", the moral issues concerning genetic engineering, and finally relate these topics to the formation of "the creature" in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. "Genetic engineering is a term applied to techniques that alter the genes (heredity material) or combination of genes in an organism" (World Book 85). Every living organism contains genes. All genes carry information pertaining to the organism's characteristics. By changing a gene in an organism, scientists can produce different traits in an organism and/or its descendants (World Book 85).
DNA fingerprinting and modern genetics can be utilised to document the history evolution. By studying variation among species, scientists are able to learn more about the changes that occurred in species over time. Scientists can compare DNA sequences of similar species and can discover information about their behaviour, relationships and appearances. Discoveries in modern genetics have also provided substantial evidence that species evolved from a common ancestor. There are still many gaps in the understanding the evolutionary process, but modern genetics has successfully proven that living species share a common hereditary system.
Physical anthropology “is in large part, human biology seen from an evolutionary perspective” (Jurmaln, Kilgore & Trevathan, 2011). By this statement, I believe the authors mean that physical anthropology studies human biology with an evolutionary viewpoint rather than a scientific or medical viewpoint. Anthropology, as a broader science, is concerned with and studies human culture and the evolutionary aspects of human biology. Since culture affects human beings and human beings affect culture, the two are intertwined, and it therefore, makes sense to study them together. There are other types of anthropology (cultural anthropology, applied anthropology, archeology, forensic anthropology, and linguistic anthropology), but physical anthropology is the specific area that focuses on the biological link between humans and their culture.
Animal embryo cells develop similarly regardless of species until certain point when differences begin to develop. These markers are evolutionary evidence for when species began to separate. Molecular biology uses the analysis of RNA and DNA to mark the evolution of a species ... ... middle of paper ... ...eography: Designing Studies while Surviving the Process.

This classification system divided organisms into two basic groupings; plants and animals (Utahscience. (2012)). His system however was not without faults and over time new systems were produced in an attempt to revolutionise the classification system. Furthermore, these modern systems were heavily influenced by the evolutionary theory of natural selection identified by Charles Darwin. Today, the classification system is based off Carol Linnaeus’s two kingdom system which is otherwise known as the binomial system (Eclp.com.na.
After extensive scientific research, it is apparent that the theory of evolution is correct. Evolution is the theory that life arose by natural processes at an early stage of the earth’s history and that complex organisms developed from simpler organisms by a process of slow change. It is the idea that new species rise from older species after thousands of years of gradual chemical, environmental, and genetic change. Evolution can be described as the complex processes by which living organisms originated on earth and have been diversified and modified through sustained changes in form and function “Evolution”. Scientists, looking for an explanation to the origin of man and other organisms created this evolutionism theory, which also presented answers to the many asked questions dealing with similarities between species.

What is evolution and how does it work? Evolution is the theory of how one form of life changes into another form. Evolution also is the change of a population’s inherited traits from generation to generation. Evolution helps to explain why an animal, human, and plant looks the way it does and acts the way it does; it gives an explanation of the history of life. Genes come in many varieties and the evolution helps to make it happen.
Evolution, what is evolution? Evolution is the process by which different kinds of organisms have changed and adapted from their earlier forms. Evolution relates so closely to biology because biology is the study of life and evolution is how living organisms have adapted to the environment. My goal for this paper is to explore evolution in mammals, the basic theory of evolution, beliefs of evolution, the main contributors of evolution, evolution in humans, evolution in monkeys, things that humans lost from evolution, as well as extinctions. I became interested in this topic because it hard for me to think at one time humans had tails, or that some species of ape’s DNA is very similar to ours.
