  1. 1. Human Cloning Taylor Hurban and Lucy Tasker
  2. 2. Basic Principles Of Genetics <ul><li>Traits are controlled by dominate alleles because if there is a dominate allele present then that trait will be shown. </li></ul><ul><li>Co-dominance is when both alleles are dominate but for the same trait but yet different. Such as red fur and white fur might be both dominate. </li></ul><ul><li>½ of your chromosomes are brought from each parent to you. Each of your sex-cells has half of the chromosomes needed for life. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Human Cloning <ul><li>The idea of cloning has been lingering since the beginning of recorded time. In many stories the gods have dreamed oh having children without a woman. But the first notion cloning in the scientific world was in 1938. The actual attempt to making of the first clone was in 1952. Sadly it didn’t work. So ten years later the first frog clone was made though it but did not last to adulthood. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Genetic Disorder <ul><li>A genetic disorder is an abnormal condition that a person inherits through genes or chromosomes. It is caused by mutations, or changes in a persons DNA. </li></ul><ul><li>Single gene disorders are genetic conditions caused by the alteration or mutation of a specific gene in the affected person’s DNA. Single gene disorders are heritable and often run in families. Individuals with a family history of a single gene disorder may be at risk for passing the condition onto their children. </li></ul><ul><li>A chromosome anomaly, abnormality or aberration reflects an atypical number of chromosomes or a structural abnormality in one or more chromosomes. A Karyotype refers to a full set of chromosomes from an individual which can be compared to a &quot;normal&quot; Karyotype for the species via genetic testing. </li></ul><ul><li>Multifactorial Disorders are frequently seen clustering in families, but they do no have a well-established pattern of inheritance. Thus, it becomes difficult to determine whether a person is at risk to inherit or pass on this disorder to the next generation. </li></ul><ul><li>How can genetic counseling help perspective parents who have a genetic disorder regarding future children? is the process by which patients or relatives, at risk of an inherited disorder, are advised of the consequences and nature of the disorder, the probability of developing or transmitting it, and the options open to them in management and family planning order to prevent, avoid or ameliorate it. </li></ul>
  5. 5. How can genetic counseling help perspective parents who have a genetic disorder regarding future children? process by which patients or relatives, at risk of an inherited disorder, are advised of the consequences and nature of the disorder, the probability of developing or transmitting it, and the options open to them in management and family planning order to prevent, avoid or ameliorate it.
  6. 6. How are karyotypes used to predict genetic disorders?  Scientists can predict genetic disorders by looking for extra or missing chromosomes in a karyotypes
  7. 7. Argument 1 Against: Reproductive cloning because of psychotherapy For: Better chickens and endangered species
  8. 8. For : Against:
