  4. DNA analysis and genetics testing can be done after death.
  5. Microarray’s are used by DNA sequencing companies like 23 and Me to provide the customer with information about a predetermined set of genes or DNA sequences which they may possess because they bind to corresponding genes on the microarray.
  6. Olympic athletes are now tested for EPO in their urine but recombinant EPO and natural EPO cannot be distinguished by the test.

  9. Which of the following living organisms have a GMO counterpart?
  10. In 2013 what genetics testing company came under scrutiny for allegedly incorporating eugenic ideals by promoting the idea of prescreening their egg and sperm donor DNA for genetic defects so customers could avoid those samples?
  11. Most gene therapy vectors under current use are disarmed viruses.
  12. EPO is a hormone which naturally increases the number of red blood cells in the blood.
  13. Some famous world cyclists who won the tour de France admitted using EPO illegally to boost performance.
  14. Which of the following is true about EPO?
  15. Gene silencing involves antisense molecules, ribozymes and RNA interference to block translation of mRNAs.
  16. Which of the following is true regarding microarray structure, function and their use to relay genetic information.
  17. Which of the following anatomical sites being tested or are targets for future gene therapies?
  18. Many of the early set-backs and deaths in the use of gene therapy involved;
