Genetic Engineering is, amazing. In many previous videos we’ve explored the basics of how genetic engineering works, and today we’ll be exploring something a little more complicated; engineering yeast to produce beta-carotene, the precursor for vitamin A.

We’ll then use these newly modified yeast to bake and brew with, giving the items we make a vitamin boost!
