Biology by definition is the scientific study of life, both past and present. Since biology touches almost every aspect of our lives, it is constantly changing and studied by scientists all around the world. If you look at the news, listen to the radio or search online, new studies are being done or being discovered and presented as current events. Your goal as new budding biologist is to work by yourself and presentan oral presentation and a written proposal about the latest trends in biology research/ studies (The paper must be published within the year). All topics have to be in the theme of biology this can include but not limited to: evolution, genetics, climate change, sustainable alternatives (biofuel), pollution, discovery of new species, and discovery in medicine such as cancer, Zika virus, etc. (cancer, has been taken
This is a first come, first serve assignment and there will not be repeated topics presented. The goal of this proposal is to help you organize your thoughts and topic and it allows me to give you helpful feedback that will improve your presentation.Your proposal should be typed and about 1-2 pages in length.

I need a printed copy of your article, attached to your proposal (Just the first main page) or you can email me a copy by the due date.
I’ll start off with by saying that there has never been a need for genetic therapy in my family….that I know of, so I wont be able to give a personal story regarding genetic therapy. I will say, however, that I would not be against it because God has given us the ability to change things as necessary, or at least what we deem necessary. I mentioned this last discussion, but I believe that God has created a set of laws for everything to abide by and we are just trying to understand these laws and how they work. If we have learned how to administer genetic therapy then that just means to me that God has given us the tools necessary, and the free will, to make changes as we see fit. I view it the same as if someone were to weight 350 lbs and then started eating healthy and going to the gym everyday. Over time that person could possibly change themselves from weighing 350 lbs to 200 lbs, I don’t think God would have a problem with that because God has provided us with the set of laws that everything must follow, to which that person followed to lose all the weight…..and become healthier
Being a Christian I do not agree with “tinkering” with God’s creation. I believe that in all honesty, God has a plan for all of us. God made each of us the way that he wanted us to be. If we were meant to look a different way God wouldn’t have made us the way that he did. Honestly I am on the fence about the whole genetic therapy idea. In a sense it is a good idea because it is safer than having drugs put in your body to help with an illness. But on the other hand, God has a plan for all of us, so coming up with a way to inject gene’s into cells is not a good idea. That would be messing with God’s plan, even taking drugs to help with illnesses is going against God’s will. Gene therapy would just be a way of prolonging your life, which for the family it would be a good thing, but in God’s eyes, he knows when each of us is suppose to go, so trying to stop the inevitable is going against what God has planned for us.
Diffusion – the passive movement of particles from a region of high concentration to a region of low concentration.Osmosis – the passive movement of water molecules, across a partially permeable membrane, from a region of lower solute concentration to a region of higher solute concentration
Hi I have a biology writing assignment that is due tomorrow, 24 hours, it is about describing the optimizations of the circulatory system and respiratory system of humans to effectively and efficiently get oxygen to all tissues and remove carbon dioxide from the body. It should be between 2 full pages to 3 full pages in length. it should be free plagiarism. here is more details: write a paper describing the optimizations of the circulatory system and respiratory system of humans to effectively and efficiently get oxygen to all tissues and remove carbon dioxide from the body. In this Thesis controlled paper, be sure to include information such as: •The importance of a four-chambered heart in human circulation; why does the heat need a double circuit? •Form and function of arteries, veins, capillaries. How does each allow and control blood flow to and from the heart. Include information about gas exchange in capillaries. •The form and function of the heart; how is the heart regulated (controlled)? •The mechanics of negative pressure breathing and control of breathing based on body needs. •The function of the structures of the respiratory system, including trachea and alveoli.
This paper should be between two (2) full-length pages and three (3) pages in length (double-spaced). Use standard margins and font sizes. You will have points deducted if a paper does not address all points while space exists in the three-page maximum. The paper should have: 1.An introduction, which ends with a strong thesis statement. 2.Multiple body paragraphs distinguished by subtopic, and a conclusion and connected by transition statements/words. 3.A brief, but encompassing conclusion paragraph.
Describe the historical pattern of growth of the worldwide human population since our origin. Include in this historic overview the changes that have happened technologically, medically, culturally and nutritionally to result in major population changes over time. Relate the growth of the human population to our ecological footprint and explain the idea of limits to population growth known as the carrying capacity. Relative to carrying capacity, what may result from unbridled continued growth of our population? How does the size of the human population contribute to environmental degradation? Why must we take the human population size into account when we attempt to develop environmental restoration projects?

How FDA Evaluates Drugs
FAQs about the FDA Drug Approval Process
Everything you always wanted to know about approved medicines (but didn’t know where to look)
Your job as a research scientist is to visit your local grocery or drugstore and document (3) dietary supplements and (3) over the counter FDA approved drugs. Use the above FDA links to explain your findings. Explain the claims of (3) dietary supplements and if you think those claims are legitimate, unreasonable or unhealthy. Explain the claims of (3) drugs and their side effects and if you think thoseside effects warrant the benefits of the drug. You will compose a report following the below guidelines. You will give an introduction discussing the difference between supplements and FDA approved drugs. Document your materials and methods of retrieval of information. Then explain your results from the information collected. Finally, write your conclusion/discussion to explain your research.
Laboratory reports will be written on an individual basis, and will follow a basic journal article format: Introduction/Objective, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion. Be sure to include citations where appropriate. Laboratory write-ups must be turned in by the beginning of the following laboratory session to avoid a late penalty.
1. All lab reports must meet the basic requirements: be word-processed, and include citations where appropriate. Reports should be double-spaced, while figure or table legends should be single-spaced. Pages should be numbered (top right corner).
2. Reports should be stapled. Do not use paper clips. Loose pages, or pages with no name, will not be graded.
3. Units: Be sure to include any relevant units in both the text write-up and in figures or tables.
4. Verb tense: Use past tense when reporting your own current findings, and the present tense when discussing the published work of others. Therefore, the Introduction will be written in the present tense, while the Materials and Methods, and Results and Discussion sections will be written in the past tense. This is in keeping with scientific tradition where published data is considered to be part of the existing theoretical framework, while new data (your experiments) are not yet considered established knowledge.
Each lab report will include the following sections: Introduction/Objective, Materials and Methods, Results, and Discussion.
1. Introduction/Objective: This section should provide a general background, so that the reader can understand the question being addressed in the experiment. This is the time to orient the reader to the problem with a short review of the current literature, and then explain the reasons for the particular experiment. This should lead the reader to the objective or purpose (objective) of the experiment being conducted.
2. Materials and Methods: In this section, you should describe how the experiment was performed, including equipment and supplies used. Be specific. Include names of materials, equipment, and reagents, along with equipment settings or reagent doses used in each portion of the experiment. Include any other information which is necessary for successful completion of the experiment. For example, include incubation times and temperatures, description of experimental diets, descriptions of controls, etc. This section should be in paragraph form; do not give a numbered outline.
If you are using a procedure or protocol that has been previously used and described by another investigator, it is common practice to briefly describe the procedure or setup, and then reference the previously published work. This is particularly important if you are adding to, or changing, the previous protocol.
3. Results: This section should include a description of your results and any data obtained during your experiment. The Results section should begin with a descriptive text of the results from each experiment. This should be in paragraph form, and should only include the facts—save the interpretations and explanations for the Discussion section. As you proceed through your data, include figures, tables, or drawings of your data, referring to each diagram in the text. Place each figure or table as close as possible to where you refer to it in the text. Do not put all your figures and tables at the end of the report. Be specific in the results text. In general, the reader should be able to read through the results text and be able to understand the main findings. Do not show calculations in the text or figure legends—only show final results. Include calculations in a Calculationssubsection at the end of the Results section. Make sure to include units in all calculations, and for all values given in the Results text.
For each figure (or table), include a legend. This should include the figure (or table) number, a title, and a short description. Figures should be sequentially numbered using Arabic numbers, and the title should be a sentence, ending with a period. Figure legends are placed below the figure, while table legends are place above the table. Table legends should be sequentially numbered using Arabic numbers. Following the figure or table title, include a brief description of how the data was obtained. Also point out any unique features that you specifically want the reader to notice. If several figures use the same procedure, you may refer back to the previous figure, rather than repeat the protocol information. Whenever possible, data in figures and tables should be prepared using a computer; pen and pencil drawings are to be avoided. Be sure to include labels for axes, symbols,etc, and include any relevant units.
4. Discussion/Conclusion: In this section, give a brief summary of the results of your experiment, and then address why these results are important. This is where you should interpret your results, and provide an explanation of how they integrate with the theoretical aspects of the experiment. Do your results support your original hypothesis (objective)? Why or why not? How do these results fit with the broader picture that you began with in the Introduction? Address any technical issues that may have affected your results. Also, describe any unexpected results, and how they modify your original hypothesis. Make sure you use specific figure numbers if you refer to figures in the Results section.
