tinkering with animal cells

Post by ...:)mm » Tue Dec 18, 2007 1:29 am

hi,
i have homework which i have some trouble with. the topic is tinkering with cells and i must do research on 2 questions and research them. but i have been searching for about 2 hours and i cannot find anything. here are the two questions:
1.) What is the result if sperm from one species is used to fertilize an egg from another species?
2.) How can genetic information be transferred from one organism to another?

I have some answers in my text book but i cannot use any information from the textbook. I googled it and i did not find any useful information.
and the topic is about animal cells and not human.
please post any links which would be helpful.
thanks in advance :D

1. Lookup mules, ligers and tigons. Then look up reproductive barriers.

2. Lookup horizontal gene transfer
