Which would come first, genetic screening or gene therapy? Explain. ___________________________________



Genetic screening is a process of exploring a person's genome to determine the risk of expressing a genetic disorder or the possibility of passing it to its offspring. Gene therapy is a process of fixing a defective or lacking gene or adding a new gene into the genome. The process that would come first is the genetic screening because we must observe the genome and its defects to know how to repair the defective sequence or even to potentially add one to the genome.
