Genetically-engineered baby. Conceptual computer illustration of a baby that has been genetically- engineered to have blue eyes, seen below an eye. It is feared that parents wanting such designer babies may alter the path of human evolution. Humans may be genetically-engineered by placing the gene (or genes), a section of the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) genetic material, that codes for the desired characteristic into human DNA. Similarly, undesired genes may be removed.
