o Personal Experience for Opening Sentence: The first time that I was exposed to genetic engineering was when I attended a summer Biomedical Sciences program at the University of Maryland.

With just a small piece of DNA, we made the bacteria resistant to all antibiotics that usually could kill it and that amazed me. The same could potentially happen if scientists alter the genome of embryos and once this procedure has been done, there is no way to reverse what has already happened which could potentially be very dangerous if a mistake was accidentally made.
