Genetic Engineering

QuestionAnswer
Invitro Fertilization In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a complex series of procedures used to treat fertility or genetic problems and assist with the conception of a child. During IVF, mature eggs are collected (retrieved) from your ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab.
Test Tube Baby A baby conceived by in vitro fertilization.
Genetic Engineering The deliberate modification of the characteristics of an organism by manipulating its genetic material.
Genetic Mutation A gene mutation is a permanent change in the DNA sequence that makes up a gene. Mutations range in size from a single DNA building block to a large segment of a chromosome.
Gene Pool The stock of different genes in an interbreeding population.
Embryo an unborn or unhatched offspring in the process of development.
Morals a lesson, especially one concerning what is right or prudent, that can be derived from a story, a piece of information, or an experience.
Disease a disorder of structure or function in a human, animal, or plant, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury.
Enhancement
Prohibit formally forbid (something) by law, rule, or other authority.
Prevention the action of stopping something from happening or arising.
Controversy disagreement, typically when prolonged, public, and heated.
Alter change or cause to change in character or composition, typically in a comparatively small but significant way.
Ramification a consequence of an action or event, especially when complex or unwelcome.
Somatic Mutation A change in the genetic structure that is not inherited from a parent, and also not passed to offspring, is called a somatic cell genetic mutation or acquired mutation.
Germline Mutation A germline mutation is any detectable and heritable variation in the lineage of germ cells. Mutations in these cells are transmitted to offspring, while, on the other hand, those in somatic cells are not.
Sex either of the two main categories (male and female) into which humans and many other living things are divided on the basis of their reproductive functions.
Genome the haploid set of chromosomes in a gamete or microorganism, or in each cell of a multicellular organism.
Super-Human having or showing exceptional ability or powers.
Somatic Tissue Every other cell type in the mammalian body, apart from the sperm and ova, the cells from which they are made (gametocytes) and undifferentiated stem cells.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
