0. Executive Summary
DNA engineering, whether it be related to food and humans, has been a controversial topic in 21st century. Since the first identification of genes in the mid-1800s, scientists have come very far. DNA, known as deoxyribonucleic acid, is a molecule that carries the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of almost all known forms of life. Scientists have been able to map the DNA sequences of people as an indication of the individual.  
Sequencing technology has been proven useful in many aspects. In this article, six subtopics will be discussed including genetically modified organisms (GMOs), invasion of privacy, incurable diseases, eugenics and denial of choice, cloning, and overpopulation. Gene modifications in the food industry led to better yields and pest resistance, but also raised the issues of safety and morality. Furthermore, gene editing could also be applied to humans. Individuals could spend a reasonable amount of money to sequence their genome to identify a potential disease. Research centers also collect DNA samples to do medical researches about inherent disease. However, with the outside access towards an individual's biological information, the issue of the protection of privacy is raised. With modifying gen...
