Genetics and DNA Technology
I used the textbook, Microbiology: An Introduction (13th edition) by Tortora, Funke, and Case Published by Pearson/Benjamin Cummings. The 12th edition is also acceptable in coming years, the development in genetics is going to have a big impact on medicine, especially in the areas of diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases. The following link explores some of those applications. http://web.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/publicat/primer2001/primer11.pdf Read about Genetics and DNA technology in chapter 8. Based on what you learned in chapter 8 and from the article on the website, post two paragraphs on Prompts: Choose a technology and the applications of DNA technology in medicine. Discuss the pros and cons of the technology you chose Please don’t copy sentences out of the book or websites. Please specify the technology you are discussing.
