The directed transfer of genes and DNA through genetic engineering from one organism to another has been accomplished in viruses, bacteria, fungi, plants, animals and insects.

Genetic engineering has made significant contributions in the medical and public health fields, including through production of a vast array of drugs including the Hepatitis-B and Garadsil vaccines, a cancer killing virus, and most recently through life saving gene therapy. Now, there is the potential for transgenic insects to also be used in protecting public health through reduction in disease transmission.
