1. Human Cloning<br />By Nick Fulgione and Chris Aguilar <br />
2. Basic Principles of Genetics<br />Traits are controlled by dominant and recessive alleles<br />Traits are controlled with co-dominant alleles<br />The alleles of two parents combine to express traits in offspring<br />
3. Human Genome Project<br /><ul><li>Begun formally in 1990, the U.S. Human Genome Project was a 13-year effort coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health. The project originally was planned to last 15 years, but rapid technological advances accelerated the completion date to 2003.The reason why scientists wanted to use this information:
4. identify all the approximately 20,000-25,000 genes in human DNA,
5. determine the sequences of the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA,
6. store this information in databases,
7. improve tools for data analysis,
8. transfer related technologies to the private sector, and
9. address the ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) that may arise from the project. </li></li></ul><li>Human Genome Part 2<br /> A genome is all the DNA in an organism, including its genes.<br />One ethical implication is fairness in the use of DNA is insured by employers, courts, schools, adoption agencies, and the military, among others. <br />One legal implication is privacy and confidentiality of DNA . <br />One social implication is psychological impact and stigmatization due to a person’s genetic differences. <br />The law does not allow U.S.A insurance companies and employees from discriminating the basis of information.<br />
10. Genetic Disorders<br /><ul><li>Single gene disorder- A disease caused by abnormality in one gene.
11. Chromosome abnormalities- abnormality or aberration reflects an a typical number of chromosomes or a structural abnormality in one or more chromosomes.
12. Multifactorial disorders- mutations in multiple genes, which may interact with environmental factors.
13. counseling helps the information to people whose unborn children are at risk for certain genetic diseases and birth defects or if the parents are about but not certain to have cancer and they wanted to adopt a child they would not let them because the parents might die and the child will be alone
15. </li></li></ul><li>Genetic Disorder part 2<br />karyotypes used to predict genetic disorders because the two parents can have a diseased child because of the chromosome of the parents.<br />
16. Argument One<br />Human cloning isn't a wrong thing because what if something happens if it can tern into something like a zombie or an evil scientist that will destroy the world. Also some of the cloning can be unethical due to the fails that scientist. The scientists said the 30 percent of the clones is a big problem. <br />
17. Argument 2<br />Argument 2 <br />Time for kids <br />There was a debate that NAS a company that wants to clone human is debating with the congress and congress doesn’t like the idea. The spoke to Mark Rothstein Said “I think Congress has a very high regard for the NAS as an institution, but not necessarily for everything they do. So I doubt Congress would feel in any way bound by what the NAS recommends on this issue.” <br />
18. Argument 4 part 2<br />Ethical issue<br />Doctor Phil B is against human cloning because she said that it could probably cause cancer and cell problem and other stuff. And that why Nick and Chris is going with Doctor Phil B.<br />
19. Argument 3<br /> Famous people that disagree about Human cloning is George w. Bush disagree and The pope and Barrack Obama and many other. <br />
20. Argument 4<br />Nick and I think that if you clone a human is wrong because it isn't going to be a civilization people are going to get mixed up who is who. people are thinking that the clone will have the same personality as the actual human but you never know if there personality are different <br />
21. Punnet square <br />Let us show you a pedigree diagram of human cloning in a punnett square form a a example of punnett square <br />
22. Conclusion <br />Human cloning is a bad thing and now you know why Nick and I disagree on Human cloning and I think the government should not fund Human cloning <br />
