5.2 Social and ecological factors

Researchers think that the increase in creative thinking capacity was driven by group living because, in primates, increasing neocortex size is linked to increasing group size. We know that, even if there is not a strict hierarchy, monkeys are aware of the rank and kinship of each individual in their group, both in relation to themselves and in relation to each other. So as group size increases, each individual needs to keep track of a rapidly increasing number of relationships, which may be

1.2 2 The chromosomes that constitute the human genome

Laboratory techniques are available to aid in the preparation and staining of the chromosomes from a single cell, so that they are readily distinguished and can be photographed under the microscope. During mitosis, the chromosomes become visible (because they have condensed) and it is during mitosis that chromosome number, size and shape can be most easily studied. Every species has a particular number of chromosomes, each with a characteristic size and shape. For example, chimpanzee c

Signature Course: Democracy--Ancient and Modern
CLST 275, HISTORY 234, POLSCI 211. Democracy: Ancient and Modern. (Instructor: Jed Atkins) The ancient Greeks invented democracy, and it remains their most famous legacy. How can understanding democracy as it was conceived and practiced in ancient Greece contribute to our own understanding and practice of democracy?

Another interesting question remains: can only a parent or parents provide these necessities? (We are leaving on one side for the moment the issue of which parent.) Clearly the answer has to be no. There are many examples of people involved in parenting who are not a child's parents. For example:

  • step-parents

  • grandparents

  • aunts and uncles

  • brothers and sisters

  • friends

It’s Every Monkey for Themselves
Taking off to mend a broken heart, Vanessa Woods left safe, suburban Canberra and headed for the remote, wild and distinctly unsafe jungles of Costa Rica. She was stung so often by killer bees she developed a lethal allergy, and the monkeys she was to study were evasive, mean and aggressive. The only difference between them and her housemates was that at least she could tell her housemates apart. In this talk, science writer Vanessa Woods will explain how to survive a year in the jungle: a world

Summary of Section 6

  1. Sequence-specific protein–DNA interactions are achieved through the formation of non-covalent bonds between amino acid side-chains in the protein and bases in the major groove of the DNA.

  2. Non-sequence-specific protein–DNA interactions are achieved primarily through electrostatic interactions between positively charged amino acid side-chains and the negatively charged DNA backbone.

  3. Protein and DNA conformation can be alt
