    • 4 Pages

    Scientific experiments and observations have led to many discoveries, which in turn have allowed scientists to develop a better understanding on the way diseases originate in humans. Molecular biology in particular has allowed scientists to discover the way in which domains, found in proteins impact a genome. Domains are autonomous folding units that carry out specific functions and mechanisms in a certain protein. These functions consist of being responsible for interactions in the cell, which…

    The thrifty gene hypothesis postulates that, due to dietary scarcity during human evolution, people are prone to obesity. Their ability to take advantage of rare periods of abundance by storing energy as fat would be advantageous during times of varying food availability, and individuals with greater adipose reserves would be more likely to survive famine. This tendency to store fat, however, would be maladaptive in societies with stable food supplies. This theory has received various criticisms…

    Irrational Fear of Chemicals Genetic engineering could sustain mankind and solve a pile of environmental issues - if only environmentalists would let it. Sometimes, politics gets in the way of logic, and for this reason, there is opposition to the genetic modification of organisms. The accomplishments of those that work on the genetic modification of organisms, especially food crops include the saving of lives, improvement of the environment, and helping solve world hunger. If we give them the…

A disordered family background could either mean the infant grew up in a household that was disorganized or abusive which would be nurture based, or this statement could imply the infant’s family had a history of mental illness, this line if not clearly defined. Maternal psychopathology is nature-based due to the genetic relation and heritability of schizophrenia, but maternal mental illness…

    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.…
