antibodies a large, Y-shape protein produced by plasma cells that is used by the immune system to identify and neutralize pathogens such as bacteria and viruses
DNA fingerprints test to identify and evaluate the genetic information in a person's cells
antigens any substance that causes your immune system to produce antibodies against it
pharming involves the process of genetically engineering plants so that they can produce certain types of therapeutically important proteins and associate molecules such as peptides and secondary metabolites
personalized medicine a medical model that proposes the customization of healthcare - with medical decisions, practices, and/or products being tailored to the individual patient.
inoculation the action of inoculating or of being inoculated; vaccination.
human genome project is an international scientific research project with the goal of determining the sequence of chemical base pairs which make up human DNA, and of identifying and mapping all of the genes of the human genome from both a physical and functional standpoint
xenografts A surgical graft of tissue from one species to an unlike species (or genus or family). A graft from a baboon to a human is a xenograft.
organ transplant When you replace one person's organ with another in a surgical procedure
gene therapy an experimental technique that uses genes to treat or prevent disease

biomanufacturing Use of living genetically modified organisms or living genetically modified cells to manufacture a product
personalized genomics the branch of genomics concerned with the sequencing and analysis of the genome of an individual
hormones is any member of a class of signaling molecules produced by glands in multicellular organisms that are transported by the circulatory system to target distant organs to regulate physiology and behaviour.
vaccines A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular disease.
xenotransplantation any procedure that involves the transplantation, implantation or infusion into a human recipient of live cells, tissues, or organs from an animal source, human body fluids, cells, tissues or organs that have had exvivo contact with live animal cells
epigenetic inheritance It goes against the idea that inheritance happens only through the DNA code that passes from parent to offspring
markers an object used to indicate a position, place, or route
GWAS also known as whole genome association study (WGA study, or WGAS) or common-variant association study (CVAS), is an examination of many common genetic variants in different individuals to see if any variant is associated with a trait
edible plant vaccines nothing but transgenic plant and animal based on production.
genetic diseases a genetic problem caused by one or more abnormalities in the genome, especially a condition that is present from birth
autotransplantation the transplantation of organs, tissues, or even particular proteins from one part of the body to another in the same person
mesenchymal stem cells are adult stem cells traditionally found in the bone marrow
