Genetically engineering organisms to be more like our ancestors will be a big change for the planet, the Jewish state’s Chief Scientist announced on Sunday.
Israel’s Chief of Staff, Gen. Yaakov Amidror, said that by the year 2050, genetically modified organisms will have reached a level of complexity and sophistication that will “change the face of life on Earth.”
The announcement comes amid a global crisis in biodiversity caused by the introduction of a new gene, recessive, which causes genetic diseases.
The Jewish state, with a population of more than four billion, has long been one of the world’s most progressive countries in terms of its environmental and social policies.
But a recent report by the Israeli NGO BIPRIH found that by 2050, genetic modification will be spreading rapidly across the planet.
It found that in Israel, there will be over 500 new genes that will be introduced to animals and plants, with an expected increase in the number of genetically modified plants and animals.
This means that genetic modification could spread into countries that have been at the forefront of environmental and ecological progress.
According to BIPRI, only two countries in the world are already in the process of genetically modifying animals and their progeny to create new varieties: Israel and Denmark.
The report also warned that genetically modified animals could have a negative impact on biodiversity and ecosystem services.
According the BIPI, there are around 10 billion organisms worldwide, of which the vast majority are microorganisms and bacteria.
Over half of all life on earth is produced by microbes, including plants and plants-like animals, fungi and bacteria.
“As a result, the creation of new organisms can be a major challenge, particularly when they are introduced at a critical time,” the report said.
Israel has been trying to combat the problem of genetic modification, which is causing the spread of genetic diseases such as Down syndrome.
The country’s Minister of Health, Dr. Yaacov Galant, said in February that the country is in the midst of a genetic modification program that aims to reduce the prevalence of the genetic disorders, such as Tay-Sachs disease.
Israel was the first country to introduce the gene in 1956.
But it has not made any progress in its efforts to contain the disease and prevent the spread.
A recent survey by BIPriH found the number one cause of Down syndrome in the country was exposure to COVID-19, and the number two was COVID, also known as coronavirus.
Since the first gene was introduced, more than 300 genes have been modified, according to the report.
The number of organisms that have undergone genetic modification has increased by around 50 percent.
According BIP Rabbhi, the number 1 cause of genetic disease in Israel is COVID.
Israel is one of only three countries in Europe that has not developed an effective vaccine to prevent the disease.
However, there is a good chance that by 2040, the country will be able to introduce a vaccine for COVID and other viral diseases.
According Dr. Galant: Israel is in a position to be able, as a result of genetic engineering, to produce a vaccine that will completely eliminate COVID.
