  • Blastomycosis In Dogs

    Preventing exposure to areas where the organism lives can reduce risk of blastomycosis, but this may be impractical, especially for dogs who live near these areas. Spores may be more likely to go airborne during dry weather, when the contaminated dust is lighter. It is not easy to predict exactly where the Blastomyces organism may be growing, and is thus difficult to avoid entirely. Avoiding the dense, dark areas where the fungus would thrive is the best prevention which will reduce the dog's risk of…

  • Bottle Mold Research Paper

    Stachybotrys (black mold) is a dark green almost black slimy mold that produces a deadly poison called mycotoxins. It often grows on cellulose based items like straw and paper after coming into contact with water. Stachybotrys enters a person’s system through the spores. Spores are tiny seed like structures which are produced in the mold. Mold spores are invisible to an person’s naked eye. The spores multiply promptly after coming into contact with water. Mycotoxins are present on the surface…

  • Bracken Fern Case Study

    All fronds are potentially fertile; there is no morphological distinction between infertile and fertile fronds. Spores are minute. They are borne in sporangia which congregate in a continuous line along the undersurface margins of the pinnae (Parsons, 1961; Krochmal, 1973). There is an indefinite or rudimentary inner indusium which is further covered by the false indusium. The false indusium is the leaf margin rolled back over the marginal sori. Sporulation is influenced by a complex of factors,…

  • Bio 13 Lab Report

    genes: HIS4, LEU2, and LYS2. In week one, a suspension of spores was received and aliquots of the suspension were plates onto two YPD plates. After a week of yeast growth, haploid spore clones were carefully picked from the plates by sterile toothpicks and used to make patches on a new YPD plate, the master plate. In week three, the master plate was replicated onto three dropout plates: -His, -Leu, and -Lys. In the final week, the growth of the patches on the dropout plates were analyzed and…

  • Effects Of Indoor Air Quality

    Many fungi that are reported to cause allergy belong to Ascomycota, Basidiomycota or anamorphic fungi. Fungi are able to grow on almost all natural and synthetic materials, especially if they are wet (Portnoy, 2003). These microbes can enter buildings directly or by spores being carried in by the air. In a home or building, fungi are usually found on wood, drywall, ceiling tiles and carpeting. The key factor is moisture because fungi need it to grow. As a result, they are most often found in…

  • Unlinked Gene Hypothesis

    experiment was meant to look and find gene linkages and determine the crosses of the tan x wild type (black), gray x wild type (black), and tan x gray spores of the Sordaria fimicola. To accomplish the crossing, the plates filled with auger had to be set up with each individual kind of spore. Three plates with two different spore colors of sordaria in each. One plate was black and tan, black and gray, and gray and tan. For gene to centromere distance the standard deviation was 5.6 (tan x wild)…

  • Antimicrobial Properties Of Silver Nannoparticles

    They investigated the synthesis of silver nanoparticles by the spore crystal mixture of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Bt had been used because of its ease of availability and lack of seasonal dependence. The Bt strain IS1 was isolated from the soils of Bikaner, Rajasthan and was added to a mixture of silver nitrate to form silver nanoparticles [5]. The AgNPs synthesized were found highly toxic against many different multi-drug resistant human pathogens: Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa,…

    and humidity engulfing its physical atmosphere (Nevo, 2009). The fungus Sordaria fimicola can be easily obtained from both of these slopes and grown in a lab, making it an ideal organism for scientists to study. It produces fruiting bodies containing asci with eight spores. These asci arrangements in the spores can than be viewed under a microscope…
