Celiac Disease And Gluten Intolerance

- Celiac disease affects one in every one-hundred and thirty-three people. And while there has not been a specific test or way of knowing exactly how to diagnose gluten intolerance it is estimated to be effecting six to seven percent of the population. That is just some important background information about celiac disease and gluten intolerance. The problem put into question for this particular proposal is whether or not there are enough gluten free options available at the dining center. Of course one could argue, “just get it without bread” or any other form of gluten but for some, including myself, who actually suffer from celiac disease even the slight cross contamination can cause one to...   [tags: Gluten-free diet, Coeliac disease, Gluten, Wheat]

- Abstract Abstract: Strong evidence was found that horizontal gene transfer occured between two fungal species. Genetic sequencing and compartive genomics, with specific attention to a loci containing the ToxA gene, showed that the two loci on Stagonospora nodorum and Pyrenophera tritici-repentis species are nearly identical and could not be derived from inheritance from a common ancestor. This gene transfer resulted in increased virulence of the P. tritici-repentis wheat pathogen sometime in the 1940's....   [tags: Biology Fungi Genetics Genomics]
