The human cell is the basic unit of our being. Every complex organism, including humans, consists of coordinated systems working together to achieve life. The basis of every part of every system is the cell. Similar cells come together to make tissues. Tissues come together...
Have Breakthroughs in Dna Research Led to more Harm than Good
By: Steve Lussing
As with any complicated field of study, there is a learning curve. Where genetic engineering is concerned, that curve is very steep. It would be wrong to say that no harm has been done during ongoing DNA research but that does not mean that such...

DNA comes in two forms in the human body, the standard DNA (in cell nuclei), that we hear the most about relates directly to our parents and grandparents, and mitochondrial DNA that is inherited only through the maternal line.Mitochondrial DNA is the DNA found...

What is cloning exactly? When the media talks about it it refers mainly to reproductive cloning. But, there are different types of cloning than what is presented in the news. There is more to cloning than just the reproduction of the genetic twin of some...

"Cloning." When most people hear this term they think of some science fiction book or movie where scientists clone a human successfully. When I first started looking up information about cloning, topics came up about Star Wars and other science fiction movies that have...
Have Breakthroughs in Dna Research Led to more Harm than Good
By: Paula Testerman
My reasons for writing to this side of the debate are personal and professional, but mostly personal. I believe that, without DNA research, there wouldn't be the capabilities seen today in the medical and criminal justice worlds. These are two areas out of many in...

Imagine sitting in a doctors office and designing, up front, exactly what your kid will be like. Like picking out options for a new car. Lessee, I don't like my chin. so let's make sure she gets, oh, I don;t know, Madonna's. Sure she...

Many issues are raised when arguing about genetic engineering, so let me be clear about what I'm referring to:Genetic engineering is the direct manipulation of the genetic contents (the DNA) of cells, referred top as genetic modification or GM. Hopefully this is being done with...

Cloning is a highly controversial topic these days. Many scientists consider cloning a vital step in the advancement of medicine. And then there are many others that are opposed to cloning because of the moral ramifications.The real reason that cloning is explored is because...

Before we can consider the ethical problems related to the cloning of animals or humans we need to define what we actually mean by that. The presumption is that a clone is the exact genetical double of the donor; in reality it is unlikely that...
