Biology

For many years, humans have used a variety of techniques that have influenced the genetic makeup of organisms. These techniques have led to the production of new varieties of organisms that possess characteristics that are useful to humans. Identify one technique presently being used to alter the genetic makeup of an organism, and explain how humans can benefit from this change.

Your answer must include at least:

(1) the name of the technique used to alter the genetic makeup
(2) a brief description if what is involved in this technique
(3) one specific example of how this technique has been used
(4) a statement of how humans have benefited from the production of this new variety of organism

    That should help you.

    Generic Engineering has been used in crops. They mess around with the plants genes and stuff so it grows better I think
