An 8 page discussion of the importance of phylogenetic inference to our understanding of evolution. Suggests that it is through phylogenetic inference that we are able to see the hierarchical pattern of commonality which is exhibited by all forms of life. This hierarchy is not only visible through gross external anatomical features but ...

This 9 page paper provides an overview of cloning in general and then goes into political, moral and social implications of human cloning. Both sides are explored, but the paper supports the concept of human cloning. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

A 15 page address of fifteen specific questions from biology. The author addresses questions ranging from the association between carbon dioxide and photosynthesis to genetics to seed dispersal. Three sources are listed.

A 3 page definition of eugenics. Traces its development from ancient times to the present. The author warns that with the introduction of new knowledge and technology, both the positives and negatives of selective breeding can be phenomenal. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

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.

A 5 page contention that phylogenetic relationships are a critical component of evolutionary biology. Indeed, it is upon our knowledge of phylogeny which we base much of our theory of evolution. Even in “Origin of Species”, that infamous production of an earlier century which many consider synonymous with the concept of evolution, Darwin ...

A 10 page discussion of facial expression. Utilizes the research in the field to explore the question of whether or not certain facial expressions are universal in their meaning, e.g. that they have the same meaning regardless of the cultural context. Contrasts the view that facial expression are solely cultural manifestations and thus ...

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 ...

A 10 page consideration of the theory of evolution and our current knowledge regarding the origin of life. Outlines Darwin's theories and the natural history information which led to those theories and provides a brief outline of the chemical basis for the origin of life. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

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.

5 pages in length. People may be living longer these days; however, that has not stopped the scientific community from pursuing other avenues of extended life.

This 4 page report discusses the issue of regulating biotechnology and the social issues associated with concerns that are highlighted in the 2001 movie "Artificial Intelligence: A.I." Bibliography lists 4 sources.

This 32 page paper considers the Human Genome Project, paying particular attention to the role that computer technology has played through its existence. The paper looks at the background and then discusses aspects of sequencing in more detail. The paper considers the progress made along with that yet to be made, and cites examples of ...

A 5 page discussion of the many considerations encompassed by biotechnology. Genome studies, in particular, present a number of concerns, both philosophical concerns and ethical concerns. These same studies, however, present phenomenal possibilities for our future, possibilities which have the potential to be far more positive than negative in their overall manifestations. ...

A 7 page paper which argues that gene technology in the production of food will cause more problems than it will solve. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

This 3 page paper is written in two parts, answering several questions; which of the three commonly accepted explanations is most likely to explain the Lazarus effect, what value or information the Lazarus effect provides when studying the fossil record and what is meant by refugia. The second part of the paper looks at ...

5 pages in length. Goes over the argument as to why the government needs to regulate human genome research. This excellent paper gives a great overview of the entire research and earning potential of the research on human genetic mapping and why the industry has lost its focus and needs to be regulated. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

In a paper of two pages, the author writes about how the environmental factors as well as genetics can influence one's health. The author of this paper gives examples of particular diseases that are effected by the environment and genes. There are four sources cited in this paper.

A 4 page contention that the result of Gregor Mendel's research has not only changed the way people perceive the world, but also the way people live in it. Carefully quantifying his bservations, Mendel was able to come to produce a set of laws that allow us to predict the genetic outcome of specific ...
