This paper gives a brief description of the processes that scientists use in creating genetically modified organisms. The paper then investigates the genetics of human blood types by the use of Punnett squares. The last portion of this paper investigates a common genetic disorder, Down syndrome, and discusses the overall causes and common symptoms that a person affected with this disorder will exhibit.
From the Paper:"The Uses of Biotechnology Genetically modified organisms are slowly creeping more and more into everyday life. Genetic engineering allows for the creation and manipulation of an organisms genome in order to establish traits that are not normally present. With genetic engineering specific genes can be added or removed in order to create an organism with specific traits. During the process of genetic engineering, a known gene sequence can be modified, implanted or in some cases removed. Currently scientific researchers refer to genetically modified organisms that have a specific gene removed as a "knock-out". Knock-out organisms no longer have a functional gene and will..."
