    :(

    How is the baby still under the mother if it's dead? Do you mean it's the mothers choice because it's in her? So if it's in you, you can do what you want with it? When is it not right to kill? Is there some sort of age that you have to be before your free from being killed because your mother wants to?

    The fact is that stemm cell research has to do with genetic modification, but i wasnt pallning on opening a new discussion

    @brad.dude03: Adult stem-cells can be cultured from skin cells. I'm talking about recently seeing on the news that embryonic stem cells were cultured from adults.

    @Mor)L(unE: Absolutely not. Growing someone a new organ is completely different from deciding on whether or not you want to change your child's natural eye/hair colour, intelligence, height, things of the like. Apples and oranges.

    Well...in the case of genetic modification...Perhaps Apples and Oranges are not so different afterall.

    So Science + Humans = Stem Cell Research? I really don't see the logic behind that.

    I dont see the logic of your question either. I was telling that stem cell research has a great influence and purposes on/for genetic research.

    No it doesn't. Research in both fields is capable of happening completely independently of research in the other field, although it's plausible that some research in stem cells could benefit the field of genetic modification.

    Hmmz i did some research on stem cells. I didnt quite formulated genetic sience well, i meant the part of genetic science that concerns diseases on either long term or short term basis eg. cancer.

    Some cell research could lead to a cure for cancer, cure muscle damage and stuff.

    well do share like 80% of our gene code with them, as do we share a large amount of DNA with pretty much every organism in existance. what is true of ecoli is true of elephants.

    Apparently, we share either 48% or 52% of our DNA with daisies. I question the truth behind how similar our DNA actually is. When you consider that we share 99.9% of our DNA with other people, it gives you a scale of just how much DNA we have to vary.

    I don't think 3 is the real amount of significant digits when comparing DNA in percent.

    well tbh, its all to do with the fact that we share a large amount of junk dna with everything. its what links us to the trees?

    Also, it's possible for two people with almost exactly the same DNA to have different aspects of that DNA expressed, and look very different.

    or for two different genes to express themselves in much the same way.
