  • Michael Sandel The Case Against Perfection Analysis

    Michael Sandel in “The case Against Perfection” talks about benefits and drawbacks in genetic engineering, designer children, and bionic athletes. The benefit is that improving technological advancement, we will be able to treat and prevent many diseases that are prevalent today. The downside is that exponential growth of technologies will allow us to manipulate our own nature, to enhance our cognitive abilities, physical strength, and choose genetic traits of our children to make ourselves…

  • Pros And Cons Of Genetic Engineering Babies

    Genetically engineering Babies Genetically engineering our children could potentially be a popular thing of the future. As this theory develops there are two different opinions on this situation. There are scientist who are completely for genetic engineering and there are scientist completely against it. So far this is still in testing but it very well could be a normal concept right around the corner. Genetically engineering means that they modify or change genes in a zygote (fertilized egg).…

  • Eugenics: The Benefits Of Genetic Engineering

    In the beginning of the 20th century, the human mind was much more inclined to search for scientific answers to society’s problems by perfecting the human race by applying the laws of genetic heredity. In 1883, Sir Francis Galton, a respected British scientist, first used the term Eugenics, “the study of all agencies under human control which can improve or impair the racial quality of future generations.” He believed that the human race could help direct its future by selectively breeding…

  • Similarities Between Watson And Crick

    Watson and Francis Crick unraveled the mystery of molecular biology. James Watson and Francis Crick have significantly improved the world with their discovery of the structure of deoxyribonucleic acid, commonly known as DNA. The prodigious work they accomplished in their lives has had a profound impact on modern science. James Watson and Francis Crick deserve to be honored among the list of 100 influential Americans put out by The Atlantic publication. James Watson and his colleague, Francis…

  • The End Of Homo Sapiens Analysis

    Sapiens is written by Yuval Noah Harari, who puts forward so many concerns about homo sapiens future after we have broken the laws of “natural selection.” The goal of this paper is to do the close reading of the content’s last part and give some opinions on author’s arguments. In the last part “The End of Homo Sapiens”, Harari points out that we have broken the laws of natural selection and entered the new realm of intelligent design, worrying about what the future will be like for homo…

  • Should Genetic Engineering Be Allowed?

    Genetic engineering, also called genetic modification, is the process of directly alternating an organism’s DNA in its genome using biotechnology. Genetic modification has been in practice for many years in the domestication of plants and animals, but despite its unprecedented progress, gene editing in humans, especially in embryonic stem cells, is one of the major controversies in health and science field nowadays. In the article from The Guardian, “Genetically modified human embryos should be…

  • Case Study Of Rosalind Franklin

    the Carleton Prize for Biotechnology, I would like to nominate the brilliant scientist Rosalind Franklin. Her crystallographic work at King’s College, London was a crucial contribution to the double-helix model of DNA discovered by James Watson and Francis Crick (Gregory, 2002). Her contributions to the scientific community are still being quoted today and without the discovery of the structure of DNA, present day scientific projects such as The Genome project would not have been possible…

  • John Evans Playing God Summary

    In “Playing God?” by John Evans, technology is dashing at an erratic speed, and nowhere more so than in the field of genetic engineering where the possibility of changing the genes of one’s children isn’t just myth; but quickly becoming a reality. John H. Evans is professor of sociology at the University of California, San Diego. He has been a visiting member of the School of Social Sciences at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, a post-doctoral fellow at the Robert Wood Johnson…

  • Comparing James Watson And Francis Crick

    1. James Watson and Francis Crick were credited for discovering the double helix structure of DNA molecule. James Watson is known to have received his degrees at the University of Chicago and his PHD at the University of India. He then met Francis Crick at the University of Cambridge where he later worked after receiving his PHD. Francis Crick during the World War II was some biophysics who held develop radar and magnetic mines then after the war he then began the structure of DNA research with…

  • Swamp Fox History

    November 1780 Lt. Colonel Banastre Tarleton of the British Army hunted a man by the name Francis Marion. Lt. Colonel Tarleton hunted this man for seven hours through the backwoods and swamps of South Caroline, eventually giving up and stated “As for this old, fox the devil himself could not catch him.” Francis Marion would forever be known as the Swamp Fox. Francis “Swamp Fox” Marion was an important figure in history especially military history because; he was the pioneer of guerilla tactics,…
