A quantitative investigation of research papers published in Genetic Engineering from 2006 to 2015 was undertaken to capture the research trends in this field. The analysis applied the following parameters for capturing the trend- growth pattern of the literature, authorship pattern, ranking of the source journals, ranking of the countries, etc. The data was obtained from the SCOPUS database. The authorship analysis identified the top authors in this field, countries contributing to maximum publication, authors attracting highest quality measured through h index, highly influential journals. The contemporary research direction of this field can thus be identified to some extent by this study which can be useful input for policy.
