Selective Breeding and Genetic Modification
Produced by the Punk Science team from the Science Museum, this video clip asks, "What’s the difference between selective breeding and genetic modification?"
The engaging video looks at how traits can be selected by breeders to produce offspring with desirable features. This is compared with genetic engineering, in which traits can be transferred from one species to another.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
