Encyclopedia > Biological process

A biological process is a process of a living organism. Biological processes are made up of any number of chemical reactions or other events that results in a transformation. In science, a process is any method (or event) that results in a transformation in a physical or biological object, a substance or an organism. ... Chemical reactions are also known as chemical changes. ... In chemistry a chemical transformation shows the conversion of a substrate to a product omitting the reagents and catalysts or underlying reaction mechanism as opposed to a chemical reaction. ...


Regulation of biological processes occurs where any process is modulated in its frequency, rate or extent. Biological processes are regulated by many means; examples include the control of gene expression, protein modification or interaction with a protein or substrate molecule. Gene expression, also called protein expression or often simply expression is the process by which a genes DNA sequence is converted into the structures and functions of a cell. ...


Biological processes are often regulated by genetics. Mutant phenotypes may lead to interruptions to a biological process.


Viruses have a set of biological processes by which they reproduce. Orders A virus is a submicroscopic particle that can infect the cells of a biological organism. ...


Biological processes include:

Schematic of cell adhesion The study of cell adhesion is part of cell biology. ... Cells in culture, stained for keratin (red) and DNA (green). ... In biology, extracellular matrix (ECM) is any material part of a tissue that is not part of any cell. ... Intercellular communication is communication between different cells via chemical messengers. ... Cells in culture, stained for keratin (red) and DNA (green). ... In biology, extracellular matrix (ECM) is any material part of a tissue that is not part of any cell. ... Morphogenesis (from the Greek morphê shape and genesis creation) is one of three fundamental aspects of developmental biology along with the control of cell growth and cellular differentiation. ... The term cell growth is used in two different ways in biology. ... Embryonic stem cells differentiate into cells in various body organs. ... In biology, pigment is any material resulting in color in plant or animal cells which is the result of selective absorption. ... Biological reproduction is the biological process by which new individual organisms are produced. ... A cell is a single unit or compartment, enclosed by a border or wall. ... In biology and ecology, an organism (in Greek organon = instrument) is a living complex adaptive system of organs that influence each other in such a way that they function as a more or less stable whole. ... Secretion is the process of segregating, elaborating, and releasing chemicals from a cell, or a secreted chemical substance or amount of substance. ... Ribbon diagram of the enzyme TIM. TIM is catalytically perfect, meaning its conversion rate is limited, or nearly limited to its substrate diffusion rate. ... Gene expression, also called protein expression or often simply expression is the process by which a genes DNA sequence is converted into the structures and functions of a cell. ... The term stimulus (plural: stimuli) has several related meanings: In physiology, a stimulus is something external that elicits or influences a physiological or psychological activity or response. ... Fermentation in progress Fermentation typically refers to the conversion of sugar to alcohol using yeast. ... Categories: Biology stubs ... Sunflower seedlings, just three days after germination Germination is the process in botany where growth emerges from a resting stage. ... // Gravitropism (or geotropism) is a turning or growth movement by a plant in response to gravity. ... Phototropia is a botanical term for an organisms movement (tropism) in response to light. ... In genetics, hybridisation is the process of mixing different species or varieties of organisms. ... A Pieris rapae larva An older Pieris rapae larva A Pieris rapae pupa A Pieris rapae adult Metamorphosis is a process in biology by which an individual physically develops after birth or hatching, and involves significant change in form as well as growth and differentiation. ... The leaf is the primary site of photosynthesis in plants. ... Transpiration is a process caused by the evaporation of water from leaves of plants and its corresponding uptake from roots in the soil. ...

Aerobic biological process for treating waste sludges - Patent 5271845 (3459 words)
Process according to claim 12, wherein said heating is carried out during initial emulsification to assist in stripping of organic contaminants from inorganic contaminants contained in the waste sludge.
Process according to claim 16, wherein heat released through the biological exothermic activity is used to reduce the volume of treated waste sludge by evaporation of water contained in the treated sludge.
In practice, the process is used to treat oily sludges while reducing the volume of the sludge by as much as 60% as a result of the water loss from the waste sludge due to the application of the exothermic biological energy.
