DNA telepathy: Genes recognize base pair sequence homology
By: Tami Port MS
A new study demonstrates that genes recognize other genes that have similar base pair sequences, a discovery that can help us understand DNA repair and genetic diversity.* Telepathic Genes *New research published in the January issue of the Journal of Physical Chemistry suggests that...
Animal or Human Cloning
By: Dan Creamer - 47733
The ethical questions surrounding human cloning are many and complex. Some people come at the issue from a religious perspective because the state of the art for embryonic cloning still destroys the embryo. Others worry about the science being used for nefarious purposes. The fear...
Dominant human genetic traits: Mid-digital hair, hand clasping and bent little finger
By: Tami Port MS
The one of the best ways to learn about genetics is to understand heredity first hand, by examining actual examples of the dominant and recessive traits that you possess. Here we will explore the characteristics of mid-digital hair, hand clasping, and bent little finger. Before...
Dominant human genetic traits: Facial dimples, chin cleft and free earlobes
By: Tami Port MS
The one of the best ways to learn about genetics is to understand heredity first hand, by examining actual examples of the dominant and recessive traits that you possess. Here we will explore the characteristics of facial dimples, chin cleft and free earlobes. Before delving...
How scanning the human genome uncovers genes linked to disease
By: Tami Port MS
Several years ago, the human genome was decoded. This enormous project identified the general order, or sequence, of the building blocks of human DNA. Since that time, DNA scanning technology has significantly advanced our understanding of the relationship between genes and disease. * What Is...
Fossil viruses: Viral genes in the human genome
By: Tami Port MS
The genetic blueprint of every human contains a significant amount of DNA that is not actually human. Dormant fossil viruses have infiltrated our genome. Estimates range from 3 to 8 % of the human genome as being comprised of sections of viral DNA. These and...
Is Cloning Pets a Prelude to Human Cloning
By: Jules Lister
You have to admire the amazing ingenuity and imagination of the Human race which keeps driving us forward to continually find answers to problems that keep presenting themselves. Look at all the things it has allowed us to create and how far we have come...
Would a granddaughter display more genetically inherited traits of their grandmother than their mother would?
By: Renee Morgan
Granddaughters will sometimes show more genetically inherited traits of their grandmother than their mothers, in many families across the world. The funny part is that it is either grandmother, not just the mother's mom. My dad has three daughters with my mother, three out...
Is Cloning our Pets a Slippery Slope to Human Cloning
By: Tracie Boardman
Is cloning our pets a slippery slope to human cloning? No, not any more than allowing legal adoptions will cause women to sell their babies for money. The slippery slope argument states that if there is an exception made to a rule, then the rule...
Is Cloning our Pets a Slippery Slope to Human Cloning
By: Beatrice Okorie
People who have their pets clone are sending a subliminal message to the scientific world by giving their approval to animal experimentations. Having anything clone will not raise it from the dead. No animal is the same and no human being is the same...
