A color blind test
Human insulin can be produced by _______, which introduces DNA from one organism into a _______. (1 point)
gene therapy; virus

genetic engineering; vaccine
recombinant DNA; bacterium
Which of these is used to improve the phenotype of plants? (1 point)
Which is a genetic disorder that gene therapy may correct? (1 point)
type I diabetes
My answers are:
1. Gene Therapy
2. recombinant DNA; bacterium
Was I correct?

1 and 2, yes
3 and 4, no
Improving phenotype has to due with reproduction and offspring. Not regular mitotic division. Selective breeding is method used to get desired traits by controlling reproduction.
AIDS is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome which is passed from person to person generally via blood. Thus, it is not a disease that gene therapy could correct. The question asks for a genetic disorder which rules out tetanus (caused by a bacteria) and AIDS (caused by a virus). Type I diabetes is a bit deceptive...it is strongly genetic, but cystic fibrosis is definitely the answer. So Cystic fibrosis.

Thank you Anonymous. Hey what grade are you in? 7th?

So is it cystic fibrosis? for number 4?

I am a senior in college, biochemistry is my major quite a bit further than 7th, but if this is the stuff you get taught in 7th grade then you go to a pretty good school.
Cystic fibrosis is what I would pick for number 4.

smart, she is not stupid. Maybe you need to think before you say.
This girl, you did a very good job. :-)

Smart isn't smart he's just rude. This girl its a TEST not a work with people to find the answer exercise. This is cheating, its a good thing you're not leaving your name or connections would find you and you'd be in trouble. I go to ORCA :3

All of the people here are cheating, you wouldn't find this if you didn't look.
