What are the human genome project, cloning, DNA fingerprinting, genetic engineering, and stem cells? What are some pros and cons of each issue?
Here are Discussion questions.
#1 At one time, organisms were only the size of one cell; they divided and developed into the individuals like humans that are made of trillions of cells. Every cell in the human body received a copy of an original nucleus with the exact same genes and chromosomes. All of the cells in the body evolved from a single cell. How do you think the genes could be responsible for cellular differences? CHAPTER 11 OF THE TEXT BOOK.
#2 What are the human genome project, cloning, DNA fingerprinting, genetic engineering, and stem cells? What are some pros and cons of each issue? CHAPTER 12 OF THE TEXT BOOK.
#3 Someone you know would like to improve his or her appearance by visiting a tanning salon. What are the dangers of going to a tanning salon? How would you explain those dangers? How does going to a tanning salon relate to the structure and function of DNA? CHAPTER 13 OF THE TEXT BOOK.
#4 DISCUSSION ON DNA CHAPTER 14
#5 Review the Cell division resources from Khan Academy.
Consider the following questions as you review the resource:
How does the process of meiosis work? How does it contribute to genetic variation in humans?
What is the purpose of DNA? How does it function in the process of cell division?
Note. All Khan Academy content is available for free at www.khanacademy.org PLEASE USE 50 WORDS ON #1 TO 4 DISCUSSION AND THE # 5 USE 75 WORDS. I\’M PAYING FOR 1 PAGE. Thank you.
