  • Edward Jenner: The World Of Microbiology

    Essay 1: An important discovery/concept in microbiology The world of microbiology is a vast one. In theory, microbiology is the study of single celled micro organisms and viruses, that work independently of each other. These microbial cells are the backbone and fundamental unit of life. Most of the biomass present on earth today is microbial, with almost 5.3x10^30 cells present, mostly in terrestrial and oceanic subsurfaces. Within these subsurfaces, many microbial communities exist, with…

  • Spermatogenesis Vs Gametogenesis

    It is said that ‘’ Nature has invented reproduction as a mechanism for life to move forward. As a life force it passes right through us and makes us a link in the evolution’’. Reproduction is one of the essentials elements to live it is one of the characteristics of all living things; in fact, The process by which gametes are formed is the Gametogenesis which, is the combination of meiotic and mitotic divisions that happen to form gametes; although, spermatogenesis and oogenesis both do happen…

  • Tomorrow: A Peaceful Path To Real Reform

    As Eden explained, Ebenezer Howard has stated that he had combined three projects to create his scheme of Garden city (Eden, 1947). These projects are the proposal for organized migratory movement of population by Edward Gibbon Wakefield and Professor Alfred Marshall; the proposal for land tenure system by Thomas Spence and Herbert Spencer; and the model city called Victoria by James Silk Buckingham. This idea can be supported by Batchelor as he noted that Ebenezer Howard wrote his proposal for…

  • Roosevelt's Inaugural Address Analysis

    History indicated that leaders are often portrayed as divine figures or heroes suggesting that they are genetically different. But does heritage and genetics really play such an important role in relation to one's ability to lead and affect their power to rule? In other words, are leaders naturally born to lead and "genetically different"? Regarding Washington's presidency up to present day, some leaders are shown to be more capable of being in power while others are less likely prone to be…

  • Genetic Engineering Is Unethical

    Genetic Engineering Out of all the discussions we participated in this quarter, the one that interested me the most was the discussion on the dangers and benefits of human cloning and genetic engineering. In the discussion we saw two sides of an issue, Kenneth Kosik argued that there are a lot of risks involved in tinkering with the human genome. If we intend to move forward with it, he felt that we need to proceed slowly and cautiously. Robert Sapolsky, on the other hand, was making the…

  • Consilience: The Unity Of Knowledge

    disciplines must conform.” Whilst there is and has always been an argument that culture is tasked with controlling the population of a society. That each unique culture throughout the world is predetermined to follow a set path, and system due to genetic evolution is both unconfirmable and highly implausible. This can be seen in the widely variant nature of differing culture systems that exist throughout the world, and their associated symbolisms and approaches to societal expectations. If this…

  • Polymerase Chain Reaction Lab Report

    Suppose we have a certain segment of a DNA molecule ,a gene for example that we want to amplify ,that is make many identical copies of that gene of interest, one way is to basically take that gene to integrate it into a bacterial plasmid to place that recombinant plasmid into a bacterial cell and to allow that bacterial cell to divide many times and eventually make many copies of that gene of interest. The problem with this particular method is that it is not only time consuming and not only is…

  • DNA Technology: Forensic Identification

    Otto Schneider Grade 10 Biology Ms Ruebe D Assessment - DNA Technology DNA Profiling Forensic Identification Forensic Identification refers to the use of forensic science to identify objects from trace evidence found on them. Trace evidence is used to reconstruct crimes or accidents. DNA profiling is a method in forensic science which can identify individuals by their DNA profiles. DNA profiles are encrypted sets of letters that represent a person’s DNA makeup. These sets can be used as a…

  • Recombinant Dna Synthesis

    is genetically identical to its counterpart. DNA cloning is a recombinant DNA technique where cDNAs and fragments of genomic DNA are inserted into a cloning vector and maintained during growth of the host cells. Vector is an agent that transfers genetic material into a cell or organism. Restriction enzymes are bacterial enzymes that find restriction sites and cleaves DNA. restriction enzymes and DNA ligase are utilized to produce recombinant DNA molecules. DNA ligase catalyzes formation of 3′…

  • Darwinism Must Die So Evolution May Live Essay

    Throughout several generations Darwinism has been applied to several concepts, and people continue to expand on it everyday. Darwinism is merely just the evolution of species through natural selection, which was developed through Charles Darwin. Darwin did many tests and studies to advance and add on to many theories discovered by other scientists, but all of the theories discovered by other scientists just go under Darwinism. Darwin did not come up with every theory that is a part of Darwinism,…
