2. What is eugenics?

  • Encouraging the use of stem cells instead of embryo cloning
  • Encouraging people to use pre natal and post natal screening
  • Encouraging desirable traits and selective breeding of humans
  • Encouraging gene therapy

3. What allows for variation within the genetic fingerprint of individuals

  • The number of chromosomes an individual has
  • The number of repeated exons in the fingerprint
  • The number of repeated introns between exons
  • The total number of exons

4. Why is the DNA sample cooled from 70 degrees to 55 degrees?

  • Allows DNA polymerase to add free nucleotides to make a new molecule of DNA
  • Allows primers to attach to DNA strands and mark where DNA polymerase attaches
  • Allows the hydrogen bonds between the two strands of the DNA to break causing them to separate
  • To allow reverse transcriptase to convert RNA to DNA

5. What is gene therapy?

  • Insertion of extra chromosomes to counteract non functional genes
  • Insertion of functional DNA to counteract a non functional gene
  • Removal of non functional DNA to prevent further issues
  • Removal of functional DNA to be cloned
