An Experiment Determining the Role of Pheromones in Psammotermes Hybostoma
Psammotermes Hybostoma Throughout the years there have been many research experiments conducted on the members of the Rhinotermitid subfamily. Many experiments involved the termites’ sex pheromones and trail pheromones. There is one species of this subfamily that is one of the last remaining that has not been researched...
Can the Strain of Pseudomonas Syringae C-9 Be Used as Desirable Ice Formation Nuclei?
Ice Nucleation There are many particles used today for cloud seeding that are either chemicals or artificially made. Scientists studying Ice nucleation and cloud seeding are trying to find particles that serve as ice formation nuclei that are desirable for the environment and the economy (Maki et al., 1974). There is resea...
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 Analysis of the Experiment for Killing Mycobacterium Dirtices
Abstract The goal of this experiment was to calculate the adsorption rate of the newly discovered mycobacteriophage Treedirt. Adsorption rate, and from there latent period and burst size, were all calculated by using the data collected from serial dilutions and weekly plaque assays carried out over the course of thr...
Pikachurin, the Most Ironic of Proteins
Pikachurin: The Most Ironic of Proteins Being a scientist, chemist, biologist or anything falling into the fields of science in general is perhaps considered by the general public to be one of the most serious professions in the world. The constant monitoring of calculations, test results, experiment design and thousands...
A Research on the Ethical Treatment of Stem Cells
“How did a single cell – the zygote, or fertilized egg – manage the colossal feat of expanding into a highly complex individual?” (Parson 29). This question, one that has been rooted in centuries of studies and research, is at the base of a heated debate now rising exponentially in the concerns of scientists and theologians...
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...
The Possibility of Treating All Diseases through Stem Cells
Stem Cells are cells located in organ tissue all in your body. They can be used to heal what was thought of to be incurable. With the research that has been going on with stem cells scientists have figured out that adult stem cells can cure over 70 “incurable” diseases and disabilities including diabetes, spinal cord injuri...
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...
The Importance of Proteins in the Human Body
Protein Essay Most people think of food like meat or chicken when they hear the word protein. Everyone tells you to eat proteins and then you will grown muscles. ”You will need more proteins if you want to build muscles” I hear these words all the time. But most of them dont even know what proteins really are, or what...
