Music and temporary disposition
This science fair project was conducted to find out if music can alter the moods and temporary dispositions of schoolgoers. Testing was done by asking participants to take part in a survey whilst cheerful, somber or heavy-metal music was played in the ba
Ambidexterity and left-handedness
This science fair project was done to compare the incidence/rate of ambidexterity among left handed persons.
Examine the interactions of class A and C ß-lactamases as they interact with ß-lactam antibiotics.
ß-lactamases are the principal agents of bacterial resistance to many penicillins, cephalosporins, and other ß-lactam antibiotics. The main objective is to understand the interactions of class A and C ß-lactamases as they interact with ß-lactam antibiotics in order to model a non-ß-lactam inhibitor into the active site. This would stop the hydrolytic power of ß-lactamases and rejuvenate ß-lactam a
Determine if translation and transcription of RNA in cells affects the levels of Ribonuclease H (RNase H)
Ribonuclease H is an enzyme that may be useful as a treatment for breast cancer because it can stop the production of estrogen in tumor cells. To find more about this enzyme, the purpose of this experiment was to determine if translation and transcription of RNA in cells affects the levels of Ribonuclease H (RNase H).
Generational effects of acid rain on Drosophila melanogaster
The purpose of this experiment was to test the effects of acid rain on several generations of living organisms. This researcher was interested in exploring whether mutations, found in an acid environment would also be observed if the offspring were removed from the acid environment into a neutral environment. Drosophila melanogaster were selected as subjects, due to their short life span, ease of
Which Parent Affects Fingerprint Pattern Types More?
The purpose of my project is to find out if the male parent or the female parent affects the offspring's fingerprints more.
Does Mass Affect the Emergence of a Soybean Seed?
The purpose of this project is to determine if mass affects the emergence of a soybean seed. This experiment was set up to verify if the size of a soybean affects how it grows.
How widespread is the occurrence of spliceosomal introns in the nuclear-encoded rDNA of lichen-forming and free-living members of the Ascomycota
Spliceosomal (pre-mRNA) introns have previously been found in eukaryotic protein-coding genes, in the small nuclear RNAs of some fungi, and in the small- and large-subunit ribosomal DNA genes of a limited number of ascomycetes. How the majority of these introns originate remains an open question because few proven cases of recent and pervasive intron origin have been documented.
Do plants grow at different rates when given different plant foods?
I wanted to know the growth difference in plants when different plant foods were being fed to them. I believed that if I used Miracle-Gro the plants would grow taller than the others, I believed this because Miracle-Gro seems to be the most popular nationally known plant food in the United States of America. I hoped that this investigation would tell me what plant food makes plants grow the fast
