Explain the following for Basic Principles of Genetics <ul><li>A dominant allele is an allele whose trait always shows up in the organism when the allele is present. A recessive allele is masked when a dominant allele is present. </li></ul><ul><li>Co dominance is a condition in which neither of two alleles of a gene is dominant or recessive. </li></ul><ul><li>There carried by chromosomes </li></ul>Bb BB bb Bb
Explain the following for Human Genome Project <ul><li>The project started in 1990 and scientist hoped to use it to study people and use it to help find cures for cancer and diseases. </li></ul><ul><li>The implication of science ethnic regards to the human genome project is issues raised by the human genome can be grouped into two general categories: genetic engineering and genetic information. Their implication on the legal regards to human genome is those concerning the protections that laws or regulations should provide. Their implications on social implications are concerned with how events may affect society as a whole and individuals in society. GINA is to pass the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA), which bans insurers and employers from taking genetic information into account. </li></ul><ul><li>Senate is currently considering legislation that would lift a 1995 ban on federal funding of research on human embryonic stem cells. </li></ul>
Explain the following for Genetic Disorders <ul><li>Single Gene Disorder is the result of a single mutated gene. Chromosome abnormality reflects an atypical number of chromosomes or a structural abnormality in one or more chromosomes. Multifactorial disorder has to do with your lifestyle and your environmental factors it also includes have heart disease and diabetes. An example of an chromosome abnormality is Down Syndrome </li></ul><ul><li>The difference between all three disorders are that they all have to do with something different but they all are genetic diseases that you can inherit. </li></ul><ul><li>they can prepare them and warn them that they should try and get help so the child doesn’t come out with the disorder and they should see if the child would get it or the child’s child would get so then when the daughter or son gets older they can check to see which of there children would get it. </li></ul><ul><li>They count and if a person has to much they have a genetic condition called polysomy and if they don’t have enough the person has a genetic condition called monosomy. </li></ul>
Argument 1 <ul><li>Human Cloning can be the way to human breakthrough. </li></ul><ul><li>Since the clone created is exactly the same than the 1 st person, we can be sure that transplants won’t be rejected and scientists could understand how cells grow and differentiate, so that they could create the organs they need. </li></ul><ul><li>Human cloning is the easiest possibility to permit to infertile couples to have children. </li></ul><ul><li>Human cloning will give us more information about species in general and we will be able to clone animals or plants. </li></ul>
Argument 2 <ul><li>In some societies, being able to determine the sex, whether it is a boy or girl, is very important. </li></ul><ul><li>The process of Human Cloning increases the risk of hurting the embryos. </li></ul><ul><li>During the human cloning process, embryos are crested and tested on for viability. </li></ul><ul><li>A lot of people worry that cloned people would not have full rights, since they are just copies. </li></ul>
Human Cloning <ul><li>I’m also not for human cloning </li></ul><ul><li>I’m against it because taken a heart or an important organ from your clone is like taking it from another human who has rights. Also a clone has a right to say no I don’t want to donate a organ to this person. </li></ul><ul><li>I think human cloning can be dangerous but helpful at the same time but I think later on in the future scientist will learn and prefect human cloning. </li></ul>
Pros <ul><li>The pro's of cloning is you get a person that died and you bring them back alive from the dead. </li></ul><ul><li>Cloning pros are like cloning hearts and all different kinds of organs. So people who need organs wont have to be on the waiting list and so they wont die while there waiting. </li></ul><ul><li>Pros are the organs and tissues that can be cloned. Also people who cant have a baby wont have to use in vitro and they can still have a kid. </li></ul>
Cons <ul><li>The cons are it could go wrong and you might end up with a deformed person or the person could still look dead. So people who need organs wont have to be on the waiting list and so they wont die while there waiting. </li></ul><ul><li>Cloning should not be used to keep good or bad people alive forever. </li></ul><ul><li>since clones just have the same DNA as their parent, they are not the same person and will most likely develop a different personality. </li></ul>
