Several factors were identified as to the reasons why many and still a number of Filipino students have poor performance in science, these are the following: the quality of teachers, the teaching and learning process, the school curriculum, the instructional materials, and the support

  • Genetic Engineering: The Pros And Cons Of Genetic Engineering

    1301 Words  | 6 Pages

    The creation of a perfect human being is a future which many scientists, philosophers and even several political intellectuals have envisioned as the best fate of the human race. To achieve this dream, scientists have carried out enormous amounts of research in the field of genetic engi-neering. It is now possible to regenerate full human organs, like a liver or a kidney, to replace damaged ones in patients with chronic diseases. Research has proven that although there are many pros and cons on

  • Characterotypes In My Family

    707 Words  | 3 Pages

    Heredity is basically the passing on of genetic traits from parents to offspring. Both phenotypes and genotypes are passed down from one’s parents. A genotype is the genetic code of one’s cells. These genetic codes consist of paired alleles and often fall into three categories: homozygous dominant (BB), Homozygous recessive (bb), and Heterozygous (Bb). Phenotypes are the physical expression of genotypes, for example, whether someone has freckles vs. if someone does not have freckles. Just like all other

  • The Importance Of Rice

    1287 Words  | 6 Pages

    due to increased gene flow or mutations of a number of repeats of a given genotype for a given SSR. In addition, natural selection mechanism could be another source of this high genetic variation within the rice genotypes studied. On the other hand, the relatively low genetic variation among these rice genotypes could be attributed by sharing of same SSR profiles among themselves. The low genetic variation among these genotypes could explain the probability of sharing a common ancestry despite the fact

    observed among the genotype groups in all the carcass traits. The live weights were 975, 950 and 916g for the PXP, BXP and BXB genotypes respectively. The PXP genotype showed a numerical superiority in slaughter weight (886.67g), followed by the BXP group (856g) and lastly the BXB group (826g). The dressed weights were 736.67, 708.33 and 700.00g in the PXP, BXP and BXB genotypes respectively. The dressing percentages were 75.83, 75.17 and 74.50 in the BXB, PXP and BXP genotypes

    cross, thus they are stable in the transmission from one progeny to the next one. In other words, genotypes are not much permanent because they are separated or broken by processes of segregation (separation) and recombination which takes place during meiosis process. Allele frequencies and Genotypes in the population will be remained constant with passing of time. Allelic frequencies and Genotypes can be written as p2+ q2+2pq= 1 . • HW Equilibrium Conditions For HW equilibrium to exist, number

    for fatty acid composition are laborious, time-consuming and difficult to perform for large sample size. A non-destructive method for the screening of seed samples would also allow high throughput analysis in plant breeding and genotype selection where the seeds of a genotype are limited. Near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) is a technique which has been used to screen intact seed samples for oil content and fatty acid composition in different species including rapeseed and sunflower. Studies

  • Crop Improvement In Agriculture

    1016 Words  | 5 Pages

    1. Introduction Crop improvement has a long hystory over thousands of years ago and has been known since the domestication of crops (Rashid et al., 2011). Crop improvement is the most significant subject matters in agriculture including the genetic modification of plants to fulfill consumer preferences and needs. Crop improvement includes conventional breeding and biotechnology. The developments in biotechnology have brought to the forefront an interdisciplinary science that is revolutionizing 21st

  • Temperament Differences In Child Development

    1200 Words  | 5 Pages

    Temperament is defined by Martin (1994) as it refers to individual’s behavioural tendencies are existing early in life and are comparatively stable during growth and different situations. As it is also cited in (Bates, 1989; Goldsmith et al., 1987), that temperament is considered to be built in the biology of an organism. The above definition gives a clear explanation that a person’s temperament is the genetic built up, it is an innate component of their lives and it is constant throughout an individual’

    6)[3] Relationships between Prakriti and genome is therefore important. Functionally, it will involve creating three organized databases capable of intelligently communicating with each other to give a customized prescription, human constitution (genotype), disease constitution (phenotype) and drug constitution. The ‘Golden Triangle’ of Ayurveda, modern medicine and modern science will converge to form a real discovery engine that can result in newer, safer, cheaper and effective therapies.(figure

    1458 Words  | 6 Pages

    Achromatopsia Introduction Achromatopsia is the dysfunction of the cones in the retina. It may manifest itself as either complete or incomplete achromatopsias (2, 3). Complete achromatopsia is when none of the cones function. The image below represents how a person with complete achromatopsia may perceive colour as they can only see grey, white and black. This type only affects a very small amount of the population in comparison to the people with normal vision and with other types of colour

    determined by the genotype, which is the genetic makeup of a particular organism. The phenotype is visible amongst the physical appearance of the organism. However, the genotype of the organism is not the only factor that affects the organism’s phenotype because there is a distinction between simple traits and complex traits. While simple traits represent that genes directly affect the phenotype, complex traits include the influence of various environmental factors that affect the genotype, which is revealed

  • The Pros And Cons Of HPV Vaccination

    1839 Words  | 8 Pages

    From a worldwide public health prospective, reducing deaths from cervical and other HPV induced cancers is arguably the most important goal of an HPV vaccination program. Sustainable vaccination programs that protect as many women as possible from persistent infection by at least HPV16 and 18 would seem to be the most practical means of approaching this goal (Schiller and Haefliger 2006). Two prophylactic vaccinations against HPV have been licened by US Food and Drug admintration for use of young

  • Recurrence Risks In Counselling

    1169 Words  | 5 Pages

    Determining the recurrence risks in genetic counselling is very important. Risk of being affected by a particular genetic disorder is based on the genetic nature of the disorder and the pedigree of the particular family being counselled. The family member being counselled is usually a relative of the proband. Risks for single gene disorders can be estimated by using basic Mendelian principles, while the risk calculation might be complicated in disorders with decreased penetrance, variability of expression
