As a result, the production of proteins needed for particular research was an arduous and costly undertaking. One had to process dozens of kilograms [a unit of weight equal to pounds], nay tons, of biomass to obtain milligrams of protein.
The technique also allows scientists to do things that nature alone is incapable of doing. A report prepared at University of Virginia on the state of currently available genetically engineered, or transgenic, plants states:
In modern times our learning extends even further. It includes postdoctoral studies and on-the-job training that may continue well into our 65s. Like our ancient predecessors, we enshrine the most important bits of our collective knowledge, only in more sophisticated embodiments: scientific publications, books, music, video, websites. Nevertheless, when people die, their wisdom the memories and mental processes that produced that knowledge dies too.
BioSteel® is a high strength, resilient silk product created by inserting the genes from a silk-spinning spider into the genome of a goat’s egg prior to fertilization. 8 When the transgenic female goats mature, they produce milk containing the protein from which spider silk is made. The fiber artificially created from this silk protein has several potentially valuable uses, such as making lightweight, strong, yet supple bulletproof vests. Other industrial and medical applications include stronger automotive and aerospace components, stronger and more biodegradable sutures, and bioshields, which can protect military personnel and first responders from chemical threats such as sarin gas. 9
These lists of advantages and disadvantages rely on a fairly narrow view of lectures and it is possible to increase the interactivity of lectures and (at least partially) overcome some of the disadvantages. But, in the end, the prevalence of lectures probably has less to do with learning and more to do with the efficiency (time, cost) of lectures, the familiarity of the format to teachers (probably a function of teachers' learning styles) and time-efficiency of preparing them that sees them so broadly applied.

Many human genetic engineering pros and cons are there that have stayed the same since its introduction to humanity. When the humans started harnessing the atomic powers, then just few years later they also start recognizing the effects of human genetic engineering on mankind. Many scientists have a belief that gene therapy can be a mainstream for saving lives of many people. A lot of human genetic engineering pros and cons have been involved since the evolution of genetic engineering. Mentioned below are some important advantages or pros of genetic engineering :
Part of the reason for that yearning may lie in the fact that people already live so long and with such self-awareness. Our species is distinctive in its ability to remember and to predict future events based upon past experience. Before the invention of writing, and even afterward, reliable predictions required the presence of memories in a living person. People well past their reproductive years could add value to their tribe by remembering early warning signs of rare phenomena, such as drought, locusts, and disease.
