NC BIOLOGY ESSENTIAL STANDARDS COVERED:
Summarize the process of gel electrophoresis as a technique to separate molecules based on size. Students should learn the general steps of gel electrophoresis – using restrictions enzymes to cut DNA into different sized fragments and running those fragments on gels with longer fragments moving slower than faster ones.
Interpret or “read” a gel.
Exemplify applications of DNA fingerprinting - identifying individuals; identifying and cataloging endangered species.
Generalize the applications of transgenic organisms (plants, animals, & bacteria) in agriculture and industry including pharmaceutical applications such as the production of human insulin.
Summarize the steps in bacterial transformation (insertion of a gene into a bacterial plasmid, getting bacteria to take in the plasmid, selecting the transformed bacteria, and producing the product).
Identify the reasons for establishing the Human Genome Project.
Recognize that the project is useful in determining whether individuals may carry genes for genetic conditions and in developing gene therapy.
Evaluate some of the science of gene therapy. (e.g. Severe Combined Immunodeficiency and Cystic Fibrosis)
Critique the ethical issues and implications of genomics and biotechnology (stem cell research, gene therapy and genetically modified
