2. How many steps are involved in the process of genetic engineering?
3. What is an advantage of genetic engineering over traditional plant breeding?
The method of genetic engineering is a fool-proof method where plant breeding is not.
Potentially, traits from any living organism can be transferred into a plant and is also more specific in that a single trait can be added to a plant.
Genetically engineering is less costly than traditional plant breeding.
4. Which is not a step in making a marketable genetically engineered plant?
Horizontal Gene Transfer
5. How many years does it usually take to develop a genetically engineered crop from the initial concept to the market?
