    Report question
    Q.

    Why did scientists edit the genes of bacteria to produce insulin?

    answer choices

    Because the bacteria were diabetic

    Because bacteria have simple DNA that is easier to manipulate, making it easy to produce insulin in a lab

    Because bacteria's complex DNA was perfect for insulin production

    Because insulin has no use outside of a lab setting
