The techniques involved in growing genetically modified organisms (GMOs), promoted by Monsanto and other transgenics producers, has led to the abusive use of glyphosate, a defoliating herbicide Monsanto manufactures under the brand name Roundup.
Better regulation of seed markets and stronger incentives to encourage private investment in research and development could also speed dissemination of improved cultivars, hybrids, transgenics, and other products.

With transgenics, you take a gene from another, unrelated organism and introduce it in one way or the other into an organism, like a crop plant.
Topics covered include the Human Genome Project, the mechanics of cloning, transgenics, gene therapy, saviour siblings, GM crops and farming and medical uses.

We've also made strides in improving the process of genetic engineering of these animals so that the development of additional transgenics is facilitated.
She examines attitudes and policies, both for and against, regarding research in the areas of chimerism (combining cells from two individuals of different species), hybridization (combining human and nonhuman eggs and sperm), interspecies nuclear transfer (transferring a human cell nucleus to an enucleated animal egg in order to study developmental biology), cross-species embryo transfer, and transgenics (splicing human DNA to nonhuman embryos, which is common, or splicing nonhuman DNA to human embryos, which is not on the horizon).
