1 Scientific Task Concept: Paternity Testing Historical Event: Storm of the Century By: Victoria Purser Western Governors University 28 August 2012 1 What is Paternity When a child is born and esting? about his/her paternity Tthere is question order to determine (referring to father) testing can be done in paternity at approximately 99.9% In decades past this could not be defined at that the same approximation as the methodology and understanding of the human composition has progressed. At the current level of understanding and testing the entire genetic sequencing is used to compare and contrast the genetic materials/makeup from both the mother and the father. http://youtu.be/AhnTT6-Jgcg http://www.dnacenter.com/sciencetechnology/dna-history.html 2 Paternity Testing Then and Now Present Day- Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) 99.9% accuracy and higher DNA, found in all cells of the body, is a unique combination of DNA from both mother and father. DNA test results have much faster processing times than previous paternity testing methods Extensive use of PCR for DNA testing has allowed scientist to form a database for accurate DNA analysis. This database enables paternity testing via PCR to have http://www.dnacenter.com/sciencehighest power of exclusion. technology/dna-history.html 3 How Paternity Testing has impacted the world. Fathers are able to determine their offspring by 99.9% Paternity testing meant there was a much higher incentive for men to avoid or take more care to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Creating financial, emotional, and long term responsibility for their offspring Genetic traits or characteristics can be identified and addressed. Proves siblingship, Long lost or unknown siblings can be reunited with testing. Adoptive children can find and determine if the persons located are their natural parents. Research genealogy, depiction of actual family linage for property rights. 4 Historical Event: Storm of the Century In March of 1993 the United States suffered a series of climatic weather events that changed the way that forecasters advised and prepared the public for massive weather events. Within two days These weather patterns created blizzards, tornados, excessive high winds, and record low temperatures across the United States. First Time in History Instrumentation used in forecasting by the National Weather Service Capability of accurately predicting the turbulent weather American people given a 5 day in advanced notification The merging of technology, climate monitoring, and communication methods had given the people advanced warning of the impeding weather. Notification to air transportation, ground transportation, medical, and Law enforcement prepare for the upcoming weather conditions. States of emergency, in the declared upper portion of the United States before climatic weather hit. http://celebrating200years.noaa.gov/events/storm/welcome.html#firsts 5 Historical Perspective for the Year of 1993 Flood of '93 in the Midwest The Mississippi and Missouri flooded.
