  • Persuasive Essay On Human Cloning

    about being on an organ transplant waiting list for decades, waiting for their inevitable death. Human cloning has allowed us to grow organs, by using skin cells and converting them to stem cells. The nucleus of these stem cells of skin are then replaced into the nucleus and create what is known as a blastocyst, a bundle of hundreds of cells whose purpose is to specialize growing a specific body part, such as an ear. (Knapton). Not only can this help people who are in life-threatening…

  • The Cell Membrane: The Most Important Parts Of The Cell

    The Cell Membrane is one of the most important parts of the cell. If not for the cell membrane it would be extremely easy for things to invade the cell; this is because on of the cell membranes job is to control what come in and out of the cell (i.e. ions, viruses, etc). Also the cell membrane is what helps hold the cell and all of its organelles Endoplasmic Reticulum (AKA the ER), smooth and rough whats the difference? The smooth ER does not have any ribosomes while the rough ER is covered in…

  • Ronald M. Green Building A Baby From The Genes Up Analysis

    In Ronald M. Green’s “Building a Baby From the Genes Up,” Green shares an anecdote, gives his support for genetic modification, addresses opposing arguments, refutes the opposing argument, and finishes with his support for genetic modification. His thesis is because genetic modification is already happening, we may as well embrace it and make it a part of our lives. In the other essay “Genetically Modified Humans? No Thanks” written by Richard Hayes, he addresses Green and his argument right off…

  • Polymerase Chain Reaction And Gene Therapy

    blood cell or hair follicle to be examined.Example: suspected homicides,suicides,and cases referred from the court. 3.PCR application in the identification of genetic disorder: The Polymerase chain reaction technology has been most commonly used to amplify the gene segments which contain kenned mutations for diagnosis of inherited diseases like beta thalassemia, sickle-cell anemia,cystic fibrosis,etc. 4. PCR is especially useful for the prenatal diagnosis of inherited diseases where cells…

  • Peptidomimetics Essay

    Peptidomimetics are compounds whose essential elements (pharmacophore) mimic a natural peptide or protein in 3D space and which retain the ability to interact with the biological target and produce the same biological effect. The demand for modified peptides with improved stability profiles and pharmacokinetic properties is driving extensive research effort in this field. Many structural modifications of peptides guided by rational design and molecular modeling have been established to develop…

  • Human Body: The Human Skeletal System

    The human body contains a bunch of different systems, and it has many divisions within the systems. Organs, tissues, bones, joints, and cartilage are just a few things that are the genetic makeup of the actually human skeletal system. The human skeletal system is very diverse but unique at the same time. Bones are responsible for playing a major role in how our body is made up and functions. A bone is a rigid organ in which it contains living and evolving tissue that has various particular…

  • Fruit Fly Lab Report

    This summer I had an internship working in Paul Garrity’s behavioral biology lab at Brandeis University and conducted experiments on genetically modified common fruit fly, Drosophilia. There I learned about the important research that is being done on these fruit flies throughout the country and the burgeoning science of genetic modification that has begun dominating laboratories across the country. This research focused in on the sensory receptors that the flies use to detect changes in…

  • Why Is Evolution Important

    life is now set for success. Multicellular life in great complexity can now occur. When cells would live in close proximity to each other they would eventually develop different roles that acted as a single organism. This would allow the cells to share the task of life by dividing the labor. Eventually the cells would become so dependant on each other that they would not be capable of survival as a single cell. So over time their genomes would combine resulting in an multicellular organism.…

  • Reflection On Anatomy And Physiology

    Anatomy and Physiology are two branches of science and they provide the foundation for understanding the body’s parts and functions. Anatomy is the science of body structures and the relationships among them. Physiology is the science of body functions or how the body parts work. Anatomical position is the description of any region or part of the body in a specific stance. The anatomical position is the erect position of the body with the face directed forward, arms at the side, the palms of…

  • Cell Size Experiment

    diffusion depth was 1.5 : .125 (0.5cm potato cube.) 3. How might a cell’s shape influence the rate of diffusion? - As a cell gets larger, the ratio of surface area to volume decreases. That means a larger cell has less surface area for the same amount of volume than a smaller cell would have; larger cells move dissolved substances more slowly throughout the entire cell than smaller cells do. 4. What factors affect the rate of diffusion and how can these be…
