With steadfast opinions on both sides of the issue, the idea of creating scientifically produced people has some of the population up in arms with such sacrilege, while others deem this marvel of modern ...

A 4 page paper on the the application of social Darwinism and later studies to the new cloning process. Points of discussion include fitness of the species, ability to reproduce, and the replication of disease. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

A 10 page paper that argues in support of science's use of genetic drift over natural selection to make quicker shifts in genetically drifted and naturally selected traits. The paper works from the viewpoint that genetic drift often leads to dominant gene traits and, therefore, extinction, whereas natural selection leads to environmental control by ...

Genetic Mapping

  • 5 page paper

A 5 page overview of the history of genetic mapping, its history and applications. Includes an explanation of the Human Genome Project. Bibliography lists four sources.

Genetics / Violence

  • 7 page paper

A 7 page argumentative paper proving that violence is hereditary and unless stopped could lead to the demise of the human race.

A 9 page paper outlining the methodology and tools used by paleontologist to gain an understanding of dinosaur behavior. Emphasizes computer modeling techniques. Bibliography lists five sources.

A 7 page paper that discusses these changes in light of the disappearance of the dinosaur. The writer suggests that although this is still a mystery (unknowable fact), the geographic changes (tectonic plate theory, sea-floor theory) and climate changes from warm, moist climate to boreal at the end of the era are believed to ...

Dinosaur Extinction

  • 6 page paper

A 6 page review of dinosaur extinction. Ties together the concepts of natural selection, fitness, neocatastrophism, and the Gaia hypothesis to contend that dinosaurs dies out gradually as the result of one or more environmental events such as sea level regression, climatic change, volcanism, and/or asteroid impact. Bibliography lists 6 sources, 3 of ...

A 5 page review of the concepts identified in Richard Dawkins' book The Selfish Gene. Emphasizes the role of the human body as a machine designed exclusively for the perpetuation of the genes. No sources are listed.

More focused upon scientific issue than upon the classic sci-fi novel, this 4 page research paper refutes Mary Shelley's premise that scientists will some day create life through brain transplants and other methodologies touched upon in her story. Parallels are made between genetics and the 'Power of God' as well as issues concerning the ...

This five-page-paper reviews and discusses an article in which experiments with mice showed that manipulation of a brain receptor can increase the ability to learn and remember things. This points to exciting possibilities in the field of dementia. Bibliography lists one source.

This 7 page paper provides an overview of the issues related to genetically modified plants in regards to environmental and food safety. This paper assesses the threat of modified plants to the environments, possible concerns regarding the impact of modified plants to other species and existing natural ecosystems, and the safety of modified plants for the consumer. ...

This 7 page paper provides an overview of the basic research conducted by Jane Goodall, who studied chimpanzee populations and recognized that chimpanzee socialization followed a definitive course of development much like human dynamics hierarchies. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

A 5 page paper that explains the process of nuclear transfer, or non-transgenic cloning, and how this process is currently being used on animal subjects. Also discussed are the controversy that surrounds this issue and the questions this procedure presents in the areas of humanity, ethics, and necessity. Arguments presented by both advocates ...

An 11 page comparison of the simplicity of the animal species preserved in the Burgess Shale Deposit and the complex evolutionary path recorded in the fossil record for modern-day birds. Discusses the controversy and debate surrounding the question of the speculated origin of birds from dinosaurs. Discusses the current findings in the field and ...

A 5 page paper that explores the similarities and relations between the human processes of memory and those of the animal species, primarily the Chimpanzee. Arguments defending both the similarities and the differences in the behavioral habits of the Chimpanzee as compared to those of the human species are presented, as well as recent ...

A 5 page paper which discusses the evolution of the human brain. Not a great deal has been clearly established in terms of the evolution of the human brain. There are many theories and many different approaches, some of which are addressed herein. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

A 5 page discussion of the societal retributions of human cloning. Illuminates the potentially positive impacts of cloning but weighs them against the more negative aspects such as the ethics of "making" children, the potential of the procedure only being within reach of the wealthy, and the problem of unauthorized use of the genetic ...

A 9 page discussion of the benefits of bioengineering, the genetic alteration of food species.
