  • The Foundation Of Biology: The History Of Cell Biology

    This enables us to have a very detailed understanding of the tissues and organisms that cells make. The foundation of modern biology was articulated in 1839 by Schleiden and Schwann. This is even before Darwin’s theory and Mendel. In 1838 Theodor Schwann and Matthias Schledein had took the slides they had from plants to look further into them since Schwann heard Schledein say they had a nuclei. Schwann then proceeded to put a book out with his observations that excluded Schledein. Schwann had three conclusions. The cell is the unit of structure, physiology, and organization in living things. Then the cell retains a twofold life as a separate object and a building block in the creation of organisms. Lastly cells form by free-cell formation, which is similar to the development of spontaneous generation. There was a quick growth of molecular biology in the mid-20th century. Then it furthered its expansion in the 1950’s. In 1951 George Otto Gey found the first continuous cell line. It was from a woman Henrietta Lacks whom had cervical cancer, and was the turning point in the study of cell biology. There are so many facts leading to our present day knowledge. In 1840 the realization of sperm and eggs for reproduction are cells, and then in 1879 the description chromosome behavior during mitosis. This lead for Hamilton…

  • The Importance Of Biology

    Biology is the science of life or living matter in all forms and phenomena, especially with reference to origin, growth, reproduction, structure and behavior. Living beings have the desire to discover who they truly are and how they came to be the person that they are today. Many people have specific beliefs in an ultimate being that rules over all else, but most of these beliefs cannot be proven. The study of biology is based upon facts and hypotheses that can be tested and supported. Without…

  • Biology Study Guide

    Name: Prior to Monday, 9/21/2015, students should read the “Study Guide to Effectively Using Integrating Concepts in Biology (ICB)”, an introductory resource for this year’s electronic textbook, and answer the following discussion questions. Responses should be uploaded to Canvas by 11:59PM on 9/20/15. A PDF version of this guide is posted to Canvas, and can also be found in the e-text. 1. The ICB text is organized around five “big ideas” in biology. List them, then define the term that…

  • The Importance Of DNA In Biology

    One of the greatest gifts from God to humankind is biology. From the Greek words which mean the study of life, biology is a branch of science that focuses on how living things works. For example, how does a tiny human being turns into a full-grown adult in just matter of time? Why are there twins that look exactly alike but there are some that are not exactly alike? Thanks to biology, scientists now are able to answers these questions. It is all in the genes or more accurately the…

  • Personal Statement Of Studying Biology

    I have always found enjoyment in discovering obscure and unusual facts about the body, then going onto tell others about my discovery. For this reason, biology has always had a magnetic effect on me. I find it incredible how life is in essence just a combination of molecules which then come together to create another more complex molecule, and so on, eventually leading to an organism as complex as the human body. Studying biology to A2-Level, I have been introduced to biological processes which…

  • Structural Biology Reflection

    The first time I learned about structural biology was when I took Comprehensive Biochemistry I during my senior year at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. What was intriguing was how quickly I learned the concepts, and how easy it was for me to see conformational changes in three-dimensional space. I have always been a visual-oriented person, and until senior year of college I found that it was hard to find areas of research in biochemistry that utilize a person’s ability to analyze…

  • The Importance Of Chemistry And Biology

    The longer I spend studying chemistry and biology, the more I find patterns and overlaps between the two disciplines. As I’ve matured in my studies, I have found the boundaries between the sciences to blur, which has led to my desire to do biochemistry. The course encompasses several science disciplines from biophysics and bioengineering to cellular biology and organic chemistry and looks at these from an analytical and quantitative standpoint. The diversity and interdisciplinary nature of…

  • AP Biology Summer Assignment: Survival Of The Sickest

    Justin Dubler August 31, 2015 Mrs. Werle Period #1-2 AP Biology Summer Assignment Survival of the Sickest Big Idea 1: The process of evolution drives the diversity and unit of life. Passage 1: “Our genetic makeup has been adapting in response to where we live and what the weather’s like. The food we eat has evolved to cope with the organisms that eat it, and we’ve evolved to cope with that. We’ve looked at the way we’ve evolved to resist or manage the threat posed by specific infectious…

  • My Choice Of Marine Biology

    future is marine biology. I am very interested in marine biology because I 've always been fascinated by the ocean and the creatures that live in it. Since I was young I found it strange how we know more about the depths of space than we know about our ocean. The mystery intrigued me and to this day I still want to pursue a career in marine biology. Also another reason I chose marine biology is because of the episode in Seinfeld where George has to pretend he is a marine biologist. In order to…

  • Central Dogma Of Molecular Biology

    Possible Modifications of Central Dogma of molecular Biology Introduction The central dogma of molecular biology is describes the transfer of genetic information within a biological system and was first stated by Francis Crick in 1956. The central dogma is the flow of genetic information as ‘’DNA makes the RNA and RNA makes the protein.’’All biological cells with few exceptions in some follow this rule. This flow takes place through three fundamental processes: replication, transcription and…
