Genetic Engineering is the process of adding new DNA to an organism manually. DNA is a molecule which is found in the nucleus of every cell and is made up of segments A, T, G and C. Small segments of DNA are called genes. An organism may have thousands of genes.
Genetic Engineering works by physically removing a gene from one organism and inserting it into another. The genetic engineering is also used in several fields such as industrial biotechnology, agriculture, research and medicine. This type of engineering concentrates on molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, medical genetics and evolutionary biology.
Career Scope in Genetic Engineering:
To become genetic engineer, one should have bachelor degree, preferably in the branch of physical science that is, biology or chemistry or biological science. This branch of engineering.
