Genetics

Paper details:

Part One: How has increased knowledge about growth been applied to improving the resistance of some plants to pests and allowed those plants to be used in non-native areas? What are the positive and negative impacts of such applications?

Part Two: Farmed salmon can be genetically modified to reach market size in half the time of normal fish, and cost half as much to feed. However, entire populations of wild fish could be endangered by mating with bio-engineered fish that are released into the wild, with disastrous consequences for the ecosystem. Why do you predict this is the case? Use your knowledge of genetics, and of genetic disease to explain how genes in isolated populations can impact larger populations (25 marks) 5 Marks each for orginization, ideas, use of proper terminology, creativity, and answering all aspects of the questions
