If you were offered the chance to have the genome of your newborn sequenced at a cost of $1,000, would you do so?

Summary Introduction

To determine: Whether a person take a chance to sequence the genome of its newborn at a cost of $1,000.

Introduction: A process to identify the sequence of nucleotides in the nucleic acid is called DNA sequencing. A nitrogenous base, sugar molecule, and a phosphate group are three components of a nucleotide. The nucleotides form the backbone of the DNA strand.

Explanation of Solution

The sequencing of a DNA strand corresponds to the position of nucleotides that are embedded in the structure of DNA. The arrangement of nucleotide bases which are adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine in the DNA at various positions represents its functioning. The arrangement of these nucleotides is responsible for the expression of specific features in an individual.

The person should take a chance to sequence the genome of its newborn baby. Sequencing of genome provides the complete organizational structure of DNA strands which can serve as an advantageous aspect for the newborn...
