The animation or video will help you see where and when regulatory agencies play a role in the process of genetic engineering for plants and how the genetic engineering timeline compares to a traditional plant breeding timeline. The regulatory process in plants applies to genetic engineering in animals as well, although the timeline for the project may be much longer because the organism is an animal rather than a plant.

Can you think of the steps in the genetic engineering process that would take longer with food production animals (like pigs) than it would in plants?
