Evaluate this criticism in light of what you know about population genetics and evolution distinguishing between somatic gene therapy and germ-line gene therapy. Select two answers (one about somatic gene therapy and one about germ-line gene therapy). Somatic gene therapy cures individuals with defective alleles and increases the likelihood that less fit alleles will enter and be maintained in the gene pool. Somatic gene therapy cures individuals with defective alleles and decreases the likelihood that less fit alleles will enter and be maintained in the gene pool. Germ-line therapy could lead to the limited removal of a defective allele from a gene lineage which would have a negligible impact on the course of human evolution. Germ-line therapy could lead to the widespread removal of a defective allele from a gene lineage which would have a considerable impact on the course of human evolution Show less
