  Geneticist
Geneticists are the leaders of the last frontier of biology.
Geneticists that work in this field are involved in their work from beginning to end, although this could sometimes mean a lifetime of work, literally.
Geneticists have the opportunity to be laboratory detectives and use DNA sampling to insure that the right person is convicted of the crime.

 Doug and Bill
The geneticist, not being inclined toward hard work (as is true for most geneticists) pursued a less strenuous (and less expensive) approach.
That evening, to Doug's dismay, the geneticist concluded that steering wheels were responsible for turning the car and, in addition, that he had identified the worker responsible for installing the steering wheels.
Emboldened by his successes, the next morning the geneticist tied of the hands of an individual dressed in a suit and carrying a briefcase in one hand and a laser pointer in the other (he was a vice president).

 Genetic Health - Breast and Ovarian Cancer: Genetic Diseases in Ashkenazi Jews   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The founder theory is of particular interest to geneticists because they theorize that even if just a few of these founders had a mutation, the mutation would become amplified in the population.
This theory is supported by the fact that today people of Ashkenazi Jewish descent have a higher incidence of a number of specific mutations, for example mutations in the genes that increase the risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer, and mutations that cause the childhood neurological disease Tay-Sachs disease.
Geneticists theorize that the people who carried the Tay-Sachs gene may have survived better under ghetto conditions, whereas people without the gene would be more likely to die.

Some geneticists are breeders (quantitative genetics) who produce superior plants and animals through selective breeding.
Private corporations hire geneticists to develop such things as new seeds and new varieties of fruit trees, vegetables, grains, and trees.
To be a geneticist, earn a bachelor's degree in animal science, biochemistry, agronomy, plant science, horticulture, poultry science, dairy science, forestry, or fisheries and wildlife.

 Genetics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After the discovery of the genetic code and such tools of cloning as restriction enzymes, the avenues of investigation open to geneticists were greatly broadened.
Some classical genetic ideas have been supplanted with the mechanistic understanding brought by molecular discoveries, but many remain intact and in use, such as Mendel's laws.
Physicians who are trained as Geneticists diagnose, treat, and counsel patients with genetic disorders or syndromes.

GENETICIST: Assuming no mutational errors occur during the production of sperm and egg cells, there was approximately a 1-in-70,000,000,000,000 chance that you would have been an identical clone of your sister.
GENETICIST: Incestuous relationships, as well as being frowned upon by most of society, are also disadvantageous from a biological point of view.
GENETICIST: Alas, it appears that this is because you are the second child.

 Visiting a geneticist
A visit to the geneticist is often arranged to either confirm the diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), or to further categorise the affected individual into one of its sub-types.
In addition, if relevant, the geneticist will wish to obtain information as to whether there are other affected family members in order to obtain an accurate family tree.
Remember that the geneticist is used to seeing families with inherited conditions and if relevant, it is useful to bring as many family members as possible (check with the department first) the consultation can take up to an hour including the investigations.

 Geneticist advocates sex selection - theage.com.au
Tuesday 20 May 2003, 4:05 PM A leading Hungarian geneticist has stirred controversy by advocating a technique for selecting the sex of babies in order to reverse the falling birth rate in this central European country.
The geneticist said most Hungarians who already have two or three children of the same sex would have another child if they were certain this would be of the opposite sex.
The geneticist has a technique that selects the sperm by their chromosomes prior to artificial insemination, thereby determining the child's sex.

 eMJA: The clinical geneticist and the "new genetics"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Clinical geneticists can be a valuable resource for doctors who need advice about whether genetic testing is available, which tests to pursue, how to access testing services, and how to interpret and act on test results.
The main clinical components of the clinical geneticist's role are set out in Box 2 and reasons for referral to a clinical geneticist in Box 3.
Clinical geneticists and genetic counsellors can assist, but many doctors are unaware of clinical genetics as a medical specialty and the role a clinical geneticist can play in patient management, and have never referred a patient to a clinical genetics service.

 National Geographic Emerging Explorers: Geneticist, Anthropologist
By collecting blood samples from thousands of men living in isolated tribes around the world and analyzing their DNA, 34-year-old geneticist Spencer Wells and his colleagues discovered that all humans alive today can be traced back to a small tribe of hunter-gatherers who lived in Africa 60,000 years ago.
In 1989 he was accepted to pursue a doctorate in biology under evolutionary geneticist Richard Lewontin at Harvard University.
Working with population geneticist Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza at Stanford, Wells learned to decipher human history by reading the "documents" encoded in the DNA of living humans.

 Clinical Geneticist
Clinical Geneticists evaluate, diagnose and treats genetic diseases - preparing and reviewing case histories and clinical records, and interviewing patients or parents to obtain clinical and family histories and constructs pedigrees.
In addition to serving as consultant on genetic conditions and diseases, Clinical Geneticists formulate plans and procedures for medical genetics services.
They schedule the use of medical genetics clinics, facilities and laboratories and instruct interns and residents in the methods and procedures for diagnosis and management of genetic disorders.

A University of Alberta geneticist says he'll begin testing Monday a tuft of hair that some residents of Teslin, Yukon say belongs to a sasquatch.
They said the creature was moving fast and left behind a huge footprint, twice the size of a human's, and a small patch of hair.
Wildlife geneticist Dave Coltman volunteered to test the DNA in the hair, but admits the hair may turn out to belong to a bison.

 Moral Development [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Only in the latter 19th century did moral development revive as a lively research field in social science led by the cognitive-developmental approach of Jean Piaget and Lawrence Kohlberg.
Newfound credibility for this effort was garnered by abandoning the traditional geneticist position in moral development, which depicted even sophisticated moral reasoning as a physiologically, age-determined phenomenon.
With a modern psychology divided into environmentalists or geneticists on development, a cognitivist revival of the social-interactionist, moral adaptivity perspective was a crucial innovation.

However, the school curriculum was mainly classical, so that by the age of 16 Pontecorvo could read and enjoy Aristophanes in Greek, a feature which almost certainly contributed to the meticulous clarity of his English.
He went on to study in the Faculty of Agriculture in Pisa, where his interest in genetics was aroused by E. Avanzi, a plant geneticist, whose assistant Pontecorvo later became.
He then moved on to a cattle breeding post in Florence, where he stayed for eight years.

 Geneticist for a Day
In that spirit, I developed two activities that focus on recent contributions of a couple of real people that my students can identify with- the work of Nancy Wexler and Huntington's Chorea; and the work of Mary Claire-King and the breast cancer gene BRCA-1.
The activities are "dry lab" enactments of partial pedigree and genetic analysis studies that allow the kids to walk at least a quarter mile in the shoes of real geneticists.
These dry labs lend to extensions using electrophoretic marker simulations and special projects around cell receptors and autoimmunity as well.
