Sequoiadendron Giganteum is one of the tallest species of evergreen trees found in the west coast of the United States. Its distinct thin and elongated leaves are adapted to prevent tree desiccation in the dry forest. Due to its evergreen nature the leaves are infrequently shed, which produces relatively small amounts of litter on the ground. These trees retain most of their organic matter leaving approximately less than 10 percent of any element in leaf litter (Zink 1994). Decomposition of pl...

DNA replication is the process though which the DNA in our cells gets copied. The process of DNA replication in our cell is far more complex but to use DNA in experiments, the process of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is used my many scientists. Through PCR scientists can make billions of copies of the DNA sequence they wish to work with.

Ribosomes are responsible for providing accuracy in the translation of mRNA into proteins. The process is flawless and leaves little room for mistakes, which could lead to mutations. tRNA is responsible for bringing the correct amino acid to the ribosome. mRNA has maintained a genetic code where a specific sequence on a tRNA is intended for one amino acid, sometimes offering one amino acid more than one sequence.

The Canadian Horseshoe Falls is the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. It got its name from its shape, which is similar to a horseshoe. The length of its brink is 2,600 feet and its height is 167 feet. The volume of the water that passes through this falls per second is 600,000 gallons. A third of the Canadian side of Niagara Falls is situated in US territory, according to the US Geological Survey.

A cell cannot divide and go under meiosis or mitosis without having its DNA duplicate. This process is also known as DNA replication, which consists of different complicated steps that involves DNA Polymerase, DNA ligase, nucleases, lagging strands, leading strands, Okazaki fragments, RNA primers and many others. This article will talk about the different steps that involve with DNA replication.

What is the largest organism on Earth? It comes down to three contenders: Pando, the heaviest grove of Quaking Aspens in Utah; the Sequoia or Redwood trees found in California, biggest by height and volume; and the honey mushroom known as the Humongous Fungus, or armillaria ostoyae fungus near Malheur National Forest Oregon. The more you learn about these gigantic living organisms, the more you will be amazed at what an interesting world we inhabit.

Most anyone that has taken a genetics class has heard of Gregor Mendel. From his close observations of inheritance in Pisum stivum, the garden pea, he came to deduce the laws of inheritance that we apply today. The first of his laws is the law of equal segregation and the second is the law of independent assortment.

Viruses are small agents made of proteins that protect a DNA or an RNA molecule. Their purpose is to ensure the survival of their genomes, but because they lack the machinery required for replication, they infect living organisms and use their machinery to replicate their genomes and its protective proteins.

Charles Darwin’s theory of Natural selection is a characteristic of life that is evident in all environments. This theory, typically referred to as “survival of the fittest” relies greatly on genetic cariaton. How has the meaning of natural selection changed over time? Through medical advances that have been made is genetic variation slowly losing its purpose? This article goes into some detail of natural selection and how it can be seen differently overtime.

Stem cells can be used in different kinds of ways, such as for research purposes or for treating patients. Stem cells are found to have the ability to differentiate into any specialized cell types. These stem cells can be the key to the future of the medical community, because they have the ability to repair damaged tissues and organs. Researchers are still continuing to figure out the hidden characteristics of stem cells to allow them to understand and discover the different ways that they can ...

Geneticists often investigate individuals who are suffering a rather rare medical disorder such as sex-linked disorders like hemophilia, which is a condition in which bleeding can be dangerous since blood does not easily clot. They would take note of someone who displays a medical disorder, defined as a propositus, which then leads to an investigation of their familyÂ’s medical records. This process of scavenging through the family tree and taking note of the common trend of the particular ph...

DNA replication is an important process, which all-living organisms have. The replication process takes place in the cell. DNA is double stranded and it has four nucleotides that combine together to form the double helix. The nucleotides in the strands get attached together, through phosphodiester bonds. Those phosphodiester bonds form through DNA polymerase.

The human-micro-biome is one of the most understudied topics in the sciences. Yet it has the largest effect in our daily lives. What are some of the things that people invest the most in? Deodorant, toothpaste, face wash etc... each of these products comes with a purpose, to kill or suppress bacteria on the different surfaces of our bodies. The bacteria in our mouths that produce biofilms known as plaque, and the bacteria in our armpits that live off of the skin cells and oils excreted from o...
