Human Genome Project

Morality and the Human Genome Project Does the Human Genome Project affect the moral standards of society? Can the information produced by it become a beneficial asset or a moral evil? For example, in a genetic race or class distinction the use of the X chromosome markers can be used for the identification of a persons ethnicity or class (Murphy,34). A seemingly harmless collection of information from the advancement of the Human Genome Project. But, lets assume this information is used to explore...

The Human Genome Project

The Human Genome Project The Human Genome Project is a worldwide research effort with the goal of analyzing the structure 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. The information gathered by the human genome project is expected to be the source book for biomedical science in the twenty-first century and will be of...

The Effects of the Human Genome Project on Society

the mapping of the human genome on society? Human genetics has remained a mysterious and spotty subject throughout history. The farther the human race advances, the more it learns and the more details it is able to clarify. Now, man has come to create a method of mapping out the complex and massive information stored within himself in order to better understand and further the health and lives of those around him. In the following text is explained the Human Genome Project, what it is and what...

The Human Genome Project (Hgp) and Bioinformatics

The Human Genome Project (HGP) and bioinformatics Initiated in October 1990 and completed in April 2003, the Human Genome Project (HGP) was a 13-year project coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health. Its goals were to identify all the approximately 25,000-30,000 genes in the human genome, to determine the sequences of the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up the human genome, to store the information that resulted from the project in databases,...

The Diary of the Human Genome

 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...

Limitations of Human Genome Project : Analyzed Using a Christian Worldview

Limitations of the Human Genome Project "I would say that the Human Genome Project is probably more significant than splitting the atom or going to the moon." (Francis Collins) The human genome project, started in 1988, has mapped all the genes in the human body and sequenced them. Researchers are now working on understanding the function of all the genes. This exciting new development in biology has opened up whole new areas in the genetic world. The Human Genome Project was an enormous accomplishment...

Frankenstein and Human Cloning

Devanta Ebison English IV - Final Project Ms. Lopez January 15, 2013 “Frankenstein and Human Cloning” What is life? What defines a person? Do you believe humans should have the right to create life? Are there any consequences? In 1831 Mary Shelly wrote Frankenstein or; The Modern Prometheus, a magnificent depiction of a man taking up God’s role of creator of life. Victor wanted to achieve biological immortality. Yet, within the instance of success Victor outright rejected his creation...

Personal Genomes for Drug Discovery

What are the implications of personal genomes for drug discovery and development ? In the past decade, increasing amounts of dollars have been spent on drug development yet the amount of new drugs entering the market per year remains the same. Furthermore with 200 billion dollars of patents expiring in the past four years (Witty, 2010), innovative pharmaceutical companies will need to look at new approaches to discover drugs. With the human genome being sequenced in 2003, a new field of science...

Kantian Ethics concerning human Cloning.

of the host egg. The egg then forms an embryo and matures into the same exact "copy", at least genetically, as the original organism. Already done on mammals, cloning is something that can be extended to utilize humans as subjects. In the future it will be wholly possible to create human clones to serve whatever purpose they were conceived for. However, presently there are numerous ethical issues surrounding cloning and there are problems about the implications of the use of cloning for the purpose...

fluorescent agent can help identify a recombinant cell with a gene of interest b.) Using an AMP dish will only allow the cell carrying a gene of interest to grow 6. A genomic library contains genomic DNA sequences and represents the entire genome of the organism. A cDNA library contains sequences found in a mRNA population from a particular tissue and represents only those genes expressed in that tissue. 7. An expression vector is a plasmid that is used to introduce a specific gene into...
