Answered by Expert

Genetic engineering can produce many medicines like insulin, in large amounts very easily and at low costs.

It can detect several fatal genetic diseases in children and foetus, so as to equip us to deal with them.

Many genetic diseases can be cured only through gene therapy.

Genetic engineering can give us clues to the causes of several fatal diseases.

Agricultural crops can be produced in abundance and at lower costs using GE.

It is also a way of protecting plants from pests and infectious agents.

Poultry and farm animals can also be better enhanced using GE.

These are some of the requirements which can be fulfilled using GE.
