Genetic information has become part of our culture and it is difficult to tell the difference between unmodified and genetically modified food sources such as plants and animals. After reading this module’s material regarding vectors in biotechnology, consider the potential for nanotechnology and scientific advancement. Research nanotechnology and its potential use in biotechnology. In one or two paragraphs, explain the potential advantages and disadvantages of nanotechnology in health care, agriculture, or industry, and discuss whether you would or would not support further research.

The wonderful thing about plants is that we can study them in our own backyards

The wonderful thing about plants is that we can study them in our own backyards or neighborhoods! We are surrounded by some wonderful plants in Florida, with some incredible evolutionary histories and adaptations. For this lab activity, I’d like you to take a walk outside and explore!
Please document:
1) 3 different tree species
2) 3 different flowering plant species
For each, try to identify the species (as close as you can get, use online resources), and state why you believe they fall either into the gymnosperm vs. angiosperm category.
For the documentation, either include pictures or drawings! Embed all into a Word document and upload as your assignment.
(Use the document and photos I put down below!)

Staphylococci
Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research about testing Staphylococci.
Based on your research, respond to the following:
What are the three major species of Staphylococcus? Why one of them is more pathogenic compared to the other two species? Which factor determines the pathogenesis of the organisms?
What substance is called the “spreading factor”? How does the “spreading factor” aid an organism in its quest to penetrate the host cell?

Respond to two of your peers with at least one way that a pandemic they found changed society in either medicine, economics, art or quality of life. Provide at least 2 sources for your research.
1st discussion post:
Pandemics are a mass, world wide disease spread that affects multiple nations across the globe. We are familiar with pandemics due to the SarsCoV2 virus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic. However, there is a multitude of pandemics that have afflicted the world in the past, too.
One example of a previous pandemic is the plague The plague is a disease caused by the bacteria Yersinia pestis. This bacteria is spread by fleas. It causes flu symptoms. The Black Death was a plague that caused approximately 50 million deaths in 1317.
A second example of a pandemic that occurred in the past is the Spanish Influenza. This influenza is caused by the A/H3N8 virus. It is notorious for its incredibly rapid spread and how quickly it was defined as a pandemic. This pandemic was far more recent than the Black Death plague, as it first emerged throughout the world in 1918
2nd discussion post:
Antonine Plague (165-180 AD): This plague is often referred to as the plague of Galen and was the first known pandemic to impact the Roman Empire. The location of start is not exactly known, however it is believed to have emerged in China and spread through the Silk Road by trading ships, which were in contact with the Roman military. Speculations have led scholars to believe this plague was smallpox, however there is some concern that measles was the plague. Galen and Celsus, herbalist and physician, were active in the fight against the Antonine plague. Methods of treatment included inoculation and even primitive surgery, such as cautery. For those who could not afford professional medical care (the majority), prayer, amulets, and home remedies were the only options.
The Spanish Flu (1918-1919): This is often referred to as the 1918 Flu Pandemic and caused by “an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin.” The origin of this virus is still unknown to this day, however it infected about one third of the world’s population. This was first identified in the United States in the spring of 1918 in military personnel. With no vaccine readily available, efforts were to control included non-pharmaceutical interventions. Namely, isolation/quarantine, emphasis on hygiene (hand washing/sanitizing), limiting personal contact, and gatherings.
