Would you allow your genome sequence to be used in conjunction with your medical records for research?

Summary Introduction

To determine: Whether a person allow its genome sequence to be used in conjunction with the medical records for research.

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

DNA sequencing corresponds to the position of nucleotides that are present 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.

A person should allow the use of its genome sequence in medical records for research as this step helps the person in the following ways:

  • • This helps in the comparison of genetic makeup of an individual with the other human genomes...
