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).
Explain the process of protein synthesis
Explain the process of protein synthesis through the use of a fairy tale analogy. Prior to this lesson, students should already have knowledge about DNA structure, RNA structure, and complementary base pairs
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.
The effect of Different Light Wavelengths on Photosynthesis
Light energy is the key to photosynthesis. A relatively narrow portion or the visible light spectrum is most active in photosynthesis. By performing experiments that selectively filter out different wavelengths of light you can learn about which wavelengths are most active in driving photosynthesis.
Does classical music help plants grow?
My hypothesis is that classical music will help the plants to grow. I also believe that the plants that listen to country will have their growth stunted.
How much do students know about pollution?
We would like to do a survey research project to find out what students know and feel about air pollution. Our hypothesis states that the majority of the responses to the factual questions about air pollution on the questionnaire will be answered correctly.
How much does a typical student know about endangered species?
We would like to do a survey research project on student knowledge about endangered and extinct animals. Our hypothesis states that the majority of the responses to the factual questions on the questionnaire will be correct.
