Is it because technology is not advanced enough yet? Or is it just because human cloning might be too dangerous? Many scientists are trying to clone humans but is it ever justified? There are a whole lot of debates on this topic, and I am strongly against it. Human cloning is ethically wrong; there are many risks involved, which will lead to detrimental effects on human society.
Following this major scientific and technological breakthrough, it raised the possibility that humans can be cloned using the same procedure‒ somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). At present, however, human reproductive cloning remains a highly controversial issue. This is particularly due to the associated ethical considerations which include potential genetic damage to the clone, health risks to the mother, psychological harm to the clone and complex altered familial relationships. In this essay, we attempt to argue on why human reproductive cloning should not be banned. Human reproductive cloning, if successful, will allow infertile couples to have a genetically related child.
Both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells have some sort of genetic material, which is DNA. Prokaryotic cells have circular DNA, while eukaryotic cells have more linear DNA. DNA is a compound molecule that contains the genetic material of a cell and the information on how to make proteins. It controls the function and structure of a cell. All cells also contain organelles.
Gaps where primer was are then filled by yet more complementary nucleotides. 9. To make sure there is no mistake in new DNA molecule the new strand is proofread. 10. Finally, enzyme called DNA ligase seal up the sequence of DNA into two continuous double strands.
SUMMARY Genetic screening is the identification test of changes occurring in chromosomes, genes, or proteins that will help determine a person’s chance of developing or passing on a genetic disorder. Through genetic screening, it is possible to acknowledge the presence of a disease in a person’s body even way before the symptoms are showing. This way, genetic screening allows people to acknowledge the disease they may have in advance, which can lead to prevention or early treatment in order to prevent the development of the particular disease. Regardless of the benefits, genetic screening is still considered controversial in the society, considering the concerns about ethical issues. Although the benefits gained from genetic screening that
INTRODUCTION To divide, a cell must grow, replicate its genetic material (DNA), and split into two daughter cells. Cells perform these tasks in an organized series of steps that make up the cell cycle. In eukaryotic cells, or cells with a nucleus, the stages of the cell cycle are divided into two major phases: interphase and the mitotic (M) phase. • During interphase, the cell grows and makes a copy of its DNA. • The mitotic (M) phase, divides the cell DNA into two sets and its cytoplasm, forming two new cells.
A puppy mill is “an establishment that breeds puppies for sale, typically on an intensive basis and in conditions regarded as inhumane.” There are thousands of puppy mills in the United States, some of which are not recorded. Therefore, the ASPCA has concluded that there could be over 10,000 puppy mills in the United States. There are many issues regarding puppy mills, from the way they treat the animals and the upkeep of their environment. Many of the puppy mills are not regulated and not licensed to own a puppy mill. Most people think a puppy mill is just a place where they breed dogs to sell, and they would be right, but they’ve never seen what goes on in the inside of a puppy mill.
Furthermore, such process might not be affordable for poor. Hence, it makes the gene therapy impossible for an average person. 1. Is it ‘Right’? When genetic engineering first became possible, peoples’ first reactions were to immediately question whether it was ‘right’?
Many ethical arguments against human cloning are focused around misguided judgments. Many individuals believe that these clones will have the same qualities/ identities as the individual cloned. Despite the fact that clone and cloned individual have the same genes, characteristics and identities are distinctive. Individuals believe that a clone is physically identical to the contributor and her conduct; however this is not genuine in light of the fact that despite the fact that there is a physical personality, living environment shapes a singular's continuous conduct and brain research. Many individuals believe that cloning will prompt loss of distinction inevitably, however individuals have their own particular identity cloned which identity is like those in which they were made.
Conclusion We discussed few grand area of research in mining biological data. Bioinformatics is the application of computer technology to the management of biological information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied to gene-based drug discovery and development. The next level bio-informatics is re-encoding DNA sequences by Gene editing (or genome editing) is the insertion, deletion or replacement of DNA at a specific site in the genome of an organism or cell. It is achieved using engineered nucleases also known as molecular scissors.
