In my opinion, comprehending human genetics is important as it is the basis for understanding various issues attributed to genetics such as how heredity factors cause ill health among human beings. Subsequently, I believe that…

Conducting methodical investigations in human genetics would therefore help scientists or researchers understand how diseases are caused, how they spread, and subsequently form the foundation for the creation of new drugs to treat various medical conditions. There are many reasons why this topic is worth my research. In the contemporary world, the human race has been faced by many health problems many of which have no cure. For instance, there are no known cures for diseases such as HIV/AIDS and chronic cancers. Conducting more research in the field of human genetics can help understand these diseases more and therefore help in the development of new drugs to cure them.
My current comprehension on this topic include basic concepts on heredity particularly how genes are passed from one generation to another. In addition, I have an understanding of the human DNA and its importance in genetic research. Since there has been a lot of advancement in the field of human genetics, one of the issues this research would focus on include the contributions of modern technology in genetic research, and the degree of genetic differences in human beings, as well its significance. Subsequently, how genetics cause ill health among individuals would also be discussed in the research.

Some researchers support the argument that nature is responsible for the makeup of an individual’s behavioral patterns which can be modified through interaction with society. They suggest that human beings are not happy or sad because of their environment but individuals are different from each other because of their genetic makeup granted to them by their parents.
D). In concurrence with Lykken’s report, it is worth exemplifying that autism came into existence way before 1943. Psychologists previously deliberated that for one to be a genius, he had to have high general intelligence. They measured the intelligence level by using astuteness quotient test also known as IQ test.
A genetic factor that has in recent years become a subject of raging debate in education is 'intelligence quotient' (IQ). In an effort to give race a value for differentiating humans the use of intelligence tests has been introduced. In the United States, during World War I, the military conscripts were put through intelligence tests, which revealed that blacks were at an average 15 points below the level of whites.
One would assume that Bob's father would be DD, with no gene for the disease. However, if his mother was Dd, and his father was DD, there is no probable chance or explanation for how Bob contracted the disease. The only possibility is that somehow Bob's father has the recessive trait and that got passed with the recessive trait from his mother to make Bob dd.
ant trait) and the other that is a short plant (recessive trait) is expected to produce an F1 (first) generation of plants that are al tall because the allele of tallness would dominant to shortness in the offspring produced. However, all plants produced in F1 generation would
Neoplasm is defined by a British oncologist Willis as “Abnormal mass of tissue, the growth of which exceeds and is uncoordinated with that of the normal tissue and persists in the same excessive manner after cessation of the stimuli which evoked the
The modification enables the plants and animals to become stronger and more resistant to diseases. However, recently, scientists have started modifying the genes of human beings. The process gives rise to human beings who have similar genetic make-ups in their bodies. This
