  • Ruth's Role In Housekeeping By Marilynne Robinson

    After reading Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson, one may ask, how does this book fit into a course addressing genus, genius, and gender? For one, this course focuses on the female geniuses of literature and how they fall into the genus, which is driven by the male gender. In this respect, the narrator in Housekeeping is a young girl, Ruth, who happens to be the genius in this story. She tells us, in quite detail, the story of how her family came to reside in the town of Fingerbone, and the struggles she and her sister Lucille went through after their mother and grandmother passed away. Ruth starts out the story by telling us, the reader, about her grandfather, whom she never had the pleasure of knowing. She tells us of his paintings of…

  • Genus Homo Evolution

    Since the emergence of the genus Homo, the hominins went through great patterns of evolution over generations. Through series of adaptations, the genus Homo spread in various geographic locations and eventually emerged as anatomically modern humans. With the allele frequency changes that evolved in the genus Homo, there is key evidence that microevolution led to macroevolution. From speciation to extinction, the modern synthesis helps us explain not only the mechanisms of evolution and the…

  • Genus Dysteria Research Paper

    Genus Dysteria (Huxley, 1857) Synonyms: Aegyria Ehrenberg, 1838; Ervilia Dujardin, 1841 This genus was first reported by Huxley in 1857. It is a member of class Phyllopharyngea shows characters such as ciliated stage with somatic kineties mostly as monokinetids that each have a lateral kinetodesmal fibril, a reduced or absent, transverse microtubular ribbon. This genus belongs to subclass Phyllopharyngia show characters such as trophonts free-swimming, may be sessile but usually not…

  • Bergey's Manual

    Bergey’s manual was used to identify the unknown to be either from genus Flavimonas also known as Pseudomonas or Frateuria based on the results of the experiments. Multiple different experiments were conducted to identify the unknown, however only seven characteristics of the unknown were discovered from the data in Bergey’s manual. Not all test performed in lab were used due to the fact that some tests were not listed on the manual, while others did not apply to the category of the bacteria.…

  • Unknown 15 Archetype

    identified as non-hemolytic (gamma hemolysis). Growth best resembled the control Staphylococcus epidermidis which is non-hemolytic, indicating that Unknown 15 did not produce hemolysins to lyse RBCs into hemoglobin (1). Therefore, the alpha and beta hemolytic genus Streptococcus was eliminated (5). There was not an inconsistency in this result but, rather, a variability. The species that Unknown 15 was identified to be, by BLAST sequencing, can either demonstrate alpha or gamma hemolytic…

  • Gram-Negative String Test Lab Report

    Introduction Background This experiment pertained to identifying an unknown bacterium. This bacterium was retrieved from a member of our group’s hand. Bacteria are prokaryotic, but like all other living organism there are many genus and species. Through experimentation these unknowns can be found can be brought to light. Bacteria can be classified either gram-positive or gram-negative. These groups differ by the composition of their cell walls. In particular, the difference in the composition…

  • Chimpanzee Persuasive Essay

    The intelligent and aggressive species known as the chimpanzee is recognized as the most closely related animal to humans in the world. At one time it was believed that gorillas and chimps were the most closely related, until new technologies were developed resulting in the finding that humans share a massive 99% of our DNA with these creatures. Chimpanzees are classified in the genus known as Pan, along with the species bonono, but not with humans. Humans are classified in their own genus known…

  • Hominin Evolution Theory

    The hominin evolution theory is the idea of Homo sapiens sapiens (AMHs) evolved from a lineage of hominins in Africa. The purpose of the project is to determine the genus and species of seven skulls discovered by Dr. Musoma in Africa, Europe and Asia, approximate the age of each skull, interpret the evolutionary pathway of each species, and provide evidence for and against the “Out of Africa” theory. The purpose of the project with be completed and evidence on the “Out of Africa” theory will be…

  • Research Paper On Monoctonia

    European deciduous forest faunal complexes. The range of Populus is rather extensive, and association of many species with rivers has contributed to its vertical and horizontal zonation, with the result that M. vesicarii can be expected to have a much broader distribution. Our description of M. japonica sp. n. from Japan extends the distribution of the genus to the whole Palaearctic region. To our knowledge, M. japonica sp. n. exclusively parasitizes Pemphigus matsumurai on Populus maximowitzi…

  • Family Wrasses Essay

    cleaners that eat ectoparasites (e.g. the cleaner wrasses of the genus Labroides). Most burrow in the sand, but some build mucus cocoons in which to sleep. Most species change color and sex as they mature, but some do not. As you can see, there are many differences, making almost any aquarium a candidate for the right wrasse. Having said that, not every wrasse offered in the marine aquarium trade is a suitable aquarium fish. Reef Compatible and Not Reef Compatible As far as the aquarist is…
