Martian soil: Astronaut Mark Watney is able to grow crops using the water he made and Martian soil. In reality, the soil on mars does contain the right nutrients for plants to survive there. However, the amount of nutrients in the Martian soil varies depending on the location, so additional nutrients might be needed. Besides this, the Martian soil contains a lot of metal. Crops grown in Martian soil might be toxic, so this can be
%P(as received)= 5.8 ± 0.008% and %P(dry) = 5.95 ± 0.008%. While, %P2O5 (as received)= 6.63 ±0.008% and % P2O5 (dry)= 6.80 ±0.008%. This shows that the fertilizer also has macronutrients other than water and phosphorus which can be useful for plant growth. This experiment is successful since the results obtained
6) Which type of polyploidy plants will work best with this type of investigation? 7) Should both plants contain the same number of chromosomes? Hypothesis Polyploidy plants doe require large amounts of water in order to grow to their full potential as opposed to non-polyploidy plants. Aim To determine whether polyploidy plants require more water in order to grow to their full potential. Variables Independent variable – The amount of water Dependant variable – The growth of the plant Controlled Variables 1) The plants will be similar to each other in chromosome numbers.
The reason high CBD strains are considered the most ideal sources of CBD isolate is that they are rich in cannabionoids and contain more of these chemical compounds than THC and other chemical compounds that make up the marijuana plant. Other CBD strains such as Blue Dream and Sour Diesel contain more THC than CBD, hence they are not ideal for this purpose. Once the plant reaches maturity, it is harvested and put through some form of extraction. Extraction separates the cannabionoids, flavonoids, trichomes, terpenes, as well as other chemical compounds from the harvested cannabis plant. Common methods of extraction
1. Explain why evolution often selects traits that promote genetic diversity. Evolution often selects traits that promote genetic diversity because genetic diversity boosts the chances that at least some members of the population will have a combination of traits that will allow them to survive and reproduce in a changing environment. Organisms that rely on asexual reproduction have virtually identical offspring, and they are successful in a stable environment; however, conditions rarely remain constant on Earth. Therefore, evolution favors traits that promote genetic diversity because the conditions on Earth are always changing, and genetic variability provides organisms a better chance of survival than organisms that do not have genetic variability.
Beanium Isotope Lab Introduction: Isotopes are explained as the variations of the number of neutrons that an element may have. Some isotopes are more common than others. This experiment was performed to help visualize the different isotopes of an element and show how some isotopes will appear more often than others. Purpose: To visualize and understand isotopes Materials: Refer to Lab Sheet “Isotope Experiment- Beanium” Procedure: Refer to Lab Sheet “Isotope Experiment- Beanium” Observations: Number of Bn atoms per isotope Group mass of Bn Isotopes (g) Brown Beans 28 12.57 Black Beans 100 21.80 Plain Beans 98 24.34 Total: 226 Not Applicable Calculations: Mass of one Bn atom % Isotope by number Brown Beans 12.57/ 28 = 0.44 g 28/226 x 100 = 12.39 % Black Beans 21.80/100 = 0.21 g 100/226 x 100 = 44.25 % Plain Beans 24.34/98 = 0.24 g 98/226 x 100 = 43.36% Total: Not Applicable 100% Discussion:
However the exponential growth of the colonies and the presence of clumping were due to excess amounts of mixture added to the plates. A smaller amount of 0.5ml would have sufficed. On the TRP- and Iso- plates, growth was observed under all three concentrations of tartrazine and carmoisine (0.2g/ml, 0.4g/ml, and 0.6g/ml). This shows that tartrazine and carmoisine were able cause mutation in the yeast cells. This could include reverse point mutation and mitotic gene conversion.
However, there are a number of advantages to bioremediation, which may be employed in areas which cannot be reached easily without excavation. The foundation of bioremediation has been the natural ability of microorganisms to degrade organic compounds. Bioremediation is not a panacea but rather a natural process alternative to such methods as incineration, catalytic destruction, the use of adsorbents, and the physical removal and subsequent destruction of pollutants. The cost of moving and incinerating pollutants is at least ten times that of in situ biological
In some ways, GMO technology is different than other in which thousands of genes from each parent are transferred randomly to the offspring. Genetic engineering moves discrete genes or blocks of genes at a time. A great example of how GMO’s are good is how scientist manipulated genes into tree to absorb more CO2 and reduce the threat of global warming. Also different diseases could be prevented by detecting organisms and treating them with a certain gene that could get rid of the disease. Gene technology has helped our knowledge of the universal nature of the genetic code; it helped scientist plant breeders to develop useful cultivars that can not be made in
In “The Science Of Success” by David Dobbs, it is explained how success is determined by genetics. Using an example, between two flowers. A dandelion which is seen as the more stronger trait, and an orchid which is seen as the more fragile trait. “So hold a provocative new theory of
