Genetically Engineered Foods – Pros And Cons

The world has seen many changes and advances over the last century, but possibly none that hold as many possibilities as genetic engineering.  Genetic engineering is turning up in more and more places, and it is almost certainly here to stay.  Just as computers and plastics changed most aspects of living since they were invented, […]

The Making Of The Cat

IN THE VERY BEGINNING, about 4.6 billion years ago (give or take a few years), a small ball of rock, water and gas had come to be and immedi- ately set about the process of combining its atoms into more and more complex arrangements. Thus began that most wondrous story, the evolu- tion of life […]

Aging Theories

This report outlines the main theories of how the process of aging works. Since researchers have not discovered a universally-accepted theory of aging, the theories discussed are potential explanations of how we age. The likelihood of each hypothesis is considered roughly equal. The different theories discussed focus on the workings of different parts of the […]

Immunostaining and In Situ Hybridization

The study of gene expression provides invaluable insight into an organism’s structure and function; how it is that from a mere embryo genes can control which cells, tissues, organs and limbs will develop, providing the organism with the inherited traits that specifically adapt it to its forthcoming environment. Mutations of particular genes are sometimes associated […]

Cloning Should Not Be Legalized

Cloning Should Not be Legalized Human cloning has been a very controversial issue for a number of years. In order to understand cloning better is important to recognize what cloning is. A clone is an exact genetic replica of a DNA molecule, cell, tissue, organ, or entire plant or animal. This may be done through […]

The Use of Recombinant DNA Technology Can Only Benefit Humans

The development of recombinant DNA technology is, in biological terms a very recent discovery. It was founded in 1973 by Cohen and Boyer, the first two scientists to successfully transplant a section of DNA from one bacterium and insert it into another using restriction enzymes, creating the first transgenic organism1. As with every biological discovery […]

The benefits of, and peoples concerns about, the use of recombinant DNA technology

Humans have used plants and animals for thousands of years, adapting many things to suit their requirements. The process of artificial selection, whereby only the organisms with the best characteristics are allowed to breed, genetically changes these organisms.Recombinant DNA technology allows us much greater control over genetic manipulation. This can range from genetically engineered micro […]

What do You Understand by Recombinant DNA Technology

There are two essential substances found inside bacterial cells required before the process can begin. Present in the cytoplasm of a bacterial cell are a number of small circular pieces of DNA known as plasmids. Also present within the bacterial cell are restriction enzymes which cut DNA molecules at specific sites. By selecting the correct […]

The Benefits of the use of DNA Technology in Agriculture outweigh the Disadvantages

There is much controversy surrounding the topic of genetically modified foods, a subject that provokes an emotional debate as some of the ideas contradict many moral and religious beliefs. Many ‘disadvantages’ are merely the moral views of people, and have little or no scientific link, such as the belief of consuming a plant with a […]

What is recombinant DNA and its advantages and disadvantages

In recent years science has been using recombinant DNA to genetically modify animals, plants and now technology has advanced to the point where there is constant speculation on manipulating human DNA. Recombinant DNA, or more commonly known as ‘genetic engineering’ involves “the combination of DNA from one organism with DNA from another organism”. There are […]

Pglo Transformation Lab Report

Introduction Transformation is the transfers of virulence from one cell to another, through the transferring of genetic material. It was originally postulated in 1928 through the works of Federick Griffith, a British microbiologist. Griffith observed that the mutant form, non-virulent form, of the bacteria Streptococcus Pnumoniae could be transformed into the normal, virulent form, when […]
