Due Week 8 and worth 120 points
Gene technology carries with it social and ethical implications—many of which engender personal views and discussion.
Write a four to six (4 to 6) page paper on your chosen topic. Organize your paper into sections corresponding to the following requirements:
Biological basis. Describe the technology. Discuss what it accomplishes. Elaborate on the scientific principles that make this technology possible. Your goal in this section of the paper is to show the instructor that you understand the underlying science behind the technology. Describe how exactly the technology works. Discuss the biological principles that underlie this technology.Social and ethical implications. Without disclosing your personal view about this technology, provide an analysis of its social and ethical implications. State the ethical concerns apparent in the use of this technology. Discuss the benefits and risks. Your goal in this section is to look at all sides of the issue. In the next section, you will give your opinion. Personal viewpoint. In the previous section, your goal was to be as objective as possible, to look at all sides of the issues. In this section, your goals are to give a personal opinion about the technology and provide a justification of that opinion. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment, in addition to the course text. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. The body of the paper must have in-text citations that correspond to the references. Integrate all sources into your paper using proper techniques of quoting, paraphrasing and summarizing, along with proper use of in-text citations to credit your sources.

Gene Technology Name: Instructor: Institution: Date: Introduction Genetic technology as a field is vast and largely unexplored, just like the deep seas. Much of it is usually speculated while the advancements made are just but a scratch on the surface. The reason for its mystery is that it is a new field currently being explored, and therefore, the full potential of its possibilities remains unclear. Therefore, its absolute risks and benefits exist. The field of medicine has quickly embraced gene technology in its pursuit of useful bacteria that can help in the development of the body. Considering that it is something to do with the alteration of the natural creation of organisms, gene technology also has some serious ethical and social implications. This applies primarily, while looking at it from a religious perspective. Discussion Genetic technology is the practical applications of knowledge in molecular biology and the latest trends in technology to modify the natural states of the genes by the addition of new traits into them. This process usually takes p
