    In order to understand a little bit about the effects of common household drugs such as nicotine and caffeine on pulsation rate, an experiment was conducted with Lumbriculus Variegattus (Blackworms). In week 1, we observed the basal rate of three different worms, and then placed the same three worms on different concentrations of caffeine and nicotine. “Caffeine is known to act as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain; it promotes sleep and suppresses aurosal, binding to the adenosine neurotransmitter receptor to block its inhibitory action” (CCNY lab manual, 2014). Before our experiment was conducted we hypothesized that increasing the concentration of caffeine will increase the pulsation rate. During this experiment we used 1.0mM, 3.0mM, and 10.0mM concentrations of caffeine. The highest the concentration the more effect it would have on the pulsation rate, so in this case we could assume that 10.0mM would have the highest effect on the pulsation rate of the blackworms.…

    Bioaugmentation is used in several clean-up operations such as waste water management, cleaning and odour control, as well as surface cleanup and remediation. The first use of bioaugmentation, i.e. waste water management relies on certain microbes to degrade organic material, under controlled conditions. This is an example of a catabolic reaction, in order to treat waste water. The second example is cleaning and odour control of tiles, wood or concrete. The microorganisms penetrate the cracks in the above mentioned materials, using the grease/spills as a food source and removing them. Third, bioaugmentation is used in surface cleanup and remediations which involves cleaning materials such as asphalt, concrete, metal and other equipment that comes in contact with oil, gasoline and grease. This is useful in factories and industries to maintain a clean and safe work environment.…
