The knowledge base supporting genetic engineering technology for animals is extensive. Much of the biochemical and molecular genetic understanding of mammalian systems has been achieved through research on human cell culture lines and the laboratory mouse.

Discoveries made using these laboratory systems are generally applicable to food animals. Genetic engineering techniques have also been used in the direct genetic alteration of livestock and laboratory animals (see pharming).

In scientists at the Scripps Research Institute created genetically engineered Escherichia coli bacteria that included a pair of synthetic nucleotides, or DNA bases, in its genetic code.

Some applications of genetic engineering in agriculture and medicine are diagnostic tools, gene therapy, DNA fingerprinting, using genetic engineering to remove DNA.

D.J. Harris, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, The term Genetic engineering genetic engineering ’ stands for human alteration of the genetic code of an organism, so that its biosynthetic properties are changed. The major applications are for the industrial production of desired peptides or proteins, or to alter the biological capabilites of the organism.

[Lowell D Owens; BARC Symposium VII Committee.; Beltsville Agricultural Research Center.;]. The book, while having only five chapters, covers a wide range of topics in genetic engineering of microorganisms, plants and animals. Specifically it covers both the natural and social sciences. In the natural sciences topics ranging from the genetic engineering of microorganisms to produce antibiotics, the gene targeting and transformation in plants, the generation of marker-free.

Applications for genetic engineering are increasing as engineers and scientists work together to identify the locations and functions of specific genes in the DNA sequence of various organisms. Once each gene is classified, engineers develop ways to alter them to create organisms that provide benefits such as cows that produce larger volumes of.
