  • Similarities Between Dna And Macroevolution

    Deoxyribonucleic acid is known as the molecule of inheritance where its structure dictates its function in storing the genetic information of the organism (Rafael, 2010). This molecule contains genes which encode proteins needed for the complex biochemical metabolic reactions which occur within the organism (Rafael, 2010). The DNA molecule consists of 2 complementary strands in a helical structure where each strand serves as an informational template for the offspring during duplication (Rafael,…

  • Sickle Cell Anemia Report

    Sickle cell anemia is an inherited disease in which the red blood cells have a deformed shape, which reduces their effectiveness to transport oxygen to the different parts of the body. Sickle cell anemia is predominantly present in people whose ancestors come from Africa. It is also common in people with Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Indian Ancestry. The clinical diagnosis for sickle cell anemia is usually only evident in the patients who are heterozygous for the Hemoglobin S allele. The…

  • Sequencing Essay

    With the advancements made in technology daily and new scientific studies and explorations, the science community is always on the brink of something big. And the next big thing might be designer babies. Deeper and more profound exploration into cells and genetics have allowed for the possibility of designer babies to emerge. Before creating designer babies was even an idea, scientists were first working towards sequencing the human genome. By sequencing the human genome, scientists will be able…

  • The Forever Fix: Genetic Analysis

    Ricki Lewis’s The Forever Fix: Gene Therapy and the Boy Who Saved It tells the tale of gene therapy’s rocky road from a wild idea people considered to be a “daydream” to a growing field providing lucky individuals with treatment to prevent their life-shattering genetic diseases. In her novel, Lewis discusses two major biological concepts: mutation and gene expression. To give the reader the molecular basis for genetic disorders, mutation is briefly addressed. Lewis gives two different examples…

  • Antibiotic Sensitivity Advantages And Disadvantages

    Antibiotic sensitivity is the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotics. Susceptibility can vary within bacteria of the same species due to different strains; with some strains being more resistant than others. Antimicrobial resistance is the ability of a microorganism to survive and multiply in the presence of an antimicrobial agent that would normally inhibit or kill this species of microorganism. Antibiotic susceptibility tests are done in order to determine, which specific antimicrobials…

  • Gene Regulation In Biotechnology

    Today in the 21st century our gene technology is continually developing. New projects and discoveries are being made on a daily basis. Gene technology provides humans the opportunity to improve human and animal health, to create a safer and more sustainable food resources, and generate fortune for Australia. Gene technology is “where the genetic material of living things is deliberately altered to enhance or remove a particular trait and allow the organism to perform new functions” (Environment…

  • Genetic Therapy: The Limitations Of Gene Therapy

    cells, which all carry various instructions. Inside of our DNA, there is a unique chemical code, which determines our growth, development, and health. This specific code is derived by four nucleotide bases that conform the DNA. These are called, adenine, cytosine, guanine, and thymine and are often represented as A, C, G, and T. In 1990, the Human Genome Project was conducted by the National Institutes of Health, and the US Department of Energy. This project allowed the understanding of the…

  • Pros And Cons Of Germ Gene Line Therapy

    for parents. The germ gene line therapy is a process of transferring the DNA into the reproductive cells in the body such as an egg or a sperm cell. DNA is deoxyribonucleic acid which is double helix code which consists of nitrogenous bases such as adenine, thymine, guanine, and cytosine. These nitrogenous bases account for the genome code of A,T,G, and C. The nitrogenous base provides a specific sequence unique to each individual inherited from parents’ genetics. This DNA transferring involves…
