- Selective breeding
selecting a few organisms with desired traits to serve as parents of the next generation.
crossing two individuals that have identical or similar sets of alleles. The new organisms are very similar to those of their parents.
crossing two genetically different individuals. The hybrid organism that results is bred to have the best traits from both parents.
a clone is an organism that is genetically identical to the original organism it was produced from. A clone has exactly the the same genes as the parent organism.
- Genetic Engineering
in this process genes from one organism are transferred into the DNA of another organism.
