Monkeys Using Gene Therapy
Find an article from the library and/or internet related to course material from Ch. 1 – 3 that you find interesting and post a link. It could be a news article from a source like the Washington Post, an article posted by a science magazine/journal like Science or National Geographic, or a scientific research article. You cannot post something like a Wikipedia or WebMD article however. Try not to post blogs or articles from disreputable sources. You’ll probably have the best luck searching for things related to Homeostatic Imbalances.
For example, here’s an interesting article about researchers being able to prevent inherited mitochondrial disease in monkeys using gene therapy to replace the disease-causing mutations > https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2020/12/12/Gene-therapy-for-mitochondrial-disease-shows-promise-in-animals/3051607725625/ <. Since we discuss mitochondria in Ch. 3, I did a Google search for “mitochondria disease” and clicked on the “news” tab to find this article.
Post the website link or video link for another student to read. Include a brief statement about why you find the article interesting.
