Genetics project

  1. 1. Genetics Project By, Liam Donohue and Kyle Griggs
  2. 2. Basic Principles of Genetics <ul><li>Individual alleles control the in heritance of traits. </li></ul><ul><li>The alleles are neither dominant or recessive. As a result they are not masked in the offspring. </li></ul><ul><li>Use of a punnet square to show all outcomes of a genetic cross. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Human Genome Project <ul><li>The project started in 1990 and the main goal of the Human genome project is to identify the DNA sequence of every gene in the human genome. </li></ul><ul><li>To understand how human develop from a fertilized egg to an adult, may lead to new treatment and prevention strategies for genetic disorders. </li></ul><ul><li>The Gina law May 2008 protected people from discrimination in there work place. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Genetic Disorders <ul><li>One example of a single gene disorder is cystic fibrosis which is a disorder in which the body produces abnormally thick mucus in the lungs and intestines. </li></ul><ul><li>Chromosome abnormalities occur by mutations, or changes in a persons DNA. 3 examples of genetic disorders are Cystic Fibrosis, Hemophilia, and Down Syndrome. </li></ul><ul><li>Genetic counseling can help perspective parents who have a genetic disorder regarding future children by ordering a test of the parents and telling them what are the chances of there baby having disorder. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Human Cloning Con <ul><li>Arguments Against Reproductive Cloning </li></ul><ul><li>Reproductive cloning would foster an understanding of children, and of people in general, as objects that can be designed and manufactured to possess specific characteristics. </li></ul><ul><li>While people are in constant pursuit of ways to improve and advance the quality of human life, some activities in the field of genetics face scrutiny from many advocacy groups because they are seen as violating fundamental environmental and ethical principles. Human cloning is one area of genetic engineering that has ignited intense debates. Below are some environmental and ethical arguments against human cloning. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Human Cloning Con <ul><li>The arguments in support of a ban on human cloning are numerous and varied; they are, in fact, too varied to cover them all in a single paper. Nonetheless, there are a number of arguments that appear with relative frequency and can be grouped under general headings that seem to express natural fears and misgivings about human cloning and humanity’s relationship to the process of cloning in a moral sense. </li></ul><ul><li>On the scientific side, we see that a large percentage of cloning efforts end in failure. For example, it took hundreds of attempts to clone Dolly the sheep. Often clones don't live as long as sexually reproduced animals, possibly because the genes taken from adults are more likely to have undergone mutations. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Human Cloning Pro <ul><li>1. The number of men and women who do not produce eggs or sperm at all is very small, and has been greatly reduced by modern assisted-reproduction techniques. If cloning could be perfected and used for this limited group, it would be all but impossible to prevent its use from spreading. Further, this argument appropriates the phrase &quot;genetically related&quot; to embrace a condition that has never before occurred in human history, one which abolishes the genetic variations that have always existed between parent and child. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Even if cloning were safe, it would be impossible to allow reproductive cloning for lesbians or gay men without making it generally available to all. Policy and social changes that protect lesbian and gay families are a much more pressing need. </li></ul>Arguments for Reproductive Cloning
  8. 8. Human Cloning Pro <ul><li>Divorce, extramarital sex, contraception and in vitro fertilization all disrupt the unity of marriage and parenthood. Cloning is yet another blow to the unity which should exist in Christian marriage. </li></ul><ul><li>Reproductive cloning could allow parents of a child who has died to seek redress for their loss. </li></ul>.
  9. 9. Conclusion <ul><li>In conclusion, we like the idea of Human Cloning. We like human cloning because if you like the traits of one baby you can make a copy of the same baby. </li></ul>
