Mother Lode Chapter
Genetic engineering (also called transgenic or genetically-modified) refers to a process that takes genetic material from an organism and artificially inserts it into an entirely separate organism. This could never occur in nature.
For example, genes from fish have been inserted into strawberries. Genes from bacteria have been inserted into corn, soy beans, and cotton.
