The NSABB cited the gene-splicing
precedent in its avian flu recommendation, saying, "We believe that this is another Asilomar-type moment for public health and infectious-disease research that urgently needs our attention.
Indeed, many more such varieties have been developed using a "conventional" method called mutation-breeding than with gene-splicing
By using gene-splicing
techniques to introduce the two genes that express these enzymes, the pathway is restored and the rice grains accumulate therapeutic amounts of beta-carotene.
It was also hoped, by supporters of gene-splicing
technology composing the Miami Group (a coalition of six major agricultural exporting countries), that a multilateral agreement would promote regulatory uniformity and predictability, so that the development of gene-spliced organisms could proceed.
The Home Gene-Splicing
Kit lets you take body parts (such as a nose, a mouth, eyes and a head of other humans and animals) to create your own mutant.
Musical masalah: The world has finally caught up with the musical gene-splicing

Michels claims that Monterey - which will see IBM, SCO and Sequent gene-splicing
their Unix offerings to offer one 64-bit and one 32-bit OS optimized for the Intel IA-64 architecture, will give the firms a 50% share of the Unix market.
Tiny San Francisco-based Genentech had the medical world bubbling over in '77 - one year after its founding - when its scientists for the first time combined gene-splicing
technology with artificial gene synthesis, in effect creating little bacteria "factories" that could churn out exact copies of the desired altered hormone.
The dastardly doc is gene-splicing

The therapeutic route now seems the more promising and is the focus of lively competition among several gene-splicing
companies bearing such science-fictionesque names as Genentech, Chiron, Biocene, and MicroGenesys (pronounced "micro-genesis").
First report of gene-splicing

techniques of biotechnology.
