MuD Bacteriophage & Operon in Gene Fusion : 10 page paper. Despite the fact that gene fusion has been with us for years, there is still significant opposition in the popular press to "genetic engineering." Myriad agents are used to accomplish delivery of genetic factors to specific gene sites, many of which are written of extensively in the literature. One that is not written of quite as much as the others is the MuD bacteriophage. Despite all the work that has been done in gene fusion and gene mapping, the ultimate foreseeable value lies not in science-fiction tales of cloning, but rather in understanding some of the diseases with which gene fusion could be either alleviated or cured. Bibliography lists 8 sources. Mudphage.wps

Genetic Expression in Cancer : A 12 page paper discussing the actions and implications of genes p53 and pRB, and the enzyme telomerase in the control of cancer. Genes p53 and pRB are known to be tumor suppressor genes, inhibiting the ability of cancerous cells to thrive. Over half of all cancers reveal that the p53 gene has either been disabled or has been dismantled at the cellular level. Telomerase is an enzyme found most abundantly in association with cancerous conditions, preventing the shortening of chromosomal "endcaps," telomeres, that happens in normal cell growth and division. The enzyme prevents the shortening of the telomeres, prolonging the life of the cell. Telomerase provides the best indicator of cancerous conditions present and is measurable before there are any symptoms at all. Bibliography lists 10 sources. Gexpress.wps

Is There a Cancer Gene ? : 7 pages in length. A comprehensive, analytical review of scientific literature positing that cancer probability may be passed down genetically. Writer summarizes existing research and provides some personal opinion. 4 sources listed in bibliography. Cancerar.wps

An Argument Against Involuntary Sterilization : A thorough 12 page analysis of the "pros" and "cons" of involuntary sterilization in which the writer argues against such a crude form of control. Various examples of biased race-engineering and incomprehensible experimentation are given to illustrate points made. Politics and various cultures are explored as well. Bibliography lists 5+ sources. Invoster.wps

The Advantages Of Bioengineering : 6 pages in length. Despite the throngs of critics who oppose the use of bioengineering in current endeavors, this scientific strategy has only begun to open doors that have otherwise never before been accessible. There are myriad possibilities for people's lives to become enhanced in ways that have not ever existed; researchers have only just applied the very tip of what technological mastery they have uncovered. The writer discusses how rapid advances in bioengineering not only represent humanity's ongoing quest for a more pleasurable existence, but also how it symbolizes the ability to provide where nature leaves off. Bibliography lists 5 sources. TLCBioEn.wps

The World’s First Test Tube Baby : A 7 page paper on the test tube baby and how the project has since contributed to the modern science of cloning and DNA technology. The paper discusses the various methods for in vitro fertilization and how this has led to the development of life-saving medicines and the recent birth of the Kansas City septuplets. The paper also discusses some of the ethical objections. Bibliography lists 8 sources. Testube.wps

Embryonic Research, Genetic Engineering, & Cloning : A 8 page exploration of the controversy of embryonic research as it pertains to genetic engineering and cloning. Presents both positive and negative aspects of the practice and concludes that we need to determine definition of such terms as "desirable" and "undesirable" and decide how these definitions fit into our own ethics and morals. Bibliography lists 6 sources. Embclone.wps

Ethics of Genetic Engineering Through The Eyes of Aristotle : Aristotle believed that an absolute moral standard was not possible because morality is determined by behavior and outcome and these are governed by the individual and the choices made by that individual. The individual is by definition unique, which foregoes that each choice and outcome is unique. The concept of Plato's "good" is seen in terms of the action and the result of the action, rather than a predetermined, 'a priori', standard. Inasmuch as individuals dwell within a society, there exists an ethical component to community behavior and is grounded on the "purpose" of the behavior: the highest form of community behavior being for the purpose of the 'good' of man. This 4 page paper examines the issue of genetic engineering from the view presented by Aristotle in the Nicomachean Ethics. Bibliography lists 2 sources. Genengin.wps

Cloning : 6 pages. The author discusses the cloning of humans and the possible effects which could occur, if humans were cloned. Bibliography lists 5 sources. Clissu.wps

Human Cloning / Why It Is Beneficial : 5 pages in length. The concept of human cloning is, perhaps, the most controversial topic of the twentieth century. With steadfast opinions on both sides of the issue, the idea of creating scientifically produced people has some of the population up in arms with such sacrilege, while others deem this marvel of modern technology the missing link to what could help make an ailing human race whole again. The writer takes the position that human cloning is beneficial by addressing the positive aspects. Bibliography lists 3 sources. Clonben.wps

To Clone or Not to Clone ? A Look at Biotechnology : This 5 page report briefly examines some of the controversies raised on the subject of cloning. The body of evidence reported and the practical application of scientific products supports the value of biotechnology, including cloning. Among the many reasons to support arguments in favor of cloning is the idea that DNA probe systems will revolutionize analysis of raw materials, ingredients, and finished products for the presence of pathogenic and spoilage organisms, bacterial and fungal toxins, chemical contaminants (i.e., herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals), and biological contaminants. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Clone.wps

The Ethical Downside of Cloning : A 10 page research paper on the negative aspects of human cloning. The writer details the eugenics movement and how it was used in the past by the Nazis and how it relates to current debates on human cloning. In addition, the paper shows the various possible uses and misuses of cloning. Bibliography lists 13 sources. Cloneno.wps

Propaganda For & Against Cloning : An 8 page paper discussing the propaganda used in both support and opposition to cloning. Two documents are reviewed and the elements of propaganda applied by both sides of the issue are discussed. Clonepro.wps

Social Concerns Of Genetic Cloning : A 5 page research paper on the scientific history, "Dolly" technology, and present-day social issues surrounding cloning. The writer presents a quoted "Dolly" technology synopsis, with equal attention given to discussion social issues in the form of specific comments by every day people, scientists, ethnicists, and government representatives. The paper proves that current opinion concerning cloning still resides in the realm of chaos--worldwide. The paper argues that ultimate responsibility to speak up on the issue is up to individuals. Bibliography lists 5 sources. Clone2.wps

The Ethical Controversy of Cloning : A 4 page paper looking at the very controversial topic of cloning a human being from a theological and social standpoint. The paper concludes that the issue is really not one of ethics at all, but of theology, having to do with the nature of the human soul. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Ethclo.wps

Sociobiological Aspects Of Cloning : A 4 page paper on the the application of social Darwinism and later studies to the new cloning process. Points of discussion include fitness of the species, ability to reproduce, and the replication of disease. Bibliography lists 2 sources. Clonebio.wps

Genetic Drift / Quick Change, Quicker Reversal : A 10 page paper that argues in support of science's use of genetic drift over natural selection to make quicker shifts in genetically drifted and naturally selected traits. The paper works from the viewpoint that genetic drift often leads to dominant gene traits and, therefore, extinction, whereas natural selection leads to environmental control by nature and seeks to provide examples throughout history where genetic drift has also resulted in a quicker change that natural selection. Bibliography lists 8 sources. Genetic.DOC

"Disclosure of Hereditary Illness : A Look At How Genetic Testing Is Raising New Legal and Bioethical Questions" : 19 pages in length. A thorough examination of issues concerning forced disclosure of genetic information and the right to privacy. Excellent for those studying genetics and/or medical ethics.

The writer looks at the difficulty medical practitioners face in teaching women how to prevent a condition of this nature and the possibility of there being some genetic foundation for it. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Endometr.wps

Is Homosexuality in the Genes ? : A 12 page paper in which the writer explores homosexuality from a biopyschosocial perspective. Explored are the definitive roots of homosexuality, changing psychiatric opinions over time, and most importantly,-- recent breakthroughs which suggest that people's sexuality may be the result of their genetic predisposition. Numerous examples and statistical data are provided. Bibliography lists 8+ sources. Homogene.wps

Homosexuality Is NOT Genetic / Argument : A 6 page argumentative paper supporting the theory that recent genetic findings cannot displace years of documented support for the behavioral determinants of sexual identification. The writer contends that the many discrepancies in the findings of Hamer and his colleagues leads scientists, sociologists and psychologists to continue to support the concept that homosexuality is determined through behavioral choices, not through genes. Bibliography lists 6 sources. Homosexu.wps

Genetics / Violence : A 7 page argumentative paper proving that violence is hereditary and unless stopped could lead to the demise of the human race. The writer relies on the original thesis and research of Darwin and Mendell, and bases arguments on the genetic discoveries of Han Brunner, et al. and subsequent modern-day researchers who proved how genes are mutated, have traced the regeneration of mutated genes, and have created violent species in laboratories based on the regeneration of mutated genes. Bibliography lists 11 sources. Geneviol.wps

Alzheimer's Disease / Genetic vs. Environmental : A 10 page paper that provides an overview of the two major arguments surrounding Alzheimer's disease and demonstrates increasing support for the genetic theory. Bibliography lists 8 sources. Alzheim.wps

Nazifinl.rtf

Is Alcoholism a Genetic, Hereditary Disease ? - Yes ! : A 7 page research paper arguing quite strongly that alcoholism is, in fact, a hereditary disease linked to our genes. Using the findings of specific studies in books and journals, the writer debunks the myth that alcohol is a social disease and that the only familial influences are those related to peer pressure and modeling. Both sides of the argument are weighed, assessed, and the ultimately conclusion that alcoholism is hereditary-- is reached. Bibliography lists 10 sources. Alcohere.wps

Discusses differences in the inner ear, the jaw, and the brain and provides possible reasons for the divergent evolutionary paths. Bibliography lists 10 sources. Evolmeso.wps

Climate & Geographic Change Between The Late Triassic & Jurassic Periods : A 7 page paper that discusses these changes in light of the disappearance of the dinosaur. The writer suggests that although this is still a mystery (unknowable fact), the geographic changes (tectonic plate theory, sea-floor theory) and climate changes from warm, moist climate to boreal at the end of the era are believed to have contributed to the demise of the dinosaur. Dinosaur groups and extinction are also considered within these definitions. Bibliography lists 6 sources. Mesozoic.wps
