What is the human genome project and whose genome was sequenced?

What is the human genome project and whose genome was sequenced?

Map of Human DNA: The Human Genome Project created a map of human DNA and was completed in 2003. Anonymous samples were donated by several people, but the majority of the "genome map" is from a single male donor from Buffalo, NY. The identity of this individual is not known by researchers who sequenced the DNA. ...Read more

What is the human genome project?

What is the human genome project?

The Human Genome: Project (HGP) was an international scientific research project with the goal of determining the sequence of chemical base pairs which make up human DNA, and of identifying and mapping all of the genes of the human genome from both a physical and functional standpoint. ...Read more

Is video game entertainment necessary for human development?

No: We have developed normally for thousdands of years before video games were developed. If you don't want your kids to play them, make that the rule of your home. ...Read more

Is there a scientific discipline that studies the role of genes on behavior/personality traits?

Is there a scientific discipline that studies the role of genes on behavior/personality traits?

Sure: Here is a link to the international society of psychiatric genetics: http://www.Ispg.Net/. Also, the field of developmental neuropsychiatry covers much of what is known relative to psychiatric disorders with developmental origins. One of my mentors at the johns hopkins kennedy krieger institute, dr. James c. Harris wrote an excellent book on the subject. ...Read more

How are draft sequence and finished sequence in relation to human genome project different?

Incomplete versus : In 2000, the human genome project announced an assembled working draft of the sequence of the human genome. They assembled over lapping fragments covering 97% of the human genome. The draft was much more complete than they had expected--over 22.1 billion basis of raw sequence data totaling 7-fold sequence coverage. 24% was completely finished, and 50% in near finished or better form. ...Read more

What factors affect human growth and development?

What factors affect human growth and development?

Genetics + environ-: ment, including prenatal environment. The ongoing interaction of an infant, toddler, child or teen with his or her environment, e.g., parents, family. & community, determines his or her developmental trajectory. This transactional theory of development removes the question of nature vs. nurture. ...Read more

Are bulk beings/ advanced beings guiding humanity into better future. Like in INTERSTELLAR MOVIE are these beings shaping our present n future.

Who knows?: You've posted this question on a network which provides health and medical information, but your question doesn't fall within that realm. A physician's training and experience would not qualify him or her to be any more knowledgeable about your question than anyone else. That said, I'm not aware of any objective data which is responsive to your question, and I think it's a matter of speculation. ...Read more

How can organisms similarities in anatomy and embryology provide evidence for evolution?

How can organisms similarities in anatomy and embryology provide evidence for evolution?

Ontogeny recapitul-: ates phylogeny. That means that during embryonic development, the embryo goes through physical forms that mimic your ancestors, rather than just develop right into a human. An early human embryo looks very much like our amphibian and then dinosaur (well, chicken, which is really the same thing) ancestors, and then many early structures wither and die, being replaced by more advanced species. ...Read more

How much percent genetics and environmental play role in human height ?

How much percent  genetics and environmental  play role in human height ?

Cannot quantify: Hi. We cannot quantify what percentage is genetic and what percentage is environment in height or any other phenotype, but under normal circumstances (adequate nutrition, etc), for height it's mostly genetic. Disease can be classified in that assessment of phenotype as either environment or genetic, depending. ...Read more

Are cleft lips/palates discovered/diagnosed during an anatomy scan?

Are cleft lips/palates discovered/diagnosed during an anatomy scan?

At birth: Cleft lip and/or cleft palate is visible at birth, and will be noted by the pediatrcian who examines the newborn. There is a rare anatomic anomaly called a submucous cleft, where the palatal bone does not fuse, but the overlying tissue looks normal, that is discoverable by palpation and x-ray. ...Read more
