    The bases of this article comes from a survey conducted at The University of Queensland. The survey takes into question students from all points of view and asks them about their opinion of Vitro Meat. Vitro Meat is lab developed meat, made from animal DNA and grown artificially. Matti Rose Wilks works at the University of Queensland in the School of Psychology as a tutor, postgraduate student, and researcher. Her work gains credibility and reliability through her use of research studies to back up the information being discussed. Also, other professionals peer review her scientific studies before publication. The Public Library of Science (PLOS ONE), located in San Francisco, published this study. PLOS ONE’s credibility comes from the non…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Animal testing is very harmful and many animals are not treated fairly. For example, there is a 76% chance that animals could die according to PETA. So not just answers that the testers are losing also many animals. Next the researchers are hurting as many animals you get answers from according to Nick News. To support, animals don't have a voice. For example, Many animals get stressed and anxiety according to PETA. Why should all these animals be suffering just for answers? Also some animals…

    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…

    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…

    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…
