    The line chart in Figure 2 also shows that the mean germination between different genotypes is different with genotype Moa-0 showing the highest mean germination and genotype Lov-5 as the lowest and Lesno-4 showing no germination at all. Furthermore, it is shown that all the seeds failed to germinate at 0.2M and 0.3. Figure 3 Bars represent standard error measurement Figure 4 Bar chart of mean germination against salt concentration The bar chart in Figure 4 compares the seed germination in different genotype where the genotypes Sha and Moa-0 shows the higher mean of seed germination in 0.1M than the other three genotypes that germinated. The result obtained from Kruskal-Wallis test is there were significant effects of salt concentration (Kruskal-Wallis chi-squared = 257.48, df = 3, p-value < 0.001) and variability of genotypes (Kruskal-Wallis chi-squared = 70.551, df = 5, p-value < 0.001) on the seed…

    Morality: An essential to life      A Russian born American science-fiction writer and biochemist once quoted, “Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what’s right.” This statement generates a series of controversial questions. What is right? How do morals affect people and society in which we live? Does everyone have specific morals by which they try to live their life? How does someone realize what their morals are? What are morals? These questions…

    Variation is the fuel that feeds evolutionary change and it originates at the levels of phenotype and genotype. Environments of organisms are greatly influenced by biotic factors such as predation and competition, but are also influenced by abiotic factors such as human activity and climate. In biology, disturbances are changes within environmental conditions that cause intense changes in ecosystems. Some organisms poorly suited for their local environment can respond adaptively by altering…

    Class distinctions, specifically gender differences, are ceaseless throughout history and continue to prevail in modern day society. In the twentieth-century play, “Trifles,” Susan Glaspell focuses her discontent with society on the impeding condescension the women of her play are exposed to. The overall play possesses a feminist connotation in which the protagonist women attempt to detach themselves from the false male-imposed identity they are given by unintentionally solving a crime. The men…

    Originally it was believed that all traits are blended together. Due to the work of Gregor Mendel, though, it was shown that characteristics are a result of inherited factors, known as genes1. Genes are units of heredity on a chromosome that bring about our existence and create diversity. This diversity arises from the fact that there are different forms of genes known as alleles. All the alleles of an organism are referred to as that organism’s genotype and results in an organism’s phenotype,…

    Hardy­Weinberg Law Given the mathematical and statistical methods used already, this law also uses probability, however is represented in a graphical manner. Through this graph I will determine if the class data set has significant variation on an allele by genotype graph by comparing their points to the collection of data sets from Census at School that will represent in this paper as the Canadian average. The Hardy­Weinberg Law, developed by G.H Hardy and Wilhelm Weinberg in 1908, states that…

    opened the doors to new perspectives of study that would include both factors and their subsets, such as the past one, their reliability is still debatable in the context of their replicability. Dick et al (2015), for instance, argument that there should a concern and special attention to candidate gene studies. One of the reasons they pose this concern is because there are different conceptualizations of the results depending on the field. According to Dick et al (2015), for psychologists and…

    qualities of a living being is referred to as the life form 's genotype, its inward chromosomal structure. The genotype oversees what a life form can get to be in a given envi­ronment furthermore decides the innate attributes which a creature can transmit to its posterity (however, in the event that proliferation is hetero, the genotype of the posterity is obviously a result of the genotype of both father and…

    N370S mutation leads to Type 1 Gaucher’s, while L444P leads to type 2 or type 3 Gaucher’s disease. Patients with the N370S variant often bear distinct phenotypes than those with the L444P variant. That being said, the relationship between the phenotype and the genotype are not well understood. Individuals with identical genotypes for the GBA1 alleles may still experience drastic differences in phenotypes. Research carried out by molecular biologist Rosa Salvioli noticed the involvement of an…

    diploid organisms will not change in allele proportions over generations as long as certain conditions are met. “Another generation of random mating led by direct calculation to the same proportions among the offspring and ‘We thus obtain the same distribution of pure types and hybrids for each generation under panmixia’ (Weinberg 1908). Weinberg then uses his result to work out the numbers of the two phenotypes to be expected among the relatives of an individual of known phenotype, but this…
