Personal Reflection


As you know by now, genetic disorders and diseases can cause problems for people who have them. For the final step of your project, you will need to write a paragraph with your response to this question:

Genetic testing is widely available today to help couples determine what their chances are of having a baby with a genetic defect. Suppose that you and your partner had this testing done and found out that you had a 50/50 chance of having a baby with the disease you studied. Knowing this, would you choose to try to have a baby? Explain why or why not.

Congratulations!! You've completed your Research Project! Hopefully, you've learned more about genetic disorders and diseases and have a better understanding of genetics and the research process.
