The questions is upload PDF, Please answer these questions by utilizing the given resources ,and any other reputable sources of information. Submit only your answers (without the text of the questions) in a document (DOC or PDF format only) in the Turnitin submission link below. will grade on completeness, so be sure to answer every question for full credit. Remember, all work that you turn in must be in your own words – you will NOT earn credit for copying and pasting text from websites or from the work of other students.

-use your own word please and DO NOT COPY ANYTHING ON LINE! I will be turn in this home work in turn it in! Please Use easy grammar and use your own word to answer all these questions.

-if you need books to answer the questions I will sensed to you.(use book!!) down below!!!!!

-use easy grammar and easy to understand! Please also use complete sentences

Genetics and Epigenetics

Introduction:

Living organisms are a product of both the genetics they inherit and the environment in which they grow, develop, and live. In this module, you will learn more about the structure and function of genetic material (DNA) and will explore the role of the epigenome on gene expression.

By the end of this module, you should be able to:

– Explain how the genome serves as the instructions for making proteins

– Describe the epigenome and explain how it influences gene expression

– Explain how mutations affect genetic material

– Discuss how genetic testing is done and identify the benefits, risks, and limitations of genetic testing.

This 7-minute video describes point mutations and provides several real life examples of these mutations.

What is Epigenetics? (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

This 5-minute video describes the epigenome – the set of tags that sit on top of the genome and serve to turn genes on or off. It also provides an explanation of how the epigenome is influenced by inheritance and the environment.
