“Synthetic chromosomes, Transcriptomes, and Patents on BRCA genes”

For your primary post, please respond to one of the following three topics with a post of at least 125 words that addresses each point given in the instructions. Also, please reply to at least one fellow student on any topic.

Topic 1 [videos]:  It’s parent was a computer file. Watch the short video about organism with the synthetic chromosome that was created at the Craig Venter Institute (1)* and the video about the “streamlined” version that organism(2)*.   Subsequently, answer the following: (a) How does the DNA in the synthetic organisms differ from DNA in naturally-occurring microorganisms? (b) What do you think we’ve learned from these experiments? (c) In your opinion, what are the inherent risks of this research to human health or to the environment, if any?

Topic 2 [article]: Transcriptomes. The complete set of all DNA in a cell is called the genome. The complete set of all the mRNA in a cell is called the transcriptome. Read the following article about the transcriptome (1)*, then address the following: (a)  What does the transcriptome tell us that we can’t get from the genome?  (b)  If we compare the transcriptome between cells that have completely different functions in the body, how do you think they would compare? (c) Explain how this concept relates to our lesson on gene expression from Chapter 7.

Topic 3 [research]: Patent protection for BRCA genes. On the Internet, read one or more articles about how the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled in the caseof Association for Molecular Pathology versus Myriad Genetics. In your answer, you must give credit to your source(s). Your answer must address the following: (a) Describe some of the major reasons why the plaintiffs objected to Myriad’s patent on the breast cancer-related genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2. (b) Describe the SCOTUS ruling regarding naturally-occuring DNA sequences, as well as their ruling regarding DNA sequences that do not exist in Nature.

Note: the rulings of lower courts are NOTof interest for our purposes. Please concentrate only on SCOTUS’s ruling. The objective here is to emphasize the precedent-setting ruling of the highest court (SCOTUS), rather than to recount the litigation history.  (c) What is your view on the issue of whether we should allow human genes to be patented? Be absolutely sure that you cite your sources, and list your references.

The start of the season for Duke comes with two road assignments, the first a revenge game as well.

The Duke visit Kentucky on Tuesday night.

A year ago, a nationally ranked Duke sustained a stunning home loss to Kentucky.

 Watch LIVE:: http://online-tvchannel.org/college-basketball/ 

The first day of the college basketball season is upon us. The day can bring about mixed emotions from fans, as the fans wonder which teams are going to live up to expectations and which teams are going to take the bad losses which will eliminate them from at large tourney contention.

“They’re talented. They’re gifted,” Roy Williams said of newcomers. “I know they’re going to step up and be able to play for us.”

The Duke went with White as the starting point guard in last week’s exhibition against Division II Mount Olive, suggesting that he’s ahead of junior Seventh Woods.

“They’ve been neck-in-neck,” senior guard Kenny Williams said of the point guards. “I don’t know what made Coach make that decision.”

Sophomore Garrison Brooks was pegged as the starting post player for Duke, though that could be a fluid situation.

Duke has players representing 64.6 percent of the team’s scoring from a year ago, when the team posted a 26-11 record. Maye scored 16.9 points per game, Johnson was at 12.4 and Kenny Williams at 11.4

Kentucky senior guard Fletcher Magee is the Duke Conference Preseason Player of the Year. He averaged 22.1 points per game, including 27 at Duke. The Terriers were picked to finish second in the league’s official preseason poll as they come off a 21-13 season.

“We’re as deep a team as we’ve had in recent memory,” Kentucky coach Mike Young said. “I hope that plays out over the course of the year. I can comfortably play a number of guys.”

Magee gave the Duke fits last year.

“They played better than us in every phase of the game,” Roy Williams said. “There’s no question that Magee is just and unbelievable shooter. He makes difficult shots.”

The Terriers took an offseason exhibition trip to Portugal to help prepare for the season. The benefits of that have shown up this fall.

“Just becoming more comfortable with one another,” Young said. “… We’ll look at some different things defensively.”

Duke is 96-12 all-time in season openers, including 14-1 under Roy Williams. The Hall of Fame coach as the Duke in the preseason Top 10 for the 13th time in 16 seasons.

All four previous Duke-Kentucky matchups took place in Chapel Hill, N.C.

This will be only the seventh road opener for the Duke since the dawn of the Atlantic Coast Conference era in 1953-54. Duke is 5-1 in the previous such assignments.

Kentucky pulled off a 63-60 home victory against Georgia Tech last year, so it’s no easy path for ACC visitors.

In their first two seasons at UNC, Williams and forward Luke Maye played for the national title twice. As freshmen, the two lost 77-74 to Kentucky on a game-winning buzzer beater. As sophomores, they won the championship on a 71-65 win over Kentucky.
