The first automatic gene machine, or gene synthesizing machine, is developed in California. Timeline of Medical Biotechnology. Scientists in Switzerland clone mice. The DNA composition of humans is discovered to be 99 percent similar to that of chimpanzees and gorillas. The first vaccine for rubella is developed. If the class is honors biology, shuffle the cards in any order. Genetically engineered plants resistant to insects, viruses and bacteria are field-tested for the first time. The first vaccine for hepatitis A is developed. It is combined with the measles and mumps vaccines to form the measles/mumps/rubella vaccine in 1971. Marek, who has become infatuated with Lady Claire, is given a horse to rescue his friends. These include: Ob, a gene predisposing to obesity BCR, a breast cancer susceptibility gene BCL-2, a gene associated with apoptosis (programmed cell death) Hedgehog genes (named because of their shape) produce proteins that guide cell differentiation in advanced organisms Vpr, a gene governing reproduction of the HIV virus Linkage studies identify genes for a variety of ailments, including bipolar disorder, cerulean cataracts, melanoma, hearing loss, dyslexia, thyroid cancer, sudden infant death syndrome, prostate cancer and dwarfism. There, the team is introduced to ITC president Robert Doniger and vice-president Steven Kramer. Scientists understand genetic code for the first time. Two research teams culture embryonic stem cells. PCR is recognized as the most revolutionary molecular biology technique of the 1980s. Johnston was invited to see the past for himself, but his group has not returned, and they want the students to go back in time to locate him. FDA approves a personalized prostate cancer medicine that boosts a patient's immune cells to recognize and attack the cancer cells. French scientists discover messenger RNA (mRNA). We begin our timeline at the Bronze Age, as it is difficult to estimate the timeline before this point, such as of the discovery of counting, natural numbers and arithmetic.
