Should humans be allowed to manipulate the genomes of other organisms

The basic purpose of science is to gain a better understanding of the universe and everything in between. To do so, things such as genetically modified organisms are put into existence. I believe humans should be allowed to manipulate the genomes of other organisms to a certain extent. It isn’t okay for humans and animals to be engineered because we aren’t sure of what will happen to the existence of those species, natural selection and evolution are enough. However I believe that when it comes to things such as food like the Golden Rice it is alright since its purpose is to benefit the population. Ultimately, whatever is done in science has its consequences; so, it’s very important that multiple studies are done and the possible adverse effects are studied.
