Description of Unknown Mutant Allele Phenotype Drosophila melanogaster (fruit flies) are organisms that contain multiple types of mutations. A few examples of these mutations involve eye color, wing formation, body size and body color. When comparing the wild type version of D. melanogaster to mutant D. melanogaster with unknown code 651, it was shown that the mutant contained a mutation in the bristles located on the fly’s thorax and head. These mutated flies have short and curly bristles (Figure 1, A arrows) compared to their wild type counterparts which have long and straight bristles (Figure 1, B arrows) in the same locations. This mutation has led us to …show more content…
This image correlates with short and curly bristle observations previously stated. Image B is the wild type fly and shows how bristles are typically straight and long. Buzzcut clearly differs in length and structure on the thorax and the head when compared to the Wild-Type side panel (Image B).

It does this by using a molecule to tell all the cells where to go and what to do. Within the cell there is a gene called Sonic hedgehog that causes the ZPA to change its plan and this causes a deformation. Fly geneticists were the ones to discover this by using fruit flies. These geneticists turned genes on and off during the development of the flies. Once the flies were fully developed they noticed that one of the flies had a part of its body that looked different than the rest (Page 52).
In conclusion Peeta is a very nice and caring person and he often does actions that make him look like a hero. Peeta shows many examples of being a hero as in giving Katniss the bread at the beginning of the story. He also defends himself and makes sure no one strikes him down to the ground. Peeta is also very agile he will know if something bad is happening and will spring to action immediately. That’s why Peeta would be described as the hero in disguise.
Chaotic and reckless is usually what kids are known for. A lot of the time people don’t really see what’s behind all the chaos and recklessness. In Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu she does a good job showing that people influenced by bad decisions can lead to chaos. Marie Lu uses character, situational, and symbolic archetypes to convey the idea that people are easily manipulated into making bad decisions that can lead to chaos.
What is an archetype character? Well the definition of archetype character is in literature, an archetype is a typical character, an action or a situation that seems to represent such universal patterns of human nature, an archetype, also known as universal symbol, may be a character, a theme, a symbol or even a setting. Well as it said on google so in my own definition i would define archetypal character in a hero's journey as someone who tries to save someone or acts as if the hero and that's just my understanding of it if I understood it well. While watching Guys and Dolls I thought I won’t be able to find a hero or someone who is even close to being the hero in the movie to write my pages for this assignment.
While reading Batman Nightwalker the idea of trust is portrayed by Bruce’s skeptical outlook on life after his parents have passed. As an example, in Batman Nightwalker Bruce is betrayed by Madeline, a prisoner who was aiding him until she tricked him into enabling her escape. Throughout the book, the idea of careful trust is important to Bruce as he enters adulthood. The dark, explorer, and mentor archetypes are present in the novel and relate to Bruces’ feelings of being careful who you can rely on. Batman Nightwalker is a novel written by Marie Lu, originally published in January 2018.
“We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard defining edges” (Gene Wolfe). What Gene is trying to say here is that we get to unfold the true meaning of what the author is trying to tell us when it comes to symbols. Symbols will always stand for something, they will represent an idea or characteristic and shape the person in the story or even in reality. Symbols are everywhere throughout Lord of the Flies and are hidden through every flip of a page.
“The saddest journey in the world is the one that follows a precise itinerary,” which has not been more so than for Phoenix Jackson whom every year due to her love for her grandson embarks on a dangerous one-day journey to the city of Natchez. In this 1941 short story, “A Worn Path” by Eudora Welty, protagonist Phoenix Jackson, an elderly African-American women, whom despite her visual impairment, old age, memory loss and senility determines to procure medicine for her sickly grandson. Regardless of Phoenix Jackson’s limitations and negative experiences, she continues her journey undeterred. In order to characterize Jackson, Welty utilizes symbolic and situational archetypes to portray her as a strong, persevering, courageous, and loving women throughout her journey.
We decided to follow this tiny creature. It would come and go from time to time. One of the subjects of this team decided to see what would happen if he killed the fly. With one tiny touch the fly died instantly. Thus 2 hours later 2 more flies came along.
In most books, authors use motifs to symbolize a larger theme. In the Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses a variety of motifs as significant symbols. This is especially evident with the boy’s physical characteristics. Golding uses the main characters’ hair to show that natural desires must be pushed aside in order to have a successful relationship.
Lord of the Flies, a literature piece by William Golding, takes place on an abandoned island where English boys are left to fend for themselves after a plane crash. The symbol of face paint is present throughout the novel, representing how people assume different personalities by hiding their insecurities. In the beginning of Lord of the Flies, the concealment of the face paint represents how Jack disguises his insecurities. He discovers the concept of face paint after trying to come up with ideas to improve his hunting abilities. Soon after putting it on, Jack “looked in astonishment, no longer at himself but at an awesome stranger”(Golding 63).
1. Apple Cider Vinegar Trap. Apple Cider Vinegar has a lot of uses and that includes killing fruit flies. Gather the ingredients and materials for the trap: • 2 tbsp apple Cider Vinegar • 1 tbsp sugar • 1 liter water • Dish soap • Container Using the container, mix the vinegar, sugar and a few drops of the dish soap with 1 liter of water, make sure that you mixed the solution well and place the mixture on the area where you see most of the flies. The smell of the vinegar will attract the flies and once they come in contact with the trap you made, they will be killed because of the soap.
Lice are obligate parasites that reside on mammalian hosts. The evolution of lice is very closely linked with changes in their host organisms, providing an excellent example of coevolution between parasites and their hosts. Patterns of host migration can be support and better understood by studying lice. Studying lice’s sensitivity to host environment, geographic distribution, and genetic mechanisms of evolution can assist in studying any respective host. HOST SENSITIVITY Being highly specific to their host is a basic feature of most successful parasites.
*In such cases, larvae become sexually functional and under favourable condition metamorphose into adults. *This type of neoteny includes sexually mature axolotl larvae of Ambystoma. Factors influencing neoteny –*Research indicates that neoteny occurs because the hypothalamus of the brain fails to produce the hormone that causes the pituitary to stimulate the thyroid gland to produce growth hormones that trigger metamorphosis.
Let 's talk about their legs, I went on Encyclopedia.com and read the passage “ Moschidae” and the passage says “ Jumps like a pogo stick. Why they jump like that? They jump like that because their legs are long and strong so they can jump higher. Pouches? Encyclopedia.com’s passage “ Moschidae” says “ Possession in the male of deep inguinal scent pouches”.
