Camera Reviews : Whaling In Japan

In 2009, published DNA analysis of whale meat from Japanese markets suggested as many as 150 large whales, from vulnerable coastal stocks were taken annually as bycatch. Japan legally allows the commercial sale of whales caught, incidentally, entangled in fishing nets designed to catch coastal fish. Market surveys also detected migratory whales such as Humpbacks, Fin whales, Bryde’s whales and Gray whales some of which are endangered species. The impact on J-stock whales, which have protected status under the IWC, seemingly increased with changes in Japanese regulations that legalized the [more...]

The database was developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at NIH. The human genome is made up of approximately 3 billion base pairs of DNA arranged into 46 chromosomes. In recent years, scientists have discovered that very large stretches of the genome — on the order of millions of base pairs of DNA — can be different in seemingly normal individuals. It had long been known that such large-scale genomic changes existed, but it was thought that they were rare and when present led to known disorders such as [more...]

Shotgun sequence techniques are also used for sequence analysis of numerous fragments of DNA. Special software is used to see the overlapping of fragments and their assembly. Prediction of Protein Structure:- It is easy to determine the primary structure of proteins in the form of amino acids which are present on the DNA molecule but it is difficult to determine the secondary, tertiary or quaternary structures of proteins. For this purpose either the method of crystallography is used or tools of bioinformatics can also be used to determine the complex protein structures. Genome [more...]

Current thinking, inspired by the results five years ago from the Human Genome Project, is that the 6 billion humans alive today are 99.9% similar when it comes to genetic content and identity.
