Once the conceptual model has been developed, it provides students a scaffold for linking scientific concepts to applied writing. There are many benefits of genetic engineering, but there are many risks too. The authors conclude that "remarkable prediction success has been achieved in both a one-step ahead and a multistep predicting horizon" (p.208) - in fact, they state that their results are better by far than any related predictive strategies attempted on this data series or other currencies.
