-Using the 4-9-4 estimates, the total kcal intake for these nutrients was 1470 kcal
-carbohydrate kcals: 160 grams of carbohydrates x 4 = 640 kcals
-fat kcals: 70 grams of fat x 9 = 630 kcals
-protein kcals: 50 grams of protein x 4 = 200 kcals
-The percent of energy derived from fat was 42.9%
-630 kcals from fat/1470 total kcals x 100 = 42.9%
-The percent of energy derived from carbohydrates was 43.5%
-640 kcals from carbohydrates/1470 total kcals x 100 = 43.5%

    The Human Genome Project (HGP) is a project undertaken with a goal to understand the genetic make-up of the human species by determining the DNA sequence of the human genome and the genome of a few model organisms. The project began in 1990 and, by some definitions, it was completed in 2003. It was one of the biggest investigational projects in the history of science. The mapping of the human genes was an important step in the development of medicines and other aspects of health care. Most of the…

    The Human Genome Project The Human Genome Project was established to identify the genes that make us who we are. It is a worldwide research effort with the goal of analysing the structure and to identify all the approximate 20,000-25,000 genes of human DNA and determining the location of the estimated 100,000 human genes. The DNA of a set of model organisms will be studied to provide the information necessary for understanding the functioning of the human genome and improve tools for data analysis…

    Human Genome Project The Human Genome controls from the eye and skin color to the potential for developing disease. Humans display remarkable and endless variety which is controlled by the Human Genome. Human Genome is the complete “instruction manual” found in the nucleus of all cells that is used to define a specific organism. Decoding and understanding these instructions is the goal of the Human Genome Project (HGP). This project began in 1990, which was coordinated by the United States department…

    The Diary of the Human Genome and Its Breakthrough What is our human genome? Our human genome is what makes us who we are. Many people might find its role in our human body as a miniscule one, but it is rather one of a great role consisting of all the genetic information in a single human being. What makes the human genome unique and amazing is its function and structure. The human genome also has its complications, these are genetic mutations creating genetic disorders that affect millions. With…

    About the human genome Today, I’d like to talk about the human genome. What is the genome? According to scientists, all of our characteristics are determined by our genes. And the genome is a complete set of genes. So I think it is useful to know something more about the genome. Genetic science has developed rapidly in recent decades. The most important result is the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA. All the secrets of life are hidden in them. Let’s have a look at this picture.…
