Every era in History has its challenges for society. It is easy to observe what people of their time throughout centuries went through. Whatever an individual faces in life usually gets depicted in a composers work. Whether it is a personal life, tragedy, war, or diseases, each of these factors play a major role in how and using what genre music was composed. Other than such facts, a persons’ surrounding, companions, to be exact, have an immense impact on an individual. One…
Oral Microbiome 10: Reflection 3
One a daily basis the human mouth can come in contact with many different materials and organisms. “The human mouth is home to billions of individual microorganisms, including viruses, protozoa, fungi, archaea, and bacteria” (University of Minnesota Department of Biology Teaching and Learning, 2016, p. 21). In specific, during this lab we are looking at Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans) and Lactobacilli. In studies, it has been shown that yogurt has helped…
Part III : Water Parameters ( for pump-ashore tanks )
1. Water quality
Heavy metals shall not in the water and hygiene of the water shall be taken care to prevent unnecessary bacteria infection during yolk-sac frys stage and hatching period. Uneaten food and feces must be removed to prevent ammonia level increases which will cause the mortality rate increases.
pH level should be between 6 to 7 as optimum level to culture the frys.
The water currents shall not be too strong.…
The field of telomere biology has been an active area of research in recent time, especially so following the work by Hayflick and Olovnikov. Expanding on his, Elizabeth Blackburn and Joseph Gall noticed that the end of the chromosomes from Tetrahymena thermophila contained the six base sequence TTGGGG iterated many times (Blackburn and Gall, 1978). Over the decades, literature has arisen that has revealed many things regarding telomeres. However, as with the case with many…

Carbon Cycling Internal
What is the Carbon Cycle?
Carbon is a key component in all living organisms and can be found in both living and nonliving organisms. Organisms will continue to contain carbon even when they change or decay. Carbon is found in a variety of living things and can exist as a solid e.g coal and diamonds, a liquid e.g crude oil or a gas, for example CO2…
chewing of food in the mouth, further breakdown of food by liquefaction in the stomach, and absorption of food in the small intestine, the fermentation of the fiber in the diet primarily occurs in the hindgut with the assistance of bacterial and protozoa (Succeed equine, 2016). Volatile fatty acids are one of the main products formed from fermentation; these acids are an important energy source and are provided from the bloodstream that had previously absorbed the acids (Succeed equine,…
2. MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES:
2.1. What are Monoclonal Antibodies?
A clone is a group (family) of cells which come from a single parent cell that divides various times and are identical in all ways. In their structure, metabolic characteristics, functions, etc.
An antibody is a protein which is produced by the human body’s immune system when it detects a substance that may be harmful (antigens like: bacteria, viruses, chemicals, parasites, etc). Antibodies…

Metronidazole is a nitroimidazoleantibiotic medication used particularly for anaerobic bacteria and protozoa. Metronidazole is an antibacterial against anaerobic organisms, amoebicide and antiprotozoal.124 It is the drug of choice for first episodes of mild-to-moderate Clostridium difficile infection.125
It is on the World Health Organization's List of…

2007:30). Sepsis can be caused by pathogens other than bacteria, such as fungi, viruses, and protozoa (Munford, 2001:63). Regardless of the causative organism, sepsis can result in systemic complications that occur as circulating chemical mediators released by the inflammatory response compromised the patients cardiovascular system (Cunha, 2003:24)…
