Human eugenics, are you for or against it?

What is your opinion on applying selective breeding to humans? How would you enforce it?

Personally I believe it would be positive for mankind, we do it to basicly everthing biological around us(animals, plants) why not also to ourselves?

First question. Lets assume that grey eyes comes from incomplete dominance of the allele "black". Then the mother is bB and the husband is homozygote, so its impossible for the baby to have white eyes, unless the baby were male and the gene were X-linked, but the aliens might not have that...

But not too sure I understand this. Why does that mean most human females are genetic mosaics? Which X chromosome is deactivated is decided independantly by each cell at a certain time during embryonic development, so you could say that there are "patches" of the organism which express th...

As far as I know glucokinase is the hexokinase of the liver cells. It has a higher Km and is regulated a little differently I think.

Ive done a lab where we created a cDNA library I think but it was a long time ago and I dont remember the details so here is a link to something similar. m Thank you, that gave me the answer, which is: add linkers to all the cDNAs. These linkers are short oligonucleotide pieces of dsDNA that contai...

cDNA integration into Plasmid

How is a fragment of cDNA integrated into a plasmid although it does not have complementary extremities due to originating from restrictive endonucleasic digestion?
