    The field of genetics is an interesting concept to comprehend because it beholds answers to why some people are born with genetic birth defects, such as: down syndrome, heart defects, neural tube defects and blood disorders (Miranda Hitti, 2006). Not only that, but it accounts for why millions of people die because of these defects and it is mainly due to the cause of having a genetic mix up (Miranda Hitti, 2006). This is where the human genome project comes to the rescue. The human genome project has a goal of achieving an "accurate sequence of the 3 billion DNA base pairs that make up the human genome and to find all of the estimated 20,000 to 25,000 human genes." (GHR, 2015). With this information, our medical technology can advance significantly…

    7. Identify one finding from the Human Genome Project and discuss how it might impact our understanding of human behavior. One finding from the Human Genome Project includes the identification of “approximately 200 disease-related genes” (Ginsberg, Nackerud & Larrison, 2004, p. 118). This finding impacts our understanding of human behavior as it gives a better biological understanding of these diseases and it helps social workers to be better advocates for those who have these diseases. Our…

    Introduction The Human Genome Project was a research program that began in 1990 and took 13 years to complete (1). The project was originally funded by the US Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health. Additionally, many other countries participated, including the UK, Canada, Japan, France, and Germany (1). The overall aim of the Human Genome Project was to completely understand and map out every human gene, the genome (2). The other goals of the program were to determine the…

    The Human Genome Project has been a hot button topic since the initial draft was created in 1999. The creation of gene manipulation has raised a multitude of complex questions, and it leaves many more unanswered. Henry Greely, the director of the center of law and biosciences, thinks that the human race is not mentally equipped enough to begin experimentation on the Human Genome in his article “Legal, Ethical, and Social Issues in Human Genome Research”. Johannes Borgstein, agrees with him in…
