  • Persuasive Essay About Cloning

    Many people think that animals going extinct will not affect the human race because it is not the humans that are going extinct.

That would benefit them since they have a food source, and it will benefit humans because they are no longer in harm's way since the smaller animal is no longer in our area.

  • Differences Between Genetic Mutations And Natural Selection

    Mutations are changes in the genetic code which is the only way through which new genetic material and variations can be obtained. Mutations further include chromosomal mutations which is necessary for various variations. Genetic Drift can be defined as how the changes that occur randomly in the frequency of alleles which impact populations of many species. These also lead to effects such as bottle neck and founders effect. Natural Selection revolves around the concept of fitness which…
