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

The Development of Primers for Unknown Thermophilic Bacteria at Vulcan Hot Springs - ... Primer design is done after clean-up of the sequences. Most of the work in cleaning, analyzing, and comparing sequences is done in CLC DNA Workbench, a software program designed to work along with GenBank. DNA samples are grown, isolated, and amplified in the lab at Cascade High School. They are then sent to Idaho National Laboratory (INL), where our project mentor, Dr. Francisco Roberto, uses a sequencer (a piece of equipment more expensive to buy and run than Cascade High School can afford) to determine the bases of the Vulcan bacterium....   [tags: Genetics]

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

Polymerase Chain Reaction - One may view cloning as copying a living thing and producing multiple copies. People may think of cloning rabbits, sheep or humans. In the field of molecular biology, however cloning is viewed at a genetic molecular level, where a piece of DNA is copied on a large-scale by genetically copying tens to hundreds of thousands of identical DNA fragments. Researchers are developing new methods of cloning by using polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

Since it’s first introduction ten years ago, PCR has very quickly become an essential tool for “improving human health and human life (TPCR)”. Medical research and clinical medicine are profiting from PCR mainly in two areas: detection of infectious disease organisms, and detection of variations and mutations in genes, especially human genes. Because PCR can amplify unimaginably tiny amounts of DNA, even that from just one cell, “physicians and researchers can examine a single sperm or track down the elusive source of a puzzling infection” (TPCR)”....   [tags: essays research papers] 912 words

Early observations showed that disulfide bond formation proceeds much faster in vivo than in vitro, suggesting the existence of a catalyst for protein oxidative folding in living cells [1]. 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]

Functional Genomic Analysis of C. elegans Using RNA Interference - Introduction Before we talk about this important experiment, do you know what a nematode is. Specifically, this experiment used Caenorhabditis elegans, C. elegans for short. C. elegans is a little worm (just like the kind you find in the ground), but has a very special place in modern biochemistry: scientists have mapped its entire genomic sequence. This sequence lets scientists know the character and location of all C. elegans' genes. However, biochemists do not yet fully understand what each gene does and the goal of this experiment is to find the function of each gene within the worm....   [tags: Biology Worm Gene Caenorhabditis nematode] 2883 words

Marshal McLuhan – Charlatan or Visionary? - Marshal McLuhan – Charlatan or Visionary. Marshal McLuhan has been described as both a “media prophet” and a “pop professor” (Wilcox). Although his book The Medium is the Massage was rejected by some academics (Wilcox), it became a popular success outside the academic world. His ability to coin such phrases as the “global village” and his ideas on how media influences culture allowed McLuhan to become an icon of the counterculture movement of the 1960’s. Some scholars argue that McLuhan’s voice was even “swallowed up in the popular cultural movement” (Surette)....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essays]

If we hold humans to have a morality, then we must also conclude that the decisions and policies designed by those humans will be influenced by their moral element.
