Understanding the genetic make-up of every individual is essential from the earlier stages of life since a great number of human diseases are as a result of genetic disorders ranging from inheritance to acquired types. Therefore, identifying these disorders helps restraint…

Introduction

When conducting genetic experiments, ethical norms and principals should not be violated and opposed as in the case of Jeremy Rifkin who argues that human gene should not be studied. Informed consent, for instance, should always be considered for it to be a personal decision when conducting the ...

Genetic technology
Specifically, this research study seeks to identify a means by which an unambiguous distinction is made between biotechnologies and eugenics, and how the inherent powers associated with genetics information should be exercised and by whom. This research study will therefore present arguments on the strengths, limits, and dangers of liberal biotechnologies from a perspective that Jurgen Habermas…
Human Genetic Engineering
The diseases which were termed as incurable have been treated and overcome through scientific research and experimentation. The field of genetic engineering itself, and the discoveries made under its umbrella are the part of the same journey and process. This trend has been in business for the last few decades, but is being materialized in true sense only now. Human Genetic Engineering is a fruit…
Genetic analysis and retionblastoma
The current available methods of treating and managing retinoblastoma are; chemoreduction, thermotherapy, cryotherapy, radiotherapy, external beam radiotherapy, enucleation and systematic chemotherapy. Chemoreduction reduces the volume of the tumor thus allowing for therapeutic measures, which are more focused and less damaging (Shields, L. Carol and Jerry, A. Shields, 2002). Chemoreduction is…
Molecular Genetic Diagnostics for Birt-Hogg-Dube Syndrome
Nonetheless, molecular diagnosis provides a conclusive diagnosis because it determines whether there is genetic mutation within the FLCN gene in the DNA of individuals who demonstrate clinical symptoms of BHD. Families which are affected by BHD are put under surveillance during molecular studies which aids in genetic counseling. This report will present the molecular and genetic diagnosis of BHD…
The Pros and Cons of Nutritional genetic engineering
But what exactly are genetics and genetic engineering? Genetics is defined as the study of biologically inherited traits (Hartl 1). These would also include traits that are influenced by the environment. The fundamental concept of genetics is that the traits of the offspring are inherited in combination from the parents, and by means of reproduction, such characteristics are passed down from…
alcohol, cardiovascular disease and genetic modification
Thus, although the effects were inconclusive among lifetime infrequent drinkers, among former drinkers and among heavy drinkers, alcohol consumption seemed to decrease the risk of CVD among those who drink light to moderate amounts of alcohol. Despite the promise of alcohol consumption in the protection against CVD, future studies are derailed by the difficulty in conducting studies on the effects…
