Transcript: DNA Day DNA Day is when students, teachers and the public can learn more about genetics. The day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project that occured in April, 2003 and the discovery of DNA's double helix. NHGRI celebrated National DNA Day on April 23, 2010 DNA Day is thought to be celebration internationally. People's fitness and nutrition play a role in their DNA because their choices affect their traits, which could be passed down to an offspring. More about DNA Day... DNA is important to society because it exposes education audiences to the importance of genetics. It also celebrates our knowledge of Human Genetics. In Hawai'i students do activities on DNA Day that help them understand genetics. They call it DNA (Activity) Day. Human Genome Project The HGP had a goal to learn more about Human genetics such as: Identify the 20,000-25,000 genes found in Human DNA Determine the sequence nitrogen base pairs found in DNA Store information found in databases Improve tools for data analysis Addresses the ethical, legal, and social issues. It is important because it completed most of our knowledge about human genetics, which is important to medical and scientific research. Genetic Code Manipulation Genetic code can be manipulated by genetic engineering; which involves alteration of an individual's genotype by replacing a fragment of their DNA with a desired trait. DNA can be manipulated to improve human condition by altering the structure and characteristics of the genes directly. For example, you can take a defected gene and replace it with a desired gene. Genetic engineering can be used to cure things such as cystic fibrosis, but replacing the affected cell with a better one Ethical Issues Involved with Genetic Engineering The issues brought up when discussing genetic engineering are: Individuality is being forgotten Health risks Long term effects on the environment Inflicting pain on patients New physical or behavioral traits may not be readily distinguished from what is percieved to be "human" Personal, social, cultural consequences A big ethical debate is that crossing species is unnatural, immoral and violation of God's Laws. Mutations and Diversity Mutations are a chemical change in a gene resulting in a new allele, ot s change in a portion of a chromosome that regulates the gene: in either case the change is hereditary.Genetic mutations create variation within a population; variation creates diversity which is key to evolution. The difference between mutations that are expressed and aren't expressed is that some mutations effect phenotype which can be physically detected, and others only effect genotype which cannot be detected physically. Societal Impacts of Genetics Genetics have a societal impact because its basically the building blocks of life. Depending on genetics you obtain certain traits that effect your lifestyle. Heredity of genes effects the environment by evolving genetics as they are passed down; this changes populations and effects them greatly. Development relies genetics by the variation, evolvement, and beneficial traits of a population; without these populations could develope. Ethics are affected by genetics because of the issues that are brought with genetic engineering; as we learn more about genetics more ethical issues are addressed. DNA and Replication Chromosomes contain DNA-bound proteins, which serve to package the DNA and control its functions. DNA replicates itself "unzipping" and going through the process of transcription, translation, and protein synthesis. DNA Location Eukaryotic DNA is generally located in the cell nucleus. DNA is packaged in chromosomes, in the form of a double helix. Most prokaryotes contain a single, circular DNA molecule; it is the stage of a cell before it developes a nucleus. Size The haploid human genome contains over 3 billion DNA base pairs. Prokaryote DNA can be up to 10 Mbp's in size. Bacterial DNA differs in size and shape from human, animal or plant DNA because it is much smaller and ovular-shaped instead of in the shape of a double helix Our Opinions Our opinion of DNA Day is that its a great way to spend extra time learning about such an important factor of the human population. Knowing about our genetics can be interesting and helpful when learning about Human Biology; we also can learn more about our own family's by studying DNA Credits http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/home.shtml http://www.genome.gov/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_genetic_engineering http://www.actionbioscience.org/biotech/glenn.html
