Can anything be added in DNA to create the things one wants in the new individual?

Not even modify DNA, with the technologies now...you can even create DNA...But, with these technologies, which are called "efficient", we only can create about 200 nucleotides per day while our bodies can do the same job just less than 1 minute...:lol: :lol: :lol:

so slow eh??? :wink:
