    change, and who decides this? Will we be allowed to use gene editing to change basic human traits such as intelligence and athletic ability? Who will be able to afford gene editing? Will it make society less accepting of people who are born with genetic conditions? These are some of the questions this seminar will examine. The first topics to be studied are; what is gene editing and how does it work? Being able to understand the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of gene editing will allow the students to gain…

    to study genetics for more than a hundred years. Thomas Hunt Morgan, in the early 1900’s, used the heritable traits of a common species of fruit fly to develop our understanding of genetics. Morgan was the first to show through experiments that genes were located on chromosomes. He also found that certain fruit fly traits like eye color are found on the same chromosomes that also determine their sex. Fruit flies have several characteristics that make them excellent subjects for genetic studies.…

    When it comes to genetic engineering this saying comes to mind most disagreements are cause by different perceptions that create different realities. There is so many ways to viewpoints to technology that leave the question is there even a right and a wrong to the scientific advancement of new genetics. Truth is no matter what your stance is on genetics you cannot believe the best thing to do is have the scientists should stop the development or to believe what they 're doing is completely okay.…

    The Four Forces of Evolution If we were to think back thousands of years ago to how things were or how things looked, they would be drastically different than how they appear now. Primates, insects, plants, resources, and lifestyles are all very different than they used to be. Over time they have been steadily changing and adapting to their surroundings. This process of changing is called evolution, discovered by Charles Darwin (Haviland, Prins, Walrath, McBride 2015 Pgs.32-34). With such a…

    the importance of Genetics in health care early in my time studying Medicine and later have gained profound knowledge of it as well as Cell Biology and Molecular Biology through in-depth Biomedical studies. However, it is during my current study on the genetic disorder Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) when my passion for the Laboratory Genetics and Genomics was lighted. My passion for the Laboratory Genetics and Genomics was lighted while I am conducting current studies on the genetic disorder…

    1. The hypothesis tested in the Navarrete et al. 2016 paper, which revolved around in virto fertilization of sterile mouse models when exposed to calcium ionohpore, sought to determine whether transient exposure to a calcium ionphore alone was sufficient to overcome upstream hyperpolarization and PKA pathway defects in infertile mouse models that normally occur prior to a intracellular calcium increase in functional and sufficiently capacitated mouse sperm cells. Additionally, they examined…

    The video I reflected on was “Cracking Your Genetic Code”. The documentary begins talking about a flash drive that contains a person’s genetic code. There are 6 billion letters in it and we could have a chance to see genome sequence for $1,000. But there are some ups and downs about it. Some people think it’s invasive because even insurance companies could look at it. But it could predict cancer. This could affect one’s life forever. How well do you want to know yourself? Genomics is almost…

    of the Plasmid vs the Expression of the Added Plasmid Introduction The earliest example of genetic engineering was performed by Gregor Mendel in 1865, when Mendel performed artificial selection on a population of pea plants in the monastery where he lived (http://www.sciencegroup.org.uk/ifgene/history.htm). Once the technological advancements of the 20th century was introduced to the science field, genetic engineering took on a whole new light. Scientist could now transform organisms in ways…
