Should just focus on eating to give your body nourishment. With that as your focus to eating for the day, a nice side effect is gradually loosing unnecessary storage. The new theory of toxins being surrounded in fat/adipose tissue because your body can not metabolize these new toxins and just safely...

I am going to go along with the theory that free radicals are what causes mutations, and thus aging (breaking down of the organic machine). And free radicals are caused by all the metabolic reactions that go on in a cell (mitochondria mostly in my opinion). So if you slow down the metabolilc reactio...

I would just like to add, that the whole process of mitosis is a complicated process, and that mistakes can be made. Would cells that proliferate fast, make more mistakes (thus leading to cancer) than ones that proliferate slowly? (Or do they just get the cancer faster?) Can a function of a cell con...

1. the term 'identical' is very important when dividing the DNA into two daughter cells. 2.this could be a trick question. the RNA polymerase can only read in the 3' to 5' direction of DNA, which could be the east to west direction on the one strand, while west to east on the other strand, since DNA...

It is strange that you picked a school, got into the PhD program, and not have a mentor or the area of your interest available. I am planning to go into a PhD program, and have been looking for a PI that thinks like I do and is doing the work that I want to do, and then apply at the school that they...

Check out Systems Biology.

Going macro, sometimes help to observe what may be generalized in the micro, but you have to look mainly at function, and not the side effects, to see the truth.
