Neurodegenerative diseases

NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES By (Name) Course Tutor University City Date 1.1.2 Neurodegenerative Diseases Neurodegenerative diseases include a cluster of progressive chronic diseases that are categorized by the steady damage of neurons in separate locations of the Central Nervous System (Gao and Hong 2008, 357). Examples of such conditions include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson’s disease, frontotemporal dementia (FTD), spinocerebellar ataxias and Alzheimer's disease. The neuromuscular junction of a neuron is quite an extraordinary structure that is specifically vulnerable to the neurodegenerative diseases. Nonetheless, it has powerful mechanisms of...

Literature review on Dengue Virus

Student’s Name Professor’s Name Course Date Literature Review on Dengue Virus According to the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk factors report, the occurrence of the dengue virus has amplified with a 610.87% from 1990 to 2013. Over these years, there have been over 390 million cases of the dengue virus reported globally on an annual basis (Stanway et al., 712). South Asia regions account for the largest part of the virus incidences being reported annually. With countries like India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Thailand and Vietnam taking up the largest proportion of dengue fever virus cases being reported. The United States Department of Health and Human Services...

CRISPR CAS 9 use to characterize Kenyan filamentous Fungi

Name of the student Professor’s name Dissertation Abstract April 26th, 2018 CRISPR-Cas9 genomic system in characterizing a wild-type Kenyan filamentous fungus Abstract Studies suggest that there has been a rapid increase in number of fully sequenced fungal genomes. However, most genomic tools that are use to sequence and understand the features of fungal genome are poorly developed. Hence, there is a strong necessity for developing versatile methods for genetic manipulation of non-model filamentous fungi. The CRISPR-Cas9 genomic system has been used to sequence to filamentous fungi. The system is used to administer RNA-directed mutagenesis by transforming a target fungus with the help of a...

Asian Small-Clawed Otter

Name Instructor Course Date The Asian small-clawed otter The Asian small-clawed otter is a semi-aquatic mammal that is found in the southeastern part of Asia. The mammal belongs to the family of Mustelidae and subfamily of the otter. It is the smallest species if otter known in the world. The mammal has paws that are distinctive to the others, as they do not protrude beyond its webbed fingers. The way its claws are located gives it an advantage regarding dexterity as it uses them to feed on crabs and other trivial animals. The Asian small-clawed otter is often found inside the mangrove swamps in the south of Asia (Aziz 3). There are others that are found in the freshwater. The animal...
