Hey there, how r ya doing? Hope everyone is fine. Well, I really need ur help in explaining the role of genetic engineering in treating a blood cancer-patient or even its trial in dealing with this kind of cancer.

Try doing some research on enviornmental versus genetic factors in leukemia. As with many genetic diseases, both of these factors play a role.
