Unformatted text preview: The END is in SIGHT!! 2007 Golden Rice Utilizes genetic machinery in the plant. Genetic exchange is random process involving entire genome. Only between closely related species. When and where genes are expressed not controlled by breeder. Utilizes genetic machinery in the laboratory. Genetic exchange is involves specific, single gene. Source of gene from any living organism. When and where gene is expressed can be controlled precisely. HOW? Classical Breeding Genetic Engineering Utilizes genetic machinery in the plant.
