  • Dna Barcoding

    Lynchel Brumaire DNA, the genetic code of all organisms, can help in the analysis of the organisms evolutionary history. All organisms, alive and extinct, descended from one creature. As time went on mutations accumulated in the DNA sequence of the progeny. By sequencing the genetic code of an organism in relation to another, their evolutionary history can be placed onto a phylogenetic tree. In this experiment, DNA barcoding was used to to identify a species and place it onto a phylogenetic tree. DNA barcoding can also be used to identify unknown organisms. Identifying species play a very serious role in criminal justice and forensics as well as ensuring that business involved in food production and processing do not deceptively label their…

  • Barcode Of Life Analysis

    The great debate over what makes a species a species could soon come to an end with advances in DNA sequencing as mentioned in the article “Barcode of Life” by Mark Y. Stoeckle and Paul D. N. Hebert. To what extent is the information valid? To start off, the creators of the barcode method were the same people that wrote the article. This immediately was a red flag as the potential for bias was strong in the article. Though the authors do not explicitly mention how their new method will become…

  • Pt2520 Unit 2

    What is a DNA barcode? DNA barcoding is fast, accurate method of identifying plant and animals, or products made from them. It’s a DNA sequence that uniquely identifies each species of living things by comparing them with known barcodes in large online databases.

When you get to the section where the animation separates into plant and animal cells, select animal cells: 
2. What are the two steps taken at the beginning of the process to break down the cell membrane? a. Adding lysis solution to…

  • Phylogenic Analysis

    DNA samples were extracted from sixteen unidentified shark tissue specimens and underwent PCR amplification of CO1 mitochondrial gene. DNA samples were assessed for presence and quality using agarose gel electrophoresis. Species identification was performed by importing finalized CO1 sequences into two DNA databases to ensure accurate identification. Phylogenic analysis was then conducted to determine relationships between identified species. Electrophoresis Electrophoresis of DNA run in 2%…

  • Evolution: A Reflection On Evolution, By Bill Nye

    Before taking the biology 160 course, evolution to me was the change in different species over a period of time. During this course we read a book written by Bill Nye that describe evolution. After reading this book I had a different definition on evolution. Evolution is the process of growth in DNA by natural selection in an organism that can cause genetic defects such as mutations. As I described evolution to me now is the process of growth in DNA by natural selection in an organism that can…

  • Personalized Medicine Essay

    of an individual genetic makeup. According to FDA, Personalized Medicine is described as “the right patient with the right drug at the right dose at the right time. It is the tailoring of medical treatment to the individual characteristics, needs, and preferences of a patient during all stages of care, including prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up”. This new way of tailoring medicine would help in study, identification, analysis and diagnosis of any disease caused due to certain…

  • Essay On Genetically Modified Food

    There is growing interest in growth in the market for functional and genetically modified foods. This type of food is ‘similar in appearance to, or may be, a conventional food that is consumed as part of a usual everyday diet. Many GM (genetically modified) foods have health benefits that, reduce the risk of chronic diseases and remove strains of allergen DNA found in popular foods such as peanuts. GM foods have been developed using fortification that uses modern agricultural biotechnology.…

  • Biochemistry Personal Statement

    Biochemistry is the “structure and function” within living organisms through chemical processes (Revier). Being able to master the subject is a driven force that grasped my attention to continue pursuing my academics through this major. My interest for the subject grew as I conducted further research to determine the benefits of having a degree in biochemistry and how it would aid me in the long runs by having a successful future. Simultaneously, I enrolled in an Introduction to Biochemistry…

  • The Sttigma Against Genetically Modified Foods Kill People

    Genetic engineering as the direct manipulation of the DNA by humans, though, only came about in the 1970s. In 1972, Paul Berg created the first recombinant DNA molecules by combining DNA from the monkey virus SV40 with that of the lambda virus. In 1973 Herbert Boyer and Stanley Cohen created the first transgenic organism by inserting antibiotic resistance genes into the plasmid of an E. coli bacterium. the term "genetic engineering" was first coined by Jack Williamson in his science fiction…

  • GMO Foods: The Benefits Of Genetically Modified Foods

    SweeTango apples are a hybrid fruit, not resulting from naturally occurring cross-pollination, but created in a laboratory at the University of Minnesota (Seabrook). The parent plants of a SweeTango are the Honeycrisp and Zestar apples, both of which are lab-created species. These crisp, juicy fruits are genetically modified to make the cells bigger, resulting in a louder “snap” when biting into the apple. Upon learning this, I vowed to never again eat a genetically modified apple. However,…
