When one thinks of “genetic engineering‚” the first thought is probably a perfect child‚ or paradoxically some inconceivable creature‚ forged under the microscope in a scientific laboratory. Though both of these are genetic engineering‚ many people do not consider other things‚ such as genetic engineering of agriculture and medicine‚ both of which are extremely useful. Through the genetic altering of plants and crops‚ scientists
