Genetic engineering, also known as Bioengineering, was the direct manipulation of an organism's genome using sophisticated medical technology to directly alter a lifeforms anatomy and physiology.
Genetic engineering had a myriad of uses, but was most generally used to alter or extensively modify an existing organism for an expanded purpose or function, and was capable of modifying size, strength, speed, behavior, entire anatomical and physiological systems, and even cognitive abilities. Companies of all walks, from agricultural corporations such as the Republic Livestock and Agriculture Administration, to genetic research industries such as GeneSculpt and TheraGene, to entire planetary governments such as the Arkanian Dominion used genetic engineering for a myriad of purposes ranging from the mundane to the military.
Examples of Genetic EngineeringEdit
