Re: Vaginal infection

Vaginal yeast infections are caused by the fungus candida albicians, which is one of a community of microorganisms that are always present in the vagina in low concentrations. One of the factors that can bring about a yeast infection is the initiation of the use of certain antibiotics . Why would t...

Denaturation will depends on time and temperature, so it is not as easy as a single cut-off point. Some proteins can also renature safely even if they have been fully denature (RNAses are famously good at that). But for most organisms that are living around us, temperature between 50°C and 60°C will...

If you are that interested, it is time to start researching your subject and write your 15 pages.

Or since you are talking a bout perception, is it really what we think it is. Our brain generate an image of the world that fits our perception so that I am used to that vision. As you say if it was inverted by special glasses, your brain would try to correct its visual perception to match the rest....

Re: Re:

Thanks for your recent posts on the topic. Thinking and Feeling can indeed happen simultaneously......but both cannot be increased simultaneously.......When one is high the other is low.......When one is more the other is less. When thinking is more, emotion is less......When emotion is more, think...

Re: Evolution & World population

A Do that make sense ? Not really... But if your point is that the human population should have been much higher, you might have to plot your table on a graph. You will then see that you should not expect a linear relation between human population and time. Maybe because there have been some change...

Without nucleus, do erythrocytes (I assume you are talking about the human kind) have genes to activate the apoptosis process?

Because there is no way for the environment to directly influence the genetic material. This is a bad thing as it does not allow active adaptation, but also a very good thing as it also permits stability in the genetic material.

Your suggestsions sound right, depending on what your University offer. I would also suggest a healthy dose of molecular biology (to go beyond what is offered in those courses). Stats are amore than useful, so is computer programming (for biology in general) As for other subject, I would say that pu...

From m 1- the dashed line appear to be no more than just a representation of the 3 H bond between G and C not an accurate representation. 2- Cis-platin do intra strand and interstrand crosslinking. Both interfere with replication (I suspect intrastrand crosslinking might even change the correct DNA ...

I imagine that in a case where students are given a number of unknown derived from a limited set that can be grown in the teaching lab, the chart that they are given is not one that is a realistic representation of how any given species would be identified in the wild. It is more like a dichotomous ...
