    2010), and with that the project has been brought back into the public conscious. The Human Genome Project (HGP) was a 13 year long $3 billion dollar venture by the US Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health to “ferret out the genetic roots of common diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s and then generate treatments” (Wade 2010). Originally expectations were high that it would be the “be all end all” to bio medical research, that it would unlock the complete wonders of the human

    Unregulated Genetic Technology Threatens to Dehumanize Society When James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the structure of DNA in 1959, they could not have known that their discovery would one day lead to the possibility of a human factory that is equipped with the capabilities to mass produce perfectly designed, immortal human beings on a laboratory assembly line. Of course, this human factory is not yet possible; genetic technology is still in its infancy, and scientists are forced to spend

    to withstand natural disasters, and to deliver preventative vaccination. Much of this technology exists due to the rapid development of genetic modification, and today’s genetically modified crops are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Says Robert T. Fraley, chief technology officer for biotech giant Monsanto, “It’s like computers in the 1960s. We are just at the beginning of the explosion of technology we are going to see." Biotechnology’s discontents are numerous and furious, declaring the

    DNA technology or genetic engineering is the use of in vitro molecular techniques to isolate analyze and manipulate fragments of DNA or genes. In the early 1970s, researchers at Stanford University were able to construct chimeric molecules called recombinant DNA molecules. Shortly thereafter, it became possible to introduce such molecules into living cells where they are replicated to make many identical copies. This achievement ushered in the era of gene cloning.  Recombinant DNA technology and
