Abstract:
The production of Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is one revolutionary biotechnology tool. GMO has integrated a gene or DNA sequence which has been transferred by human intervention, into the genome of a cell. GMOs are living beings that have had their genetic code changed in some way and are able to pass the modification on to its offspring. GMOs have wide applications and play important roles in biomedical research, providing better nutrition, enhancing human health, livestock production, research and much more. Gene transfer is a comparatively rapid way of altering the genome of domestic livestock. Animals are engineered with special attention on their fast growth, better health and disease resistance. Researchers are able to review the mechanism of the human disease and their possible cures. Purpose of conservation of endangered can be also fulfilled with the technique. Development of GMOs will provide a scope in direct genetic manipulation of livestock. Such effective means of increasing food production are needed with the increasing population and changing climate conditions. Controversies are also associated with the production of GMOs however, if GMOs can be shown to be both healthful and safe, consumer resistance to these products will most likely diminish. The use of these tools will have a great positive impact benefitting mankind in a timely and more cost-effective manner.
