Kyle Reed October 3, 2006 Response Paper 7 Emergence of Life in the Universe 1.)

They stated that the motor consist of at least 40 different parts, 30 of which are not present on any other bacteria. I find it hard to believe that these tails that the bacteria use to move around were just mutated over generations into something useful. 2.)

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
