BIO 150 Homework 4 NAME: ID #: TEAM #: DATE: READ THE FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU BEGIN! A paper copy of this assignment must be handed in on the due date. Number your answers; do not include the questions in your submission. Your answers must be original. Follow the policies outlined in the Academic Integrity document. QUESTIONS (30 pts total) 1. The bioethics video shown during Activity 6 highlighted the concern over creating “designer babies”, which would allow parents to choose which traits are inherited and/or expressed by their offspring. Given what you’ve learned in class about genes, traits, and behavior, why would it be difficult (even impossible) to engineer a designer human? (7) 2. Besides transgenic organisms, what other kinds of biomimicry exist? Give two examples (HINT: you can use the internet to research this—remember to cite your sources!). (3) 3. What are genetically modified organisms (GMOs)? How are they different from 'natural' organisms? Why have they been created (identify at least 3 reasons)?
