Transforming a organism

Post by dogluver » Thu Jan 11, 2007 6:26 am

Scientists often want to know if a genetically organism can pass its new traits onto a offspring and future generations. To get this information, which would be a better canadidate for your investigation, an organism in which each new generation developes and reproduces quickly, or one which does this more slowly.

Please help me on this question, I don't get it.

Reproduction is the key to passing traits...should be pretty obvious.
