  • DNA Modification In Genetic Engineering

    DNA Modification DNA is the ultimate carrier of an organism’s genetic information. The particular sequence of amino acids determines a being’s height, eye color, susceptible diseases, and precise blueprint. Recent studies have shown that this genetic outline does not have to be permanent. New fields of science such as epigenetics and germ line editing are slowly reshaping the status quo of genetics. Genetic modification is no longer limited to food and animals because scientists are…

  • The Importance Of Germination In Plants

    Plants are mainly multicellular, predominantly photosynthetic eukaryotes of the Kingdom Plantae (Plant, 2018). Kingdoms are the main divisions which scientists use to classify all living things on Earth. Biologists have discovered 500 000 species of plants, of which 250 000 are angiosperms and are dominant in plant study (Encyclopedia, n.d.). Seeds are a small embryonic plant, which is enclosed in a small covering, called a seed coat, with stored food inside until they can obtain their energy…

  • Pros And Cons Of Genetic Engineering

    There are different forms and views of genetic engineering along with some pros and cons about the use of genetic engineering. The importance of genetic engineering is to find ways to make things better and to explore new things. Genetic engineering is basically tampering with the arrangement of amino acids in dna to change it or make something new. Interesting fact is that eighty percent of dna in a human body is unknown. The pros of genetic engineering are the agricultural growth and…

  • Argumentative Essay: Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Argumentative Essay Many people today have trouble finding who they are and believe society should follow someone else's opinions but that in fact is false and should follow what they believe in their train of thought. Emerson argues that an individual should not submit to conformity, but rather have faith in one’s own constitution; this is relatable today because society's Idiosyncrasy has made humankind want to be different from the rest. Many people have strikingly vastly divergent views…

  • Inheritance By Sharon Moalem: Chapter Summary

    In Inheritance: How Our Genes Change Our Lives and Our Lives Change Our Genes, author Sharon Moalem uses a concoction of historical happenings, real-life experiences, and patient case history to portray two main biological concepts: deviations from Mendelian genetics and epigenetics (Moalem, 2014). In regards to the AP Biology curriculum, these two concepts relate, respectively, to the third and fourth big ideas that make-up the course’s framework. The third big idea in the AP Biology…

  • Theories Of Psychology

    The word psychology is made up of by two greek words “Psyche” which is mind or the soul and “ logos” which means the study. The modern day definition of psychology is the scientific study of the mind and human behavior. Psychology is now recognized as a natural science but unlike other natural sciences such as chemistry, physics there is no one corrects theory or answer. Therefore we could state that psychology is a multi perspective science in which behavior and thinking patterns are…

  • Synthetic Biology In The Future

    As you have heard, synthetic biology is an emerging technology that has made great advancements in a short amount of time. Though the public’s capacity to imagine misuse scenarios as a result of new developments in synthetic biology are vast, in reality institutional and structural capacities remain limited. Taking these limitations into account, synthetic biology still has an incredible amount of potential. This potential has implications for how America addresses its security concerns in the…

  • Inheritance Patterns In Dosophila Melipella Experiment

    Also, many processes of its development are able to be successfully compared to other organisms, making it perfect for studying inheritance (Guilfoile,1997). Inheritance in genetics is thought to follow rules established by Gregor Mendel. One of these rules is the Law of Independent Assortment. It states that genes of the parents will be independently assorted, as a result of crossing over. Crossing over is an event during meiosis when homologous chromosomes line up and exchange…

  • The Pros And Cons Of The Scopes Trial

    ape-like ancestors. Here many creationists would object that all humans have been created by a higher power and dismiss evolution as nonsense. Sonder suggests that an abundant amount of Darwin’s theory is supported by the reputable findings of Gregor Mendel, a monk who discovered evidence that humans share some genetic patterns with a variety of other organisms (12). Edward J. Larson’s work in “Summer for the Gods” allows his audience a great deal of information on the matter of the comparing…

  • The Nuclecule Of Life: The Structure Of DNA

    1.1 The structure of DNA Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is often referred to as “the molecule of life”. It encodes the instructions that are used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms. The molecule itself was first discovered in 1860 by Friedrich Miescher (reviewed in Dahm 2005). Further work was performed by other chemists, including Phoebus Levene who identified the components of the molecule, including the presence of ribose sugars and phosphate groups, as well as four…
