  • The Pros And Cons Of In-Vitro Meat

    Biological Background Animal meat has been a primary source of protein for humans since the beginning of time, yet with an increase in technology and biological knowledge – scientists have been able to create meat without the killing of animals. The ‘victimless-meat’ as it is commonly referred to, is in fact in-vitro, meaning that it has been created in a laboratory. In-Vitro meat is cultured from the stem cells of eukaryotes most commonly derived in the blood drawn from an animal’s bovine foetus. The process of extracting stem cells from the blood of foetal bovine serum means that the resulting cultured animal flesh has not been harmfully taking from a living animal. When developing in-vitro meat, tissue growth promoting…

  • Animal Slaughter History

    To many people the idea of lab grown meat sounds repulsive, but with further research into the subject they may alter their opinion. It all started in 1931 when Winston Churchill proclaimed, "We shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium." Even though he was not a scientist and had no idea of what would go into growing meat, chemists ran with the idea and finally succeeded. The first…

  • The Role Of Meat In Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

    Meat of the Future As the science we know today’s advances, many things are being developed. One of these things are advancement of engineered meat. Within the last decade, scientists have been looking for a solution to create meat without it coming directly from animals. Pushing the boundaries of science have also been exhibited in Mary Shelley's book Frankenstein; in this book Shelley gives a theory of bringing a new creature from other parts of a deceased creature. Making lab-produced meat is…

  • O-Methyltransferase Lab Report

    peucetius and functionally characterized. Moreover, its biotechnological application for the production of diverse classes of O-methoxy natural products was experimented and investigated. Among these substrates both in the in vitro and in vivo bioconversion experiments, 7,8-dihydroxyflavone showed significant product conversion and was further analyzed by NMR study and confirmed as 7-hydroxy 8-O-methoxyflavone. Fermentation bioconversion assay was also performed with 7,8-DHF. Moreover, while…

  • Persuasive Essay On How Animal Testing Is Inhumane

    that scientists are trying to use “the three R’s,” which stand for: reducing the amount of animals used, refining experimental methods to minimize pain and suffering, and replacing experiments involving animals with other tests if possible (Szumski and Karson 68). One common method that is used to replace the need for animals is called in vitro experiments. The word vitro means “in glass” and most of the experiments are done inside containers (Szumski and Karson 68). When a vitro experiment is…

  • Persuasive Speech Outline For Animal Testing

    Tests determining genetic toxicity such as the chromosome aberration test costs $30,000 while an in vitro test only costs $20,000. iii. Embryotoxicity tests performed on rats cost $50,000 while the in vitro rat limb bud test costs $15,000 [4]. V. Animal testing is cruel and inhumane. a. Animals involved in experiments undergo a lot of suffering. They may be purposefully infected with deadly diseases, poisoned, burnt, blinded, or have a number of other invasive procedures performed on them and…

    luciferase and peptides. The samples under different experimental conditions were then treated with the light-emitting molecule, coelenterazine, and processed to bioluminescence imaging. IVIS imaging system was used for instant sample imaging within 5 minutes after injection, though which nanoparticles in samples were visualised. Bio-distribution of nanoparticles in samples was also observed by the confocal fluorescence microscopy, hyperspectral fluorescence microscopy and transmission electron…

  • Computationally Validation Of Transcriptional Drivers And Therapeutic Combinations In CRPC

    Aim 3. Validation of transcriptional drivers and therapeutic combinations in CRPC. Rationale and strategy: To experimentally validate computationally predicted drivers of CRPC, we will use loss- and gain-of-function approaches for in vitro (i.e., cell lines) and in vivo (i.e., xenograft models) experimental validation to determine whether these genes are essential for drug-resistance. Computationally inferred drug combinations will be validated for their effect on MRs’ activity and ability to…

  • Pros And Cons Of Promoting Animal Welfare

    My impression is that it wouldn’t be that big of a sacrifice to produce (and consume) less, but better quality meat. I believe Americans could—and would—adapt. Another way to achieve more humane farming methods is through public policy. Evelyn Puhler's article, "Meat and Morality: Alternatives to Factory Farming," published in the Journal of Environmental Ethics, offers several ethical and moral alternatives to mass scale meat production and consumption, including vegetarianism and in-vitro…

  • C Perfringens Case Studies

    Potter (2001) mentioned that C. perfringens spores may contaminate meat and meat products either before processing and survive cooking or after processing due to unhygienic handling of prepared food. Adak et al. (2002) reported that deaths due to C. perfringens (type A) food poisoning are rare but may occur in the elderly and debilitated. It is estimated to kill seven people in the USA, and between 50 and 100 people in UK yearly. Asha and Wilcox (2002) reported that the first C. perfringens…
