Biology offers a variety of valid topics for research. Topics may include, but are not limited to: Genetically Modified crops, genetic technology, climate change, pollution, and biodiversity, farming, cloning and reproductive technology. Each of the previously mentioned topics has a substantial impact on daily living. Focusing on Genetic Engineering allows the opportunity to further observe most of the matters mentioned. Research reveals the multiple subtopics of Genetic Engineering and their critical effect on humanity.

[...] Gramulocyte colony-stimulating factor, also known as G-CSF, provides an example of this. G-CSF is a hormone used to increase the production of protein. The protein hormone causes an increases in the production of the phagocytic white blood cells that are instrumental in the defense against infections of bacterial nature, also known as granulocytes. (Anderson) This provides a basic concept of protein production. The primary aim is to cause the maximum production of the protein. Therapeutic Cloning assists in treating health conditions or diseases. Therapeutic cloning involves a simple process. [...]

[...] However, several countries around the world have forbid the practice. There are also international agreements that prohibit the reproductive cloning of humans. (Anderson) Safety considerations are one reason for the opposition of human reproductive cloning. The success rate of animal cloning is relatively low. Scientists think the practice can never actually be safely conducted. In summary, genetic engineering has a monumental effect on human life. The practice has been identified as controversial, but the validity of the results remain. Many people consume foods produced from genetic engineering daily. [...]
