FULL TEXT  


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.
