  • genetics
  • The Friday afternoon session of the American Philosophical Association meeting from which I am blogging actually had at the least three events of interest to philosophers of science: one on race in population genetics, one on laws in the life sciences, and one on the strange combination of (metaethical) antirealism, evolution and genetic determinism. (blogspot.com)
  • New paradigms are needed if we are to succeed in unravelling multifactorial genetic causation at higher levels of physiological function and so to explain the phenomena that genetics was originally about. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • genes
  • call this a ' supergene ', a chromosomal region with related genes that are inherited together due to genetic linkage. (blogspot.com)
  • Evolutionary psychologists not only reject genetic determinism, but have emphasized that they believe that it is actually nonsensical to try to talk about genes without discussing the environment in which the genes exist. (human-nature.com)
  • Around the same time, genetic studies by Bruce Cattanach and Michael Kirk showed that imprinted genes were not evenly distributed across the whole genome but located in particular genomic regions ( Cattanach and Kirk, 1985 ). (elifesciences.org)
  • Why genetic determinism can't simply be disproven It is a mindset, an attitude to life and to people: In popular culture, the thought is expressed as "It's not me, it's my genes. (uncommondescent.com)
  • variability
  • The objective of this article is to present some possible interpretations for the great variability in pelvic incidence under both normal and pathological conditions and to further understand the determinants of pelvic incidence from the perspective of the functional requirements for bipedalism and genetic backgrounds via a literature review. (biomedcentral.com)
  • This great variability may also serve as a further reminder that the sagittal profile, bipedal locomotion mode, and genetic background of every individual are unique and specific, and clinicians should avoid making universally applying broad generalizations of pelvic incidence.

  • ancestry
  • Or that the population genetic landscape of Latin America can not be understood without taking into account the varied quanta of African, European, and Amerindian ancestry which defines particular locales. (gnxp.com)
  • From this DNA evidence, Parabon Labs created a snapshot, the DA explained, that "accurately predicts genetic ancestry, eye, hair and skin color and face shape," but he also noted that these are "scientific approximations and not exact replicas. (thenewinquiry.com)
  • racism
  • Indigenous peoples have raised concerns, including a lack of benefit to their communities, a diversion of attention and resources from non-genetic causes of health disparities and racism in health care, a reinforcement of "victim-blaming" approaches to health inequalities, and possible misuse of blood and tissue samples. (springer.com)
  • common
  • A highly significant association with IMF composition on SSC14 was replicated in both muscles, highlighting the existence of a common genetic determinism, but we also observed the existence of a few associations whose magnitude and significance varied between LD and GM muscles. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Simply
  • I no longer have to struggle with trying to keep my idealilogy, it's simply genetic, and now that I know this, as the doctor stated, it will be easier to make me happy! (uncommondescent.com)
  • book
  • In this book, Ted Peters explores the fallacies of the "gene myth" and presents a resounding array of arguments against this kind of all-encompassing genetic determinism. (worldcat.org)
  • individuals
  • Four decades after the publication of that dystopia, Robert Nozick[ 2 ] developed another futuristic scenario, the genetic supermarket, to prompt discussion of the moral implications of eugenics conducted not by the state, but at the level of individuals. (biomedcentral.com)
  • nature
  • Are they telling us that there is no chance to escape from Nature, that Nurture is powerless in the face of our genetic tethers? (human-nature.com)
  • I then assess whether the 'digital' nature of DNA sequences guarantees primacy in causation compared to non-DNA inheritance, whether it is meaningful or useful to refer to genetic programs, and the role of high-level (downward) causation. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • children
  • Is our society prepared to decided on issues about procreation such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, or genetic engineering such as "designer children," or selective abortion? (worldcat.org)
  • How can we protect children - both born and unborn - who are conceived in these ways from being regarded as merchandise in the expanding marketplace of genetic services? (worldcat.org)
  • particular
  • If these deterministic assumptions are false, as we maintain they clearly are, then these particular arguments against genetic modification lose their logical force. (biomedcentral.com)
  • major
  • The resulting genealogies are then aligned with genetic data at a major North American DNA databank in order to facilitate multi-generational analyses of hereditary disease transmission. (councilforresponsiblegenetics.org)
  • List
  • So the three of us ordered our genome analytics kits: we spat into the vials, mailed our body liquids to the lab, and a few weeks later got back the long list of genetic markers together with their interpretation. (thenewinquiry.com)
  • data
  • That being said, the piece does reflect implicitly the almost oracular powers conferred to genetic data in the imaginings of the public . (gnxp.com)
  • approach
  • As a libertarian, Nozick defended a laissez-faire approach to genetic modification, arguing that the government should not interfere with the market forces that influence procreation. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Thus, we combined N stress modelling with a genetic approach. (archives-ouvertes.fr)
  • Person
  • A unique study of twins separated at birth finds a genetic link to the age at which a person first engages in sexual intercourse. (newscientist.com)
