  1. A good example of uncommon dominant genes is polydacylism, a genetic disorder where an infant is born with an extra finger. It's usually small and nonfunctioning, and is cut off at birth.

    Why does this happen?

    Mutations in the sex cell genes of animal cause physical characteristic to be passed on to their offspring. If it is beneficiall then they will be able to have more offspring and pass on the trait. If not, the organism will die off before it can reporduce. This is Darwin's theory of evolution (without the genetics part)

  2. I beleive in God because science doesn't have all the answers, all the answers can be explained by acts of God.


    Also, when you think about how improbable our existance here on earth is, it's hard not to beleive. According to evolutionary theory, we evolved by mutations in the DNA of other organisms. Mutations are random events, so are we here by a bunch of random circumstaces? That seems to unlikely to me. I think, that a higher power is the source of these mutations.

  3. I'm Zach, I'm a high school senior from Long Island. I'm interested in the biological sciences, I've done some reseach at Stony Brook University, to discover conditions that certain virulence factors are expressed in uropathogenetic E. coli, usefull knowledge for urinary tract infections.

  4. I think life with found first on a meteor that has fallen to earth. This form of extra-terrestrial life would probably exist in simpler forms (bacteria or Archeo-Bacteria). This form of life would be the easiest to find, beceasue it doesn't involve the use a spacecraft, people can study the life right on earth more easily then if it was found on another celetial body.
