Asked in Genetics
What is the relationship between mutation rates and generation span?
The relationship between mutation rates and generation span is that they both have in impact on the Mitochondrial DNA diversity patterns,unexpected variation of mutation rate across species ...
Which environmental factors can increase the rate of mutations in organisms?
Generally i find, factors like being in a museum, with one un-accounted genetically enhanced spider is a likely factor. also barrels of nuclear waste, falling of trucks can also increase mutation rates. ...
Asked in Evolution
What three factors can cause an increase in the rate of evolution?
1. An increase in the rate of reproductive variation. Example: any factor that increases mutation rates, such as an increase in radiation levels. 2. Anything that increases the rate of attrition of less reproductively fit individuals. Example: an increase in predation. 3. In smaller populations, variations in alleles can become fixed much faster. ...
Asked in Auto Loans and Financing
How are interest rates being affected in the auto industry?
Higher interest rates mean that the demand for cars have increased, due to an increase in consumer demand. Lower interest rates mean that there is a lower demand and the FOMC is lowering the rates to increase consumer demand. Lower rates, however could also increase the demand for cars. This is why the Feds have to higher the interest rates, to ensure that the supply and demand are at an equilibrium point. ...
Asked in Biology, Genetics, Biotechnology
What is considered to be the average natural mutation rate that occurs during DNA replication?
It is suggested that mutation rates are on the order of 10 X(neg8) per site per generation. ...
Asked in Economics, Inflation
If expected inflation increases interest rates are likely to increase?
Yes, inflation and increases in interest rates usually go hand-in-hand, though inflation is not the sole cause of an increase in interest rates ...
Asked in Demographics
Where are the highest rates of natural increase found in the world?
The highest rates of natural increase are found where the most resources are located. Usually these resources are around water. ...

Why your pulse rates increased as you run?
Apperantly it increases because you are doing more things ( run ) which is exersice and this causes your heart to increase which also causes your pulse rates t increase .... Heart rates are triggered by how much exertion you are forcing upon your body, so if you exercise a whole lot and run a whole bunch, your heart rates will increase rapidly. ...
What is genetic drift increased by?
Lack of a selection factor. In the absence of selection pressure from natural, sexual or artificial sources, the propagation of random genes would increase. Mutation rates may also be tuned to optimise genetic drift (emphasis on may!). ...
