    Horizontal Gene Transmission For centuries, humankind has made improvements to crop plants through selective breeding and hybridization, the controlled pollination of plants. Plant technology is an extension of this traditional plant breeding with one important difference, plant biotechnology allows for the transfer of a greater variety of genetic information in a more precise controlled manner. Since introduction of plant biotechnology, many farmers have planted millions of acres of biotech cor...

With the information he observed he wrote a paper where he described the patterns of inheritance in terms of seven pairs of contrasting tra...
  • Study Animal The Same Gene
    339 words
    Transgenic Organism, plant, animal, or bacteria that has been genetically modified to contain a gene from a different species. The new gene is inherited by offspring in the same way as the organism's own genes. The transgenic condition is achieved by injecting the foreign gene into the fertilized egg or into embryonic cells. The injected gene becomes part of the host cell's deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) within the chromosome and is then inherited by all the cells produced during embryonic developm...
  • Gene Therapy
    331 words
    Now that scientists have identified the various genes that cause numerous disorders, doctors can test individuals for some of these disorders. For example, by analyzing a blood sample. Genetic tests are available for a growing number of diseases including hemophilia, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia and Tay-Sachs disease. With rapid advances in genetics, many more tests are becoming available. Chromosomes also can be analyzed under a microscope to see if there are...
  • Dawkins Use Of Metaphors
    1,176 words
    People have always wondered how life evolved on Earth. Richard Dawkins' book The Selfish Gene and James Lovelock's book The Ages of Gaia attempt to shed some light on this debate. Dawkins' presents a reductionist point of view in that he argues that evolution takes place entirely through the effects of natural selection on the survival of selfish genes. Lovelock, on the contrary, provides a holistic view of evolution and argues that the entire earth evolves as a super-organism where the biota co...
  • Earth's First Organisms
    639 words
    In his article, The First Organisms, A.G. Cairns-Smith states to the reader about the original idea of how organisms first appeared on Earth. The idea says that before organisms roamed the Earth, various chemicals were spontaneously formed first. These chemicals served as the building blocks of the first organisms that eventually evolved into the organisms here today. Many biochemists have been testing this theory by conducting various experiments. By simulating an atmosphere that supposedly res...
  • Individual Organism's Hereditary Material
    1,888 words
    What is Heredity? Research Essay on Heredity heredity {hur-ed'-i-tee} Heredity is the transmission from one generation to the next of factors that determine the traits of offspring. Although successful breeding of plants and animals was practiced by humans long before modern civilizations were established, there is no evidence that these early people understood the nature of hereditary factors or how they are transmitted through reproduction. EARLY HISTORY One of the early Greek philosophers, Py...
