Ch5 Sec3

Three methods for developing organisms with
desirable traits:

Selective Breeding: the process of selecting
organisms with desired traits to be parents of the
next generation

Inbreeding: involves crossing two individuals that
have similar characteristics

Hybridization, breeders cross two genetically
different individuals

Ch5 Sec3

Cloning is an organism that has exactly the
same genes as the organism from which it was

Ch5 Sec3

Genetic Engineering, genes from one
organism are transferred into the DNA of
another organism

Genetic Engineering in Bacteria

Genetic Engineering in other Organisms

Gene Therapy, will involve inserting copies of
a gene directly into a person’s cells

Concerns about Genetic Engineering

Ch5 Sec3

Learning about Human Genetics

The Human Genome Project

Genome is all the DNA in one cell of an organism

The main goal of the Human Genome Project was to
identify the DNA sequence of every gene in the
