Suppose you are a scientist trying to help people who cannot produce an enzyme needed for proper digestion. How could you use genetic engineering techniques to make transformed bacteria that produce the enzyme?

    well from a project i just did, it seems certain non pathogenic bacteria can be given the gene responsible fro that particular enzyme production, enabling the bacteria to produce the enzyme needed. Bacteria are able to borrow genes from other bacteria species and a s recent research has proven, even humans. They carried this out using the gene responsible for insulin production, by adding this gene to the bacteria genome, it was able to produce insulin, and would soon repalce insulin shots for diabetic patients.
