TEHRAN (FNA)- New research suggests that separating germ cells -- sperm and eggs -- from somatic cells -- all other cells -- preserves the genetic building blocks while allowing organisms
to flourish in a somewhat hazardous environment.
When Mehta and Baross sequenced a bit of DNA, they found that FS406-22 is an anaerobic archaean, a one-celled organism
that looks like a bacterium but has chemical similarities to multicelled organisms
causes a variety of clinical signs, including endocarditis, which is seen most commonly in immunocompetent, homeless men with a history of alcohol abuse (5).

The Cambridge, United Kingdom--based Wellcome Trust Sanger institute (WTSI) was founded in 1993 to provide a center for research on the genomes of humans and other organisms
Krill are--, or an organism
with an external skeleton, body, and paired, jointed legs.
Design a poster illustrating each identified marine organism
and its identifying characteristics.
Actinomyces, a commensal organism
of the oral cavity, is often found in the tonsillar crypts, where it exists asymptomatically.
Yet a man or woman is not truly an organism
in the sense that a rabbit or a lion or a whale is.
When plated, the organism
exhibits a unique form of motility and colony formation.
This is the challenge that modern biochemistry poses for Darwinian evolution, for it has mounted impressive evidence that if certain biological structures were any simpler, the host organism
would have perished.
In one of those sublime revelations that dot the history of complexity research, Kauffman later discovered that he had duplicated a long-known principle of genetics: that the number of cell types in an organism
is roughly equal to the square root of the number of its genes.
The agreement will provide AureoGen access to several patent protected antibiotic compounds, as well as a proprietary organism
that produces a potent antifungal compound.
pneumoniae; the organism
was resistant to all [beta]-lactam antimicrobial drugs tested, including cefepime, ceftriaxone, piperacillin/tazobactam, imipenem, fluoroquinolones, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, gentamicin, and tobramycin.
As with the musks, there may be many chemicals that by themselves are not toxic but similarly inhibit the efflux transporters and thereby expose the organism
to normally excluded toxicants.
