Extinct Species Cloning By: Maggie Murtha + Elizabeth Harrigan
Basic Principles of Genetics The recessive allele is masked when the dominant allele is present. Co dominance is a condition in which neither of the two alleles of a gene is dominant or recessive. A Punnett Square is a chart that shows all the possible combinations of alleles that can result from a Genetic Cross. Geneticists use Punnett Squares to show all the possible outcomes of a genetic cross and to determine probability of a particular outcome.
Human Genome Project A genome is all the DNA in one cell of an organism . The Project begin approximately around the 1900’s. Scientist will know the DNA sequence of every human gene, and the amino acid sequence of protein. It was speculated that this project would take two decades. Some scientist did not even think it could be done because the technology was not ready for this kind of project. ELSI focused on dealing with the most immediate applications or consequences of genome research. These issues involve genetics research, responsible clinical integration of new genetic technologies, privacy and fair use of genetic information, and professional and public education about these issues.
Genetic Disorder Years ago, doctors had only Punnett Squares and pedigrees to help them predict whether a child might have a genetic disorder Today doctors use tools such as amniocentesis and karyotypes to help detect genetic disorders Genetic Disorder is an abnormal condition that a person inherits through genes or chromosomes. Genetic Disorders are caused by mutations or changes in a persons DNA.
Argument 1 I am for Extinct Species Cloning because it is used for a good cause. Another reason why I am for Extinct Species Cloning is because if there are any animals that are extinct we can clone them so that they can come back and we can have more of them in our world today.
Argument 2 I am for Extinct Species cloning because animals a lot of the mammals that were on Earth years ago are no longer on Earth and with Extinct Animal Species Cloning , we will be able to have them back on Earth.
Conclusion While doing this project, My Partner and I learned a lot of new information on The Basic Principles of Genetics, Human Genome Project and The Basic Principles of Genetics.
