Genetic engineering is the process of using recombinant DNA rDNA technology to alter the genetic makeup of an organism. Traditionally, humans have manipulated genomes indirectly by controlling breeding and selecting offspring with desired traits. Genetic engineering involves the direct manipulation of one or more genes. Most often, a gene from another species is added to an organism's genome to give it a desired phenotype. Genetic engineering is a term that was first introduced into our language in the s to describe the emerging field of recombinant DNA technology and some of the things that were going on.
Cellulose is the primary component of the plant cell wall and an important source of energy for the ruminant and microbial protein synthesis in the rumen. Cell wall content is digested by anaerobic fermentatio Citation: Journal of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology 19 Content type: Research.
