I listened to taz and spent an hour reading about tardigrades, and now its my favorite animal. Like - look at it!
It’s practically invincible (can survive at extreme temperatures - -271°C and +100°C), very smol (0,5mm), can exist in space vacuum and live through an apocalypse! It produces a protein that protects its DNA from radiation damage.
When in cryptobiosis (a death-like state of dehydration) they look like a blanket.
They’re also sometimes called water bears or moss piglets, which - valid.
Thanks for coming to my tedtalk.
Biology in Augmented Reality
I desperately needed some methylene blue to troubleshoot my northern blot. Couldn’t find any in my lab (honestly that was a surprise). But it just so happened my friend was giving me his microscope and he had bought some methylene blue! Saved my hide (thank You Lord!) This stained blot tells me the problem isn’t so much with RNA degradation, but that large RNA transcripts aren’t transferred well. So my next step is hydrolyzing my RNA in the gel using a sodium hydroxide salt solution before blotting. Lord-willing this works! (Pray for me)
Here’s why you should never take online feminism at face value when biology is brought up.
I lived for years believing the statement “boys don’t mature fast they just aren’t taught how to behave”. For years I thought that was true. Plot twist! It’s not.
In the womb, females develop first and faster. Fetuses actually are all female at first then grow into male. A quick piece of evidence for you to observe is our genitals. The clitorus is a small and underdeveloped penis.
So what does this have to do with out of the womb and live people? Anyone who has spent a lot of time about babies of different genders will tell you that they are different. You have to speak louder to get a boys attention than you do a girl because of the slower hearing development. Boys typically take more time to speak in full sentences than girls do, too. Same goes with reading.
Child development does not stop at sensory skills, either. There’s the emotional aspect. There’s the critical thinking aspect. Young boys do tend to be more rambunctious and emotional because they don’t yet know how to process this shit. Their brains literally just don’t go that fast.
This is NOT an insult to anyone. This is not to say that boys are stupid and girls are smart. This is not to say that there aren’t anomalies and that the sexes don’t catch up eventually. It’s not even to say that society doesn’t play a role in maturity levels because it absolutely does. There are plenty of cases where boys get away with acting like children when girls don’t. Just like there’s cases of girls being less mature than boys.
This is to say that 3rd wave feminism has basically outlawed science and critical thinking. Sociology is the only reputable field to them and that is so fucked up. By ignoring the biological and psychological facts of the matter, you isolate important components that play a part in behavior. It is so incredibly unfair to point at guys and say that the reason they act so young is purely because of the patriarchy. It boarders on ableism.
I consider myself a feminist but that does not mean I trust the community. And honestly, no one should.
This is everything I need to get done before school so I can focus on maths during the day once I get back
yo why the fuck do we have a nervous system?
why i gotta be stressed all the time?
100 days of productivity - 0/100
Since tomorrow, I will everyday post about what productive I did. Currently, I am studying many different subjects - some for school, some for exams, some just because I like them. I want to motivate myself & others, I want to order them all, and I just want to take many aesthetic photos- because why not?
I will be posting them here, on Tumblr, and also on my new-made Instagram - @mariaerimos
Anyone else at *that* point in the semester?
Forensic Biology Professor, entirely too excited: Let’s get started on that quiz! *Jazz Hands*
Me, a tired Bioarchaeology grad student: *Takes drink from my 50/50 G&T*
(While a Nergi likely would have gone after that Magala eventually, I think we just cleared things up before it did. 4/4U are set in the beginnings of an epidemic, which we curb before it reaches critical levels. Same thing goes for previous plot-relevant Elders like Kushala or Amatsu in their debut games. We got to them before Nergi did)
(On a side note to this, my personal headcanon is that outbursts of Frenzy are usually much less damaging or widespread. The Magalas, while still incredibly dangerous like all other Elder Dragons, can live somewhat “normal” lives without causing the destruction of hundreds of ecosystems. That’s why they aren’t as huge of a deal in Generations/Generations Ultimate. I see the Frenzy Pandemic of 4/4U as due to an infant Gore being effected by the Black Blight from Stories, which seemingly takes place before 4/4U due to the Rath Of Meow being created for the first time in that game.)
La genética es una de las ramas de la biología encargada de estudiar las características que se transmiten de generación en generación y estas características se les llaman genes, dichas características pueden ser la estatura, el color de ojos, el tipo de cabello, el tipo de sangre, etcétera y estos genes están formados por pequeños fragmentos de adn y arn, la genética es una de las ramas fundamentales de la biología moderna y tiene varias ramas de estudio como son:
la genética molecular que se encarga de estudiar la composición función y replicación del adn,
la genética clásica (o mendeliana) que se encarga de estudiar cómo es que se heredan estas características, la genética cuantitativa que estudia cómo influyen los genes en las características de los seres vivos que podemos observar a simple vista,
la genética evolutiva y de poblaciones estudia el comportamiento de los genes en las poblaciones y cómo influyen en la evolución de las especies,
la ingeniería genética utiliza la tecnología para la manipulación de genes de una especie a otra para añadir las características que antes no tenían.
La genética tiene sus inicios en el año 1865 cuando el monje Gregor Mendel dio a conocer su trabajo el cual consistió en la experimentación con diferentes variedades de plantas de arvejas los cuales cruzó entre sí para observar cómo se transmitían esas características de generación en generación iniciando así las famosas leyes de Mendel dando así origen a la herencia genética.
