Introduction The order Sarcoptiformes, class Arachnida, and subclass Acari all include the Sarcoptes scabiei. Scabies was one of the first human ailments for which a cause could be found. The perpetrator is the mite Sarcoptes scabiei, which is found in the epidermis of numerous mammals, including humans. This mite was first known as Acarus scabiei DeGeer, 1778, before changing its name to S. scabiei (Latreille 1802). Over the past 40 years, research has substantially advanced our understanding of the biology of the mite, interactions between the parasite and the host, and tactics used to circumvent the host's defences. What is ... Read More

Introduction The realization that microorganisms alone control a vast portion of the evolving community of living things is incredibly astounding. They are the most common life forms in the living environment. Microscopic creatures are present everywhere. This characteristic can be attributed to the great variety of microorganisms and the fact that many of them have evolved to survive in harsh environmental circumstances. Characteristics of Monera The members of the kingdom Monera are single-celled creatures. The rigid cell wall's main component is peptidoglycan. Binary fission is the mode of reproduction. They have 70S ribosomes in them. The organ ... Read More

Introduction The human body is supported by a hard frame of a skeleton. Bones and cartilages are their main components. The skeletal system is divided into exoskeleton and endoskeleton. The human endoskeleton is made of 206 bones and some supporting cartilage. The skeleton has various functions such as Supporting the body Giving definite shape Protecting internal organs providing a surface for attachment of muscles Help in movement and locomotion. Bones are hard, immovable, and made of calcium salts. Cartilages are comparatively movable due to the presence of chondroitin salts. The study of various joints and their structure and ... Read More

Introduction Roots are the vital organs of plants that help in support and water and nutrition absorption and transport. There are 2 types of root systems: Tap root system Adventitious or fibrous root system. Images Coming soon Tap Root When a seed germinates, the radicle elongates and becomes a taproot or primary root. In dicotyledonous plants, the main root is persistent and produces lateral roots. All younger roots arise at the apex and older roots at the base. The taproot and its branches form the taproot system. Adventitious Root Adventitious roots grow from a part of the plant ...

Introduction To sustain life, we have to eat food. The nutrients that are present in the food give us the energy to work, run and play. In addition, these nutrients protect us from diseases, heal our wounds, and keep up healthy. Many of the nutrients present in the food are macromolecules that are essential for the build-up of the body. For example, proteins help in the building of muscles in our body. The main source of energy is carbohydrates while nucleic acid carries hereditary information. All living organisms need the macromolecule in their daily diet. But if we are not ... Read More

Introduction The term "vitamin" was first used by "Dr. Casimir Funk'' in 1912. Vitamins were previously known as vitamines (brief for vital amines), but the term was simplified to vitamins after scientists learned the chemicals didn't need amines. Vitamins that dissolved in fat were designated as "fat-soluble A" vitamins and those that dissolved in water as "water-soluble B" vitamins in 1913. After that, the vitamins were called according to the order in which they were discovered, although scientists made numerous errors and recategorised the vitamins. " Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins'', an English Biochemist, received the Nobel Prize for his role ... Read More

Introduction to Cell Division Reproduction and growth are two of the most defining characteristics of a living organism. Be it a unicellular bacterium or a complex multicellular human being, the cells of all organisms undergo division, giving rise to two daughter cells. The eukaryotic cell cycle is an ordered and tightly regulated series of events that cause duplication of a cell’s genome and its division into two daughter cells. In mitosis, a parent cell divides and results in two daughter cells. Each daughter cell receives the same number of chromosomes as were present in the parent cell. However, sexually-reproducing organisms ... Read More

Introduction The inception of the earth took place some 4.5 billion years ago. Life is estimated to have first appeared on earth some 3.6 billion years ago and ever since, there has been a continuous evolution and extinction of countless microbes, animals and plants. The animal life on earth is particularly fascinating. Their evolution from a minute cells to such complex lifeforms that ambulate, hunt, reproduce and fight for survival is truly amazing. The animals that we see today such as lions and tigers, rhinos, elephants, dolphins and whales, are particularly attractive due to their large size. Interestingly, the ancestors ... Read More
