Genetic Engineering; genes; organisms; created; technology; cells; species

Genetic Engineering is a _________________designed to create new organisms by
combining species. It involves the manipulation of ______________
-

units of DNA


where scientists are able to transfer these genes between totally unrelated
____________. All c
reatures on earth are made up of the same basic units
-

______________, so scientists can combine these basic units in any way.

The major difference between _____________________ and natural reproduction is
that it occurs across species of
__________________. So this means that anything can
be experimented with and potentially _________________.
