    protein or no protein at all) with a new, ‘fixed’ gene. This treatment only needs to be done once, after which the body naturally reproduces the ‘fixed’ cell (containing the ‘fixed’ gene) which will cure or greatly improve the circumstances of the genetic disorder. The faulty gene still remains within the body, so the disorder might not end up being completely cured, though the circumstances should still improve greatly. This treatment can also work with other medical cases. There are currently two

    programs for genetically engineering fish. One of the scientist’s greatest concern with genetically engineered fish is if they get out. Scientists are afraid that if the engineered fish get out the fish population can grow small because the engineered fish have different genes and genetic codes than regular fish.1 A man named Paul Johnson, founder of the Monterey Fish Market, says, "It's just much too dangerous for the environment, it's too risky." Aqua Bounty says that all genetic fish will be sterile

  • Argumentative Essay On Genetically Modified Food

    1674 Words  | 7 Pages

    modified foods have been debated and researched by scientists, but the question still stands: should genetically modified foods be allowed for consumption? The process of genetic modification involves inserting a gene from bacteria or a virus into an organism where it would normally not be found. The purpose is to alter the genetic code in plants and animals to make them more productive or resistant to pests or farming techniques. Genetically modified organisms, more commonly known as GMOs, have been

  • Essay On Rice Production

    1447 Words  | 6 Pages

    Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Cultivated rice, Oryza sativa, belongs to family poaceae, is the world’s most important staple food crop, for human population. It provided 27 per cent of the dietary energy supply and 20 per cent of dietary protein intake in the developing world. The global production of rice has been estimated to be at the level of 719 million tones, and the area under rice cultivation is 163 million hectares while in India rice production was 152 million tonnes in the 42 million hectare

  • Human Ethics: The Pros And Cons Of Human Cloning

    These cells could then be used for medical purposes, possibly even for growing whole organs. The stem cells cloned from someone with a disease could help researchers understand the disease and develop treatments (learn genetics). Even though, cloning can save lives in the future the topic is still very controversial. It raises a number of ethical, legal, and that need to be taking in consideration. Many organizations believe, using animals for cloning experiments is an

  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Soybean

    1370 Words  | 6 Pages

    Soybean is an important crop, with food, nutritional, industrial, and pharmaceutical uses. Soybean seeds contain about 40% protein and about 20% oil. They are also abundant in physiologically active metabolites such as isoflavones, lecithins, tocopherols and saponins, in addition to functional proteins and are used as an affordable source of foods that promote and maintain health (Sugano 2005). The genomic era is now under way for soybean, as for other many crops. Recently, a soybean genomics database

Combination of my intrinsic tendency to endless journeys and discovery of the pioneer role of cellular and molecular researches and genetic studies in the future of medicine and their potential power of making science fictions become true – as it is not far beyond the reality by CRISPR gene editing technology and human genome project WRITE – , made me to choose cellular and molecular

  • Gene Therapy Lab Report

    765 Words  | 4 Pages

    Gene Therapy: Labs 1-3 Introduction Gene therapy is a current topic of much interest among researchers since often many genetic defects are the result of a single mutation on a gene. Ideally, if this could be fixed, then many genetic diseases could potentially be cured. This fact causes a considerable amount of experimentation to be conducted in this field. Based upon instructions and information found in our provided lab manuals we conducted this experiment. In this experiment, we attempted to

  • Aquilaria Malaccensis Case Study

    malaccenis has the best quality of the fragrant resin. Therefore, due this unidue characteristic, A.malaccesis has been listed in IUCN as an endangered tree. In this study, the aim was to record the morphology of the A.malaccensis and examine the genetic variation among the A.malaccensis. This is because although they are the same species, but some tree had shown variation from the leaves, bark and also wood. Some tree has leaves that small in size while other bigger. The bark colour also appear to
