  • Aurora's Functional Genomics Technology
    1,133 words
    Aurora Biosciences Corp. (ABSC) April 21, 2000 This is one of those picket and shovel companies in the Biotechnology sector. ABSC designs and develops drug discovery technologies and services. Aurora Biosciences is developing a system using fluorescent assay technologies and ultra-high-throughput screening systems (UH TSS) to allow researchers to overcome many limitations of traditional drug discovery processes. Aurora's functional genomics technology can successfully analyze over half a billion...
  • Human Genome Project Sequence Data
    1,371 words
    What is the Human Genome Project The Human Genome Project (HGP) is an international research program designed to construct detailed genetic and physical maps of the human genome, to determine the complete nucleotide sequence of human DNA, to localize the estimated 80,000 genes within the human genome, and to perform similar analyses on the genomes of several other organisms used extensively in research laboratories as model systems. This project is estimated to take 15 years to complete from Oct...
  • Human Genome
    643 words
    Spanning the past 100 years, the world of medical science has reached what many see to be the pinnacle of its research. It is estimated that in the next two years they will have achieved their goal of deciphering the human genome. It is crazy to think about what could happen in the next ten years, but there are a few major issues that have to be addressed when considering if it is immoral or not. Genome engineering could mean the end of disease around the world. The question of it playing GOD or...
  • Entire Genome Sequences
    1,750 words
    Genome Sequencing Microbiology has entered the realm of genome sequencing. This biological revolution is opening up new dimensions in our view of life. In 1995, a report on the entire DNA sequence for the genome of the bacteria Haemophilus influenzae was published. Although the genomes for a number of viruses had been completed before this, H. influenzae was the first free-living organism to have it's genome sequenced, and as such, this report remains a biological milestone. Since then, the enti...
  • Completion Of The Human Genome Project

    Marshall, Elizabeth L. The Human Genome Project: Cracking The Code Within Us. New York, New York: Franklin Watts, 1996.1-128. Elizabeth L. Marshall was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She grew up in areas of southern California, and in parts of New York City. She lives in Columbus, Ohio, and is currently married and has two daughters. She attended and graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.A. in English. She then graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Master of Fine Arts ...
  • Human Genome Project
    982 words
    The Human Genome Project The Human Genome Project is a worldwide research effort with the goal of analyzing the structure of human DNA and determining the location of the estimated 100,000 human genes. The DNA of a set of model organisms will be studied to provide the information necessary for understanding the functioning of the human genome. The information gathered by the human genome project is expected to be the source book for biomedical science in the twenty-first century and will be of g...
  • Human Genome Project And Dna
    1,510 words
    GENOME PROJECT Adam and Eve were doomed for trying to be like god, this is the same damnation mankind is headed to. Everyone's dream is to have absolute power and control of everything. The genome project and DNA engineering gives man the ability to create life and life to his specific needs of likes. So how good is too good? Man's ability to make life or create perfect human beings so they can be in a state of Utopia will disturb the balance of nature. Every individual, every child born on eart...
  • Issue Concerning Genetic Testing And Insurance Companies
    1,629 words
    The Human Genome Project has been marked by criticism since the projects initiation in the late 1980's. The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international, combined research program, which sought to completely map and understand the human genome and to identify all genes present in it. The two parties involved in deciphering the human genome were the privately funded Celera Genomics and the publicly funded Human Genome Project (Celera was set up eight years after HGP commenced). The two rivals ...
  • New Information From The Human Genome Project
    1,356 words
    Morality and the Human Genome Project Does the Human Genome Project affect the moral standards of society? Can the information produced by it become a beneficial asset or a moral evil? For example, in a genetic race or class distinction the use of the X chromosome markers can be used for the identification of a persons ethnicity or class (Murphy, 34). A seemingly harmless collection of information from the advancement of the Human Genome Project. But, lets assume this information is used to expl...
  • Human Genome Project A Genome
    827 words
    Human Genome Project A genome is defined as the complete collection of an organisms genetic material. The human genome is composed of about 50,000 to 100,000 genes located on 23 pairs of chromosomes in a human cell. It is said that a single human chromosome may contain more than 250 million DNA base pairs, and it is estimated that the entire human genome consists of about 3 billion base pairs. The DNA is gathered through blood samples taken from many different people. Though each person has a un...
  • Genomics Industry
    773 words
    The Impact of Genomics on the World's Economy Genomics, the science of manipulating, building, studying, and designing molecules, is going to change the face of the world's economy as we know it. Companies are rushing to adapt to the rapidly changing economic environment as new discoveries are being made in this field. Genomics has the potential to affect all aspects of every sort of industry. Since genomics deals with things on a molecular level, its technology can be applied to everything, mos...
  • Curious Dr James Watson
    888 words
    Dr. James Watson, PhD The following is an excerpt from an interview with Dr. James Watson that took place at the Understanding What You Really Are Made of conference at the University of Lone Oak in 1994. Dr. James Watson co-discovered the structure of DNA with Dr. Francis Crick. Excerpted from the conference transcripts with permission of the University of Lone Oak. Interviewer: Please give us a few facts about your personal history, your life growing up before we begin the questions so we may ...
  • Cloning And The Human Genome Project
    1,346 words
    The Human Genome Project will create more harm than good for Human Welfare. 'Doctors will be able to spot genetic mutation that signal the approach not only of rare hereditary diseases, but also the common killers, including breast cancer, heart disease and diabetes- and defeat them. ' (Collins 1994). Geneticists have set the date for this breakthrough at 10 years. We are noe at the stage where we have almost finished completely mapping the Human Genome. But what is the Human Genome, and why is ...
