Characterization of an enzyme

Enzyme is a protein molecule that acts as the biological catalyst of chemical reaction where the substrates are converted into products. With the aids of enzyme, the rate of reaction will be increased since the enzyme provides an alternative pathway for reaction by lowering the activation energy needed (Taylor et al., 1997). An enzyme is […]

Construction of a food web based on the species located in the Clyde Sea

Introduction We will be sampling the waters of the Clyde Sea to attempt to create a food web of the plankton recorded. We will examine the relationship between key species and inorganic and organic mater found in the waters. The diversity of plankton in the Clyde Sea is immense. We will only select a few […]

How plants have adapted or become acclimated to shade.

Plants which grow in shady conditions have altered structurally and biochemically in order to cope with the low levels of light and harvest it efficiently. Low level light is rich in far-red light and plants have also adapted to make use of this. Shade plants have also had to make adjustments to cope with sudden […]

Modalities For The Diagnosis Of Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis

Spontaneous bacterial peritoneal inflammation is a life endangering complication in patients with cirrhosis. It has been defined as an ascitic fluid infection without an apparent intraabdominal surgically treatable beginning. [ 1 ] The prevalence of SBP in hospitalized patients with liver cirrhosis and ascites is high, runing between 10 % and 30 % . Notably, […]

Hypothesis-based Science

A hypothesis is a proposed explanation or answer to a problem or question. One stipulation for a good hypothesis is that it must be testable. Science demands for actual data and facts to be used when testing a hypothesis. If no hard data or facts can be provided, the hypothesis exists outside of science and […]

Investigating respiration of maggots

Aim: The aim of my investigation is to see how the rate of respiration of some maggots differs between room temperature and other temperatures, in terms of volume of oxygen produced. Simple Prediction I predict that as I raise the temperature of the maggots, the rate of respiration will increase. I think this because respiration […]

The Wrongness of Searle’s Biological Naturalism: Jaegwon Kim

Jaegwon Kim criticizes John Searle’s biological naturalism for the problem of causal overdetermination. Kim suggests the identity-theory to clean up the mess, but Searle responds with an incoherent recapitulation of his biological naturalism using two senses of causation as a linguistic trick to avoid the warranted charge of overdetermination. Furthermore, Searle’s response reveals that he […]
