Neil's recent comment on Artificial selection vs. genetic engineering is
slightly dated, as his model of artificial selection is based on selection
of phenotypes, while we can now also select on molecular markers.  This
allows us to move in genes from rather different species via a simple cross
and select for flanking markers.  This is essentially what genetic
engineering does --- insert a piece of foreign DNA into an otherwise normal
