'Crossing Over' ...

Ian has beaten me :)

Just to make it clear, during meiosis there is a process that inhibits recombination happening near the same spot twice.

Genetic engineering though IS possible, where such homologous recombination exchanges a very specific piece of DNA.. but there are also length restriction, I am not aware how long since I never actually did the experiment :)
