This article outlines two methods for administering gene therapy to the eye. The topics covered are the techniques, the effectiveness, the risk to the patient, and healing process. Intravitreal injections and subretinal injections have both been shown to be effective in allowing the cells to uptake the required genes but subretinal injections are more complicated to undertake, thus the field has moved towards intravitreal injections.

The main purpose of this article is to give an introduction into the process of transcription, which is the process by which RNA is synthesized to be used to create proteins. Transcription is one of the most important biological processes in cell and molecular biology and is fundamental to better to obtain a detailed understanding of advanced biological processes.

A brief overview of genetic mutation and their categories: specifically, single point mutations, nucleotide base additions and deletions, and base substitution, as well as induced vs. spontaneous mutation. When they occur within protein encoding genes, they can have deleterious effects, and cause several human diseases, such as sickle cell anemia.

Transposons are only one of many different movable genetic elements found within our genome. Movable genetic elements allow for genetic material to be shared and transferred between cells and within cells giving rise to mutations and variation in a population. Transposons can be classified into two different classes, “copy and paste” and “cut and paste”.

How are sequence maps of genomes produced? How is the information in the genome deciphered? What can comparative genomics reveal about genome structure and evolution? How does the availability of genomic sequence affect genetic analysis? These genome projects would make the clones and then make the sequence as an available public resources.

There are two types of mutations, spontaneous and induced. The first type, as is specified by its name, is a naturally occurring DNA mutation that can arise in all cells. The second set of mutations arises from the action of certain agents known as mutagens. These mutagens increase the rate at which mutations occur. However, both spontaneous and induced mutations are random, which is significant because it allows for genetic diversity within a species over time.

What is a gene mutation? How do people obtain these certain mutations? Genetics mutation is a permanent disorder in someone’s DNA sequence that could affect his or her life. Even a change in a segment of a chromosome can change a person’s life entirely. The surprising part is that mutations don’t always get passed from generations. In addition, there are different kinds of mutations that the normal person might not know about.

Pyrosequencing is a resourceful way of sequencing genomes in order to identify gene mutations, functions and unidentified genes. Pyrosequencing uses large number of DNA samples to obtain rapid and accurate results becoming a largely used method of sequencing genomes. This article gives investigative information about the process of pyrosequencing and its uses.

The article is a quick informational about DNA damage. It will outline where DNA damage comes from and the types of damages that affect DNA. DNA damage comes from two sources that of which are internal and external. There are different types of damages such as radiation, temperature related, and industrial chemical provoked. A quick insight on the difference between DNA damage and DNA mutation.

This article is about mutations. It is about how they happen, the different types, whether they are good or bad, and how they are important. It also talks about DNA and the importance of understanding the effects mutations have on them. It even goes over how the mutation effects matter on the DNA, and the relation with the other genetics knowledge.

This article addresses the development of healthcare for unborn children. In particular it focuses on Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and the possibilities it offers in regards to genetic manipulation. It discusses the current state of genetic manipulation as well as the future of the practice. Lastly, the social and ethical ramifications of genetic manipulation are discussed.

A current topic being discussed in the scientific, medical, and public sector is the issue of antibiotic resistance. Microorganisms possess resistance to antibiotics in the form of DNA on genes that get passed between cells, and to their offspring. Antibiotic resistance has been present since the first implementation of antibiotics, and continues to be a problem.

The process of obtaining the sequence of a genome is simple in summary, but yet more complex during the literal process that is performed in the labs. With the aid of advanced science and technology, scientist are able to perform such a delicate procedure with a low error rate and a higher percent in accuracy.

This article will discuss the two types of prokaryotic transposons, simple and composite, as well as the two methods of transposition, replicative and conservative, employed by transposons. You will learn the differences between the two types of prokaryotic transposons and which method of transposition is used. Replicative transposition will be covered in detail as it is more complicated than conservative transpoition. Eukaryotic transposons will not be discussed.

In this paper I am talking about the process of DNA microarray. The paper shows the process of what an experiment like this is like step by step. It also explains how geneticists are using this new tool to compare the genes of two different cells and observe which genes are being expressed in the two different cells.
