    My Genes made me do it! Consider the Genetic Influences on Criminal Behaviour. My Genes made me do it! Consider the Genetic Influences on Criminal Behaviour. A gene is a sequence on DNA that has a specific region on the chromosome‚ which determines a particular characteristic in an organism. For many years it has been thought that there are specific genes responsible for certain behaviour and so there is a gene for criminal behaviour. In the first half of the twentieth century

  • Gene Therapy

    Gene Therapy What is it? If genes don’t produce the right protein or don’t produce it correctly a person can have a genetic disorder. Gene therapy is an experimental technique that involves the transfer of a working copy of a gene into a cell to repair or replace a faulty gene so it is able to produce functioning proteins again. There are several approaches. The most common one is to insert a normal gene to replace the non-functional gene. Another approach is to swap a non-functional

  • Gene Mutations.

    A gene is a long sequence of nucleotides on a DNA molecule. A mutation is a change in the amount of an organism’s genetic material and when a change in genotype produces a change in phenotype‚ the individual affected is said to be a mutant. A gene mutation involves a change in one or more of the nucleotides in a strand of DNA. The sequence of nucleotides in a gene controls the order in which amino acids are made into a protein‚ therefore if the sequence of nucleotides in a gene is altered by a mutation

  • Gene Manipulation

    such as gene manipulation‚ cloning‚ in vitro fertilization and fetal tissue implants. To this day‚ scientists are researching and developing ways to "design" their children by selecting their sex‚ height‚ intelligence‚ and color of eyes. People question the morality of gene manipulation. Is it right to "design" our children? What are the consequences? The practice of gene manipulation is seen as Frankenstein-ish‚ but it is solely to benefit all humans with longer and healthier lives. Gene manipulation

    Growth and Development Chapter 1 worksheet on genes Match the sentence with the word below. HUMAN GENETICS In humans‚ all cells (except eggs and sperm) contain 46 chromosomes. This diploid chromosomal number represents two complete (or nearly complete) sets of genetic instructions - one from the egg and the other from the sperm. At fertilization‚ the chromosomes for the same traits pair up (homologous chromosomes) (1)______Allele_____ - genes (Gene - segment of DNA that codes for single protein)

  • The Gene Lab

    The Gene Lab 1. Introduction The purpose of this report is to inform dog breeders of a very common genetic disease known as Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA). The report will also inform buyers of the disease so they are aware of the disorder and they can check to dog’s pedigree for the disease. PRA could affect any dog‚ as a result of this it is recommended that the offspring should be examined by a board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist and screened for the existence of the disorder.

  • Gene Mutations

    GENE MUTATION‚TYPES OF MUTATIONS 1. Gene Mutation A Gene Mutation is defined as an alternation in the sequence of nucleotides in DNA. It can affect a single nucleotide pair or larger gene segments of a chromosome. Mutations cause changes in the genetic code which lead to genetic variation and the potential to develop disease. What causes Gene Mutation? → Gene mutations are most commonly caused as a result of two types of occurrences. 1. Environmental factors Ex) chemicals‚ radiation
