  • Gene Drive Effect

    Introduction Gene drives are a controversial new invention made to affect genes of a species, which can potentially eliminate animal spread diseases. A gene drive refers to a genetic system that manipulates a gene, guaranteeing all offspring to contain a certain dominant trait. As the trait is dominant it eventually spreads throughout the whole species, allowing them to all contain the manipulated trait. Scientists have designed this in order to eliminate mosquito-transmitted diseases such as…

  • Icosahedral Structures

    around the surface of a sphere. The corners of the structure are what we refer to as vertices, and each icosahedron comprises 12. These structures display a 2-3-5 symmetry, where there is 2-fold symmetry that rotates through the middle of the edges, 3-fold symmetry that rotates through the middle of each face, and 5-fold symmetry that rotates through the middle of the corners. These triangles are built from identical subunits, which in this cause prevent gaps from occurring between subunits,…

  • Chrality Research Paper

    Chirality is a geometric property of some molecules and ions. A chiral molecule/ion is non- superimposable on its mirror image. The presence of an asymmetric carbon atom is one of several structural features that induce chirality in organic and inorganic molecules. Many biologically active molecules are chiral, including the naturally occurring amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) and sugars. In biological systems, most of these compounds are of the same chirality: most amino acids are…

  • Rhetorical Analysis For The Ubyssey

    reading over notes isn 't as useful as you may think it be and, no you aren 't doing it right either. Regardless of how well you think you study, there is always room for improvement. Through deeper meaning analysis, strategic studying and limiting interference from other subjects you’ll be well on your way towards getting a better mark than you…

  • Chikungunya Prevention

    In order to prevent a virus we must first learn its history; how it came about and where, we must then take into perspective how it is spread and then take preventative measures to ensure that the minimal amount of people are infected. A virus is simply defined as a non-living, infectious agent that must use a host cell in order to replicate. What makes these viruses so dangerous is that they’re numerous, and thus easy to spread and catch. This is not to say that every virus affects us, some…

  • Protein Synthesis Lab Report

    A Comparison of Protein Synthesis between Eukaryotes and Prokaryotes The different fundamental organisation of genetic material and organelles between eukaryotes and prokaryotes leads to dissimilar processes of protein synthesis. The larger eukaryotes have a more intricate pathway associated with protein synthesis, due to both the biochemical structure of organelles and enzymes, and also the transport of genetic material within cell. In this essay I hope to explore the differences of gene…

  • Analysis B Bigemina

    3. Results 3.1 Cloning and phylogenetic analysis B. bigemina Argentina strain was used to obtain genomic and cDNA for PCR with primers BbigAMA-1 F and R to amplify the AMA-1 gene. The sequences had an identical length from both templates and of the estimated size according to primers' design (not shown). The nucleotide sequencing analysis presented a 1988-bp long gene (gene bank accession number: AB481200) and encoded a 595-amino acid peptide (gene bank accession number: BAH22706) (Fig. 1)…

  • Arabidopsis Thaliana Lab Report

    components of coenzymes and proteins (Axtell). Controlling gene expression via miRNA is the plant’s way of responding to limiting levels of these essential macronutrients. miRNA works by binding to single stranded mRNA which creates double stranded RNA. Thus the plant identifies the new double stranded mRNA as inferior and attacks it. For the experiment, there were four microRNAs used including miR156, miR395, miR398, and miR399. miR156 was the control and has no nutrient requirement so it…

  • Genetic Disorders Research Paper

    Genetic disorders may affect millions of people every few seconds around the world, and it’s our job to understand how they work or occur in order to try and prevent them or cause them from getting worse. With how far research has come over the years, we now know how genetic disorders occur. They occur from something called mutations, which I am sure mostly everyone has heard about. Most people just don’t understand exactly how mutations work, occur, or how they cause millions of different…

  • Expression In INS-1

    Figure 22. Relative mRNA expression in INS-1E cells after different chemicals treatment. Cells were treated with DHT, TCS and TCC for 48 h before RNA extraction for activity determination. Expression levels of the AR, pdx1, GK and Ins2 were determined by RT-QPCR and mRNA expression levels were normalized with TFIIB (A-D). DMSO treated samples were considered as control. Control samples were set as one and results are shown as mean ± S.E.M of duplicate samples from three independent experiments.…
