The 20th century witnessed significant developments in biotechnology and genetic science. The changing of organism genomes via gene transfer caused opened up limitless research areas. Today the effect of biotechnology can be seen in almost everything, from consumed foods, to our clothes, from paper to energy, from space technology to the health sector. Genetically modified foods, microorganisms, animals, plants, cloned organisms, present different products to society, but these technologies create suspicions among people. The increase in their application, the spread of modified organisms, and the continuity of human cloning studies have created fears of these studies. If we don’t forget that biotechnology is a technological tool to obtain better conditions in all aspects of life, then the benefits of these studies will be limitless as well.
