What you'll learn

This course‚ covers the things you'll need to know and be able to do for achievement standard‚ 91607‚ Demonstrate understanding of human manipulations of genetic transfer and its biological implications.‚ 

In it you'll find answers to questions like:

  • How are animals selectively bred - what is artificial insemination, genomic selection, embryo selection and embryo transfer?
  • How are plants selectively bred - what are graftings,‚ cuttings‚ and tissue cultures and what is polyploidy?
  • What are the biological implications of selective breeding?
  • How can a whole organism (plant or animal)‚ be cloned - in the case of animal cloning,‚ what is somatic cell nuclear transfer?
  • What is the concept of de-extinction?
  • What are the biological implications of whole organism cloned?
  • What is recombinant DNA?
  • How do‚ cloning vectors function - what are plasmids and bacteriophages?
  • What is transgenesis - how would we make organisms transgenic?
  • What are the biological implications of transgenesis?
  • What is gene expression - how can we control gene expression in prokaryotes and eukaryotes?
  • How can gene expression be modified?
  • What is DNA‚ methylation?
  • What is genome analysis and PCR?
  • What is gel electrophoresis?
  • What is DNA‚ sequencing and what are DNA‚ chips?
  • What are the biological implications of the modification of gene expression?
