Most of bioetechnology is ethical, efficacious, and has nothing to do with embryonic stem cell research or human cloning. Here is one such area of beneficial research: Scientists have genetically modified skin, which can be applied when the burns are dressed, to make skin grafts more resistant to germs. This can bring great benefit to the treatment of serious burns. Animal testing—see, we do need it—will soon begin. Hopefully, it will work and this advance will soon be available to burn victims around the world.
