Preventing the Zombie Apocalypse- Making Gene Therapy Safe!
Genetic engineering is the artificial manipulation, modification, and recombination of DNA or other nucleic acid molecules to modify an organism or population of organisms. Engineers who engage in this field are highly trained experts who use a variety of molecular tools and technologies to rearrange fragments of DNA. Their overall goal is to add or remove an organism's genetic makeup for the better, or to transfer DNA code from one species into the other.
