specific genes are altered
.


ii.

They are created

to discover the function of unknown gene and to produce animals
susceptible to certain compounds
.


iii.
They also play role to be the
model animal in testing of human diseases.


Transition to Main Point 3

: Finally
,
let’s

divert into…



C.
Transgenic plants such as Golden rice and Hawaiian papaya.



i.
A new trait will be introduced into the gene to
enhance resistance to pest
.

ii.

They are created to produce certain nutrient or pharmaceutical agent.


iii. Genetically modified plants promote healthier living.


Transition to conclusion

: So, what have we looked at so far???

III.

CONCLUSION


A.
Present org
anisms are modified and new organisms are created
where
desired traits

are
specifically tailored to fulfill the needs

in order to be beneficial to surroundings.

B.
Genetic engineering i
s actually activating the world right at the moment.
