Engineering

The process of creating new technology

Identify and Research a need.

Develop possible solutions

Make a prototype (a test model)

Test and evaluate the prototype (Cost-Benefit analysis)

Modify and retest.

Bioengineering

Applying the engineering design process to living things.

Can you think of a problem a living thing might have that needs to be solved. Remember people, plants and animals are all living things. Write down 3 problems

adaptive and assistive bioengineering
Adaptive and Assistive Bioengineering

Assistive Bioengineering- technology that helps organisms without changing them.

bioengineered corn
Bioengineered Corn

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.
