Genetics

  1. 1. STEM CELLS<br />GENETICS<br />
  2. 2. are undifferentiated cells that have the potential to form an entire organism.<br />they can be given to cells with a specific function to replace lost or damaged tissues.<br />hold the potential to treat genetic disorders such as Diabetes, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's disease. <br />and can virtually adapt to any cell life and replicate their functions.<br />Stem Cells...<br />
  3. 3. This book is great for giving a very standard elaboration on what stem cells are, how they’re used and where they come from. There’s only 2 pages dedicated to stem cell information, but it covers all the basics. Important words in relation such as “embryo” and “multipotent” are in bold lettering which is very helpful. The pages contain a high magnification picture of blood stem cells and a fantastic picture of a human embryo. This is an excellent book worth giving a quick read to gain knowledge on stem cells.<br />DNA and Genetic Engineering<br />
  4. 4.
  5. 5. Learn. Genetics (http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/tech/stemcells/)<br /> This website offer great exploration into the world of stem cells. It contains informative animation videos of how stem cells are derived, how they work and what they’re importance is. There’s also a great reference page describing all the types of stem cells and for which tissue they can be used for. The tutorials are easy to follow and not extremely advanced in scientific terms, which makes it easy for teens to comprehend. Throughout the website there are plenty of charts and pictures that provide efficient visual learning. There are many opportunities to get involved in learning about stem cells with different articles, videos and discussions. <br />
  6. 6. PAGES FROM LEARN. GENETICS WEB SITE<br />
  7. 7. Stem Save (http://stemsave.wordpress.com/tag/stem-cells/)<br /> This site contains hundreds of informative articles written by researchers and doctors. Articles written on new developments, breakthroughs and treatments in stem cell research. Originally the sit is for people looking for cost efficient stem cells, but it serves as a great site to visit when digging into stem cell research. There’s a search bar that can scan hundreds of articles to find ones that best fit your criteria. Also to learn more about stem cell banks you can watch a quick video. Updated daily, Stem Save serves as a neat tool to use when researching current stem cell developments.<br />
