  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Similarities Between DNA And Genes

    After proper research, DNA and the Gene are two quite similar things. Each person contains this in their body. DNA can be found in mostly any part of the body, it could also be found in plants and other species. DNA and the gene are just part of the most important things that we have in our living system because this is what makes us look like our relatives. DNA is part of living things and if someone looks like their parent this is because they have the same Genes. Every living organism…

  • Ethical Issues In Genetic Research

    to the past, genetic research has advanced a great deal. For many centuries, it was believed that God had created the human species; however, due to the researches and experiments done by scientists like Hippocrates, Aristotle, Charles Darwin, Gregor Mendel… it is now accepted that the true force behind evolution, is the adaptation of the genetic code to the environment. As the research in eugenics advances, researchers discover an array of different possible applications such as: germ-line…

  • Phenomenology In Frankenstein

    “I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and convulsive motion agitated its limbs […] His limbs were in proportion, and I had selected his features as beautiful” (Shelley 287). In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein gives life to a creature he had spliced together from the remains of bodies in the local cemetery. And just as Victor Frankenstein spliced together his monster, scientists around the globe are splicing together DNA sequences from multiple…
