Today Thursday 28, January 2009. We were assigned a punnet sqaure sheet which talks about hybrid( hetrozygous ), purebred ( homozygous ) (Tt, tt ). The punnet sqaure sheet used spongebob as a object and we needed to describe his genotypes and phenotypes, phenotypes are physical apperance such as brown eyes, freckles etc and genotype is the makeup of genes and cells,allels that do not ussually show on your physical apperance.
The last 30 minutes we talked about cloning and some of the religous veiws related to cloning. And the morals. Also the successful clone of a sheep which was named Dolly during the class we also talked about the clone of a specific person and if it would share the same emotions as him/her or would he/she have the same actions. We finally concluded that if the clone grew up in the same backround as the particular person there is a slight chance that the clone would have the same behavior, And how there are many protesters and what is the reason for cloning since the world is over populated. A think the biggest part of the conversation was the emotions, actions and other things although a classmate asked why we could not clone humans.
The two pictures are... Dolly the cloned sheep on the left and a fairly simple Punnet sqaure on the right
