  • Summary: CRISPR

    In the world of engineering, the fairly new technology CRISPR lives up to its potential. CRISPR is a technology used to scan the patient 's genetic code and search for genetic diseases, it then “erases” the bad gene and replaces it with a neutral one. With this process we can eliminate many deadly genetic diseases such as Alzheimer 's, Diseases that causes the carrier to become blind, and some forms of cancer. Francisco Mojica discovered the gene editing tool in 1993. Although Mojica was the…

  • Genetic Engineering In A Nutshell

    In class students were asked to examine genetic engineering and develop their own opinion about the controversial topic based on the video shown in class. The video that we watched was Genetic Engineering Will Change Everything Forever- Crisper in a Nutshell. I learned a lot about genetic engineering through the film. I discovered that Crisper was excelling the process of genetic engineering that already existed. Throughout the film I began to develop my opinions about the use of genetic…

  • Four Idols Of The Tribe

    Four Idols Sir Francis Bacon divided the flaws of human thinking and understanding into four parts. These parts are in order of Idols of the Tribe, Idols of the Cave, Idols of the Market-place, and Idols of the Theatre. Each idol represents a separate fault in the way we perceive occurrences in the natural world and attempt to find a solid, unbiased, fact based, conclusion to the reasons behind the occurrences. These Idols, some more than others, inhibit one’s ability to have a clear way of…

  • Ethical Issues In Biomedical Research

    The first time that I was exposed to genetic engineering was when I was a rising junior in college and attended a summer Biomedical Sciences program hosted by the University of Maryland. We learned about many aspects of genetics in the Biomedical research field and that immediately piqued my interest. I was further exposed to genetics, the act of gene splicing, and altering genomes in a lab when we first hand inserted a plasmid from an organism into a bacteria causing the activity and…

  • Genetic Modification In Children

    Approximately 3 million children have been injured and/or broke several bones that could have been fixed easily if technology was advanced enough. For example, children who have broken their bones could rapidly heal their injuries and get back to being active again. One possible way of achieving this feat is genetic modification. Genetic modification allows the total control of DNA which results in varying mutations that could prevent any undesirable traits appearing in children. This…
