Explanation of Solution

DNA profile - c. a person’s unique collection of short tandem repeats

The similarities between genomes of different organisms are the evidence of evolutionary relationships and can be used as a predictive tool in research. DNA profiling identifies the unique parts of DNA. The individual has a unique array of short tandem repeats and SNPs.

Ti plasmid - f. used in plant gene transfer

Ti plasmid is known as tumor inducing plasmid. It is found in bacteria called Agrobacterium tumefaciens. It is a vector that is used in plant gene transfer.

Eugenics - d. selecting “desirable” traits

Eugenics is the idea of improving the genetic qualities of the human race by choosing desirable traits. Gene therapy is used to improve or treat the affected individual.

SNPs - b...
