Genetic engineering also called genetic modification, it is the modification of an organism's genome using biotechnology. In this new DNA may be inserted in the host genome by isolating and copying the same genetic material of interest using molecular cloning methods to generate a DNA sequence, or by synthesizing the DNA, and then inserting this construct into the host organism. Examples of genetically engineered or transgenic organisms include plants with resistance to some insects, plants that can tolerate herbicides, and crops with modified oil content.
