    “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1) and I believe the word was ATGCU. The primary or canonical, nucleobases are cytosine (DNA and RNA), guanine (DNA and RNA), adenine (DNA and RNA), thymine (DNA) and uracil (RNA), abbreviated as C, G, A, T, and U, respectively with their ability to selectively bind formed the basis of life on earth. In 2012 with the discovery of CRISPR/Cas9 science acquired the ability to insert, delete and replace DNA…

  • How Does Photosynthesis Affect The Synthesis Of Chloroplast

    Photosynthesis Pine Needle Lab Karthik Ravishankar Rock Ridge High School Background Information Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use water, carbon dioxide, and sunlight and turn it into glucose with a byproduct of oxygen in the chloroplast. Chloroplast is located in the cell membrane of a plant cell. Inside the chloroplast, there are small disks called thylakoids which are located in the stroma of the chloroplast. Stacks of thylakoid cells are called granum.…

  • Differences In Genetic Research

    The genetic information in an organism’s DNA ultimately determines its traits; however, if this genetic information is somehow altered (the arrangement of nucleotides changed) new traits can appear or a deformity might occur. When a cell fails to replicate properly and DNA that is produced is not identical to that of the original (as a result of changes made for various reasons), a mutation has occurred. Failures in replication can be caused by a large number of reasons, but some of the more…

  • Characteristics Of Designer Babies

    Designer babies are the new way to bioengineer offspring, to change the different genetics of a child. Scientists will be able to eventually use transcription and translation to change the different traits like; gender, appearance, intelligence, diseases, and personality. There is much controversy on whether designer babies should exist because of ethical controversy and designer babies causing additional racism in our country. Only the wealthy will be able to have designer babies, and will…

  • Dna Synthesis Essay

    four organic bases which are called nucleotides. There’s also deoxyribose which is a sugar that is in a double helix shape. DNA molecules stores information in a code which is created by the sequence of their four nitrogenous bases that includes Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine and Thymine. Also, DNA is often referred to as the double-helix. RNA is a ribonucleic…

  • The Four Components Of Cell Membrane

    packaged into what we know as chromosomes. Chromosomes contain DNA and proteins that carry all the genetic information of an organism. The nucleus is also the site for DNA and RNA synthesis. The mitochondria, which is a bilayer structure that generates adenine triphosphate (ATP), a form of energy (SparkNotes: Intracellular Components). Peroxisome is also included in the intracellular organelles. This is a single-membrane structure that is found in all eukaryotic cells and functions to break down…

  • The Importance Of Fats In Biology

    nucleotides are then joined in a phosphodiester linkage. A phosphate group links the sugar of the nucleotide. B. 1. The two different nitrogenous bases are the pyrimidines and the purines. Purines are double ringed structures. Of the five nitrogen bases, adenine (A) and guanine (G) are purines. Pyrimidines are single ring structures. Cytosine (C), thymine (T), and uracil (U) are pyrimidines. Pyrimidines have six carbon rings and nitrogen atoms. Purines are bigger because of a six member ring…

  • The Chronological Lifespan Of S. Cerevisiae Mutants Lacking Telomere

    Chronological lifespan of S. cerevisiae mutants lacking telomere capping protein Cdc13 and Exo1 Lay summary For over 25 years, yeast has been used as a model to understand cellular processes such as how; DNA is repaired and produced, also for understanding different aspects of the cell lifecycle and principle molecular processes in eukaryotes (the same type of cells that make up humans, animals and plants). Because yeast can be easily grown until it dies in a relatively short time, it is an…
