Biotechnology
Question?
How does
Biotechnology
impact our world?
Biotechnology- the use
and application of living
things and biological
processes

EXAMPLES?
Artificial Selection
Process of selecting and breeding
organisms that have certain
desired traits
Artificial selection
A piece of DNA is modified for use in
medicine, agriculture, industry or
research.

Genetic Engineering
Examples- Genetic
engineering

Glowing mice
A human
ear
growing
inside a
mouse!

Bigger, longer-lasting tomatoes


Genetically modified foods-
good or bad?
Good*
Bad*
Increased yield of crops
Harm
Reduced need of
pesticides environment
Reduced greenhouse
emissions as GMOs by reducing
require less tillage or habitat for
plowing, thus less use of
fossil fuels other animals
Ability to manipulate Dangerous side
foods to increase
desirable components effects?
such as nutrients
Increased production of
GMOs increase
food for starving third herbicide use
world countries.
Crush existing
GMOs are here and you
probably eat GMO foods
every day
Cloning
An organism, cell, or piece of genetic
material that is genetically identical
to the one from which it was derived.
