A Review of the Film Primer by Shane Carruth - A Review of the Film Primer by Shane Carruth This week I’m reviewing a film that was not hugely publicized, Primer. I’ll be telling you whether it’s a must see cult film to be or whether the film wasn’t publicized for a good reason. Basic run down of the story is that a group of amateur inventors who want to create something more than the simple low profit creations they have come up with so far. They create a machine which slows down or speeds up time of the space inside it. After discovering this ‘device’ the group uses this to travel, a few hours at a go, through time....   [tags: Papers] 489 words

Rules for Radicals: A Practical Primer for Realistic Radicals, by Saul Alinsky - “That citizen sinks further into apathy, anonymity, and depersonalization. The result is that he comes to depend on public authority and a state of civic-sclerosis sets in” (Alinsky, 1971). This statement perfectly describes what is happening to the people today. People are no longer concerned with what is happening around them. The world today is living in an individualization phase where there are more people who know more stuff about the celebrities, latest fashion and gadgets, rich lifestyle, etc....   [tags: Rules for Radicals]

The Development of Primers for Unknown Thermophilic Bacteria at Vulcan Hot Springs - The Thermus Aquaticus project’s purpose is to identify a species of thermophilic bacteria found in a local hot spring, Vulcan Hot Springs, through genetic sequencing and analysis. The polymerase gene in other Thermus bacterias has proven useful in genetic reactions. The Vulcan bacteria grows at a higher temperature than other thermophilic bacterias, giving it the potential to have a more effective polymerase gene than what is currently available.

The Roman Soldier: Primed for Battle - To climb the social ladder a person must be, in one way or another, more powerful than whom they are passing in life. As this is true for an individual, it is also true for an assemblage of individuals. Whether it is a village, city, or country, to survive you must be stronger than your challengers to defeat them. On the largest scale you would need an army to accomplish this feat. For centuries the Roman Empire was the most powerful civilization in the world and this was due to the invincibility of its military forces and prowess of its soldiers....   [tags: Roman History ]

Structures and Roles of Telomeres - Structures and Roles of Telomeres Telomeres are essential structures in eukaryotic cells. Through repeat nucleotide sequencing of TTAGGG and their six associated protein complexes, they provide a “cap” over the rest of the chromosome, which protects the genetic material contained within the chromosome from instability1. Without the telomere structures, chromosomes are prone to tearing due to the action of nucleases and other damaging components within the nucleus. Torn chromosomes prove to be unstable, often fusing end-to-end or rearranging....   [tags: catallyst, cells, chromosome, telomerase, DNA]

Identifying Novel Solo-LTRs Within an Individual - Q.1. To determine the solo-LTR region I first ran an electronic PCR on s240c3, s165c5 and s399c8 primers. I then aligned the PCR products to each other using a series BLAST searches, identifying a related sequence of ~968bp expected to be the same in each PCR product. Using BLAST I identified the start and end points of this sequence in relation to each of the PCR products of the 3 primers used in the experiment, allowing me to determine the direct repeats and thus pick out the Solo-LTR sequence and pre-integration site....   [tags: Research Analysis] 1982 words

Protein disulfide isomerase (PDI, EC 5.3.4.1) is a eukaryotic oxidoreductase that catalyzes the oxidation, reduction, and isomerization of disulfide bonds in nascent polypeptides [2]. The subcellular localization and its function suggest that PDI plays a key role in the folding of proteins delivered to the secretory pathway [3]....   [tags: Biochemistry]

Thermal stability is a critical property for many proteins biotechnological applications as it implies longer life-times and frequently higher tolerance to the presence of organic co-solvents, extreme pH values and high salt concentration or pressures (Vania Brissos e.t al. 2014). Directed evolution through the error-prone PCRs is the procedure to carry out iterative mutagenesis for the protein parent genes. Enzyme azoreductase can reduce azo dye whose compounds are linked to bladder cancer in humans and to nuclear anomalies in intestinal epithelial cells in mice....   [tags: biotechnology, mutations]

Using PCR and Gel Electrophoresis to Determine Genotype - Using PCR and Gel Electrophoresis to Determine Genotype In certain situations, it is necessary to identify DNA retreived from a sample. When there is a small sample in need of identification, Polymerase Chain Reactions are used to multiply the DNA in the sample in to many identical samples. The DNA retrieved from the reaction can then be imported into an aparatus using gel electrophoresis to compare the sample of DNA to other samples. In our experiment we learned the how to replicate tiny samples of DNA into usable amounts and how to analyze the specimine using gel electrophoresis....   [tags: Papers] 582 words
