Gene Therapy

 


GENE THERAPY 

Similar to GM crops, we can transfer a gene from human DNA or from anywhere to everywhere.

X_Y

Like X could be a virus or animal and Y could be bacteria or virus. Gene Therapy is a technique in which a faulty gene is removed and a new gene is added.

Definition of Gene

Therapy:

■Gene therapy is based on genetic engineering in which the genome of a human being is modified either by removing a faulty gene or by replacing a faulty gene to treat a disease.

■The first experiment of gene therapy was done in 1990 by Dr French Anderson (USA). He has successfully treated SCID or bubble boy syndrome
