Basic Principles of Genetics<br /><ul><li>How are traits controlled by dominant and recessive alleles?
Individual alleles control the inheritance of traits.
How are traits controlled with co-dominant alleles?
Co-dominance alleles is masked in the offspring's cause it neither dominant nor recessive.
Explain how the alleles of two parents combine to express traits in offspring?
According to the chromosome theory of inheritance, genes are carried from parents to their offspring on chromosomes</li></li></ul><li>Human Genome Project<br /><ul><li>When did the project start and how did scientists hope to use this information?
the project began in the 1990’s,and was use for determine that a human genome has about 25,000 genes.
What are the implications of the Human Genome project in regards to Ethical, legal and Social implications?
The legal information is use for only for the scientist, but they are unsure about what's going to happen.
How did the human genome project change current laws such as GINA?
Since the human genome project would lead to some personal information people would start to sue the scientist.</li></li></ul><li>Genetic Disorder<br /><ul><li>single gene disorder- genetic conditions caused by the alteration or mutation of a specific gene in the affected person’s DNA
chromosome abnormalities- atypical number of chromosomes or a structural abnormality in one or more chromosomes.
multifactorial disorders- Some disorders, such as sickle cell anemia and cystic fibrosis, are caused by mutations in a single gene
How can genetic counseling help perspective parents who have a genetic disorder regarding future children?
The genetic counselor might order a test to determine whether they are carriers of the allele for any genetic disorder.
How are karyotypes used to predict genetic disorders?
Karotypes are one of the tools genetic counselors use if they want the couple to have a test.</li></li></ul><li>Genetic Disorder Graph<br />Graph of Gene Disorders<br />
Argument 1<br /> I agree to the idea of human cloning. They are studying twins to make people have a twin. Scientists think human cloning might be a cure for Parkinson's disease. In the past thought for a cure if the scientist do human cloning. <br />
Argument 2<br /> Human cloning has the potential significantly to reduce human suffering and enhance human happiness. This is a good thing because it like taking the sad/suffering and happiness in to two people. Scientist got the idea from identical twins and did research on them. most scientist been researching human cloning since the twentieth century so they should start soon.<br />
Argument 3<br /> I also oppose to the idea. Their using babies for testing. And if scientist did it on a uncertain dieses which could kill them. Scientist also done testing on animals harming them. I thing their harming the people and animals.<br />
Argument 4<br /> It seem unsafe to take people’s DNA. People are sue cause scientist could take their DNA. As the clone develops each stage there might have danger if the clone becomes more aggressive (as the people thought.) the risk of arguments could lead to a war. <br />
Conclusion<br /><ul><li>I learned that down syndrome is a genetic disorder.
Human cloning could be a cure for many disease, but could also kill people.
Lot’s of people sue scientist for using DNA</li></li></ul><li>Works Cited<br />Hansen, B. (2004, October 22). Cloning debate.
