  • Genetically Modified Plants/Pro & Con

    A 3 page research paper that discusses this issue of genetically modified (GM) plants. The writer discusses literature both pro and con and concludes that GM foods are a part of society's future, whether for good or ill. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Arguing Against Genetic Engineering

    A 4 page contention that holds as many or more threats for society as it does promises. This thesis is supported through a discussion of the direct and indirect impacts genetically engineered species have to the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of species that are currently unutilized but which hold promise for the cures of disease and illness. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Deafness, Genetics, and Metabolism

    A 4 page paper containing 2 distinct sections: 1 page on carbohydrates and weight gain, 3 pages discussing the Cx26 gene (GJB2/DFNB1). This gene is associated with autosomal recessive deafness, ranging from moderate to profound. The paper lists and discusses several of the allele variants of this gene. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

    This 6 page paper explains what stem cells are, their potential for healing human diseases, and why they are controversial to some. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Stem Cell Research Addressing the Challenges

    This 3 page paper delineates the benefits of stem cell research and the challenges that it faces. The author presents the opinion that the future of this research rests on the identification of alternatives for harvesting that do not involve human fetuses. Bibliography lists 4 sources

  • Chemical Toxic Threat of Mercury

    Mercury is a known neurotoxin and for this reason, it has been targeted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a primary toxic exposure threat. Mercury is transferred through multiple means including ingestion, airborne, and osmosis through the skin. Mercury toxins are released into the air naturally, as well as through car and other exhaust. Mercury is a component of computer chip manufacturing and for the IUB, it is served in the cafeterias and restaurants around campus via fish. The National Research Council cites prenatal exposure effects ranging from mental retardation and cerebral palsy to deafness and blindness.... 9 references. jvToxThr.rtf

    This 6 page paper provides significant information in respect to the use of genetic markers in plant breeding. Consumer issues pertinent to the pitfalls of bioengineering are addressed. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Human Cloning in the Future

    (7 pp) The idea of human cloning either sounds like something out of a bad science fiction movie, is a boon to medical science or a travesty to morality. As in the case of most exaggerations, there is a shred of truth in all of them. Although our proposed challenge is to project what might happen, some of those projections will be examined under a humorous light. Generally speaking we learn best when we can laugh. Other projections are as assigned. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
