A nation-wide lobb...

Genetics essays / Biology In Crime
Of all the factors that can influence criminal behavior, biological influences can definitely play one of the more important roles.

While it is key to the study of evolution to develop a theory to explain how species can change over time, it must also be supported by evidence from the scientific study of the natural world. One of the difficulties faced by many theories, such as Lamarck s, was a lack of such evidence. Even Darwin's theory, which is the most widely accepted today, had to be proved with scientific advances and ...

Genetically Engineered Plants Genetic engineering has some history of good and bad. In 1989as a result of the food supplement Typtophan, 37 people died, 1500 were permanently disabled, and 5000 were very ill as result of high toxin levels in the food. No one knows the future side effects. Such as in August 19994, corn crops grew three inches tall and then suddenly fell over dead, becau...

THE GENETICS OF FRUIT FLIES This lab’s purpose was to determine the genetics of fruit flies, including but not limited to: raising them, feeding them, mating them, se them, separating them, and mating them again. We then had to determine which traits were dominant in flies, in my case either the wild eyes or the white eyes, by crossing the flies and through phenotypic ratios we w...

SHOULD WE GENETICALLY ENGINEER OURSELVES? Should we use new genetic information to alter our own DNA to make ourselves more adept? Last winter, scientist made a major break through in genetic engineering. They finished a complete map of DNA of a complex organism. Although the animal that they broke down is a simple flat worm, over 40% of its DNA sequence match our own. This is an astou...
