Abstract

This article was created in response to an assigned group project for Honors Junior Seminar, led by Dr. Zoia Stoytcheva. The course sought to research and analyze genetically modified organisms considering their biological, environmental and societal impacts. Taking into account many global issues that today’s populations face, such as pollution from large-scale animal product cultivation and increasing hunger and malnutrition, Travis Rose, Shelby Dolim, and Larissa Ault, envisioned a solution that could potentially alleviate these global concerns. We created this article as a work of fiction to explore how we would attempt to carry out our vision to solve world hunger and pollution through genetic engineering. We did not actually conduct this study in a lab but rather mimicked how we would go about it through creative thinking, literature research and suggestions from our instructor, Dr. Stoytcheva. The paper follows the criteria of a true scientific paper and academic journal. Graphs were originally created by Travis Rose; mammalian cell photos were generously provided by Dr. Stoytcheva; and Larissa Ault supplied PCR gel electrophoresis photos from a Biology 275 Lab.
