Photosynthesis isn't just a big word that everyone learned about in grade school, it is a truly important process that is necessary for the survival of life on Earth. Without the chemical reactions that take place in plants it would be impossible for our planet...

Photosynthesis is the process by which plants convert carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight into sugar and oxygen. The formula for photosynthesis isCarbon dioxide + water + light energy -> carbohydrate (glucose) + oxygen + waterWater appears on both sides of the equation because it is...

An Experimental Demonstration of PhotosynthesisSeveral experiments were conducted in order to attain a better understanding of the process of photosynthesis. First, the process of plasmolysis was examined to look at the effects of salt concentrations on a cell. Next, a decolorized leaf was examined using...

Photosynthesis is a chemical process carried out by most plants in order to store energy as food. Although plants are famous for this, there are also some fungi, bacteria and prostists which are also capable of this process.First of all, let's start with the...

Humans can make ten of twenty of the amino acids in their own body. Since there is a lack of resources they can't make the other ten. They must get these other amino acids from other animals and plants. Meaning that we must eat the...

The study of Genetics is now becoming more and more important in everyday lives. Gene sequencing can help geneticists determine the probability of a patient carrying a gene-related disease, aid in the development of more drought-resistant crops, and many other things. However, gene sequencing is...

The concept of DNA engineering (also known as DNA manipulation, DNA technology, and DNA recombination) is controversial, and the process of DNA engineering is amazing. DNA engineering is the altering of DNA, with the purpose usually being to mass produce some kind of chemical. Contrary...

One of the workhorse techniques widely utilized in the study of biological macromolecules (DNA, RNA, protein) is gel electrophoresis. Electrophoresis is the process of inducing the migration of charged particles under the influence of an electrical field or current. Gel electrophoresis combines the application of...

Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration are perhaps the two most critical chemical reactions that allow life as we know it. Photosynthesis is the formation of glucose and oxygen from carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight (energy). Cellular Reparation is the exact opposite of photosynthesis; energy is released...

DNA is a molecule that is often represented as though it were beads on a chain. There are four types of beads, usually represented by the letters C,G,T and A. Each of these letters refers to a specific type of molecule called a...
