Because while we are all the same on a genetic level, while we might look different we are all the same. 2. What are a few of the complex internal differences between people that are often assumed to be predicted by observing external differences? Athleticism, intellegence, musical apptitude are oftem assumed to be predicted by observing external differences. 3.
Many great things can be accomplished through genetic engineering, but scientific progress is being halted by the opposition 's use of arguments with questionable logic. Most notably is their fear of designer babies. The problem with designer babies is that complex beneficial traits such as height, strength, intelligence, and attractiveness aren’t determined by one gene, and are also dependent on many other variables that aren’t genetic. Some traits such as the shape of an earlobe, eye color, or an individual’s susceptibility to certain diseases are determined by a single gene, and that specific gene can be identified and isolated by scientists. Professor of translational epidemiology at Emory University, Cecile Janssens states, “Even when all genes and their complex interactions are completely understood, our ability to use gene editing for favorable traits will remain limited because human traits are just not genetic enough.” (Janssens).
The biological consequences of mating depend only on the individual genetic makeup of the couple, and not on their racial classifications. Therefore, no biological justification exists for restricting intermarriage between persons of different racial
Where the cell structure is coloured and can no longer hold as much oxygen in the right way as a normal blood cell. This highlights the underlying ideal in structural biochemistry in the structure influences function. The sickle cell anaemia case is exceedingly interesting because it shows how and why disease develop. The gene for sickle cell anaemia also provides protection against malaria. Therefore, in countries where malaria presented problems, there was a higher than average amount of individual carrying the sickle cell anaemia gene.
It is also true. Beadle and Tatum’s experiment with Neurospora crassa proposed one gene – one enzyme hypothesis. As I mentioned above, it indicates that each mutated gene must normally dictate the production of one enzyme. C. the idea that genes are on chromosomes. This statement is not related to the experiment with Neurospora crassa.
If you find that you have the genetic code for a highly fatal or a certain mental illness, you may dread this, even though there is no guarantee that you’ll get this disease. People might not necessarily understand that, and see identifying this disease as a “death wish.” While doctors could use genetic code to make it easier when diagnosing a patient, there could be more misdiagnoses, leading to mistreatment. Some doctors may only look at diseases listed in your genetic code and treat you for those illnesses, even though the answer might not be in your genetic
This is because with certain organs and tissues becoming worn-out, there are no treatments to cure the problem (such as heart failure) or there are medications that can be used that will have unwanted side-effects with no significant results. (Mason and Dunnill, 2007) Due to this, a doctor should use regenerative medicine using stem cells because it will significantly help the life of a patient and the doctor will be abiding by the Hippocratic Oath which ultimately states all the reasons and ethics physicians have to have become a doctor
Introduction: The purpose of this experiment was to investigate: 1) How student height varies and 2) Whether human height is a sexually dimorphic trait. Sexual dimorphism is where the two sexes of the same species show different characteristics other than the differences in their reproductive organs. Sexual dimorphism takes place in many animals, birds, insects and plants. The main differences include secondary sex characteristics, size (height and weight), color, markings, and sometimes behavioral differences. These differences vary and may be subtle or obvious, however most differing characteristics will conform to a bell-curve distribution which can be described by the mean/average and standard deviation.
First line therapies should target the underlying disease, however platelet transfusions may also be mandatory up to some extend. However, in case of diseases with increased platelet activation and consumption, platelet transfusion is not convenient because it may trigger a new pathologic
I want to focus on one specific issue. Should athletes be able to use performance-enhancement drugs? I do not believe that athletes should be able to use any type of non-over the counter drug. To simplify that more, I believe that drugs such as Ibuprofen, Advil, antibiotics, etc. are perfectly fine for athletes to use.
