    such as exposure to parenting style and peer selection, contributing to antisocial behavior (pp. 520-521) When these results are contrasted with the 70% variance that Bouchard (1990) attributed to genetic influence on IQ, it seems likely that aptitude and ability are influenced very highly by genetic traits and that personality and character traits are influenced by a combination or interaction of genotype and environmental…

  • African Leopard Essay

    The African Leopard is becoming more threatened as humans encroach on their habitat and poach them for their coats. A black variation of the African leopard exists, leaving some individuals with a much darker coat. The allele associated with this phenotype is “a” recessive allele and shows presence in an individual when it is homozygous. The normal patterned leopard coat is expressed by the dominant “A” allele and shows presence in an individual when it is homozygous as well as heterozygous. The…

  • Nature And Nurture In Human Development

    Nature and nurture are the two most commonly known factors in human development.Nature is a cold scientific way to view development while, nurture seems a bit warmer like a favorite blanket or parent. Nature is the genetics that make up a person and their most primal persona. It’s like building blocks that make up a physical appearance and the wiring of a building, the building can still be decorated. Nurture, is the way a person is decorated by the world around them. It happens when a child is…

  • A Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

    A. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) Principle It includes the primer mediated enzymatic amplification of DNA. It uses the ability of DNA polymerase to manufacture new strand of DNA complementary to the offered template strand. DNA polymerase can add a nucleotide only onto a preexisting 3′-OH group to add the first nucleotide that is way Primer is required. Then DNA polymerase elongates its three ends by adding more nucleotides to generate an extended region of double-stranded DNA.…

  • Prehistoric Autopsy Report

    Researchers only had 40% of Lucy’s skeleton so they used comparison and inferring as a technique to reconstruct Lucy. While putting together Lucy’s skeleton, researchers found out that she was very small and an adult. They decided to use a modern human skeleton to infer some of the missing pieces. The team filled in some of the missing parts using other fossils and making a physical model of the skeleton which they would use as a basis of the reconstruction (Prehistoric Autopsy video). Professor…

  • Comparing Scientific Experimentation In Rappaccini's Daughter And The Birthmark

    In science, experimentation has boundaries in which scientists should not break. Many people believe that scientific experimentation should remain within boundaries, not allowing experimentation with human life and the processes controlled by nature. The idea of “playing God” in science causes controversy in society, which consists of attempting to alter the nature of life and events through science. In literature, authors use the characters and plot to allow the reader to make conclusions about…

  • Spindle Formation And Addition Of Nocodazole

    Results 14 – 3 -3 sigma gene produces 4N cell having an irregular shape 14 – 3 – 3 sigma gene was overexpressed to determine its function in tumor cells. The amount of living cells for G was 81% while for the S sample, 73% was measured. This unexpected minor difference may be due the stress caused while handling the sample e.g. the incubator was opened several times causing fluctuation in temperature, essential gases (e.g. oxygen) and the cells were taken out of the incubator for…

  • Public Voice Argument

    The article “listening for the Public Voice” by Robert Cook-Deegan and Jane Maienchein discuses the many arguments, both for and against, surround human embryo gene mutation and experimentation. They then provide multiple examples from scientific history in which the practices had faced the same amount of scrutiny from the public, yet once people saw the rewards that could result from these practices, they allowed these practices to become “normal”. In the article “Listening for the Public…
