Assume that you discovered Caenorhabditis elegans that crawl significantly slower than others. How would you determine whether this behavior was due to an injury from the environment or to an inherited trait? A goal of using animal models is to explain the molecular detail of specific behaviors encoded in the human brain. How would you compare the developmental biology experiments on memory and learning using the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, as evidence about the evolution of a human behavior?
In this week’s Special Topics, we are looking at precision medicine. Briefly, what is precision medicine? Discuss one example from our text or outside research. What are the pros and cons of your example? Focus on any social or ethical challenges in your response.
