Assistive Bioengineering- technology that helps organisms without changing them.
Adaptive Bioengineering- technology that helps organisms by changing them.
Scientists have inserted into corn a gene from the bacterium Bacillus thurigiensis, usually referred to as BT. The gene makes a protein lethal to certain caterpillars that destroy corn plants. This form of insect control has two advantages: It reduces the need for chemical pesticides, and the BT protein, which is present in the plant in very low concentrations, has no effect on humans.
Should we genetically alter salmon?
