    ​A cell is the smallest unit of life for any living organism and considered the essential component of life. Every living thing including humans, animals, and plants comprise of one or more cells in their body that perform different functions essential for living. There are different cells in the human body, in plants and animal functioning. This essay aims at using one cell necessary for life and discusses its properties of life, the core chemical terminology, its molecules, and compounds. Specifically

    Understanding Huntington's Disease Diagnosis of Huntington's Disease Today, a blood test is available to diagnose a person displaying suspected Huntington's symptoms. The test analyzes DNA in the blood sample and counts the number of times the genetic code for the mutated Huntington's gene is repeated. Individuals with Huntington's Disease usually have 40 or more such "repeats;" those without it, 28 or fewer. If the number of repeats falls somewhere in between then more extensive neurological

    will spend approximately 16 to 18 hours in this phase (Hay). It is sectioned into 3 phases: Gap 1 (G1), Synthesis (S), and Gap 2 (G2). During the Gap 1 phase, the cell resumes normal cell functions and growth. During the Synthesis phase, the chromosomes are replicated and sister chromatids are formed. During the Gap 2 phase,

    affecting the chromosomes of the human body. It is a hereditary disorder affecting the nervous system. The term neurofibromatosis actually refers to two different genetic diseases. The most common type is NF 1, and the less common type is NF 2. Both disorders are transmitted in an autosomal dominant fashion. An autosomal dominant disease is a disorder caused by the presence of a single autosomal dominant gene; an abnormal factor located on any chromosome other than the sex chromosome. They are

    (Neurodevelopmental and Psychosocial Risk Factors in Serial Killers and Mass Murderers, 2014) With one mutated chromosome or misplaced gene, a person’s entire life can be effected negatively which will result in difficulty in their future. A psychologist by the name of Helen Morrison conducted studies on serial killers. Her study consisted of 135 mass murders. She identified that abnormalities in a chromosomes was a big common factor amongst the offenders, and the men began revealing their aggressive side during

    Achondroplasia is a genetic disorder in which there is a growth hormone deficiency, or there is a genetic mutation in either the father’s sperm or mother’s egg. (mayo clinic, March 20,2014.) Achondroplasia was the first discovered in ancient Egyptian records. People with achondroplasia were considered people with supernatural powers. Many people call dwarfs midgets but to them, it is very disrespectful because midget literally means little person. Some acceptable names that you can use that will

    linked recessive. So if the female was the sex with the mutation then all females would be wild type heterozygous. Heterozygous is a term used when the two genes for a trait are opposite. The males would all be white eye since they only have one X chromosome. If the males were the sex that had the mutation then all the flies would be wild type but the females would be heterozygous. F1 Outcomes From the cross white eye males with wild females, our results were we got both phenotypes in the males as

    located on chromosomes and therefore, create a deeper understanding of heredity. In 1910 he discovered a white-eyed variant that became the fuel behind the new field of genetics. Throughout the following years, Morgan and his contemporaries established the foundations of classical genetics, leading to a Nobel Prize for Morgan in 1933. Linkage, in terms of genetic importance, consists of the capability of genes to be inherited together when they are located together on a single chromosome. A technique
