Often misunderstood as a bad thing because of bad coverage in the press, it is in fact very useful. To engineer something you need to map an organism's DNA and then discover which genes have which effect. Then map another organism's DNA and implant those genes where you want the desired effect. It can be performed while a creature or plant is in it's embrionic stage, if done after there would be far too many DNA strands to alter. It could be used to create plants that would grow all year round in any county such as deserts without rain or even in antarctica and if there is water there, thoretically Mars.

Highly advanced scientific process which involves recombining the DNA of certain organisms to reproduce new hybrid organisms for the benefit of man kind.

Although such technology has many promising applications, many of which are already in use today: Genetically modified crops. There are also many downsides: What is the value of life if it can simply be replaced?

Forsaken by religious fanatics, staunch conservatives, tree huggers as well as many well informed intelligent people. A very controversial topic.

May lead to cloning of humans and ultimately the defacing of personal identity and nature as we know it. Human ethics will come into play and are already being tested over such topics.
