Scientists tell us that the Universe is started by the Big Bang millions of years ago. But Christians believes in the Bible which states that the whole world was created by God and our earth exists only for thousands of years. Scientists have actual proof that the earth is 4.5 billion years old (ra...

Tomn, may you allow me a general question? What is the point in discussing Evolution in a scientific forum, if you dont accept scientific explanations? m (Best of) Btw, this discussion reminds me of that one: m WW: Show me the evidence!

As JorgeLobo has already pointed out, conventional bacteriological methods are useless in this case. I`ve been working with filamentous fungi for quite a while now, mostly in liquid cultures. To assess the growth of the fungi, we use indirect measures such as pH and amount of extracellular protein. ...

B. subtilis is the best-known gram pos. bacterium and E. coli is the best known gram neg. bacterium. However, B. subtilis is a harmless soilborne microorganism which has no relation to human health. Many E. coli strains, on the other hand, are dangerous human pathogens. So I would definetely use E. ...

Re: Re:

Put it on an agar plate and let it grow and sequence the genomes of this bacterium's "children" and you see a whole lot of mutations have happened. By continuously sampling your bacteria you can even catch one in a middle of a cell division that is causing a mutation at the very moment. Y...

Well, this discussion in a designated "science forum" is definitely going in a wrong, a non-scientific, direction. Although it may be pointless in view of some previous statements, i feel the urge to comment on some of these postings. There is not one single piece of evidence for Darwinism...

Re: Quantitative test for starch

Hydrolyze the starch enzymatically (eg. by addition od amylase), then quantify glucose. For example:

Re: Famous People with Disabilities

Well, i believe some have it and some don`t... plain and simple as that. I don`t think there is a serious scientific explanation for being a genius or being a famous singer/songwriter. If you take, for example, Stevie Wonder´s talent as a singer, i think that has nothing to to with his blindness. Ma...

I`d say anything above 1000 EUR. But quality drastically increases with price! In our lab we have a microscope with 3,000 EUR and one around 13,000 EUR. The first one has a plug-on USB camera, which is OK (i use it for fungi) but gives you rather fuzzy pics at higher magnifications (above 200x). How...
