  1. 1. Designer Babies By Nick D and Nick F.
  2. 2. Basic Principles of Genetics <ul><li>Some alleles are dominant and some are recessive. If a dominant allele is present and it will always show. A recessive allele is covered up when the dominant is present. </li></ul><ul><li>Genes are passed from parents to their offspring on chromosomes. </li></ul><ul><li>In co dominance the alleles are not dominant or recessive. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Human Genome Project <ul><li>The main goal of the human genome project is to get the DNA sequence of every human genome. </li></ul><ul><li>Researchers will gain a better understanding of how humans develop from a fertelized egg to an adults. They will also learn about how the body works and how things go wrong. New understandings will lead to prevention strategies for genetic disorders. </li></ul><ul><li>Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act [GINA]. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Genetic Disorders <ul><li>A single gene disorder is Down Syndrome. Down Syndrome is genetic disorder when a persons cells have a extra copy of chromosome 21. </li></ul><ul><li>Chromosomes abnormalities occur when there are too many or too few chromosomes. </li></ul><ul><li>Genetic counseling helps perspective parents with karyotypes, pedigree charts, and punnett squares. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Designer Babies Pro Arguments <ul><li>Designer babies can help save a persons life. Genetic screening could lower the chances of a baby have down syndrome. </li></ul><ul><li>Same thing with Charlie Whitaker. They made a designer baby to help save his life from a genetic disorder. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Designer Babies Con Arguments <ul><li>Genetic engineering if accepted will have a negative impact on the society. It will result in increase of unreasonable fear or hatred towards foreigners or anyone who appears different . </li></ul><ul><li>Designer babies concept will lead to discrimination on the basics of certain qualities or traits. Kids of rich families will receive genetic enhancement. Leading to genetic aristocracy. This gives them an unfair advantage over the other children. </li></ul>
