3.1 The isolation of Aeromonas from several pond waters, healthy fish, and infected fish The isolate of A. hydrophila grown for 24 hours at 37C on Rimler-Shoots+novobiocin medium should show bright yellow color with white edge. Figure 1 shows the control of isolate A. hydrophila ATCC 7699 grown on RS+novobiocin medium. Isolate selection on RS medium resulted in 95 isolates, presumed to be A. hydrophila, which would run the phenospecies test (morphology and biochemistry), based on the protocol of SNI 7303 (2009), plus one control isolate the A. hydrophila ATCC 7699 obtained from Microbiologic Co. Figure 1. The Isolate of A. hydrophila ATCC 7699 Grown on the Rimler-Shoots Agar Medium + Antibiotic Novobiocin at 37C for 24 Hours 3.2 The

What part do the three seeds experiment?
The plant used in this lab was Phaseolus vulgaris, or the common bean. This plant does C3 photosynthesis. First, my partner and I got two pots with a bean plant in each. In order to get the most accurate and relevant results when compared to one another, the bean plants were relatively the same size. The plants beforehand each had two larger leaves, three smaller leaves, and three leaves in bud form.
At first, Gregor Mendel was a monk, and later he became abbot of the monastery in Brunn. His, now famous, experiments he conducted with the usual peas, which were grown in the monastery garden. There were a few specific conditions that allowed Mendel to get the specific results that he got: First of all, he was familiar with math and the theory of probability, thus he knew that in order to evaluate the results of crossing the peas, he needed to perform it a lot of times, in order to decrease the probability to commit any mistakes. Also, he started with observing specific inherited traits that and what was happening with them throughout generations. Secondly, Mendel chose the type of plant that was not codominant.
Name: Paul Meyer PS ID #: 1305816 BIOL 3311 Fall 2014 Lab Section: 16254 Date: 10/10/14 TA Instructor Name: Tess Doumas Writing Assignment 3: “Bearded (Brd) gene encodes for multiplication and thickening of chaetae and sensilla by interfering with neurogenic pathway” Introduction An important aspect of research is finding an appropriate model to use for performing one’s experiment(s). For biology and genetics, Drosophila melanogaster, the common fruit fly, has proven to be a suitable subject for over the last 100 years. In 1910, a small research group led by principal investigator Thomas Hunt Morgan at Columbia University first utilized Drosophila as a model organism to discover two fundamental concepts of genetics – chromosomal means
The study took a look at publicly paid for animal tests in the United States and the United Kingdom. The scientists used monkeys and rodents as their primary test subjects. Nearly 300 reports were collected from leading biomedical research publishers. Out of all of the acquired publications, only 59% of them proclaimed their study’s goal, the amount of animals that they used, and important traits of their test subjects. All of these factors are expected to be made public in order to display a credible and successful scientific experiment (Kilkenny et al.
The quantitative research approach with true experimental research design was adopted to evaluate the effect of soy flour in the control of various parameters of metabolic syndrome among post-menopausal women”.Simple random sampling technique was used for the study. In Andhra Pradesh, from Srikakulam district, Ecterla Mandal, Shermuhammad Puram panchayat was selected based on approachability, cooperation from authorities and facilities provided. Shermuhammad Puram panchayat consists of 4 villages. From 1 to 4 villages, for the control, study group I (25g soy flour), Study group II (45g soy flour), 3 villages were selected by lottery method. From each village, samples were recruited by using random number table.
In The Bean Trees, Barbara Kingsolver establishes the theme of hope for the future through the use of similes, motifs, and symbolism. Barbara Kingsolver was born on April 8, 1955. Being born in Maryland and growing up in rural Kentucky gave her a love for nature and a clear understanding of social discrepancies. After high school, Barbara continued her education at DePauw University and the University of Arizona. There she earned multiple degrees in biology.
He discovered a thousand of bats, 200 different kinds of monkeys, 315 humming birds, 350,000 species of beetles and a quarter million of flowers in which a variety is astounding. He said that Charles Darwin revolutionized in how we see the world. In his book, “The Origin of Species” (1859), he showed how creatures have developed through ‘natural selection’. They compete for resources such as food, water and shelter. The weaker ones die while the strong survivors slowly evolve over generations as they adjust to any changes in their environment.
Case 02: FoldIt Gamification Use : Healthcare Research FoldIt was developed by the University of Washington’s Centre for Game Science in collaboration with the Biochemistry department with the intention of deciphering a crystal structure for one of the AIDS causing viruses called the the Mason-Pfizer monkey virus (M - PMV), which, for 15 years, many of the top PhD scientists have been trying to decipher. FoldIt utilizes a game-like puzzle interface that allows people from all over the world to play and compete in figuring out various protein structures that fit a researcher's criteria. More than 240,000 players registered for the game and competed viciously against each other and found a solution to the structure of the M-PMV was found in 10 days, thus creating a major breakthrough in the AIDS research field What is govNov? govNow is a government-citizen interaction portal, where citizens can lodge complaints, commend or discuss government employees, their society and current political practices within their district, state or
Corn started as something farmers grew and planted on their own. That all changed in the 1930’s when hybrid corn was invented. Hybrid means a plant or animal that carries the two traits from its parents, or fertilizers. Hybrid corn can be resistant to disease and also produces a lot of corn. Farmers continue to buy hybrid corn seed from large agribusiness companies to grow on farms for it can be mass produced.
coli bacteria new traits. The pGLO plasmid that is being transformed into these cells contains genes that can give colonies of bacteria the ability of antibiotic resistance and a green fluorescent glow. Four different models were prepared and plated on multiple agar plate. After the bacteria was grown for three days in an incubator at 37°C; observations were made and recorded (Table 1). All of the plates were looked at for the amount of colonies grown, if growth was present, and if the colonies gained the ability to glow green.
He developed over three-hundred products from peanuts and one-hundred eighteen from sweet potatoes. In 1914 boll weevils destroyed all of the cotton crops so George taught farmers to grow peanuts. He created over three-hundred dyes, milk, flour, ink, plastics, wood stains, soap, linoleum, medicinal oils, and cosmetics. Working on the Carver farm, school taught by Booker T. Washington, and painting flowers as a kid helped influence his plant ideas. The most important decision he made was when he left the Carver farm when he was eleven.
Carver also made his assistants research the existing uses of these crops. Carver became one of the most known African-Americans in the early 1900’s due to his desire to learn and overall teaching ability. Carver made his own techniques to improve soil that had been used by using cotton. Carver told farmers to restore their nitrogen, with the help of other agriculturists, by using systematic crop rotation. Carver made a rotation of crops using soybeans, cowpeas, peanuts, and sweet potatoes.
