Humans have engaged in genetic manipulation for millennia, producing plant and animal varieties through selective breeding and hybridization that significantly modify genomes of organisms. Why do you think modern genetic engineering, which often entails introducing or modifying only one or a few genes, has met with so much opposition? Should some forms of genetic engineering be of greater concern than others? Explain. In your response provide a specific example from literature to support your stance.

answer

modern genetics or genetic engineering has met with much opposition because of the following reason

(1) the old belief says that one should not interfare with the work of almighty, then people believe that oppose great research like GMO. which is actually a useful invention.

(2) antibiotic resistance modern genetics involve the use of antibiotic marker gene to help them transfer genetic coding from one organism to another. example tetracyclin gene.

(3) Hidden allergents the transgene food can cause allergic reaction in some people. protein from soyabean is documented for this .

(4) Public profite   the terminator technology is not in the favour of farmers and it may cause the extention of the certain crop variety.

(5) harm to wild crop the trznsgenic crop can cause the harm to the wild form of the plant. the cross between the transgenic variety will cause the loss of some traditional property of wild form of the plant,

the GMO and transgenic is good for human if it is produced under well set guideline or it will be harmful because we are changing everything forever, so the scientist sould be logical and responsible towards the approach.
