  • Advancements in the Field of Genomics

    961 Words  | 4 Pages

    The field of genomics is quickly and steadily gaining momentum in the field of systematics. Based on an organism’s genetics, it applies novel methods of DNA sequencing and bioinformatics to sequence, construct, and analyze the structure, and consequently, the function, of entire genomes, using the resulting genetic information from different specimens in fine-scale genetic mapping. Advancements in other fields such as human biomedicine may also be dependent on progress made in genomics, especially

  • The Role Of Genomics And Proteomics Fields

    1338 Words  | 6 Pages

    A relatively premature science, genomics has the potential to advance the quality of life for any organism on earth. It will give researchers the ability to gain finally a proper understand of ourselves, and the organisms around us, on a molecular level. The scientists participating in the HGP were the first ones to take this idea and make it reality. With several institutes working around the world, they aimed to provide a complete understanding of the human genome and proteomics, the study of

  • Your Body is trying to Destroy You! Genetic Mapping Can Help Save You

    goals to expand the use of genetic mapping which includes finding ways to lower the cost of genome sequencing to less than a thousand dollars. It would be a huge feat but a goal the Institute could manage to realize in the next ten years. ("Decade of Genomics NHGRI Celebrates 10th Anniversary") There was a little unforeseen additional to the National Institutes of Health, which is the Cancer Genome Atlas. The whole goal of this program is to use genetic mapping to its full potential when it comes to cancer

  • The Chemistry Of Organic Contaminants

    2152 Words  | 9 Pages

    Over the past ten years, the Institute of Gas Technology, now Gas Technology Institute (GTI), USA and others have conducted research on the bioremediation of organic contaminants in soil. Most of this work has been associated with remediation of former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites, soils from industrial areas and oil production areas have also been studied. The results have shown that: (1) organic contaminants are biodegraded by indigenous soil microorganisms to a concentration that no longer

  • Developing Aquaculture Systems And Aquatic Animal Health Management Essay

    1872 Words  | 8 Pages

    culture methods. Over the past decade, “Metagenomics,” which are culture-independent genomics analysis of microbes, has been developed to overcome those problems. Metagenomics are the study of the collective genomes of the members of a microbial community. This paper would bring a basic knowledge about the metagenomics, related technology applied in the field of fisheries and their application of modern genomics techniques in aquatic animal health management, aquaculture dealing with microbial diversity

    of drosophila m. aided in how to map the human genome. It was used as a test system to explore the likelihood of being able to sequence a whole genome for a large complex eukaryote. It was found that Drosophila m. provided a complete, high quality genomic sequence which has been used by the research community as a model organisms (4) when researching molecular mechanisms underlying development, behaviour, aging, genetic inheritance and other metazoan processes

  • Cardiovascular Diseases

    1194 Words  | 5 Pages

    Several researches investigated the benefits of knowing the genomic sequence and how it is associated with the risk of certain disease. There are several arguments contrary to genomic research and some are supporting it. For instance The Director of Cancer genetics center at Johns Hopkins university says “it may become one important determination in patient care, but certainly not the only one” [source]. Several studies doubts that genomic research providing any extra information about the possibility

  • Essay On Genetic Change

    1133 Words  | 5 Pages

    practical advances have built on the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, started in 1990. At the associated research cost of over $3 billion US dollars (c.$2.7 billion actual), a combined research initiative succeeded in fully sequencing the genomic makeup of one human. The prototype for human gene sequencing via chemical analysis that this process gave to science has been refined over the last decade. Continuous

    and specializes in paternity and pharmacogenomics, which simplified, is the study of individualized effect of drugs based on genetics. Genelex and other companies similar to them could be a threat by repositioning themselves, to combat health based genomic sequencing. A target market is a business going after a certain group of people based on age, sex, race, location, religion, and other factors. My estimated target market for 23andMe is new families, and I will explain why. During the pregnancy process

  • Abnormal Psychology: The Human Genome Project

    846 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Human Genome Project, also known as HGP has helped our society crack the code in the small differences between human DNA that make up our health and can already pinpoint future illnesses. HPG was an international joint research preparation with the goal of mapping and trying to understand all the human genes sequences through generations. Researchers have been able to decode our genomes and understand them in three different ways. First off they have been able to see that our genome’s DNA
