The Science of the Genetic Modification of a Chicken

The Science Behind the Genetic Modification of a Chicken Olivia Dodd So how will this be done? Because of fairly recent advances in the study of genetics, people can now pick out what their child will look like if they wanted to. Also genes that carry heredity-linked diseases can be made inactive. Ect.

People can pretty much customize their own kid. Thanks to a genome map, which is a map showing where specific genes are located on a DNA strand; scientists can easily turn on or off specific chicken genes to change the animals outward appearance. Teeth This picture shows a normal chicken embryo (left) and a mutant one. The

mutant chicken embryo has developed A tooth structures similar to those found in embryotic alligators. By having a map of the chickens genome, scientists can find the exact location of this gene and switch it on. This is what a full grown chickensaurus

would look like equipped with teeth similar to a microraptor The picture to the left contrasts a normal chickens skeleton with what it is predicted to look like once it has undergone genetic transformation. The chickens once fused wing will be separated into dinosaur resembling phalanges. Next the gene that

fuses the vertebra together will be turned off so that the chicken will grow a dinosaur-like tail. The picture above is a model of a Bambiraptor, the dinosaur that a chickensaurus will most resemble. Heres a prefect picture depicting the difference in skeletal structure once the genetic transformations have taken place.
