Study Says Nutrition And Heredity Are Genetically Linked
About News News From All Over The World, Right To You ... View News's Profile A challenging goal in biology is to understand how the principal cellular functions are integrated so that cells achieve viability and optimal fitness under a wide range of nutritional conditions. Scientists from the French research centers INRA and CNRS showed by genetic approaches that, in the model bacterium Bacillus subtilis, central carbon metabolism (which generates energy from nutrients) and replication (which synthesizes DNA), two key functions in the fields of nutrition and heredity, are tightly linked.

Anti Aging Skin Care Treatment – Future Techniques | Healty Living ...
DNA is often referred to as the molecule of heredity, as it is responsible for the genetic propagation of most inherited traits. During reproduction, DNA is replicated and transmitted to the offspring. Encouraging the skin to repair its DNA is the future of anti-aging skin care according to dermatologists. Cosmeceuticals of the future will target each individual’s unique DNA and deliver the needed treatment without irritation that other products could produce on the skin. At time, DNA anti aging technique have been clinically tested to help fight: - Wrinkles - Sagging skin - Dry skin - [more...]

Heredity | Science Project Ideas for Kids
Facts: gene A sequence of DNA that occupies a specific location on a chromosome and determines a particular characteristic in an organism. For example: The gene for eye color. allele One member of a pair of genes that occupy a specific position on a specific chromosome. dominant allele Represented by a capital letter. The gene that when present produces the characteristic it represents. probability The chance of an offspring inheriting a certain characteristic. Punnet square A grid used to predict the probable outcome of a genetic cross. recessive allele Represented by a lower case letter. It [more...]

Off Resonance » Blogging on classic science: DNA as the molecule ...
gg at Skulls in the Stars has issued an interesting challenge to science bloggers: write a blog post about a classic scientific research paper, preferably something pre-WWII. This is a great idea, and I hope plenty of bloggers take up the challenge. Reading old papers is great, and I wish that science instructors would utilize them more in their classes. Not only does it foster an appreciation of the history of science, but it also brings the material to life and makes learning more enjoyable. Granted, not all old papers are a joy to read, and some are painfully written, but I think [more...]

We live in a strange country « SplitFocus
Fewer than a third can identify DNA as a key to heredity. One adult American in five thinks the Sun revolves around the Earth, an idea science had abandoned by the 17th century. I find this very depressing. But also very strange, given that 4 in 5 American adults believe science education is “absolutely essential” or “very important” for US healthcare, global reputation, and economy. How can these both be true? My hero, Carl Sagan, explained it eloquently here. He got off a plane once and took a cab with someone who was very excited to find out he was riding with “that science [more...]

The Need to Know: DNA Testing on Exhumed Bodies and Genetic ...
In addition to the circus of exhumation, DNA testing has been used increasingly in the much more sobering realms of solving criminal cases and identifying the remains of unknown soldiers. And through programs like National Geographicâs The Genographic Project, each of us, for about $100, can receive a participation kit and contribute to scientific efforts to more thoroughly understand the history of humankind. The cheek swabs we send through the mail to Genographic are offered in the name of scientific discovery. Very different are state laws that require criminals to submit genetic [more...]
