Genetic Engineering is the direct or indirect manipulation of an organisms genes.  

 A method of indirect GE is inbreeding, or only breeding organisms with a specific trait.  An example of this is broccoli, califlower and other plants that are the modern day desendents of the wild onion.  Animal breeders also do the same thing, breeding animals so that they will be larger, fatter, stronger or faster.
