Objective: Demonstrate a complete understanding of the structure of DNA, its role, how it accomplishes its job, how errors in the DNA happen, and what the consequences of those errors might be.
Your job is to choose a physical trait that you exhibit or have an interest in learning more about.Remember a ‘physical trait’ doesn’t necessarily need to have an outward appearance.An example of this is red/green colorblindness. Explain this trait’s existence: what is the trait’s inheritance pattern?Is it a dominant or recessive trait?Does this trait follow simple Mendelian rules of inheritance or is it a sex-linked trait, a polygenic trait, or exhibit incomplete dominance or codominance.Discuss whether the trait will be passed on to your child. What would be the possible cause(s) and consequence(s) of a mutation in the gene(s) that code for this trait? This explanation should be in one of the following forms:
1.a minimum 500 word essay,
2.a 2-3 page brochure,
3.a multipage, multimedia website, or
some other format that you feel adequately covers all the project requirements, and that can be submitted using the tools available to you.
DO NOT just fill in the outline. You are expected to create a project using the outline.
Resources: should include information from your course syllabus, your text: Glencoe Biology Chapters 10, 11, 12, and 13 (and any assignments from those chapters), technical vocabulary from the course, and other resources that you can locate on your own (these should be listed in your paper). The paper should be written as if to inform someone who has no knowledge of this subject. Feel free to include drawings or illustrations to make your point.
A. From where did you get the DNA?
1. Describe the production of the gametes from which you developed.You are describing how they are produced.The naming of this process is not sufficient here.You must describe this process.(5 pts)
2.How does the DNA copy itself so that all of your cells have the same DNA sequences?(Hint! You may want to outline this in a step-wise manner.Don’t forget to discuss the leading and the lagging strand). (5 pts)
3.All cells in your body do not exhibit all of the traits you have, yet they all have the same DNA. Explain this. (5 pts)
B. HOW does the DNA cause the trait? (What does DNA tell the cell to do?)
1. Describe the process in which DNA sends the instructions out of the nucleus?Again, you are not just naming this process and its products. (5 pts)
2.Describe the process of protein synthesis. (5 pts)
III. PREDICT whether your child will have this trait.
IV. DESCRIBE the consequences of a change in your DNA.
A. What type of environmental factors cause a change in DNA and what is this change in DNA called. In addition, please provide and explain at least 3 examples of mutation types (not the associated disorder). (Hint! See table 12.3 for examples) (5 pts).
B.What kind of change in DNA would affect you? (Hint!Think about this on a cellular level) (5 pts)
C.What kind of change in DNA would affect your child? (Hint!Think about this on a cellular level) (5 pts)
|Demonstrate a complete understanding of the structure of DNA|
GATTACA is a science fiction movie about a future in which genetic technology determines your success or failure. Using what you’ve learned about DNA and genetics from class, answer the questions below. The questions must be answered in whole. Please use complete sentences to fully answer the question.
1. The title “GATTACA” is composed entirely of the letters found in which type of biological macromolecule? Describe how these “letters” are arranged in
2. What biological structure does the winding stairs in Jerome’s apartment resemble? What do we call this arrangement? What components of the molecule are represented by the “steps”? What components are represented by the rails?
3. The FBI agents are called “Hoovers,” a reference to legendary top G-man J. Edgar Hoover, but also a clever reference to a vacuum cleaner brand. There are numerous shots of vacuums being used to gather hair, dead skin cells, and nails. What are these materials being collected? How would these materials be analyzed?
4. The surgery that Vincent undergoes to increase his height is called the Ilizarov procedure, named after the Russian doctor who invented it 40 years ago to treat dwarfism. This painful operation adds length by allowing new bone to grow in the gap left by gradually separating ends of the broken bone. The patient’s shinbones are cut in two, a brace is applied and metal pins would pull apart the ones a millimeter a day. Risks include feet permanently turned at odd angles, twisted legs, and weakened bones that break again and again. Why is Vincent undergoing this procedure? How does it relate to his designation as an “invalid”? How is the connotation of the word “invalid” in this movie different from the current connotation?
5. When GATTACA was first released, as part of the marketing campaign there were advertisements for people to call up and have their children genetically engineered. Thousands of people actually called the phone number, believing the advertisement to be true. Do you think scientists should be working on genetic engineering? Why? Note: technology has advanced since this movie came out. We currently have the capabilities to do some level engineering of gametes. This debate is no longer science fiction, its reality.
6. The film’s working title was “The Eighth Day,” an allusion to the days of creation described in the Bible’s book of Genesis. In the bible God created the earth from nothing in six days and rested on the seventh. Why do you think, The Eighth Day, was considered as a title? Why do you think it was rejected?
7. The beginning of the movie has a quote from Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament, “Consider God’s handiwork, who can straighten what He hath made crooked”. If we can choose the characteristics of our children in the future, then should we? Why or why not? Which characteristics would be OK to choose? Which would not? Who would decide and how?
8. The real Jerome is expected to be perfect because of his “superior” genes. Is this superiority a blessing or a curse for him and why?
9. The Mission Director at GATTACA says, “No one exceeds their (genetic) potential.” Do you agree? Did genes predict Vincent’s success (or failure)? What else might affect someone’s potential? What is the movie’s definition of a “de-generate”?
10. The piano player in the concert scene is playing a musical piece that can only be played by a person with 6 fingers on each hand. How feasible would this characteristic be to genetically engineer?
11. In movie, what do you think was scientifically feasible today? What do you think will be feasible in the future? After you answer this below to see what some of the science the movie got wrong.
Bad Science in GATTACA
• Vincent tells Irene that he’s already 10000 heartbeats beyond his expected lifespan. No doubt he means some much higher number; the human heart beats about 90000 times a day!
• Healthy individuals do not shed nucleated cells into their urine, so DNA cannot usually be obtained from it. If you pee out nucleated cells, then go to the hospital!
• The so-called “electric” cars have tailpipes which produced exhaust.
• Here are some famous people who may have not been born if “genetically inferior” children were discarded in the past: Abraham Lincoln (Marfan’s syndrome), Emily Dickenson (Manic Depression), Vincent van Gogh (Epilepsy), Albert Einstein (Dyslexia), John F. Kennedy (Addison’s disease), Rita Hayworth (Alzheimer’s disease), Ray Charles (Primary Glaucoma), Stephen Hawking (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), Jackie Joyner-Kersee (Asthma). Of course, the other birth that may never have taken place is your own!
12. Describe two other examples of “Bad Science” that you observed in the movie.

With the advances in genetics over the years, one area that has seen tremendous growth is the manufacturing of genetically modified food. Basically, science has found a way to modify the genome of plants to change them in many different ways. It has been estimated that as much as 90% of the food we eat in the US has been genetically modified. The genetically modified food debate has many pros and cons. On one hand, researchers are creating foods that are higher in nutrition and they are even making foods that contain vital vaccines for children in impoverished countries. They are also able to create drought-resistant and pest-resistant crops.
On the other hand, there is much concern about the effects that genetically modified food have on our bodies. I would love to hear your thoughts on this controversial subject.
