Some issues could be Cloning and the self-healing systems. Ethically, cloning has been a major issue, mainly because most people believe that if they were to get too far into the process they could somehow use this to help people live longer. And for some people, religiously and morally its just not right. When it comes to who, it will vary depending on how big the projects or research is. It could range from an ordinary citizen to the president.

what's cloning? @GuitarNerd2015

@proud_yemeniah_ Cloning means to make a copy of something. In this case, were talking about making a clone/copy of DNA or a human cell. What I believe @GuitarNerd2015 is trying to say is that cloning other human beings will definitely bring more population to this world (since there will be doubles). Although, there might be others who would be against cloning because they have the mentality that YOU have a purpose in this world, you shouldn't have to create a second "you". Basically, they'll have the "stay true to yourself" mindset. Hopefully I cleared things up for you. Feel free to mention me for more help or if you have any questions or concerns. Btw don't forget to fan and medal me! :)

Oh okay but I don't wanna be talking about cloning... because it just doesn't make sense to me.. it doesn't seem realistic anyways can you help me with coming up with something for this discussion @shelby1290

Okay, what ideas have you thought of so far?

First of all, what do you know about the human genome? Have learned about this before?

are they cells?

Wikipedia says...... The human genome is the complete set of nucleic acid sequence for humans (Homo sapiens), encoded as DNA within the 23 chromosome pairs in cell nuclei and in a small DNA molecule found within individual mitochondria. Human genomes include both protein-coding DNA genes and noncoding DNA Which means that the human genome is a set of DNA which makes up human beings.

DNA carries genetic and physical information about ourselves.

For the first part of your question, (one societial issue that may come from human genome) I believe that you should stick with GuitarNerd's idea on Cloning or Self-Healing. Since we are evolving as human beings and science is revealing more and more to us each day. There could possibly be an instance were will get to make clones of other human beings. I don't know the SPECIFICS behind that. But i'm sure it includes taking your DNA and using it to create another human being. Therefore making you the same.

For the second part of your question, you need to consider realistic problems that could result from conducting research on cloning. As I said before some examples are... some people will disagree with it because of their religion or it can result in more over-populated countries. Which can lead to disease, illnesses, etc. You really need to THINK about this part

Third part, who can decide to start the human genome project? That's your choice. Whether it be the government, your family, yourself, Batman lol idk again it's your choice

@proud_yemeniah_ am i making sense so far?

  • shelby1290
Btw if you didn't know already, human cloning is real. It just isn't talked about much.

Huh, so they like make another you :/ @shelby1290

@proud_yemeniah_ yes

Lol so I can tell a scientist to make another me

I never heard of that
shelby1290
  • shelby1290
Haha yes! I don't know exactly how advanced modern day scientists are at making clones for people. Science is always evolving. Possibly in the future the first human clone will be created. Lol maybe it will happen in the year 2067 (i made that up) although research on human cloning must be very expensive and time consuming if you really think about it
