Genetic engineering or technology is also known as recombinant DNA technology that is all about the group of techniques used to cut up and join together the genetic material from different biological species. It has introduced many new levels of modification in the field of biology. It is a process that includes the use of recombinant DNA technology to alter the genetic makeup of an organism. However, human beings have indirectly manipulated genomes by controlling breeding and selecting offspring with the desired traits. First introduced in the 1970s, it has now evolved to an enormous field where the whole genome can be cloned and moved equally from cell to cell. It is considered one of the modern branches of biotechnology that is highly used in research, medicine, industrial biotechnology, and agriculture. The rise of these commercially genetically modified crops also results in economic benefits for the farmers residing in different countries.
The book covers genetic technology that is designed to share all the detailed information related to genetic engineering. Starting from a generic description, it shares the historical development along with genetically modified organisms. The overview and importance of DNA are also added in a highly briefed manner. All the chapters include genetic analysis for serving better learning purposes. Also, the assignments are specially added in the chapters to make students learn about codes linked with unknown sequences. The book retains its focus on all the fundamental purposes that are important for gene manipulation and technology.
