Hey Aiswarya, nice research so far! Knowing the differences between these two contrasting systems of viral reproduction is certainly important! If you haven't already I would check out DR. Graham Hatfull (University of Pittsburgh/HHMI) who does some videos on bacteriophages (which would relate to your topic) among other science videos. He is very informative, although you may find the video a bit dry as it is quite long. Even if you just checked out his research you might find some...

Re: RR4C2 - Virus Life Cycle (Differences)

Hey Aiswarya! This was a great research round! I really appreciate your breaking up your information into smaller sections so that the research is more comprehensive and concise. One question that I have is: do different viruses go through these cycles, or can the same virus undergo different cycles, but behave differently? Here's a link which I hope will help with your research: - https://www.boundless.com/biol...riophages-553-11763/ Good luck!

Re: RR5C2 - Virus Life Cycle

Hey Aiswarya, Thats very fascinating, I never knew that the viruses evolve with the host. I know a lot of people who live in areas where certain viruses are common, they adapt and become immune to that virus (ex. malaria) but is it possible to be infected by the same virus twice? Here is a link that I hope will help answer Anika's question: https://www.reddit.com/r/asksc...nd_lysogenic_cycles/ Great research, and I look forward to your next round!

Re: RR5C2 - Virus Life Cycle

Hi Aiswarya, Your research is very interesting. I never thought about how both viruses and its host co-evolve, but upon further reflection it seems to make sense. Often, a virus will infect an organism and the organism will evolve overtime and may become immune to the virus. At the same time, that same virus evolves and finds a way to bypass the organism's immunity and give itself the ability to infect that organism again. This cycle seems to never end and may explain a lot more about...

Re: RR5C2 - Virus Life Cycle

Hey Adithya Great question. I am not sure wheather a virus can cause humans to devolve but however, the human immunodeficiency virus is a virus that does destabilise the immune system, so it is similar to devolution in a way. But I will research about this and let you know as soon as I can.

Re: RR5C2 - Virus Life Cycle

Hi Aiswarya, When you previously discussed how viruses may influence human evolution, I never considered that humans may influence the evolution of viruses. The quote you chose perfectly summarized your post. A question I have for you is how would the lack of viruses in a community affect the population of a society? I look forward to reading your next post!

Re: Project Plan 4

Hey Juliana! First of all, your project plan is so organized and I think that it's a great way for readers to follow your future posts. Your inquiry question is super interesting and I can't wait to read your research. I know that I will definitely learn many things that I do not know. Maybe you can look into really rare genetic disorders and what is the likeness of someone having it. Good luck!

Re: Cycle #2- Fossil Fuel Companies and Climate Change

Stephen Kinyua (Thome) ·
This is a very interesting research. Fossil fuel mining has contributed greatly to climate change and also affecting the total amount of carbon four oxide in the atmosphere, one of the most dangerous gases present in the atmosphere. This gas has had a significant effect on global warming which in turn has affected the amount of rain received in an area. I think that doing some bit of research on global warming would greatly improve your research. Good luck

Hi Amanda, Climate change is a very concerning topic and I agree, it should definitely be discussed. We need to find ways to solve this problem, which is a factor that you can incorporate in your research. What can we do to help? Is it even possible to help? If so, to what extent? You could also talk about the greenhouse effect, which would also be an interesting way of going. I like how you chose fossil fuel companies as another factor. I found a link that may help with further research on...

Wow Maiya I am so happy for you! I think it's really cool how you came to a realization that ignorance is bliss, but continued to push through your research, instead of shutting it down. Seeing you diving into an uncommon topic like this without doubt and hesitation is truly amazing. I can really relate to the feeling of "the world had suddenly changed" after some intense research on a specific topic! Well done Maiya!!!

Hi There is this thing that has always remained unknown to me, what is the difference between I, Me and Self. I think it's really good to differentiate, understand and build on our strengths. The other thing that I still can't differentiate is spirit and soul. I really love your progressive way of writing a metamorphosis which I sincerely didn't know how to write one before.

Wow what a cool topic! I love reading everyone's end of cycle posts and hearing about their growth and learning. It was very interesting to me that you said that through this project you have become more 'self-conscious.'

Hey Angela! This is some awesome research! Ozone layer depletion is one of the many environmental issues facing the planet right now, and it is especially dangerous for us humans, and other organisms like us.

That's an interesting topic you've got there, perhaps you could look at the different body types that professional athletes have in their sports, because they're more likely to be at that level if they have the right body type for the sport.

Re: Cycle 1, Research Round 1 - Does Fame Impact Life Expectancy?

Hey Joanna, Great post! I really appreciated how you compared the average lifespan of a celebrity with that of someone "normal." What I was thinking about is whether or not it is fame itself that causes a higher death rate for celebs or whether it is the new things that are introduced to someone who has just entered "the world of fame." When I say things, I am referring to street drugs, alcohol, online/public hate, paparazzi, etc. So, if you could look into whether or not celebrities who...

Re: Cycle 1, Research Round 5 - Does Fame Impact Life Expectancy?

Hi Joanna! I think that natural human instinct is to try and be the best because "survival of the fittest" right? so everything you are saying like how it boosts ego and also how fame probably acts as sort of validation to certain people, (the pictures and wanting of attention from "fans"). They see the good parts of famous people's lives and want that for themselves. Everyone growing up, knows that attention somehow leads to good things happening, most of the time, this comes from family...

Hi, Joanna! this is a really interesting topic. I noticed that in your post, you have discussed the three reasons to be famous. I totally agree with your idea, and I think the reason why someone has strong desire to be famous is related to the childhood they had. Parents are the essential factor that influences their children. If the parent has a strong desire to themselves, then their children possibly have an intense ego. Also, I am curious about what will people want after they get the...

What I found was that people are naturally inclined to create "in-groups" and "out-groups" (often based upon permanent qualities such as ethnicity). They want to be part of the "in-group", so they resort to racial slurs (bullying) to further establish their position as the dominant...

Wow, Cool topic! Colonization and invasion always lead to moving demographics, tumult and often civil or ethnic wars. However, colonization is not a new (as of Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, etc.) idea and nations have colonized each other since, well, as far back as you can trace. Though most people are familiar with european colonization in Africa, and the America's not as many are familiar with Asian colonization. This looks interesting! Ben Laird
