Of 24,666 suspected or confirmed cases reported, 10,179 people died.9 (links to an external site.)

Ebola is incurable and deadly. The outbreak in West Africa in 2014 was unprecedented, dwarfing other human Ebola epidemics in the level of mortality. Of 24,666 suspected or confirmed cases reported, 10,179 people died.9 (Links to an external site.)
No approved treatments or vaccines for Ebola are available. While some drugs have shown potential in laboratory studies and animal models, they have not been tested in humans for safety and effectiveness. Not only are these drugs untested or unregistered but they are also in short supply.
Given the great suffering and high mortality rates, it is fair to ask whether unregistered and untested medications are better than none at all. Should such drugs be dispensed and, if so, who should receive them, in light of their extremely limited supplies? Is it ethical to treat untested drugs on patients with Ebola? On the other hand, is it ethical to withhold potentially life-saving drugs from dying patients? Or should the drugs perhaps be reserved for health-care providers working to contain the disease?
In August 2014, two infected US aid workers and a Spanish priest were treated with ZMapp, an unregistered drug that had been tested in monkeys but not in humans. The two American aid workers recovered, but the priest died. Later that month, the WHO released a report on the ethics of treating patients with the drug. Since Ebola is often fatal, the panel reasoned that it is ethical to give the unregistered drugs and unethical to withhold them for safety concerns. This situation is an example of “compassionate use” outside the well-established system of regulation and governance of therapies.
When do you feel it is ethical to provide unregistered drugs and when is it unethical? In a substantial post (minimum 250 words), explain your reasoning and cite sources used to support your position. Your answer should go beyond, “In my opinion…” statements. We all have opinions, what we want to discuss is a position you support developed by evidence.

Questions regarding the requirements of these papers, please.

report must be based on a biology article
concerning some aspect of aquatic biology. The articles can
come from any newspaper or periodical. A good source is from
the “Science Times” section of the New York Times newspaper
(this section is only found in Tuesday’s editions). The New
York Times can be bought at many coffeehouses or
supermarkets. You can also view it for free at the library or on-
line from your home computer. If you use the library, please do
not take the’
“Science Times” section, or any newspaper for that
matter. That is basically stealing, and robbing other students of
access to the paper. A copy of the article is not required with
your submission, but you must include a reference for your
article. The report should be approximately two pages long, and
include a complete summary of the article and a personal
editorial (Critue/self reflection), as well as the reference(s). If you have any other
questions regarding the requirements of these papers, please.

Also, don’t worry about the name date, and period i’ll do that myself.

Hey! I attached the photo of the steps that need to be done but you need to do this project based on the Egrets & Cattle. Also, don’t worry about the name date, and period I’ll do that myself.

• an explanation for the role performed by each of the three enzymes i’ve asked you to know (rna primase, dna polymerase, and ligase).

Homework 3: DNA Replication
DNA replication is a complicated process, and it’s difficult (especially now with Covid and online learning) for me to tell if the entire thing is sinking in for students. To ensure that you understand the process I want you to write out a step-by-step explanation for how DNA replication works, from the start with a single double-stranded DNA molecule, to the end with two double-stranded DNA molecules. Your explanation should include the following:
• An organized and numbered list, where each step in the process is given a number (ex: Step 1, Step 2, Step 3, etc.)
• Six or more steps. If it seems like you can use fewer then you probably are not going into sufficient detail. More than six steps is completely fine.
• An explanation for the role performed by each of the three enzymes I’ve asked you to know (RNA primase, DNA polymerase, and Ligase).
• An explanation for how DNA polymerase knows what nucleotide to add next
If you are uncertain about any of the steps involved please email me or visit my office hours so that I can go over this in detail with you and ensure the process is clear in your mind.

So you know exactly what is expected of this assignment.

Read the following abstract and data figure from a research paper.
1. What hypothesis are the researchers testing with these data?
2. Describe the results presented in the figure—what do you conclude from interpreting these data?
Do you think the researchers’ hypothesis was correct?
3. Explain how anthropogenic climate change will have (or has had) direct negative effects on you
personally, and describe the ultimate causes of anthropogenic climate change.

Chen, et al. (2011) Rapid range shifts of species associated with high levels of climate warming.
Science 333: 1024-1026. https://www.science.org/doi/full/10.1126/science.1206432
Abstract
The distributions of many terrestrial organisms are currently shifting in latitude or elevation in
response to changing climate. Using a meta-analysis, we estimated that the distributions of species
have recently shifted to higher elevations at a median rate of 11.0 meters per decade, and to higher
latitudes at a median rate of 16.9 kilometers per decade. These rates are approximately two and
three times faster than previously reported. The distances moved by species are greatest in studies
showing the highest levels of warming, with average latitudinal shifts being generally sufficient to
track temperature changes. However, individual species vary greatly in their rates of change,
suggesting that the range shift of each species depends on multiple internal species traits and
external drivers of change. Rapid average shifts derive from a wide diversity of responses by
individual species.

Using you knowledge and any information from this article answer the following:
https://www.embopress.org/doi/full/10.1093/emboj/cdg359
Antibodies A, B, and C are identified against a particular antigen. After solving the structures of the antibody:antigen complexes, their properties are as follows: (10 points)
-Antibody A has a shape complementary score (Sc) of 0.73, buries 2000 A2 of surface area when binding to the antigen, forms 8 hydrogen bonds and 1 salt bridge with the antigen.
-Antibody B has a Sc score of 0.65, buries 1200 A2 of surface area, forms 1 H-bond and 5 salt bridges with the antigen.
-Antibody C has a Sc score of 0.62, buries 1800 A2 of surface area, forms 0 H-bonds and 0 salt bridges.
A. The interface with which antibody is likely to be the most hydrophobic? Why?
B. The interface with which antibody is most likely to be weakened substantially by a large change in pH? Why?
C. Overall, which antibody would you expect has the highest affinity for the antigen, and why?
D. Suppose the antigen in question is a viral membrane protein, and it is discovered that two of the three antibodies can prevent viral attachment to host cells, thereby neutralizing infection. How can the sum total of information learned about the three antibodies be useful?
