how does somatic therapy work?
it works by altering the alleles in body cells
1 of 9
how does germ line therapy work
works by altering the allies of sex cells
2 of 9
give a disadvantage of somatic therapy
effect of somatic therapy is not lasting
3 of 9
summarise process of gel electrophoresis
fragments separated according to size when electric current passed through smaller fragments move towards positive electrode as fragments are negatively charged therefore move quicker.
4 of 9
what is a palindromic sequence
a sequence that that is anitiparralel to each other e.g ACGT,TGCA
5 of 9
what is a transgenic organism ?
an organism that contains a gene from another species
6 of 9
what is recombinant DNA?
DNA that is formed from different sources
7 of 9
why is it unethical to use genetic engineering in humans
because it creates a genetic underclass as it allows for alleles like intelligence or eye colour to be expressed which could also cause prejudice
8 of 9
