1. What are two ways that society could deal with future concerns about genetic information?
2. Identify how keeping person health records can help a person cope with hereditary diseases.
A: Keeping personal health records can help a person cope with hereditary diseases as, if this person kept a personal health record, he or she will be able to know of what types of hereditary diseases his or her relatives have experienced and which run in the family. This will also help him or her to know of what to talk to his or her doctor about, and of what to watch out for?
3. Imagine you are a scientist working on the Human Genome Project. What would you say to news reporters about your research?
4. Compare allergy and asthma.
A: Allergies and asthma are both immune disorders. Allergies are caused by an immune response to a harmless substance. This is the same for asthma. When a person’s airways narrow and become swollen due to substances in the air such as pollution, the result is an asthma attack?
1. Wnat does your book say?
Your answers are good.
1. It doesn't state anything of the sort. I don't think there is an exact nor precise answer.
3. I am still uncertain about the answer to this question.
It looks as though you should demonstrate what you've learned about each of these topics.
What do you mean?
I don't understand.
How do you think we should deal with genetic information?
What do you know about the Genome Project?
1. Society could deal with future concerns about genetic information by being educated of what it is, and by asking questions in which regard these concerns?
3. I would say that, due to the Human Genome Project, I am now able to determine the locations of all human genes on the chromosomes and to read the coded instructions in the genes?
3. A better answer is the information in the Applications section of the above web site.
3. I would say the sequencing of the human genome holds benefits for many fields, from molecular medicine to human evolution. The Human Genome Project, through its sequencing of the DNA, can help us understand diseases including: genotyping of specific viruses to direct appropriate treatment; identification of oncogenes and mutations linked to different forms of cancer; the design of medication and more accurate prediction of their effects; advancement in forensic applied sciences; biofuels and other energy applications; agriculture, livestock breeding, bioprocessing; risk assessment; bioarcheology, anthropology, evolution?
