The Importance of The Five Senses in Frankenstein
Words • 600
Pages • 3
There are five senses, sight, sound, taste, and smell people use in their life. With these five senses, people are able to deduce what is happening and they are able to interpret what they see. Using sight, sound, taste and smell individuals can make an imaginary picture of what events took place in the picture or in the book. Without these five senses, human life can be different. The way we use this sense make the difference between humans and…...

Shown within the foods we have nowadays. The method of genetically modifying a plant or creature includes controlling its genetic material to make characteristics that cannot happen through conventional crossbreeding. GMOs are developed to have preferred traits counting expanded abdicate, dry season resilience and defense against bothers. A few of the foremost flexible crops, which are utilized as fixings in numerous food items, are generally composed of GMOs. Moreover known as genetic engineering, genetic modification includes the method of taking…...

A Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) is a life form whose genes are manipulated using non traditional breeding methods with genetic engineering. Commonly found in everyday foods, GMO products provide essential nutrients for a healthy and well balanced diet. The effects of these methods have a wide variety that range from growth hormones on livestock to longer shelf lives of food. On the outside, it seems like an ingenious use of technology to increase the production and lasting effect of products,…...

Humans have evolved from apes and early human species to what inhabits the planet today, homo sapiens. Bipedalism separated the first humans from apes and other four-legged animals. Large and complex brains were starting to develop when the first stone tools were found around 2.5 million years ago. The most recent human trait to be developed around 100 to 200,000 years ago, the capacity for language. These traits were achievable because the size of the skulls and brains for homo…...
Genetic Engineering Is a Controversial Subject in the Scientific and Social World
Words • 2804
Pages • 12
Genetic engineering is a field that studies the modification of organism through the manipulation of their genetic material. It is a method in which a new animal or plant can be produced from specific genes obtained from a different animal or plant. The required trait for that gene will then be conveyed in the new organism (N. R. C., 2004). This method is a highly controversial subject within the scientific and social world. The application of genetic engineering is prevalent…...

There have been many different ideas about the function of the brain throughout history. Some prominent figures had their own ideas about the brain: Aristotle thought it was a radiator to cool blood, Descartes thought it was an antenna for the spirit to communicate with the body, and now we know that it is behind everything we do. It controls our hearing, touching, seeing, moving, speaking, tasting, feeling, thinking, and anything else one could think of. The brain is what…...

Whether someone should vaccinate their children or not has been a huge debate for hundreds of years. People try to say that vaccines do more harm than good, but there is evidence that shows vaccines are more beneficial than they are harmful. “The vaccines against hepatitis B, pertussis, pneumococcal disease, and rotavirus all have the possibility of certain side effects, but the harms of disease prevented by the vaccines outweigh the risk of any adverse effects" ("The Benefits of Vaccination…...

John Searle, an American philosopher is famously known for his contributions on the Philosophy of mind and language majorly regarding the Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems in the contemporary world. Scientists and some individuals have come to believe that AI programs are capable of possessing human thinking capabilities.

An Analysis of the Effects of Violations of Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium Conditions on the Allele Frequency of Drosophilia Melanogaster Populations
Words • 1012
Pages • 5
The interaction between genetic variation and natural selection is one of the most important concepts in modern biology. The product of this interaction, evolution, which is a change in a population's allele frequency, is responsible for the great complexity and diversity of life seen on earth today. Allele frequencies of a non-evolving population (one in which the allele frequencies are not changing) can be elegantly modeled using the Hardy-Weinberg theorem. For a population to be at equilibrium, five conditions must…...

A Laboratory Report on an Experiment About the Genetics of Fruit Flies
Words • 606
Pages • 3
This lab's purpose was to determine the genetics of fruit flies, including but not limited to: raising them, feeding them, mating them, sexing them, separating them, and mating them again. We then had to determine which traits were dominant in flies, in my case either the wild eyes or the white eyes, by crossing the flies and through phenotypic ratios we  were to determine genotypes. My partner was Eugene Montoya. We chose the white flies because they were more attractive…...

Eye Color Pigments Drosophila Melanogaster
Words • 530
Pages • 3
The eye color pigments of Drosophila melanogaster are composed of red and brown pigments. The purpled eye color of purple (pr) mutants is the result of a defect in the synthesis of the wild-type pigment, drosopterins (Kim, Yim 1995). Drosopterins are produced non-enzymatically by the condensation of PDA with 7,8-dihydropyran (Brown 1986). The pathway leading to the biosynthesis of drosopterin was proposed by two scientists named Brown and Dorsett. The first step in drosopterin biosynthesis is the formation of H2NTP…...

Mendelian Genetics and the Dihybrid Cross of Drosophila Melanogaster
Words • 1196

Genetics is a widely studied topic in science. The purpose of this experiment was to analyze and determine the dihybrid cross between drosophila and the mutations that are common. Because they have a very short reproduction period, Drosophila are commonly used to analyze mutations and dominant/recessive traits. Gregor Mendel introduced Mendelian Genetics, and Mendel’s dihybrid cross is used as reference to compare the mutation combinations for the offspring Drosophila (Holmes, 2006). Based on the class results from crossing the heterozygous…...

Coleoid cephalopods are shell-less molluscs such as octopuses, cuttlefish and squids (Amodio et. al., 2018). There are about 700 cephalopod species currently in existence and they can be found in oceans throughout the world; in all climates and various depths of water (Ikeda, 2009). The loss of the external mollusc shell is seemingly linked with an increase in brain size and as a result, increased cognitive abilities (Kuba, Byrne, Meisel, & Mather, 2006).
