Poetic Genetics

Genetics is a growing field,
The knowledge of our genes.
Discovering our DNA,
And what the findings mean.

How one gene correllates to what,
Our eye colour will be,
How the next gene will set the scene,
For our ethnicity.

It’s now a well-known fact to say,
That gene faulties occur.
These gene variants have been linked,
To various cancers.

Breast cancer’s often classified,
By BRCA mutations.
The BRCA gene is different to,
Healthy comparisons.

The neuroblastoma cancer,
Affects children, though rare,
The MYCN gene is amplified
This knowledge steers healthcare.

By understanding pathogenic
Gene variations,
We can direct many patients,
To effective treatments.

Genetics is a thriving field,
There’s so much more to learn.
This knowledge leads to great healthcare,
And new treatments are earned.
