Public controversy surrounding cloning and genetic modification increases with each new development in the field. Illustrating concepts at the heart of the debate, this DVD program shows how biotechnology now drives large-scale agriculture through genetic engineering and sophisticated selective breeding. Outlining ways in which humans have indirectly modified plants and animals since the dawn of agriculture, the program details our ability to construct and insert genes for desirable characteristics into plants and increase livestock productivity with beneficial traits - screening out animals with disease or lower food yields. Engaging animation sequences reinforce important biotech concepts. DVD. 28 minutes. Available in the U.S. only. Copyright 2006.
