Welcome To BioEngineering & BioEthics
In the modern world that we live in, scientists continously create new breakthroughs and bring medical science to new levels each day. Today, it is possible to alter the genes of living things to suit mankind's needs and wants. Similarly, mankind has successfully developed the ability to create replicates of a living organism, a process more commonly known as cloning.
Through our site, we look forward to helping more people grasp the general concepts of cloning and bioengineering, as well as the advantages and concerns that are often associated with these concepts.
Additionally, we also hope to provide visitors to our site with some knowledge of the ethical issues behind cloning and bioengineering, Hence, visitors will be able to develop an understanding of why cloning and bioengineering are highly controversial topics.
