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.
