Biomed Study Guide

PPE
Personal Protective Equipment i.e. gloves, face shield, safety glasses and clinical attire
Donning putting on
Doffing taking off
Forensic Science
The application of scientific knowledge to question of civil and criminal law; Rape, testing blood
Experimental Design
A design in which researchers manipulate an independent variable and measure a dependent variable to determine a cause-and-effect relationship;
(label) DNA
A double-stranded, helical nucleic acid molecule capable of replicating and determining the inherited structure of a cell’s proteins. Shaped like a double helix
Control
In an experiment, the standard that is used for comparison
Independent
The variable that is varied or manipulated by the researcher.
Dependent
The measurable effect, outcome, or response in which the research is interested.
DNA charge
Negative
Chargaff’s Rule
A=T C=G
Adenine binds to Thymine and Cytosine binds to Guanine
DNA Analysis 1.2.3. reread intro
The testing of DNA samples that exists on the evidence collected from a crime scene
Restriction enzymes
Enzyme that cuts DNA at a specific sequence of nucleotides GGCC
HIPAA
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. protect individuals personal info.
Manners of Death
natural, homicide, suicide, accident, undetermined.
Cause of Death

Spiral, zone, line, grid, link, wheel or ray.
Fingure prints
Radial loop, Spiral, Whorl, Tented Arch, Plain Arch
RFLP
Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism
Gel Electrophoresis
Procedure used to separate and analyze DNA fragments by placing a mixture of DNA fragments at one end of a porous gel and applying an electrical voltage to the gel; heavier is more toward the top
DNA Strands
2 strands of nucleotides twisted together, held in place by hydrogen bonds
DNA , chromosomes, genes relate
genes are in the chromosomes and chromosomes make (are in) DNA
CSI
Crime Scene Investigation;
Documents the crime scene in detail and collects any physical evidence
Medical Examiner
A physician who performs an autopsy when death may be accidental or violent. He or she may also serve in some jurisdictions as the coroner; Medical degree; Residency; determines manner of death and cause of death.

know some steps of autopsies
cut in Y shape- under breast, take pics of body in bag, take any evidence off of body, opens stomach and weighes contents, records all identifying features – eye color-, tools: bone saw,hammer w/hook,scalpel,scissors,breadknife
**body systems systems function
Drug test.
