Abstract This was a study on identifying different mutant E. coli donor and recipient cells and determining the efficiency of conjugation between them. Different dilutions of donor and recipient cells were first plated on L-agar without chloramphenicol, L-agar with chloramphenicol, and MacConkey plates in . . .

Abstract This was a study on determining the inheritance mechanisms for different physical traits found in Drosophila melanogaster. In order to accomplish this, a reciprocal cross was performed by mating wild type male flies with mutant female flies and then wild type female flies with mutant male flies. . . .
Abstract This study was on the Mendelian phenotype ratio of corn and sorghum. Second generation corn and sorghum seeds were planted, monitored, and observed for three weeks. The phenotypes of the plants grown were recorded. Using a chi-squared test, the observed phenotypic ratios were compared to Mendelian . . .
