Genetically-Modified Products: Harmful or Helpful?

Copyright (c) 2013 Morgan DSince their introduction, genetically-modified products have always been given significant media attention. This attention mainly focuses on its safety profile. This has led to public debates between opponents and proponents of utilization of genetically-modified products. These debates have mainly revolved around whether genetically-modified products are harmful or helpful to humans, other life forms in the planet, and the ecology . The thesis statement for this article is that genetically-modified products are helpful. With the evolution of human needs in the contemporary world, genetically-modified products are exceptionally helpful, as they have the potential to meet these needs as they evolve. Since the advent of the industrial revolution, human population has increased exponentially. This was facilitated by the increased food production that was a result of the earlier agrarian revolution. In 1950, the global human population was about 2.5 billion. In 2000, it hit 6 billion. ...


Scientific Terminology

Below are some quick introductions into two scientific terms, highly simplified to help you understand them to a better degree.Absolute ConfigurationThis is a way of denoting the absolute structure of an optical isomer. Two conventions are in use. The D-L convention relates the structure of the molecule to some reference molecule in the case of sugars and similar compounds, the dextrorotatory form of glyceraldehydes (HOCH2CH(OH)CHO). 2.3 dihdroxyproppanal) was used. The rule is as follows. Write the structure of this molecule down with asymmetric carbon in the centre, the CHO group at the top the OH on the right, the CH2OH at the bottom and the H on the left.Now Imagine that the central carbon atom is at the centre of a tetrahedron with the four groups at the corners and that the H and the OH come out of the paper and the CHO and CH2OH groups go into the paper. The resulting three-dimensional structure was taken to be that of d-glyceraldehyde and was called D-glyceraldehyde. Any compound that contains an asym...


What Is Nanotechnology

Copyright (c) 2013 Morgan DNanotechnology is fundamentally the science of inventing things through manipulating the systems at the molecular and atomic level. This technology involves simple functions to be done in complex ways due to the extreme small scale level. Moreover this technology can be referred to as forecasting abilities of manufacturing products through bottom up approach by using variety of tools which ensure high performance of the products. In order to perceive the extent of depth of this technology, various examples can be looked into before understanding the details. For example, the length of carbon-carbon bond is approximately 0.12-0.15 nanometer, while a DNA has approximately diameter of 2 nanometer.During the same years, another scientist K. Eric Drexler formulated and presented the ideas of nanotechnology and became the founder of the field of nanotechnology at molecular level. He is known to be the first scientist to manipulate the matter at such small scale through his experiments. He...
