This needs new and improved diagnostic tools and methods to assist in the detection, prevention, and treatment of tuberculosis with improved speed, sensitivity, specificity...

...Resistance Training Intensity Vs. Volume Resistance Training is considered as being one of the best forms of exercise out there today and this is forseveral different reasons in particular. There are many benefits and advantages that can be gained from being involved with an activity such as resistance training, and in order to understand about these benefits and advantages, and in order to understand topics in relation to this, such as the matter of whether or not multiple set training is better than single set training for maintaining strength, then you must first understand about resistance training as an exercise as a...

...affect E.Coli growth? Aim of investigation: To investigate whether organic pollution affects e coli and also examine the effect of an organic pollutant on engineered and non- engineered e coli. Hypothesis: Under environmental stress conditions E coli from the water sample is able to resist the organic pollution as compared to the engineered E coli (DH5 alpha). There are three components of the procedure: 1. Detect E.coli from lake water sample I have taken samples from three local lakes near my immediate surroundings to carry out my project Materials: 1. Macconkey agar 2. Bacterial loop 3. Water samples from different... ? Extended Essay Research Question: Does organic pollution affect E.Coli growth?...

...affects the nervous system of sheep and goats. The disease appears to be caused by a polymorphism in the normal prion protein gene (PrP) that results in the formation of a mammalian prion precursor. More specifically there are three polymorphisms in sheep that are acutely linked to the occurrence of Scrapie: A136V, R154H and Q171R. Among these 3 codons there are 5 alleles generated that causes resistance and 3 alleles generated... that causes susceptibility to the disease. Therefore, genotype of the breeds may dictate susceptibility or resistance to scrapie. Scrapie can be highly infectious and transmissible among similar species. But being a genetic disease, only individuals...
