    Default human genome project

    okay ill add the rest later when i am at home. ATM i'm at school so yeah. Basically I recently became interested in the human genome project and I was wondering if anyone else shares such an intrest. Ive read sever things on the matter such as things on MPD that would be created through manipulating the gene. playing with innate abilitys that are programed into the gene. Curing deseases. getting rid of the certain ressesive genes or preventing them from showing. enhancing the human, and so on. I have read a shit load on this for the past few days so I can't exactly say everything in a minute that i'm typing this.....well two or three. Anywhop.


    just wanted to see what the people here would say or how they respond or what they think about altering the human gene through gene manipulation to better or worsen a human or organism period.


    hmmmm havn't posted in a while.... anywhop.... well heres that till i fix it when home.

    as long as the gene manipulation is for curing diseases, i think its okay. I have a question though, is this project going to mess with human appearance, if yes wouldn't you think that's going a bit far?

    Something like that... I could check but suffice to say it was quite a while ago and it's only now really starting to filter into the school system =_=

    Just so you know... It's actually extremely difficult to do large scale gene-manipulation on a full-grown creature.

    Pretty much the only vector technique we have is viral encoding, and an injection of virii is only going to modify 30-40% of the cells around the injection site, with a cubic rate of decrease thereafter. [Or would it be geometric?]

    Note: this is because you do NOT want to inject someone with a replicating virus that will have a large impact it will infect others, unleashing a potentially fatal mod

    oh joy. Genetics. Fond memories... -.-

    well, the human genome has been calculated already. So has many other organism's genomes. I did research on one of em. I got an article published on NCBI. (That large database place...)
    It's actually a very tedious process and not as exciting as it sounds.
