Unformatted text preview: BIO 325 Genetics Lectures 28 and 29 Biotechnology One must never lose time in vainly regretting the past or in complaining against the changes that cause us discomfort, for change is the essence of life. Anatole France Biotechnology Biotechnology involves the use of living organisms, or products from living organisms, as a way of benefiting humans. Biotechnology Biotechnology involves the use of living organisms, or products from living organisms, as a way of benefiting humans. It began more than 12,000 years ago with the domestication of animals and plants. It is now often associated with molecular genetics.

Organisms that have received genetic material via recombinant DNA technology are called genetically modified organisms (GMOs); if an organism has received genetic material from another species, it is called a transgenic organism and the gene is called a transgene.
