Macromolecule Comparison of Dog Treats

Macromolecule Comparison of Dog Treats

The purpose of this project was to compare the amount of macromolecules that would be absorbed from four different flour based dog biscuits (soy, sorghum, wheat, and brown rice), and determine which base… continue reading →

Soybean Peroxidase

Soybean Peroxidase

This study tested which type of soybean has the most peroxidase. The function of peroxidase found in soybeans is to initiate the growth process when the plant is growing or injured. The hypothesis was… continue reading →

Which Brands of Organic Tofu are Genetically Modified?

Which Brands of Organic Tofu are Genetically Modified?

If five brands of organic tofu are tested, then at least one will be genetically modified, because of cross-pollination and the difficulty of maintaining truly organic crops. The DNA was tested using… continue reading →

The Effect of Soil on Plant Growth

The Effect of Soil on Plant Growth

Have you ever been curious if the type of soil used affects how plants grow? Five soybean seeds were planted 2.5 cm deep, in separate pots of each type of soil. After seeds were planted, all 10 plants… continue reading →

Grafting Peas and Beans

Grafting Peas and Beans

Grafting is a common gardening technique that unites a scion (top of one plant) with a rootstock (the root of another plant). Often times people graft their plants in order to repair a broken or injured… continue reading →

Increasing Soybean Germination Rate

Increasing Soybean Germination Rate

Seed germination begins with the rupturing of the seed coat and the emergence of the radicle, which will form the first roots of the seedling. Molybdenum is a catalyst for several enzymatic reactions in… continue reading →

Paper Mill Sludge: A Usable Fertilizer?

Paper Mill Sludge: A Usable Fertilizer?

Approximately 10 billion tons of PMS are produced annually by the paper industry and pose a major disposal problem for paper mills. One possible solution to the industry’s problem is the use of PMS as… continue reading →

The Correlation Between the GL1 Gene and the Glabrous Phenotype In Various Arabidopsis Ecotypes

The Correlation Between the GL1 Gene and the Glabrous Phenotype In Various Arabidopsis Ecotypes

Various arabidopsis plants were found to not have trichomes (plant hairs) and the reason was unknown. As trichomes assist with plant pathogenic defense, what would result in the plant losing this defense… continue reading →
