Genetic Engineering and Screening

Definitions:

Genetic Screening:  The scientific procedure of examining genetic makeup to determine if an individual possesses genetic traits that indicate a tendency toward acquiring or carrying certain diseases or conditions. In2001, scientists first published the complete human genome map (a human’s genetic blueprint), greatly advancing the capability and use of genetic screening, manipulation, and replication.

Genetic Engineering:  The human manipulation of the genetic material of a cell. Genetic engineering involves isolating individual DNA fragments, coupling them with other genetic materials, and causing the genes to replicate themselves.
