Biology 113 Writing Project Gene s are the fundamental u nits of heritance in multicellular organisms . After studying Mendelian genetics , I learned that phenotypes are decided by genotypes, construct ing the differences between people. By exploring genes scientists can predict the heredit y of diseases such as cancer and blindness and start treat ing them before they even appear . If scientists find the way to change genes, a lot of diseases would be cured. This topic interest s me a lot , s o I decided to do my writing project about gene expression and hereditary diseases . The articles I will present are about the use of gene expression to predict inheritance of diseases and development of treatments at the genetic level for these illnesses . These articles and our class materials are related. From the lecture, we learned about Mendelian genetics in human. Dwarf and Huntington’s diseases are both diseases caused by genes. The articles I found first further confirm the gene cause diseases like what we learned in lecture and then demonstrate the progress of curing diseases using the knowledge in genes.
