1. What are the ways babies acquire their micro-biome and what is the relationship between age, diet, and health (10 points)? a. We acquire our micro-biome at birth, we become coated with bacteria some are swallowed and colonize in the digestive track. Getting maternal bacteria an also start our immune system. Since the diet of the mother is also the diet of the baby, what the mother eats can be transmitted in the micro-biome. Such as pathogens that are agents of diseases. According to, Genetic Science Learning Center, “Our microbes vary with gender, diet, climate, age, occupation, and hygiene. Even differences in our genes influence our microbial populations—indirectly by affecting things like the acidity of the digestive tract, and also more directly through variations in proteins on our cells that communicate with microbes... ("Your Changing Microbiome", 2017) 2. Discuss at least 5 human viral infections and how are Ebola and HIV similar and how are they different in their relationship with a human host (20 points)? a. A rhinovirus infect membranes and can cause common colds. The immune system is then able to fight off all infected cells bringing the host back to normal. b. Bacteriophages begin their replication the same way which is when they attach to a bacterial cell and inject DNA. Then they split ways in which they replicate, the lytic way follows with the host producing viral components that self-assemble as virus particles The cell wall of the host is then broke down by a viral encoded enzyme which kills the cell and releases viral particles into the environment’s lysogenic pathway integrates the Viral DNA is directly the integrated with the genome and viral genes are not directly expressed. The cell then reproduces and

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
