An Experiment on How Gram-Positive and Gram-Negative Cell Walls Share Similar Optimum Growth Temperatures
ABSTRACT: Bacterial cell walls provide a buffer and a means of protection from environmental stressors, such as temperature and pressure. There exists two unique cell wall structures in bacteria, namely Gram-positive and Gram-negative cell walls. A Gram-positive species’ cell wall contains a thick peptidoglycan structure w...

Steinbock's and Singer's Views on the Ways to Maximize Pleasure and Minimize Pain for Animals
Meat and chicken have always been around to eat. Young children never question whether it is okay to eat, but where it came from. Growing older those children learn the cruel and unnecessary pain those animals are put through, but most still continue to eat meat. Singer explains the need to maximize pleasure and minimize pa...

An Analysis of Anaximander's Conclusion on the Origin of Beings and Things
Thesis: Anaximander’s conclusion that one thing did not have an origin is untrue, and all things had an origin, even the first beings. Anaximander argues that in order for infants and young children to survive, they must be cared for by an older figure. Therefore, the first human beings must have been cared for by animal...

An Experiment to Transform DNA Found in the Bacteria E. Coli
Abstract: The main objective of this experiment was to transform DNA found in bacteria. A plasmid was used on E. coli and with the use of heat shock, was inherited by the bacteria which caused the E. coli to become resistant to ampicillin. Also in the plasmid was GFP which verified the hypothesis by glowing green under UV...

A Lab Experiment on the Examination of the Homeotic Genes and Their Regulation of Embryonic Development in the Fruit Fly
Introduction In this lab we used the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, to examine homeotic genes and their regulation of embryonic development. Homeotic genes are responsible for the regulation of segmental identity. Ed Lewis laid the groundwork for understanding homeotic genes, earning the 1995 Nobel Prize along with...

The Different Invasive Plant Species and Their Impact on the Ecosystem
Invasive Species of woody shrubs and trees in Maryland are a concern because any invasive plant species can threaten the lives of native plants and animals hence harming ecosystems. The dangerous thing about invasive species is that they have mechanisms to colonize and to out-compete and exclude native vegetation. By the st...

A Study on NF-kB and Its Relationship with Inflamation, and the Alternative Pathway
NF-kB is a known pro-inflammatory pathway because of synthesis of cytokines like IL-1 and TNFα. Inflammatory pathway is a tightly regulated pathway of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. The structurally non-similar TLRs and NF-kB share the same signaling cascade (IKK complex). This complex include 2 kinases i...

The Crucial Role of Ants in the Well-being of the Earth's Ecosystem
The Role of Ants in the Ecosystem It is said that the world would crumble if all ants ceased to exist. It
isn't entirely clear if that is true, but there is very little doubt that
ants contribute greatly to planet Earth. Ants provide a direct food source
for many animals, who in turn are preyed on and contribute food...

The Controversial Nature and the Potential Benefits of Stem Cell Research
“Stem cell research is the key to developing cures for degenerative conditions like Parkinson’s and motor neuron disease from which I and many others suffer. The fact that the cells may come from embryos is not an objection, because the embryos are going to die anyway.” ~ Stephen Hawking Introduction Stem cell resea...

An Experiment to Help Identify the Different Leaf Pigments
Introduction: Photosynthesis, by definition, is “the process by which plants, algae, and some bacteria transform light energy to chemical energy stored in the bonds of sugars. This process requires an input of carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) and produces oxygen gas (O2) as a waste product” (1). Although photosynthes...

An Analysis of Photosynthesis in Plants
Introduction Plants are autotrophic, meaning they can harvest their own energy by converting light energy into chemical energy through photosynthesis, which involves the light reactions and the Calvin Cycle, but they can also perform cellular respiration when light is not available (Reece et al., 2014). Since carbon dioxid...
