Genetically Modified Organism Everyday Usage What is your stance on genetically engineering organisms to contain better genes within agriculture? Over the past decades gene engineering has been a huge topic of discussion between the public. Questions have erupted on whether the benefits from GMOs (genetically modified organism) outway the problems and on whether it is morally right to modify creatures for humans satisfaction. With a little education one will find that gene manipulation should be used in agriculture to ensure that farmers can produce the best crops and livestock to feed the future due to the fact that GMOs create disease-resistant crops, increase the productivity of crops and livestock, and lastly enhance the overall food quality while being environmentally beneficial (Ormandy, Elisabeth H., Julie Dale, and Gilly Griffin). New technology has allowed scientist to cut out disease-resistant genes from other organism’s DNA using restriction enzymes, and placed into a particular crop’s DNA resulting in that crop to present that disease-resistant trait (Davidson, Sarah Nell). By replacing bad genes with disease-resistant genes farmers can control the possibility of their crops and livestock being …show more content…
Protein B is suspected to support the growth of the plant and utilizing the correct amount of energy to get a crop to grow fast and efficiently without water (Deikman, Jill and Lawson, Mark). A great example of these techniques being used to increase production are the new and improved rice plants that have been engineered to be able to thrive in saltwater (Genetically Modified Foods). Overall this will benefit the economy due to the fact that farmers will be able to produce enough products to trade with other countries who cannot produce these crops and livestock at the rate they need to provide for their
