Genetic Engineering

For this assignment, you must write a 4-6 page position paper to illustrate your views on biotechnology and/or cloning. Be sure to provide me with a reference page (this will not count towards your 4-6 page requirement). Let me give you some examples of what could be done:

  • It could be illustrated how these technologies may help in the decline of species or help to solve food production problems.
  • You can take a positive perspective or a negative perspective on this technology (be sure to illustrate why).
  • One could illustrate why certain technologies should be investigated and possibly adopted, while others would be off limits.
  • It could be illustrated why these technologies offer hope for human survival.
  • You could illustrate how these technologies can be used to bring back former species that have been lost (negative and positive consequences)
  • Or you could illustrate how this technology could be used to limit human diseases and suffering.

The above list is only a few suggestions, but many more possibilities exist.
