  • Analysis Of 'GATTACA'

    The name “GATTACA” is composed entirely of the letters found in the biological macromolecule DNA. DNA is made up of four letters: G (Guanine), A (Adenine), T (Thymine), and C (Cytosine). The letters are arranged in the molecule in a very specific way, with A only reacting with T (and vice versa) and G only reacting with C (and vice versa). The biological structure in Jerome’s apartment resembles a DNA strand, also known as a double helix. The components that make up the “steps” would be the…

  • The Benefits Of DNA Fingerprinting

    Reliability: This source was extremely reliable as it was developed and published by encyclopedia Britannica who are highly credited for their well written and professionally polished articles. They authors are extremely knowledgeable and experienced on the subject which therefore makes this a reliable source. Bias: This article is mainly background information on DNA and how DNA fingerprinting works. It gives the scientific reasoning and techniques used throughout the process. It begins to…

  • Mitochondria Experiment

    The mitochondrion is an organelle which produces ATP or energy for all cells. The ATP produced by the mitochondria can be used to measure certain physical activities of fruit flies. In this experiment the development, climbing, flight, and in vitro activity of Drosophilia Melanogaster flies were tested. Three different strands of flies were used. One strand was the wild-type (wt) fly, which had normal mitochondria without any mutations. Another stand was the W501 strain (hybrid) which had…

  • Drosophila Melanogaster Lab Report

    The simple but revolutionary organism Drosophila melanogaster has intricate properties that are studied to find its relations with human genes. Not only is D. melanogaster a model organism for its rapid growth, inexpensive culturing, and easy modifications, the Drosophila can provide more in-depth scientific analysis that can solve human diseases. The model organism D. melanogaster is studied to find ground-breaking research in neurology, sleep, cancer, and drug discovery. The multivariable…

  • Creatine Synthesis

    mixture of three varying amino acids i.e. methionine, glycine, and arginine. Upon entry into the body, creatine works through binding a phosphate molecule in order to create creatine phosphate. This creatine phosphate provides its phosphate to adenine Di-phosphate (ADP) in order to recreate…

  • DNA In Forensic Science

    sugar components are constant in all persons and, therefore, biologists today utilize the nitrogenous base component since it helps in distinguishing different individuals. Indeed, this base is responsible for nucleotides that contain; cytonise, adenine, guanine or even thymine whose combination determines the exact coding capacity and function of the DNA as applied in forensic science. Today, DNA in forensic science is…

  • Gene Technology

    material, DNA technology. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is a macromolecule recognized as a nucleic acid. Which is formed like a curled double helix and is made of a long thread of varying sugars and phosphate groups, adjacent with nitrogenous keys (adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine). It 's arranged into composition called chromosomes and contained inside the nucleus of cells. DNA holds…

  • Biological Macromolecules Research Paper

    Lesson 5: Structures, Functions and Roles of Biological Molecules and Enzyme Activity in Metabolism Biological Molecules/Macromolecules Plants produce their own food through photosynthesis. They manufacture mainly carbohydrates (glucose) as a source of food of many higher organisms in the food chain. It is one of the many biological molecules present in plants and needed by animals. Biological molecules are macromolecules composed of many monomers (polymer) connected through a covalent bond…

  • Nucleus Research Paper

    Nucleus In each cell, there is one nucleus. It is in the center of the cell, and takes up about ten percent of the cell’s volume. It is a large, oval-shaped structure bound by a double membrane called the nuclear envelope. Inside the nucleus, are organelles called nucleoli, which assemble RNA and synthesize ribosomal subunits. Throughout the inside of the nucleus, is a substance called the nucleoplasm, which suspends the nucleus’ structures. The nucleus controls the activities of the cell to…

  • Gene Therapy And Cancer Cells Essay

    Gene Therapy & Cancer Cells Gene therapy is often defined as a treatment that uses genes to cure or prevent diseases. Genes, DNA, and protein are all involved with each other, therefore, in many immune diseases, if one fails your whole immune system could eventually fail. This treatment is relatively new; hence it is still a pretty risky experimentation since it involves getting genes into cancer cells. Gene Therapy is often involved in serious cancer cell treatments; its main purpose is to try…
