Can you combine human and avian DNA?
No, the genetic make up of each species DNA are completely different so that it is not compatible for combination. Not to mention the obvious ethical and moral parameters that would be violated.
i think its possible seeing how in Britain they were mixing a cows embryo with a human DNA its possibel if the brake through is a succes than we will probably be able to do it with other animals
I guess that humans would have the ability to put those genes together and the humans would survive, but it's still sort of immoral. Still, I wouldn't mind being part avian. Anyone know where I could give up my body for it?
i am currently doing research in the field of DNA recombination and can say with absolute certainty that it is possible. just to clear up a few things, unlike what others have said, our DNA is incredibly similar to other species. our DNA makes up genes, not the other way aroung (nucleotide base pairs make up our DNA). a lot of people don't realize it but DNA recombination is prevelent today, all of the insulin a diabetic takes is created by bacteria that have the DNA that creates insulin from a human. it fits perfectly. i take it you got this idea from the series Maximum Ride (I'm a fan), and the science in the book is completely real.
A recombinant life form is created when the genetic material that is produced by segments of DNA from different sources are joined to produce recombinant DNA. In simpler terms, it's when two sets of DNA are grafted together producing a hybrid of the two organisms that the DNA was extracted from. Normally, one set of DNA will be grafted with the other when it is still a living organism. An example could be avian DNA…
Yes and no. The only distinction between humans and animals is in the eye of the beholder. However, viable DNA through either natural or artificial methods of reproduction can only be created, by modern knowledge, between members of the same Genus (it's speculated that this could be extended to members of the same Family, but evidence for this is limited at best). Using this information, it can be inferred that human DNA can combine with…
Some people ask can you mix human and animal dna. My answer is yes you could. As long a you took thprocedure slowly and combined the dna one step and small amount at a time it is possible to mix the dna. My question is would the human gain attributes from the animals dna such as enhanced hearing, sight, sense of smell, a tail, and ears or something like that. If scientists can find a…
Can you combine wolf and human DNA through genetic modification or gene splicing and is it successful?
The only thing I can add at this point, is: Human DNA/ Chimp DNA 98% match, versus Human DNA/ Rhesus Monkey DNA 95% match. Although all living creatures have DNA and share many similarities, the similarities become less and less as the evolutionary process takes place. Therefore, Human DNA/ Jellyfish DNA = (60%?) match?
