Advances in Genetics and Biotechnology


      Genetic engineering refers to the direct manipulation of DNA to alter an organism’s characteristics (phenotype) in a particular way. It  is the artificial modification of an organism’s genetic composition. Genetic engineering typically involves transferring genes from one organism into another organism of a different species to give the latter specific traits of the former.

      Biotechnology is any technological application that makes use of biological systems, living organisms and its components to create products and other technological systems with the aim of advancing the human condition. This advancement may come in the form of increased food production, medicinal breakthroughs or health improvement as result of new knowledge and products. The term is an obvious combination of the word bio (life) and technology.

      The journal includes a wide range of fields in its discipline to create a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal and the editorial office promises a peer review process for the submitted manuscripts for the quality of publishing.
