About Biology: Human Anatomy, Genetics, and Quizzes
Researchers have used fluorescence microscopy to visually demonstrate gene activity in cancer cells during the cell cycle. Cancer cells divide uncontrollably and may develop as a result of several factors, including recombination errors that occur during the cell cycle and infections from certain cancer viruses. According to head researcher Angus Lamond, "What we have been able to produce is a detailed analysis of protein activity in human cancer cells that exceeds what was previously possible. Previously it has been possible to capture a time-averaged snapshot of this activity, but what we can now do is give a much fuller picture." The researchers state that this new high-resolution mapping of gene expression will provide valuable insight into protein production in cancer cells. Information gained from the detailed study of cancer cell protein activity could lead to the development of better cancer drugs.

Secondary Biology teaching resources – TES From tiny microbes to life itself, our collection of free biology teaching resources covers all aspects of the subject, no matter how big or how small. Why not have a browse of our latest collections in TES Science and Socrative science GCSE revision quizzes? Alternatively, you can search for lesson plans, activities and worksheets, as well as material for biology revision. @tesscience Careers in STEM Human body The study of the human body involves anatomy, physiology, histology and embryology. The body varies anatomically in known ways. Physiology focuses on the systems and organs of the human body and their functions. Many systems and mechanisms interact in order to maintain homeostasis, with safe levels of substances such as sugar and oxygen in the blood. The body is studied by health professionals, physiologists, anatomists, and by artists to assist them in their work. Composition[edit]

Why do blood types matter? - Natalie S. Hodge As with most topics in human genetics, blood type is more complicated than it appears on the surface. There are other human blood groups that are less common than the ABO blood group. For example, the Bombay Phenotype is a recessive condition in which the precursor of the A or B antigen, the H antigen, is not made. It occurs in about 1 in 10,000 people in India and 1 in million people in Europe. The Human Body This astonishing series takes us on a journey breathtaking twists of the most complex biological mechanism on earth - the human body. Using a technique that allows us to see photos changes over time, graphics, drawing and illustration calculated computerized techniques in order to investigate any effect, due to a corner of the human body in his various stages of growth, maturity and the final state - decay. Matriculation, girls, pains of adolescence, complex activity of the brain and eventually death shown in steps with detailed explanation. Offering clear voice of Dr. Robert Winston allows 10-year-old child even gain knowledge and understand the human body than ever before. Life Story – Every second, a world of miraculous microscopic events take place within the body.

Session 173: Science Subject Special Date: Thursday 17th October 2013. Hosted by @UKEdChat & the Science Teaching Community. Supported by the forum – Click here. Rather than summarise the session in our usual format, for these subject specials we are creating infographs of the session. Science experiment on soil erosion – Lapappadolce Science experiment on soil erosion – This experiment, which has a tremendous visual impact due to its simplicity, it will demonstrate the relationship between precipitation, soil erosion, protection of watercourses and vegetation. A very simple experiment that stresses the importance of the vegetation cover of the soil. You can propose in three versions: – Preparing the planting of seedlings – Using plants ready to be transplanted – Using soil samples. Science experiment on soil erosion – First version

touch experiments Touch Experiments Some of these experiments require a blindfold. Keep in mind that some people do not like to be blindfolded...you could ask them to keep their eyes closed, but don't count on them having their eyes closed for a very long time. The skin is the largest sensory organ of the body. The skin is sensitive to many different kinds of "stimuli", such as touch, pressure, and temperature.

Host a Family STEM Night Family game nights are popular. But, have you ever thought about changing your family game night to a Family STEM Night? There are plenty of activities that require participants to think like an engineer or a scientist to identify and solve problems. Families can work together to use the engineering design process just as STEMists do with their Groovy Lab in a Box. There is no better way to learn than to learn while having fun!
