DNA
DEOXYRIBONUCLEIC ACID (/diˈɒksiˌraɪboʊnjʊˌkliːɪk, -ˌkleɪɪk/ ( listen ); DNA) is a thread-like chain of nucleotides carrying the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses . DNA
DNA
and ribonucleic acid (RNA) are nucleic acids ; alongside proteins , lipids and complex carbohydrates (polysaccharides ), they are one of the four major types of macromolecules that are essential for all known forms of life . Most DNA
DNA
molecules consist of two biopolymer strands coiled around each other to form a double helix . The two DNA

strands are called polynucleotides since they are composed of simpler monomer units called nucleotides . Each nucleotide is composed of one of four nitrogen-containing nucleobases (cytosine , guanine , adenine or thymine ), a sugar called deoxyribose , and a phosphate group

Chromosome
A CHROMOSOME (from ancient Greek : χρωμόσωμα, chromosoma, chroma means color, soma means body) is a DNA
DNA
molecule with part or all of the genetic material (genome ) of an organism. Most eukaryotic chromosomes include packaging proteins which, aided by chaperone proteins , bind to and condense the DNA
DNA
molecule to prevent it from becoming an unmanageable tangle. Chromosomes are normally visible under a light microscope only when the cell is undergoing the metaphase of cell division . Before this happens, every chromosome is copied once ( S phase ), and the copy is joined to the original by a centromere , resulting either in an X-shaped structure (pictured to the right) if the centromere is located in the middle of the chromosome or a two-arm structure if the centromere is located near one of the ends. The original chromosome and the copy are now called sister chromatids

Anthrax
ANTHRAX is an infection caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis
Bacillus anthracis
. It can occur in four forms: skin, lungs, intestinal, and injection. Symptoms begin between one day and two months after the infection is contracted. The skin form presents with a small blister with surrounding swelling that often turns into a painless ulcer with a black center. The inhalation form presents with fever, chest pain, and shortness of breath . The intestinal form presents with diarrhea which may contain blood, abdominal pains, and nausea and vomiting. The injection form presents with fever and an abscess at the site of drug injection . Anthrax
Anthrax
is spread by contact with the spores of the bacteria , which are often from infectious animal products. Contact is by breathing, eating, or through an area of broken skin. It does not typically spread directly between people

Infectious Disease
INFECTION is the invasion of an organism's body tissues by disease -causing agents, their multiplication, and the reaction of host tissues to these organisms and the toxins they produce. INFECTIOUS DISEASE, also known as TRANSMISSIBLE DISEASE or COMMUNICABLE DISEASE, is illness resulting from an infection. Infections are caused by infectious agents including viruses , viroids , prions , bacteria , nematodes such as parasitic roundworms and pinworms , arthropods such as ticks , mites , fleas , and lice , fungi such as ringworm , and other macroparasites such as tapeworms and other helminths . Hosts can fight infections using their immune system . Mammalian hosts react to infections with an innate response, often involving inflammation , followed by an adaptive response

Hypothalamus
The HYPOTHALAMUS (from Greek ὑπό, "under" and θάλαμος, thalamus ) is a portion of the brain that contains a number of small nuclei with a variety of functions. One of the most important functions of the hypothalamus is to link the nervous system to the endocrine system via the pituitary gland (hypophysis). The hypothalamus is located below the thalamus and is part of the limbic system . In the terminology of neuroanatomy , it forms the ventral part of the diencephalon . All vertebrate brains contain a hypothalamus. In humans, it is the size of an almond . The hypothalamus is responsible for the regulation of certain metabolic processes and other activities of the autonomic nervous system . It synthesizes and secretes certain neurohormones , called releasing hormones or hypothalamic hormones, and these in turn stimulate or inhibit the secretion of pituitary hormones

Osmosis
OSMOSIS is the spontaneous net movement of solvent molecules through a semi-permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides. It may also be used to describe a physical process in which any solvent moves across a semipermeable membrane (permeable to the solvent, but not the solute) separating two solutions of different concentrations. Osmosis
Osmosis
can be made to do work. Osmotic pressure is defined as the external pressure required to be applied so that there is no net movement of solvent across the membrane. Osmotic pressure is a colligative property , meaning that the osmotic pressure depends on the molar concentration of the solute but not on its identity. Osmosis
Osmosis
is a vital process in biological systems , as biological membranes are semipermeable

Since Dmitri Ivanovsky 's 1892 article describing a non-bacterial pathogen infecting tobacco plants, and the discovery of the tobacco mosaic virus by Martinus Beijerinck in 1898, about 5,000 virus species have been described in detail, although there are millions of types. Viruses are found in almost every ecosystem on Earth and are the most abundant type of biological entity

Gross-out Humor
OFF-COLOR HUMOR (also known as VULGAR HUMOR, CRUDE HUMOR, or SHOCK HUMOR) is humor that deals with topics that may be considered to be in poor taste or overly vulgar . Many comedic genres (including jokes , prose , poems , black comedy , blue comedy , insult comedy , cringe comedy and skits ) can incorporate vulgar elements. Most commonly labeled as "off-color" are acts concerned with sex , a particular ethnic group , or gender . Other off-color topics include violence , particularly domestic abuse ; excessive swearing or profanity ; "toilet humor " / scatological humor ; national superiority or inferiority , pedophilic content, and any topics generally considered impolite or indecent . Generally, the point of off-color humor is to induce laughter by evoking a feeling of shock and surprise in the comedian's audience. In this way, off-color humor is related to other forms of postmodern humor , such as the anti-joke

Ebola
EBOLA VIRUS DISEASE (EVD), also known as EBOLA HEMORRHAGIC FEVER (EHF) or simply EBOLA, is a viral hemorrhagic fever of humans and other primates caused by ebolaviruses . Signs and symptoms typically start between two days and three weeks after contracting the virus with a fever , sore throat , muscular pain , and headaches . Then, vomiting , diarrhea and rash usually follow, along with decreased function of the liver and kidneys . At this time, some people begin to bleed both internally and externally. The disease has a high risk of death, killing between 25 and 90 percent of those infected, with an average of about 50 percent. This is often due to low blood pressure from fluid loss , and typically follows six to sixteen days after symptoms appear. The virus spreads by direct contact with body fluids , such as blood , of an infected human or other animals. This may also occur through contact with an item recently contaminated with bodily fluids

Dandruff
DANDRUFF is a skin condition that affects mainly the scalp . Symptoms include flaking and sometimes mild itchiness. It can result in social or self-esteem problems. A more severe form of the condition, which includes inflammation of the skin, is known as seborrheic dermatitis . The cause is unclear but believed to involve a number of genetic and environmental factors. The condition may worsen in the winter. It is not due to poor hygiene . The underlying mechanism involves the over growth of skin cells . Diagnosis is based on symptoms. There is no known cure. The typical treatment is with antifungal cream such as ketoconazole . Dandruff
Dandruff
affects about half of adults. Onset is usually at puberty . Males are more often affected than females. Rates decrease after the age of 50
