Germplasm is a term used to describe the genetic resources, or more precisely the DNA of an organism and collections of that material. ... The germ plasm (or polar plasm) is a zone found in the the cytoplasm of the egg cells of some model organisms (such as C. elegans, Drosophila, Xenopus), which contains determinants that will give rise to the germ cell lineage. ...

In physics and chemistry, a plasma is typically an ionized gas, and is usually considered to be a distinct phase of matter.
The dynamics of plasmas interacting with external and self-generated magnetic fields are studied in the academic discipline of magnetohydrodynamics.
For many purposes the electric field in a plasma may be treated as zero, although when current flows the voltage drop, though small, is finite, and density gradients are usually associated with an electric field according to the Boltzmann relation.
In physics and chemistry, plasma (also called an ionised gas) is an energetic gas-phase state of matter in which some or all of the electrons in the outer atomic orbitals have become separated from the atom or molecule.
Commonly encountered forms of plasma include the Sun and other stars (which are plasmas heated by nuclearfusion), lit fluorescent lamps, lightning, the Aurora borealis, the solar wind, and interstellar nebulae.
In astrophysical plasmas, Debye screening prevents electric fields from affecting the plasma very much, but the existence of charged particles causes the plasma to generate and be affected by magnetic fields.
