How Bloodstain Pattern Analysis Works If you're flipping channels one day and come upon a crime scene as depicted on one of the many TV shows that focus on forensic science, such as "CSI" or "Dexter," you might notice something strange. Among the technicians dusting for fingerprints and collecting hair fibers at the murder scene, you spot an array of red strings running from the floor, the wall, the table and the sofa. All of the strings meet at nearly the same point. Suddenly, an investigator begins recounting aspects of the crime: When it happened, where the assault took place in the room, what kind of weapon the perpetrator used and how close to the victim the assailant stood. How could he have learned all that information from a webwork of strings? The strings themselves aren't important.

Nerve Signaling Lists of Nobel Prizes and Laureates Nerve Signaling Play the Nerve Signaling Game Bloodstain Tutorial The success or failure of any criminal investigation often depends on the recognition of physical evidence left at a crime scene and the proper analysis of that evidence. Crime scenes that involve bloodshed often contain a wealth of information in the form of bloodstains. The pattern, size, shape, and the location of such stains may be very useful in the reconstruction of the events that occurred. William G. ECKERT and Stuart H. JAMES DNA . Genetics In the 150 years since Mendel's first experiments, geneticists have discovered that genetic traits usually don't follow simple inheritance patterns. Some traits, like human eye color and stature, are produced by the interplay of many sets of genes; these are known as "polygenic traits." Other traits show a phenomenon called intermediate expression, in which a heterozygous genotype will produce a phenotype that's different from homozygous dominant genotypes. In snapdragons, for example, a homozygous dominant genotype makes red flowers, homozygous recessive makes white flowers, and heterozygous individuals are pink. In addition, some genes have more than two different versions. This type of inheritance is called multiple allelic inheritance.

In fact, violence is often synonymous with "action." Because screenwriters, directors and producers use violence often and in many ways, how do we begin to recognize the distinctions in media violence? How do we determine if shootout or fist fight is one too many? One way is to understand that there is a basic formula to the portrayal of violence in TV, movies and video.

Animated Blood Types Since Rh negative people may produce anti-Rh antibodies, Rh positive blood should not be given to an Rh negative recipient. Based upon the above table, Rh positive recipients can theoretically receive positive or negative blood, and Rh negative donors can theoretically give to Rh positive and Rh negative recipients. Therefore, the "universal donor" is O Negative, while the "universal recipient" is AB Positive. Anti-Rh (immune-type) antibodies can readily pass through the placental capillary membranes. A serious potential problem called maternal-fetal blood incompatibility or Rh Disease could occur with a pregnant Rh negative mother who carries an Rh positive fetus.

The Split Brain Experiments Lists of Nobel Prizes and Laureates The Split Brain Experiments Play the Split Brain Experiments About the game The split brain experiments revealed that the right and left hemisphere in the brain are good at different things. For instance, the right hemisphere is good at space perception tasks and music while the left is good at verbal and analytic tasks.
