Biology Unit 5 Study Guide: Evolution. After his visit to the Galapagos Islands, Darwin came up with the theory of evolution. This theory stated that organisms change over time. The way that organisms change is through the process of natural selection. With examples, practice questions, and answers to help make evolution respiration easy to learn!
Biology Unit 4 Study Guide: Genetics, Meiosis, DNA and Protein Synthesis. With examples and answers to help make meiosis, DNA replication, and RNA translation easy to learn!
Retroviruses are a class of viruses that not only infect host cells but also integrate their genetic material into the host genome, establishing a permanent infection that cannot be cured. The most common retrovirus is the human immunodeficiency virus or HIV, which targets and destroys helper T-cells.
Help, I smell like fish! Is this even possible?
Body odor is a fact of life. For many, this is a simple fix either through some deodorant or a quick shower, but for some unlucky few, a fishy odor always remain. This is none other than Fish Odor Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder also known as Trimethylaminuria (TMAU). Learn more about the biology behind Fish Odor Syndrome, the FMO3 gene, cures and treatments.
How did flightless birds evolve? How did the evolution of the shrinking cod come to be? In this lesson, we learn about the evolution of the flightless birds, such as cormorants, and the evolution of the shrinking cod in our biology selection case studies.
An Introduction to Evolution and Natural Selection: the history behind it with famous evolutionists Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace
How does DNA transcription work in bacteria and prokaryotes? In this lesson, we explain how bacterial transcription works and its 3 basic steps: initiation, elongation, and termination.
