Biotechnology allows us to use living organisms or their processes for human needs or purposes. Currently, this topic includes such general examples as cloning, stem cells (adult, umbilical cord, and embryonic), DNA fingerprinting, biological warfare, bioremediation, genetically modified organisms, vaccines, and transgenic plants and animals to name a few.

Research how a SPECIFIC biotechnology application within the above GENERAL examples (or ones not listed above) is used today and answer the following questions:

What specific biotechnology application did you choose?
Briefly describe this biotechnology application.
What benefits are derived from this application?
Are there any concerns or negative impacts associated with this use of biotechnology? Why or why not

    I don't see how we can help you since you appear to have not even chosen an application, much less started any research on it.
