Jennifer Ackerman's main focus in her article The Ultimate Social Network, is that of the functions concerning bacteria within humans. Although scientists have had presumptions about humans being proficient in governing their body’s innermost structure, they soon come to recognize the sophistication of our inner space which holds an extensive plethora of bacteria and other microorganisms that lie within each and every one of us. Moreover, scientists' new and emerging view of how the human body operates, and the cause of increasing present-day diseases (i.e. obesity and different autoimmune disorders) are uncovered by analyzing effects of certain microbe species in our bodies. By italicizing on points such as the above, in conjunction with bacteria's genetic variations, and modern computing technology, the author proves that scientists are quickly progressing with the characterization the most prevalent species of microbes, which, in her opinion, is definitely paying off.
Throughout history, civilisation, existence, humanity has made boundless discovery, of which many handfuls, scientists have paved the way. Biochemistry and Biomedical sciences are arguably at the forefront of the battle against any harmful substances, diseases, mutations, and complications that threaten our phenomenal ecosystem. Organisms thriving within their niche is one of the many beauties of life. The fact that there is an ample amount of facts about the universe and science yet to be discovered intrigues me. Venturing into the realm of theories, whether it be extra terrestrial life, behavioural evolution or gravity, I believe there are fundamental questions to be answered, and as such, innovative and constructive theories that can be observed to be true.
These are two of the most important inventions known to mankind, one has helped map out the human body, discovered cures by isolating cells that cause them, the other has helped map out the universe. By the descriptions above these invaluable tools are known as the microscope and the telescope. Many medical and technological advances would not be possible without these two inventions. There are many discoveries that could be presented today, but instead this presentation will present a couple of these for each invention and how they challenged traditions and changed society for the good. The invention of the microscope, more than any other invention, has helped us unlock the secrets of nature.
Medicine is by means of biotechnology practices so much in detecting and remedying disparate diseases. Biotechnology is recurrently pondered on the same with biomedical research; moreover, there are copious amounts of other industries, which take benefit of biotechnology method for studying, cloning, and varying genes. Society has become familiar to the ... ... middle of paper ... ...licy, practice, and research. Bioethicists are apprehensive with the ethical questions that arise in the relationships among life sciences, biotechnology, medicine, politics, law, and philosophy. It also embraces the study of the more conventional inquiries of values ("the ethics of the ordinary"), which arise in primary care and other subdivisions of medicine.
For this, it requires integrated use of biochemistry, microbiology and engineering science. There are various different federations that work for biotechnology and help promote use of this new innovated field for public benefit and its environment. Focusing on this new emerging field of biotechnology can help our environment and focus on many unanswered questions yet at the same time the complexity such as bioethical issues, safety, bioterrorism remains fast-paced throughout our country in fact in the entire world.

All these information can be translated to make use of the plasticity phenomenon to restore the normal balance in the inhibitory – excitatory pathways. Thus Tinnitus is an ever challenging and intriguing research area with burgeoning interest set for even more dramatic advances in the near future. I am especially interested in the neuroplasticity changes accompanying tinnitus in relation to the excitatory amino acid GABA. Startle reflex would be especially useful in achieving these goals.

However, there are many controversies associated with stem cell research. Furthermore, researchers are exploring possibilities of gene therapy by looking at “susceptibility genes,” or genes in an individual tha increase the risk of having MS. In this way, these susceptible genes can be further studied and used as targets for therapy. (NINDS, 2013; Mowry, 2013). One of the ways in advancing our knowledge and understanding of MS is through continuous research built off on current knowledge of the disease.
Archaea have emerged as the most primitive organisms yet discovered (Wikipedia #8). This is exciting because Archaean functions can give humans invaluable insight into some of the most basic functions that facilitated life on our planet. Furthermore, the study of primitive organism and the conditions they require for survival can clue scientist in on extraterrestrial environments that may possibility support life similar to our own. Like bacteria, Archaea are prokaryotes (Article 1). However, Archaea do have several unique features such as the branched hydrocarbon chains in their membranes which are attached to glycerol via ether linkages.
Many of these pathways have been investigated and studied, and results have come to some while failures have come to others. One of the most recent, brilliant technologies to be brought to life from the study of genetics is gene therapy. As Panno (2004a) indicates, scientists have begun to imagine the possibilities of actually changing a living organism’s DNA, possibly making the specimen stronger, healthier, and more resilient to deadly diseases (n. pag.). Many dilemmas, most ethical and religious, arise from this thought process, but the fact that it is possible remains.
