Introducing gene technologies

Genetic engineering and genetic modification are increasingly in the news and of concern to scientists and non-scientists alike. Organisms with useful genetic makeup can be selected and multiplied using cloning techniques – some of which have been used for hundreds of years.

  • Cloning a living organism
    Clone a plant by taking cuttings. Observe features of cuttings after a few weeks, to establish which features depend on genetics and which are influenced by environment.
