    Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) to Produce Pharmaceuticals - “pharming” How it Works Genetically modified (GM) pharmaceuticals are produced through inserting genes of a desired substance into an organism such as plants or animals, so they will express this trait to mass produce that substance in secretions or through their body cells. Many “pharmers”, people who make GM pharmaceuticals, use recombinant DNA techniques to achieve this desired result of having an animal or plant mass produce

    In general, viruses are a distinct group comparing to others. Viruses have similar characteristic as a living organism, but it also lack some of the element that a living organism have.

Viruses are very small species, when a virus is not in contact with a cell, it is just a protein that contains a genome. In the other hand, when it is
