Yeast Culture Lab
I. Introduction
1. Yeasts are eukaryotic, unicellular fungi that inhabit liquid or moist habitats. They are heterotrophs and rely on complex organic substances for nutrition. Yeasts require oxygen for aerobic cellular respiration but some are also anaerobic with alternative aerobic methods for producing energy. They do not require light to grow and their temperature range varies which means they can survive in a multitude of different environments. Very common, they can be found anywhere, from occurring on the skins of fruits to residing in the intestinal tracts of animals as parasites. The most common method of reproduction for yeasts is asexual reproduction through budding. In this process, the parent cell’s nucleus splits and forms a daughter nucleus. The daughter cell grows on the parent cell until it is large enough to separate. Through cytokinesis, this ‘bud’ then forms a new cell. Less common is the method of sexual reproduction in which spores are formed. In this lab, I will be culturing four yeast samples under different conditions. The goal is to study the effects of limited reproduction, additional resources (nutrition) and predation on the yeast population. Yeasts play a very important role not only by serving as nutrient recyclers in nature, but by also being important for the food industry because they can convert carbohydrates to carbon dioxide and alcohols through fermentation. They are also used in cell biology research and produce ethanol.
2. When ammonia, which limits reproduction, and a microbe (predation) are added to the culture, the yeast population will decrease. And when additional food is introduced into the environment, the yeast population will increase considerably, but then stabilize because of the carrying capacity of the environment. In all four groups, the yeast population will decline in the end because food…...

...POINT LISAS CAMPUS Esperanza Road, Brechin Castle, Couva www.utt.edu.tt LAB 1 Decomposition reaction Aim: Determination of the number of moles of water molecules of crystallization present in hydrated Magnesium Sulphate (MgSO4.xH2O) Apparatus: Mass balance, test tube, test tube holder, heat-proof mat and bunsen burner. Reagents: Hydrated sodium carbonate. Theory: Chemical decomposition, analysis or breakdown is the separation of a chemical compound into elements or simple compounds. A more specific type of decomposition is thermal decomposition or thermolysis, which is caused by heat. ABA+B, the reaction is endothermic, since heat is required to break the chemical bonds. Most decomposition reaction require energy either in the form of heat, light or electricity. Absorption of energy causes the breaking of the bonds present in the reacting substance which decomposes to give the product. When a hydrated salt is heated it decomposes into a pure form of the salt and water. MgSO4.xH2O MgSO4 + H2O Procedure: Refer to Handout Results: A. Mass of test tube/g = 21.77 B. Mass of the tube and salt/g = 24.0 A table showing the mass of the test tube and salt after 3 consecutive heating: Heating | Mass of the test tube and salt/g | 1st | 23.96 | 2nd | 23.81 | 3rd | 23.81 | Calculations: G.

...Design Lab: Respiration The Effect of Heavy-Duty Exercise on the respiration of Homo Sapiens (Humans) Research Question: What is the effect of heavy-duty exercise (cardiovascular and other activities) on the respiration of humans? Background Information: In this experiment, trials will be conducted consisting of humans run up a set of stairs up and down 3 times as fast as they possibly can in order to put pressure on oxygen need to increase respiration needs. This will test the effect of a set exercise on the respiratory needs of a human. After this, they will have to do a set of 10 push-ups and 15 jumping jacks. If 10 push-ups are not possible, a substitute of 15 curl-ups should be administered instead. Hypothesis: When exercise is complete, the respiratory needs of one human should be significantly higher than it was previous to the exercise. Independent Variable: Human fitness level, exercise set Dependent Variable: How fast the human goes Controlled Variable: Temperature, time for exercise, amount of oxygen in air Materials: * Piece of paper for general observations as well as data recording * 4-6 humans * Timer (ipod, clock, something) * Water (if needed for human) Procedure: 1.

Lab Paper

...Kayleigh Lanning Biology 101 Dr. Lazar June 10, 2013 In this lab the objective was to measure the absorbance of different wavelengths of light through pigments. First we separated the major pigments found in leaves of green plants then we transmitted different wavelengths of light through each major pigment. Activity one dealt with solubility of several pigments. The information given to conduct this experiment was that a chlorophyll a pigment will turn a blue/green color, a chlorophyll b will be a yellow green, carotene will be a deep yellow and xanthophyll will be a pail yellow. We were also given the fact that the most soluble pigment would be at the top of the chromatography paper. While separating the pigments, my group hypothesized that if we tested the pigments for solubility, then carotene would be the most soluble. The independent variable would be the comparison of the different pigments, and the dependent variable would be the solubility. In this experiment we used chromatography paper, spinach leaves extract, a lead pencil, a metric ruler, a paintbrush, one large beaker, 5-7 mL of solvent consisting of 10% acetone in petroleum ether and a paper clip. It was also important that we had access to a fume hood. The first thing we did was gather the materials. Then we got the ruler and using the lead pencil drew a line about 15 mm from the bottom of the chromatography paper (the long side of the page). After we did that we got the spinach leaves extract and......

...* * 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Number 1 is pointing to the PS/2 inputs that would connect a keyboard or mouse to a desktop computer. These inputs are for the most part being “upgraded” to USB ports. USB inputs for these devices allow users the option of using wireless mice and/or keyboards. For obvious reasons this adds a great deal of convenience and takes away some of the clutter that wired keyboards and mice make. It also allows for users to use different types of mice, like the one I use. Not only is it wireless, it has a trackball as opposed to the typical mouse that you have to move around. I control the pointer with my thumb, and can use the mouse on any surface, including my lap. Number 2 is pointing to the Parallel port. Historically the parallel port was used for zip drives, scanners, external modems, sound cards, webcams, gamepads joysticks, external hard drives, and CD-ROM drives. As with many of the other ports, the parallel port is being replaced with the USB port for many of it’s past functions. However, if you still have a parallel printer, they do make a USB-to-parallel adapter. Number 3 is pointing to the serial port. There are quite a few devices that can be plugged in to this input, such as dial up modems, bar code scanners, printers, older digital cameras, networking, serial mouse, and what I would say is the most common use for this input, an LCD or other display units.

Mineral Lab Paper

...Mineral Lab Paper Week One Mineral Lab Geology SCI/245 Axia College Mineral lab Paper The four requirements for minerals are that they must be naturally occurring in other words they must appear in nature something that that was formed by the earth and not man made. It must be inorganic which means I must not be formed from an organic substance like a fossil of any other living creature. It must have a specific crystalline structure that is formed from simple salts and complex silicates. And it must have a definite chemical composition which defines the minerals structure. The way that you differentiate between minerals is by the way they react to specific tests like for instance the acid test some minerals will have a bubbling action and other one will have no reaction and by color minerals come in many different shades an colors. The six methods to tell minerals apart are the color test by looking at the mineral it can be classified by its color. Another method is the streak test which is the color of the mineral in its powered form this is the true color of a mineral specimen as it lessens the impurity impact and eliminates the light distortion from the crystal. The luster test refers to the absorption, refection, or refraction of light by the surface of a mineral. The fluorescence test in ultraviolet light, some mineral specimens appear to Florence due to the fluorescent mineral impurities or due to locality. Chemical composition is another method because......

...Morgan Johnson (19407679) NS 1110  Friday Research Paper Lab 10 Morgan Johnson (19407679) NS 1110  Friday Research Paper Lab 10 The topic I chose for my research project is setting up a business on the Darknet. I think it would be more accurate to say that the topic chose me. I was originally browsing the internet on the various subjects presented to us in the assignment handout and had started reading a little about ecommerce when this topic jumped out at me. As I started looking into the other topics on the sheet, I couldn’t get the information about the Darknet world out of my mind. I think I have a bit of a fascination with the outer edges of society and that includes cyber-society. The secretive world of the Darknet is interesting in itself but setting up an ebusiness that may or may not provide illegal goods and services requires such an intricate system of safeguards that, for someone new to the tech world like myself, it is like opening the door to a bizarre and complicated dimension. Even after spending some time researching the subject, it would take hours more and I still would have barely explored the world of the cyber underbelly. The first thing a person needs to do when setting up a potentially questionable business, is to research various countries legal relationship with the country you’re based in. For the sake of this paper, we will assume we live in the U.S. Find out which have or don’t have Mutual Legal Assistance Treaties. When you......

Make sure to read the virtual “book” (or use your textbook) to correctly order the processes. When complete check your results. Copy and paste your Screen Shot here. JOURNAL QUESTIONS 1. What is the importance of the light and dark reactions in photosynthesis? Light Dependent Reaction is the initial stage of Photosynthesis Where solar energy is converted into potential energy ,the light Dependent Reaction produces oxygen Dark Reaction takes place in Stroma of the chloroplasts in photosynthetic plants, Energy from light are stored has ATP and NADPH .in Calvin cycle this stored energy is used to make sugar molecule, the Calvin cycle is a complex theory of chemical reactions carried out in stroma. 2. Why is photosynthesis important to you? it’s the basis of life... the only way for plants and animals to exist is for plants to be alive because we are consumers- heteroautotrophs.. They are producers and photoautotrophs (they feed of themselves by the sun) they release O2 and produce sugars. Without photosynthesis life wouldn't really exist. 3. Why are photosynthesis and cellular respiration viewed as complementary processes? Because they both create ATP (Energy) they function as a circle one creating CO2 and using O2, and the other Using O2 and creating......

Drosophila Lab Paper

...Drosophila were put into a population cage which had a lid that had six holes for the centrifuge tubes. Two food tubes and four clean, empty tubes were added on the first day. Each food tube consisted of half a cup full of food mixed with 6-7 milliliters of water. This was the fly medium. The food should turn blue once the water is added. Each tube was labeled with a number and with the date. Every two to three days we added one more food tube until all 6 tubes contained the fly medium. After all 6 tubes were filled, the following days after we exchanged the first food tube with a new food tube. At the end of the experiment, we fed the flies with a total of 8 food tubes. Then the flies were anesthetized, again. At the end of this four week lab, the number of living ebony and wild type Drosophila were recorded. Then the data from all the groups were combined. A spreadsheet was set up by the instructor that showed the phenotype frequencies for ebony and wild type for each date and then the data we calculated was averaged to represent each week. The q and p values were calculated for each date. Results: Week | Ebony | Wildtype | 2 | 0.498878 | 0.85 | 3 | 0.482612857 | 0.917826509 | 4 | 0.39243684 | 0.944444478 | 5 | 0.865241348 | 0.53156935 | Table 1. shows the change in relative fitness of the ebony and wild type alleles for each week.
