There are many different substances available or added to the soil that can assist in plant growth. The main elements needed for plant growth are Carbon, Hydrogen, and Oxygen which the plant gets from the air and water. There are other macronutrients which include Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium which the plant either gets from decaying organic material or fertilizer.There are other minor nutrients a plant needs for growth such as Sulfur Calcium, Magnesium, Copper, and Iron. These elements are found naturally occurring or are added to fertilizer. People throughout history have used fertilizer to improve plant growth beginning with Native Americans who added a dead fish to plants coming to today where we use either chemical or organic fertilizers.
Many scientist today cut portions of DNA with restriction enzymes and include a piece of new genetic material into the bacterial cells. The only way this transformation can take place is if the bacteria is competent and is grown to the right stage in which they are dividing the most. In order for this to happen,one would treat the bacterial cells with Calcium Chloride (CaCl2). The bacteria used in this lab was E.Coli and it was an ideal bacteria because it can be easily grown on agar. Hypothesis The transformed E.Coli with the ampicillin resistance gene will be able to grow in the ampicillin plates and it would have a green glowing color.
E. coli also contains a simple genome, which allow for higher level of genetic modification and insertion (Cooper, 2000). One of the most common methods of recombination of E. coli DNA is through inserting a plasmid into the bacteria. The objective of this experiment is to transform bacteria with a pGLO plasmid giving it the resistance to antibiotic and light
We cannot imagine our life without genetic engineering. Genetic engineering it is science which is interested in studying the genetic makeup of living creatures, from the plant , animal and human, in order to know the laws that govern the qualities genetic of these creatures, hoping to intervene in those qualities positive intervention, and modify or repair the defects. The role of genetic engineering is an attempt to collect recipes Useful taken from the living organisms and transferred to another organism, and this is done by isolating the responsible genes and then added it to the new organism, which earns new character ,and function that has never possessed previously .which mean than genetic engineering has many advantages and
This allows for the cure of DNA mutation diseases, along with elimination of diseases from the human species. The opposition of CRISPR’s use states that technology is risky, will permanently change the human genome, and open the path of designer babies. The risk of CRISPR is minimal. Thus, the lives saved will for the greater good will outweigh the possible side effects. The worry of altering the genome can be viewed as not an issue as the elimination of diseases will increase the quality of life for people.
starches) and oxygen as a waste product. The formula for photosynthesis is 6CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) + 6H2O (Water) in the presents of sunlight and chlorophyll → C6H12O6 (Glucose)+ O2 (Oxygen). In order for photosynthesis to occur the plants have to have energy from sunlight and chlorophyll. The rates of photosynthesis are affected by the amount of water, temperature, and the intensity of sunlight. Just like respiration, photosynthesis has two phases but they do different things.
This is very similar and related to the previously discussed objective of being able to identify biological processes that require energy. Modeling the way organisms capture and store free energy was achieved in several different labs, including the cellular respiration lab. In the lab, we modeled how an organism can capture and use energy through facilitating the germination of seeds. Germination is a very complex biological process that requires the capture and storage of energy for later use. Modeling this process allows further investigation and greater understanding of how energy is captured and used by
In what way?in plants These methods of selective breeding can potentially positively influence world food production in these ways improved quality of seed grains, increased levels of proteins in forage crops. It is also beneficial by helping the plants to be more resilient to insects and disease. They are also making them to have a capacity to grow on lands that are not suitable for them to grow in which can be a benefit and that way you can get more food and a variety of different plants even if it is in a land which can’t suit them. This show that it helps people ● What is the purpose of selective breeding?The purpose of selective breeding is to develop livestock whose desirable traits have strong heritable components and can therefore be propagated. ● What are the pros and cons to genetic engineering?Pros and Cons of Genetic Engineering.
(APECSEC.org. 2015) • The risks involved in carrying out the process of GM organisms are said to be too great to overcome the reality that may occur once this process has occurred. (Genetic Engineering Cons. 2015.) • By creating plants that are so resistant to pests and disease , bugs have had to adapt themselves to the strong pesticides used and therefore are harder to get rid of , such as bed bugs in hotel rooms.
LITERATURE REVIEW Inorganic fertilizers provide rapid nutrition and give plants with the nutrients needed to grow healthy and strong. Inorganic fertilizer, also called as synthetic fertilizer, is manufactured artificially and contains minerals or synthetic chemicals and it is which help a plant to grow faster. Effective use of Inorganic Fertilizers Effectiveness in using these chemicals has good and bad effects on the environment especially on the health of a human being. Fertilizer has turn into essential to modern agriculture to feed the growing population. Use of fertilizers, especially, the chemical fertilizers has brought in blessings on humanity, which helped contain hunger and death in changed corners of the world.
