    The following is an examples of genetic engineering.

    D. Changing DNA inside grape seeds so they produce their own pesticide to prevent attack by insects

    Explanation:

    Genetic engineering is the direct manipulation of DNA to change or alter an organism's characteristics (phenotype) in a specific way. It sometimes called genetic modification, is the process of changing or altering the DNA in an organism's genome.

    Through this process, a genetic material (the building blocks of heredity) is altered in such a way that it made possible the production of new a substances, new character trait or a new functions.

    An example of genetic engineering is when biologists transplant the gene that produces light in a firefly into tobacco plants.

    Changing DNA inside grape seeds so they produce their own pesticide to prevent attack by insects is also an example of genetic engineering.
