    recognize the essential role of biology, our attempts to truly unify the universe will remain a train to nowhere." - Robert Lanza. This quote shows the importance of how much biology has on our lives. Understanding biology unlocks tons of information about our lives and the world around us. Biology is in everything we do. We don 't notice it, but it 's a very big part of our life. It gives us a better understanding of our life and to see how beautiful this world is. Biology is always in shows and movies

    Abbey Simmons Hoff 2 9 May 2014 Aquatic Biology What is aquatic biology? Aquatic biology is very similar to marine biology in that you study ecology, behavior of plants and animals, and microbes; however, instead of the main focus being saltwater, aquatic biologists study things like rivers, wetlands, ponds, and other freshwater resources ( Being an aquatic biologist comes with many crazy experiences, some in college, others with diving, and some with preserving the environment

    Southern blot Various molecular biology methods are used to investigate the information of genomic entities from different origins. One of the core technique in the field is Southern blot, which is used to detect DNA molecules of interest among many other DNA sequences and to retrieve information about their identity, size, organization and abundance within a genome. The technique was named after its inventor Professor Edwin M. Southern, a renowned British molecular biologist who developed the procedure

    Biology is the science of living systems. It is inherently interdisciplinary, requiring knowledge of the physical sciences and mathematics, although specialities may be oriented toward a group of organisms or a level of organization. BOTANY is concerned with plant life, ZOOLOGY with animal life, algology with ALGAE, MYCOLOGY with fungi, MICROBIOLOGY with microorganisms such as protozoa and bacteria, CYTOLOGY with CELLS, and so on. All biological specialties, however, are concerned with life

    Biology      1. The virus is made up of five parts and is in the size range of 10 nm-300 nm in diameter. The first is the coat made up of protein that protects the virus to a point. Next is the head that contains the genetic material for the virus. The genetic material for a virus is DNA. The two other parts are the tail sheath and the tail fibers that are used for odd jobs. I believe that a virus is not considered to be a living creature due to the fact it is a parasitic

    1.4.5 Biosensor Biosensor and related bioarray techniques are rapidly growing fields. A biosensor is an analytical device that converts the concentration of the target substances into an electrical signal via a combination of biological or biologically-derived recognition systems, either integrated within or intimately associated with a suitable physico-chemical transducer. Essentially, biosensors consist of three parts: recognition, a transducer and a signal output. A biological sensing element

    862 Words  | 4 Pages Mechanism of Resistance to Lysozyme The complexity of the composition and structure of peptidoglycan is well known (Le Jeune et. al., 2010). Its pathological effects are greatly enhanced by various modifications and substitutions to its basic composition and structure (Clarke andand Dupont, 1992). While some bacterial species are sensitive to lysozyme, the majority of bacteria (like some important human pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, E. faecalis, and Proteus

    1.4.3 Thermostability of Lysozyme on SDS-PAGE To determine the thermostability of lysozyme enzymes, Akinalp et. al. (2007) exposed the supernatant of various recombinant bacteria to various temperatures (from 37C to 100C) for 15 min followed by centrifugation at 15,000 rpm to remove denatured proteins. The supernatant was then mixed with an equal volume of trichloroacetic acid and the protein collected by centrifugation. Protein analysis was then performed using a denaturing polyacrylamide gel
