  • Chromosome 6 By Robin Cook Organ Transplants
    409 words
    Chromosome 6 by Robin Cook Organ transplants once considered risky now are almost routine. However, the odds against a perfect genetic match are astronomical, and until that hurdle is overcome, no organ transplant is a sure thing. In Robin Cook's Chromosome 6, a researcher has discovered a way to reduce the rejection rate to zero through genetic engineering - not in humans, but in apes. The result is an animal "double" whose organs are immediately available for "harvest". The process is illegal,...
  • Study Of Animal Behavior
    748 words

  • Animals And Machines From Humans
    2,148 words
    Movies and novels such as "Planet of the Apes" and 2001: A Space Odyssey are called Science Fiction because they portray situations that seem extremely unrealistic concurrent with contemporary philosophy. "Planet of the Apes" depicts a world where apes rule while humans are subjected to servitude and confinement. These apes speak intelligibly and are human-like in appearance and behavior. In 2001: A Space Odyssey, the highly advanced computer, HAL 9000, an acronym for "Heuristically programmed A...
  • Nutrient Content Of Organic Crops
    827 words
    Today, more than 60 ARS scientists are conducting organic farming research. Notably, these studies are on organically certified fields. These experts have consistently made themselves available to local growers for help and advice. For example, the researchers in Corvallis, Oregon, are working with organic growers to quell plant diseases. This collaboration is experimenting with compost teas. These teas are made by adding water to organically approved compost and allowing the mix to steep, somew...
  • Fossils Of Delicate Soft Bodied Animals
    1,256 words
    Up until 1947, it was believed that the Cambrian Explosion marked the first true abundance of multicellular life. However, this was discovered to be untrue after Sir Douglas Mawson and R.C. Sprigg mistakenly came across numerous "fossil jellyfish" in the Ediacara Hills while observing what was originally believed to be sandstones belonging to the lowest strata of the Cambrian. At first, these finding were dismissed as "fortuitous inorganic markings". (AAS Biographical Memoirs.) Several years lat...

  • Their Specific Transplanted Organ

  • Three Organisms Live In Extreme Habitats
    738 words
    TECHNOLOGY Two Biology – Procaryotes Procaryotes TECHNOLOGY Two new technologies have enabled scientists to develop a new classification system. These include the electron microscope, which show fine details of the structure of cells and the development of specific biochemical techniques. These recent developments have found that three genera of eubacteria are so different biochemically from other groups that a new kingdom called the Archaebacteria. These Archaebacteria live in extreme cli...
