    For this reason, they ask them the questionnaire about their lifestyle. Results: The control group had a mean telomere length of 6140.43±175.67 base pairs while the experimental group had a mean length of 5171.74±145.39 base pairs. Therefore, the null hypothesis is rejected. However, the questionnaire given to both groups revealed other significant differences. The schizophrenics had less education and less routine exercise; they had

  • The Nature Of Our Behavior

    2243 Words  | 9 Pages

    The Nature of our Behavior The genes that make up the human body determine our behavior, even before we are born. Yet the way we are raised may also have an impact on the way we behave, but how much does nature or nurture determine our personality of who we are during the developing as children. Thomas B. Lewis, M.D. once said “While genes are pivotal in establishing some aspects of emotionality, experience plays a central role in turning genes on and off. DNA is not the heart’s destiny; the genetic

  • Spectroscopic Studies Of A Ruthenium

    Spectroscopic Studies of a Ruthenium (II) Tris-diimine Complex with a Cationic Ligand By: Akiva Raskind Mentor: Dr. Thomas Strekas ABSTRACT We report the effect of variation in concentration of calf thymus DNA on the fluorescence emission of OM-73 and OM-120 in different media. Both intercalative and charge dependent binding may occur between the OM-73 compound and DNA. Through fluorescence titrations the binding constant of OM-73 in a salt solution was estimated. Binding of OM-73 to ds-DNA is

    inherited the disease. Causes of the Disorder This disease is genetically inherited and is a dominant characteristic, therefore unfortunately the offspring of a victim has 50% chance of inheriting the disease. The DNA contains four types base: A (adenine) and T (thymine), G (guanine) and C (cytosine). These four letters make up the genetic alphabet and they spell out the commands for every single cell and organ of the body and also determine all the characteristics of the person. In

  • Similarities Between Watson And Rosalind Franklin

    397 Words  | 2 Pages

    Watson and Crick’s paper discussed the discovery of the double helix in DNA. It included the angles created by the bonds between molecules that created the double helix nature of our DNA. In order to do such, they used Rosalind Franklin’s ‘Photo 51’ with hinted at the fact that our DNA was, in fact, a double helix. As a supplement to this photo, they made calculations based on numbers that described the x-ray crystallography from Franklin. The monoclinic unit cells that Crick saw in the DNA were

  • Case Study: Mega Base Pair Mycoplasma Mycoses

    1106 Words  | 5 Pages

    Sanger and his colleges designed, synthesized and assembled a 1.08 mega base pair Mycoplasma Mycoses JCVI-syn1.0 genome. The design of the genome was based on two laboratory strains of M.mycoides. There were 19 polymorphic differences between the synthetic genome and the natural genome. They marked the synthetic genome with four watermark sequences to replace one or more cassettes in regions experimentally demonstrated or predicted to not interfere with cell viability. The designed cassettes were

    qcold, qcal and Ccal. To be as accurate as possible we conducted this same test three more times and used the averages from all Ccal calculations as the final Ccal. After finding the Ccal of our calorimeter, we were able to integrate the acid and base pair CH3COOH and NaOH. In our first trial we added 10 mL of both CH3COOH and NaOH. Before mixing the two together in our calorimeter, we took the initial temperature. After mixing the two solutions together we took the final temperature. From this point

  • Explain Why The Ions That Are Responsible For A Strong Base

    283 Words  | 2 Pages

    responsible for making a solution of a base or an acid is H+ or a proton. The pH scale measures the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. On the pH scale there are numbers that indicate how strong or weak the acid or the base is. On the pH scale the numbers range from 0-14. 0 - 2 stands for a strong acidic, 3 - 5 for a weak acidic, 6 - 8 means the solution is neutral, 9 - 11 for a weak base, and 12 - 14 for a strong base. There are three theories that are used to define a base and an acid. The first theory

  • Acids And Bases Lab Report

    314 Words  | 2 Pages

    Acids and bases are very important. We clean with them, we eat them, and we use them to help in chemistry. The ions who are the cause of acidic properties is H+ ions, or protons, and for basic properties, it's the OH- ions, or hydroxide ions. all of that is based on a theory called the 'dissociation of water' (which is H2O--> H+ + OH-). So the more H+ there is in a solution, the more acidic the solution is, and the less H+ there is, the more basic it is. That is why there is H+ in solution factors

    chloride solution to the experimental Petri dish. Results were observed and recorded. Results In station 1 when the acid was added to the experimental Petri dish the bioluminescence of the powdered firefly lantern started to dim and once the base was added the lantern began to brighten up again. The controlled Petri dish remained bright during all four of the experiments. The results are as shown in Table 1. In station 2 after the experimental Petri dish was taken out of the fridge and
