  • Human Genome Project
    • Definition
      • Genome is the genetic information in an organism
    • Benefits
      • 1) Improved genetic testing for disorders
        • EG:If carrying a faulty gene
      • 2)Location of genes that could increase risk of inheriting diseases
      • 3) New gene therapy treatments
        • Where scientists replace/mend faulty genes that cause disorder
      • 4)Personalised Medicines
        • Only work with a particular gene
      • 5) Improving forensic science
        • EG: DNA Fingerprinting
    • Aims
      • To identify all genes
      • To develop faster methods for sequencing DNA
      • To work out order/sequence of all base pairs
