Charles Darwin, a famous naturalist and geologist, who developed the theory of evolution and natural selection. Darwin concluded his work with observations of birds but didn’t have strong evidence to prove his theory. As of a couple years ago, a group of scientist from the University of Utah did an experiment on DNA from pigeons. From the experiment, the scientists were able to conclude that Darwin’s theory was correct (Osborne). Genetic research is well known as the practice of analyzing DNA strains as well as modifying DNA strains. DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid, which is genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning, and reproduction of all known living organisms. DNA is like a thousand page book about you. Genetic research has opened up doors to many new experiments and questions. Genetic research has been a huge controversy throughout the whole world. Genetic research is viewed as either as destroying or improving the lives of people. Genetic research has helped create solutions for many diseases, solve investigations easier, as well as, being able to find a family member. So without a doubt, genetic research has improved our lives.
Scientist spends several hours analyzing DNA strains, but every hour spent is worth it. Before genetic research, genetic-based diseases were unsolvable and completely unknown to doctors. Many of the genetic-based diseases were seen as made up by the patients because of symptoms being told. According to the…
