Transgenics is all about genetic engineering. It refers to a collection of techniques used to isolate genes from one species and transfer them to another. The result is a new life form whose altered genetic material expresses a particular characteristic that originated from the 'donor' species. Often referred to as recombinant DNA technology, the resulting organism is said to be "genetically modified,"(GM) "genetically engineered,"(GE) or "transgenic." GM products include medicines and vaccines, foods and food ingredients, feeds, and fibers.
