Bibliography lists 8 sources. Listeria.wps

Pseudomonas aeruginosa Genetic Defects and Epithelial Uptake : An 8 page paper discussing the inability of genetically defective P. aeruginosa to successfully invade epithelial cells. A disturbing development of recent years is that many of the old standby antibiotics are no longer having sufficient effect on the old standby bacteria on which they have been used for years for effective control of disease. Genetic mapping of some of the most common disease-causing organisms, however, has led to the ability to genetically alter many disease organisms to the point that their potential virulence is affected. Bibliography lists 8 sources. Pseudo.wps

The Necessary View Of Evolutionary Biology : A 5 page paper discussing skepticism levied toward evolutionary biology because of the difficulty in categorizing it. The traits of humans to categorize things and ideas can block recognition of the gains that can be made through evolutionary biology. The common view of the discipline generally falls outside the range of the pure scientific method and lacks the flamboyance required by the arts. The inabilities of those two broad categories to make evolutionary biology into their frames of reference, however, is the fault of those disciplines—not of evolutionary biology.

The Biology of and Current Research in Termites (Isoptera) : A 13 page paper discussing termites from ecological and research perspectives. Ubiquitous creatures, termites are found literally all over the world except in its coldest regions—Alaska is the only state of the Union without some form of known termite activity. There had been surprisingly little research done until only the last several years, but the path of that research has differed from that of other disciplines in that nearly all of it has pointed and specific purpose, and not all of that in control measures. Only about 10 percent of the world’s more than 2,700 species are destructive. One that is causing the "Second Battle of New Orleans," the Formosan termite, is attracting the attention even of the US Congress.

Does The Human Brain Make Us Unique? : An 8 page paper discussing aspects of both the philosophical and physiological arguments in the continuing debate. In the naturalistic world view of humanism, the annihilation of other species is a crime against life.

There is indeed something that sets us apart from the rest of the earth’s animals, likely centered in the brain but as yet undiscovered. Bibliography lists 11 sources. BrainGen.wps

The Human Brain / Are We Unique? : A 12 page research paper that looks at rather or not the human brain is a unique phenomenon.

Bibliography lists 10 sources. Brainhum.wps

Natural Selection : A 5 page overview and analysis of Darwin’s proposal of the theory of natural selection.
