Genetic Engineering

  • Alain Rambach

Abstract

I have the great pleasure to speak to you today about genetic engineering. If I were a scientist working in mechanics, people would expect me to find out the rules of mechanics; and if I were a mechanical engineer, people would expect me to know how to use those rules to design or repair mechanical devices. As a geneticist, I am asked to find out the mystery of heredity, the message that is coded in the genes, and the rules that govern the expression of the chromosomes. And as a genetic engineer, I am asked to use those rules to design or repair chromosomes or genes.
