  • Designer Babies Nick Cupo Period 9 Ms Martinez
  • Basic Principles of Genetics Dominant Traits (B) that are dominant will always be expressed when present. Recessive traits(b) will only be expressed when the dominant is not present. *In codominace alleles are neither dominant or recessive. As a result both alleles will show up at the same time in the organism. Punnett Square B B b Bb Bb b Bb Bb
  • Each parent has 46 chromosomes but only 23 chromosomes get passed on to the offspring from each parent. A punette square shows possible alleles combination from each parent.

  • Human genome project
    • The main goal of the Human Genome Project is to identify the dna sequence of every gene in the human genome. When the human genome project is completed an encylopedia of genetic information about humans will be avaliable. Scientists will know the dna sequence of every human gene and thus the amino acid sequence of every protein.
    • The Human Genome Project was started in 1990
    • It was completed in 2003
    • The Genomic Information Nondiscriminatory Act (GINA) signed in 2008 by President George W. Bush to prevent employers from not hiring people who may have had a conditioned sequenced by the project.
  • Human gentic disorders A 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 Pro The parents can pick what gender, eye color, skin color and hair color for their baby. They can choose many other traits also like intelligence, height beauty and freedom from illnesses. If one of the parents has a genetic disorder of some sort with designer babies you can prevent your child from getting the disease. You might have spend a lot of money for the procedure, but you can have good outcomes for your child.
  • Argument 2 The procedure can go wrong and the child and mother can be damaged for life.

  • Designer Babies Argument 2 con The amnioprocedure takes out cells from the amniotic sac surrounding the fetus and both mother and baby may be damaged for life.
  • Designer Babies Argument 1 Pro Parents in China sometimes kill there babies if there not males they might kill them if there girls because they want them to carry on the family name. If they have the designer baby program they will be able to chose a boy instead of having an abortion when it’s a girl. The government should fund this program because it would benefit a lot of people in China especially. This will also help parents who have a preferences on their child’s looks.
  • Conclusion The government should give money to the designer babies program so that people are able to decide what there child looks like. Also what they would act like, what there IQ is. If the government were to give money to designer babies it would be a great contribution to society.
