Genetic engineering promises much in the fields, animal husbandry, food crops.
If we take genetically modified food, especially plants, we can improve crop fields for example.
It is all too easy that we forget about the risks. The risks are great.

Although I am not in favor of genetic engineering, there are several arguments ... mehr

Is a dangerous disease of the lungs. The substances in cigarette smoke cause a 'smoker's cough' which bursts the weakened alveoli. It causes the gaseous exchange surface in the lun ... mehr
I am investigating the effect of temperature on the enzyme amylase and the breakdown of starch. I want to find the optimum temperature the enzymes work ay.
I will keep the same volumes of amylase and starch but always change the temperature of the starch and amylase.

»Es gibt keine Zeit im Outback.
Nur die Tyrannei der Distanz und die Herrschaft der Weite.
Entweder man haßt sie oder man liebt sie.
Kompromisse gibt es nicht.«
Zitat aus Rolf Henniges \"Australien\"
Das Outback, frei übersetzt, \'das Land draußen vor der Tür\', ist überall dort, wohin die Zivilisation mit ihrer dichten Besiedelung und ihren Annehmlichkeiten noch nicht vorgedrungen ist.
In Australien ist das freilich fast ü ... mehr
