The New Biology (cont.) Stemagen Inc 1-17-2008 The first Human Clone - 25 donated oocytes - skin clles - 5 confirmed embyros Theres reproductive cloning where the embryo is impanted in a uterus and made into a baby, and then theres non-reproductive cloning. Stemagen wants to use non-reproductive cloning to make stem cells from donors. The Control of Life - The first in vitro fertilization was in 1978. (vitro meaning glass, in glass) - Jaycee Buzzanca 1995 created by 5 people and born with no parents 1. the sperm donor 2. the egg donor 3. Lou Ann (age 36) 4. John 5. the surrogate mother 8-10,000 in vitro babies per year - The husband divorces Lou Ann 2 months into the divorce and Lou Ann still wants the baby. The surrogate mother decides she doesnt want to give the baby to her because shes divorced. Ends up in court and the end decision is that anyone who conspires to create a baby then owns that baby. So Lou Ann got it and John had to pay child support The Control of Human Genetic Potentiality

Unformatted text preview: - the average person carries 7-8 recessive lethal genetic conditions- Eugenics: all of the techniques available in science applied to improving the breed- Negative Eugenics: finding harmful, bad traits and breeding them out- Positive Eugenics: taking positive traits and passing them on, taking 2 beautiful animals and breeding them to make a more beautiful animal- Karyotype: a special photograph of chromosomes usually biggest to smallest, laid out so you can see them- Amniocnetisis: sticking a needle into the uterus at 17 weeks to test that fluid for genetic disorders- Chorionic Villus Sampling: they take a biopsy of the sack in the uterus through the cervix to test for genetic disorders. not as comprehensive as Amniocentisis but it can be done much earlier 6-9 weeks- Pre-Implantation Testing: blastocysts are created in vitro and then a cell sample is taken. then they are tested for genetic disorders. you can choose not to have that in vivo if it has a disorder...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
