is an informative site on what ground the human genome project was
going to proceed. Before the project was on a go, our society considers
the ethics that were going to be played around and set grounds for
them here in the ELSI.
I enjoyed reading this interview as Kitcher address some really
good points on why we should really consider proceeding on with
our advancements in genetics and he does this by never mentioning
to stop the advancements.
I question the suggestion made in this site. I appreciate the diversity
that exist in this world but to now pick and chose what our babies
will be. What a boring world it would be if we were all homologous.
Moreover, the survive of the species would fall as one of the advancement
in survival is variation in the gene pool; we are now cutting it
down with designer babies
CreationThis is another informative site about cloning. However
this site takes it a step further and discusses the idea of playing
God. In addition to this site, there are links to really interesting
articles for example "Embracing Changes with All Four Arms:
A Post-Humanist Defense of Genetic Engineering" by J. Hughes
I enjoyed this site very much. Not only for the great organization
that was presented the site, but also contained sections about the
"Classical Genetics," "Molecules of Genetics,"
and "Genetic Organiation and Control." Within each section,
there are historical pictures and biographies of the Scientist who
have helped create the understanding of DNA that we have today.
