I am making a human stem cell from its molecular components(just pretending to do it right now but might be able to do later in life). I have extracted my DNA and formed a liposome. I have the DNA replicating in an incubator at 98.6° F, 5% CO2, and 95% humidity. The temperature is because it is human. The CO2 is so that it has a stable pH. The humidity is so it does not get dehydrated. I have calculated how much DNA I will have in a week. Here are my calculations: 8 2/3 hours for replication(10 base pairs per second because a process always goes as slow as the slowest enzyme) Doesn't matter how many replication origins there are. 8 2/3 hours per round = 26/3 24 hours per day divided by 26/3 hours per round is the same as 24/1 * 3/26 That gives you 72/26 = 36/13 = 2 10/13 rounds per day That is the number of rounds of replication for 1 day. Multiply by 7 to get 252/13 = 19 5/13 rounds per week Round that to 19 Than remember that DNA replicates in powers of 2 2^19 = 524288 total chromosomes from 1. Is that only approximate? Also I am planning to do a microarray analysis of differentiated cells and types of stem cells against my totipotent stem cells(ES cells without hurting an embryo) and I don't want to run into epigenetic problems so should I have a biopsy done of all my tissues and then be treated for any health problems that result such as ulcers and heart problems? I mean if thats the case I will have my own tissue to separate into cells and won't run into epigenetic problems. If not than I might run into epigenetic problems. Like one person's cardiac muscle might have a different amount of protein than mine and thats a problem.
