Introduction: If you missed the microscope lab we did in class, you will need to make it up by using a "virtual microscope" which can be accessed on the internet. The virtual microscope is a little more complicated than the microscope we used in the lab, but it will not be difficult to use. Access the Virtual Microscope at http://www.udel.edu/biology/ketcham/microscope/ Click on the link that says the "virtual scope" 1. Familiarize yourself with the microscope, run the tutorial and examine the parts you will be working with.

Link nucleotides to repair DNA! Pair the correct nucleotides (gray) with the proper bases on the moving DNA strands. To move to the next level, connect as many of the proper pairs as possible. You will cause mutations if you make incorrect pairs or allow unpaired bases to escape off the right side of your screen! If your mutation rate is too high, you cannot move to the next level.
From New World Encyclopedia Cnidaria (pronounced with a silent c) is a phylum containing some 11,000 species of relatively simple invertebrate animals found exclusively in aquatic, mostly marine, environments. Cniderians include corals , sea anemones , jellyfish , sea pens, sea pansies, and sea wasps, and tiny freshwater hydra.
In this lesson, students learn how genes, including those that cause disease, are passed from one generation to the next. Students explore the process of meiosis, which divides the genetic material of an individual in half to produce the sperm or egg cells that combine with those of another individual during sexual reproduction. Next, students explore how genetic diseases are passed from one generation to the next. A coin-toss exercise demonstrates the odds of parents passing mutated genes to their offspring, and two videos illustrate the potential positive, negative, and neutral effects of genetic mutations. 1.
Jan. 16, 2012 — A recent study at Oregon State University found that the chlorophyll in green vegetables offers protection against cancer when tested against the modest carcinogen exposure levels most likely to be found in the environment. However, chlorophyll actually increases the number of tumors at very high carcinogen exposure levels. Beyond confirming the value of chlorophyll, the research raises serious questions about whether traditional lab studies done with mice and high levels of toxic exposure are providing accurate answers to what is a real health risk, what isn't, and what dietary or pharmaceutical approaches are useful. The findings, published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, were done using 12,360 rainbow trout as laboratory models, instead of more common laboratory mice. Rodent studies are much more expensive, forcing the use of fewer specimens and higher carcinogen exposures.
