The novel I read was “The Watsons Go To Birmingham.” In this story, it talks about a family that is known as the “Weird Watsons”, and is about their life at school and at home and when they take a family trip to their mother's hometown in Alabama during the time of segregation. They live in Michigan, in their family there is three kids and two parents. The oldest kid is in the sixth grade and his name is Byron; he is the king of the sixth grade and always picks on his little siblings, the narrator is Kenny and he is in the fourth grade; he is always getting bullied and picked on by the king of fourth grade Larry Dunn and his older brother, and last but not least is Joetta which is in kindergarten; she always falls for the stuff that Byron says and is always telling on her older brother Kenny. During the school year Kenny had beaten up the king of fourth grade Larry Dunn because he was tired of getting picked on for being too
When Watson and Crick published a paper in 1953 describing the structure for DNA, the study of biology and the world as a whole were forever changed. DNA, short for deoxyribonucleic acid, is the building block of all living things on Earth. It holds the codes for every quality of every being, ranging from the size of a bacterium to the length of the beak on a bird to the shade of a person’s hair. Since this breakthrough in the 20th century, the discovery has left a tremendous mark on science in multiple fields, including biology, pharmacology, genetics, and many more. However, the revolutionizing is still ongoing. The finding has paved the way for the future to be significantly impacted through molecular medicine. DNA continues to transform the world and its societies, and molecular medicine will leave an impact on human beings, as well as all living things, for the rest of humanity.
The modern age of genetic study first began in 1953 by Francis H. C. Crick (1916-2004) and James D. Watson (1928) with the identification of the DNA molecule with its four bases: adenine, cytosine, guanine, and thymine. Watson and Crick laid down the foundation for genetic engineering and provided a model of DNA, which was in the shape of a double helix (Genetics and Genomics Timeline 1953). The first accomplished genetic experiment using living organisms occurred in 1973 by Herbert Boyer (1936) and Stanley N. Cohen (1935). Both Herbert Boyer, of the University of California at San Diego, and Stanley Cohen, at Stratford
Before scientists could begin to genetically engineer organisms they first needed to understand DNA. In the 1860’s Greggory Mendel was one of the first scientists to do research on genetics and DNA. He studied pea plants and the inheritance of certain traits past down from the parent plants to their offspring. In the 1950’s Francis Crick and James Watson helped make the discovery of DNA and later made a model of the double helix structure. From this point on it was widely accepted that a person’s heredity can be determined by the genes that are passed on from their parents (16).
The school of psychology created by John B. Watson that refers to the belief that behaviors can measured, altered, and trained is called Behaviorism. Behaviorism was established with the publication of Watson's classic paper "Psychology as the Behaviorist Views It" (1913). (citer psychology today). Behaviors advanced to become a prevailing force in psychology, for a period of time staring in the 1920s through the 1950s. Behaviorists believe that all behaviors are an effect of conditioning. Regardless of their disposition or background, any person could be disciplined to act in a distinct form given the right type of conditioning. Behaviorist believed that all behavior could be made clear without the compulsion to contemplate their consciousness
James D. Watson is a molecular biologist, geneticist and zoologist. He is well known as one of the two men who discovered DNA. The other man who helped discover DNA is Francis Crick. Francis is a biologist, neurologist and a biophysicist.

In the end, DNA is a very useful molecule which can and has been used vastly in science and technology to improve the lives of many people in the present and for the future generations. DNA technology has been the pinnacle of medical science due to the role it plays in an organism therefore has been one of the key fields for scientists to explore allowing it to advance massively over the past few years and continue to progress in the foreseeable future.
DNA technology and advancements in technology in general, advancements in scientific discoveries and scientists who shared the love of evolution and wanted to further Darwin’s work brought an outstanding amount of evidence and information to be used to further expand on the theory of evolution. One of the most astonishing technological advancements was the mapping of the human genome and the genome of other species and the ability to compare DNA. With this gene sequencing were analyzed and compared showing various similarities and differences, this ultimately strengthened the idea that somewhere millions to billions of years ago there is a common ancestor of all species. We can see that many of the same genes that perform very specific duties are almost identical among species. Hox genes, which are found among all complex species, are a very important discovery because they show how closely related species really are. The same genes that code for one body part in one species are the she same genes that code for the same body part in a non-related species.
James Eagan Holmes was described as a quiet, standoffish, 24-year-old graduate student from San Diego who had earned a bachelor's degree in neuroscience in 2010 from the University of California, Riverside. Holmes then enrolled at the University of Colorado in June of 2011, taking graduate courses in neuroscience at the university's campus in Denver. He later dropped out of a doctoral program at the University's medical school, where he had been doing research.
