Manipulation of whole organisms ○ Traits of plants and animals ○ Selective breeding ● Does not Fuse Cells ○ Individual cells are not changed ● Works with Nature ○ Ex: Fermentation ● Trial and Error ○ Especially at the beginning ○ Identify specific products and extract them.
Manipulation of genetic material ○ Controlling DNA ● Fusion of Cells ○ Putting together two cells to make one cell ● Beyond breeding barriers ○ Unnatural and outside of Nature ● Targeted and controlled ○ Identify specific genes ○ Use controlled experiments to change genes or move into another cell.
