Mutants, Clones, and Killer Corn
Unlocking the Secrets of BiotechnologyBook - 2005
Research in biotechnology, creating new man-made plants and animals, has made great leaps in the world of genetic engineering. It takes more than 10 years and half a billion dollars to create a new product. Yet that hasn't stopped scientists from creating glowing monkeys, goats with spider silk in their milk, and more. Follow the field of biotechnology from its origins in selective livestock breeding to growing human organs and future implications, such as recreating the dinosaurs.
