Early Years of Biology     Microbiology is a branch of biology & it's a study of Microorganisms. Microorganisms are smallest life forms in the world that includes Bacteria, Archaea, Fungi, Algae & Protozoans. Microbiology have a very long, rich history. At many different times scientists were discovered many interesting things. In 1670s Microscopes were developed. First time in the history, an organism was observed & Submitted at Roya Society in 1670s mid. The first Observation was done by a Dutch merchant anton van leeuwanhoek & he called that as animalcules.

                                        What  Causes Jaundice Jaundice is essentially a yellowing either at the skin level or at the sclera, which is the white of the eye. Jaundice is usually a complication of an increase in bilirubin. This is a type of by-product from the breakdown of ham, which is a breakdown product of part of hemoglobin of red blood cell. Now to develop jaundice you need to have approximately two point five milligrams per 100 mils of blood of bilirubin in your blood. T ..read more

D614G virus Spreads in Malaysia Recently, a great deal of attention has become focused on a specific SARS-CoV2 mutant in which amino acid residue 614 of the spike protein is changed from aspartic acid to the less bulky and more neutral glycine. This mutant, D614G, reported by Korber et al., has become increasingly predominant after first seemingly proliferating in Europe, then spreading rapidly elsewhere. Highlights The new coronavirus that causes COVID-19 disease has been quite a mystery for researchers and medical professionals. A new strain of the virus has been reported in Malays ..read more

D614G Mutation On SARS-CoV-2 The D614G mutation in SARS-CoV-2 is infamous for its rising dominance worldwide. This mutation changes the amino acid at position 614, from D (aspartic acid) to G (glycine).  So, D-614-G. The initial D614 is now the G614 variant.  Table Of Contents Is D614G Mutation More Transmissible? In a July study printed in Cell, Dr. Bette Korber, a computational biologist and population geneticist, and colleagues at the Los Alamos National Laboratory analyzed SARS-CoV-2 sequences from 999 patients in the UK. Results showed patients infected with the G614 va ..read more

Table Of Contents What is Microbiology?  Microbiology is the study of biological organisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye (without using such tools as the magnifying glass or microscope). Microbiology is therefore dedicated to studying the lives and characteristics of a wide variety of organisms ranging from bacteria and archaea to parasitic worms in their environments. Here, the discipline is used to learn about all aspects of the organisms in order to not only determine how they live in their environment, but also how they impact their r ..read more

Table Of Contents Overview Infant jaundice is yellow discoloration of a newborn baby's skin and eyes. Infant jaundice occurs because the baby's blood contains an excess of bilirubin, a yellow pigment of red blood cells. Infant jaundice is a common condition, particularly in babies born before 38 weeks' gestation (preterm babies) and some breast-fed babies. Infant jaundice usually occurs because a baby's liver isn't mature enough to get rid of bilirubin in the bloodstream. In some babies, an underlying disease may cause infant jaundice. Most infants born between 35 weeks' gestation and full ..read more

Table Of Contents Overview Jaundice is a condition in which the skin, whites of the eyes and mucous membranes turn yellow because of a high level of bilirubin, a yellow-orange bile pigment. Jaundice has many causes, including hepatitis, gallstones and tumors. In adults, jaundice usually doesn't need to be treated. The color of the skin and whites of the eyes will vary depending on levels of bilirubin. Bilirubin is a waste material found in the blood. Moderate levels lead to a yellow color, while very high levels will appear brown. About 60 percent of all infants born in the United ..read more

Structure Of Covid-19 Most tests for the new strain of coronavirus involve taking a swab sample for analysis. The virus known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) causes coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19). Developing reliable tests for the virus is essential to slow its spread. Currently, these tests are for people at risk of developing severe COVID-19. For example, healthcare professionals will likely prioritize testing for older adults who may have the infection.
