Genetic engineering has applications in medicine, research, industry and agriculture and can be used on a wide range of plants, animals and microorganisms.Genetic engineering has produced a variety of drugs and hormones for medical use. For example, one of its earliest uses in pharmaceuticals was gene splicing to manufacture large amounts of insulin, made using cells of E. coli bacteria. Interferon, which is used to eliminate certain viruses and kill cancer cells, also is a product of genetic engineering, as are tissue plasminogen activator and urokinase, which are used to dissolve blood clots.It could also be used to cure leukemia and hemophilia  Source: Boundless. “Applications of Genetic Engineering.” Boundless Microbiology.

genetic engineering is the process of manipulating the genes and therfor the traits of an organism we already genetically engineer our plants so they are stonger, faster, and produce better (better looking, better tasting, etc) fruit/food. we might possible be able to genetically engineer humand or babies to controll the traits we want  (do you want your baby to be good at this) basically genetic engineering is normally used to change theh current state of something so that it is more suited for the job that you intend for it
