|3. Ecological process engineering: The potential of bio-processing|
1. Technically, genetic engineering involves cutting and splicing molecules of the substance called deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The artificially modified forms are known as recombinant DNA or rDNA.
2. Indeed, as of 1994, well over 90 per cent of all worldwide venture-capital funding for biotechnology was targeted at this field of application.
3. See, for instance, the United Nations University's zero emissions research initiative (ZERI) (Paul) 1995).
