Eric Fernandez Evidence for DNA Charge Transport in the Nucleus There are many wonders about humans and the world we live in that scientist today are still trying to decipher. It can be argued that scientist will continue to search for answers until the end of time. While some things may remain a mystery forever, one thing is certain: the transfer of genetic material between the chloroplast and nucleus is related to stress in plants. According to the abstract, this study “focuses on the active processes by which the nuclear genome might be acquiring or removing DNA sequences from the chloroplast genome.” Moreover, the study discusses the possible effects that can result from a stress related environment during such a transfer between the nucleus and chloroplast. Mainly, this study is being done to enhance our knowledge of DNA sequences from the Chloroplast genome. Also, the effects that arise when different transfers are done. When it comes to all of this information, one can easily see the connections to the topics we have discussed during our lectures. This study easily relates to topics we have discussed in class. In previous chapters, we have deeply studied DNA and all aspects of it. Also, in our lectures we have discussed chloroplast in depth. During lectures, different types of transfers, whether it be from the nucleus or another organism, were heavily discussed throughout the past six weeks.
All of this information is quintessential mainly because it is incredibly important to understand the world that we all live in. Also, through heavy research, scientist will continue to learn more about these different areas…
1. In the pharmaceutical, food or brewing industries, your work could include:
• developing new products
• monitoring production
• quality control
• checking the safety of existing products
You would normally work 9 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday. For some jobs you may need to work shifts, and during busy periods you may work longer hours. Part-time work is also available.
Your work would mainly take place in a laboratory. In the manufacturing industry, you would also…

4. The biggest nutritional concerns for lactose intolerant people are how to meet their calcium and riboflavin needs.
1. It uses two strains of bacteria to convert waste and leftover food into bio-gas, which is then used for energy.
2. There are three types of bacteria involved. The first type of bacteria turns carbohydrates into simple sugars, amino acids and fatty acids. The second type of bacteria is responsible for eating the waste and…
Biofuels are a cleaner replacement for diesel fuels. Biofuels are mostly made out of fatty acids (which can be found in oils) and esters (which are in biodiesels). Biodiesels have become so popular due to their cleaner emission into the atmosphere; they break down to high oxygen percentages. Biodiesels are easily made by adding a base but need high levels of heat to lower the viscosity. In order to create biodiesel you must use an oil to extract glycerides. Then…
The effects of concentration gradient on osmosis and diffusion
Bio 151/Mrs. Eischen
Diffusion is the transfer of molecules back and forth across a membrane, Osmosis is the act of water diffusion. They are important factors in the maintenance of a cells life by allowing the cell to import/export nutrients…
… it may eventually be regarded as a law.
For example, the law of gravity, thermodynamics and gas laws. Biologists are very conservative about using the term law
- Hooke looks at cork coming up with the cell
- Cytology- bed rock of cell bio
- Cells actually do chemistry
- Mendel – monk who did the pea plant experiment
- Where all three strands come together is the modern time
- DIC = differential interference contrast
- Must play with the light or use stains to see cells
The following are the expectations for your NCC Online Learning course, BIOS 105.

> The instructor for this course is expected to respond to all student comments and questions in a respectful and timely manner, to facilitate learning with a high level of interaction and, to hold to standards indicative of the…
Bio 100 Section 11
I can consider myself as a fan of Cheerios, a cereal brands. I love cereal because of its taste and its nutrition. Whenever eating cereal, I always look at the nutrition facts table and feel great that I am eating good stuffs. However, I always wonder how cereal could help me to get away from hunger and not until Bio100, I still have that same question. Now, after learning about metabolism, I could know how cereal is transformed into energy. A sequence called metabolic…

Induce Pluripotent Stem Cell
Induction of Pluripotent stem cells is one of the most controversial topics that many Biology scientists want to discover. In the article titled “Induction of Pluripotent Stem Cells from Adult Human Fibroblasts by Defined Factors,” scientists do the research on how to develop the pluripotent stem cells from somatic cells (Takahashi et al. 2007). Induction of Pluripotent Stem cells is the process that reprograms human somatic cells into pluripotent…

Parkinson’s Disease Organismal/population level:
The objective of this paper is to relay the estimated incidences of Parkinson’s disease by age, gender, and ethnicity as well as the organismal aspect. The diagnosed Parkinson’s cases through 1994 and1995 were identified amongst members of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program. Kaiser is one of the most credible and variant largest health maintenance organizations in California. Each case of Parkinson’s was…
the same for the ones after him. Pat was “brave enough to make his own choices and knew the consequences of these choices, to be strong enough to live with those consequences, and to he happy with his choices”, as Michelle Roy states in one of her essays.
Pat relates to Roy’s quote in many different ways just from the one decision he made. He had to be an adult and take his actions and future into his own hands. When chose to go into the Armed Forces, he was a strong man who was happy with his…
