Biology Research Project Topics and Materials
Biology is a branch of science that studies all life forms i.e. living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical processes that occur within these organisms, molecular interactions, physiological-mechanisms, stages of development and growth and process of evolution.
Biology Research Project Topics
|01||Topic: The occurrence of urinary tract infections in patients attending federal medical centres in a Nigerian state
This project is to determine the rate of UTI infections among federal health centre patients in a named Nigerian state and also determines the common organisms that cause these infections among these patients. This project will help in choosing which antimicrobial or ant parasitic drug would be most suitable for patients in that Nigerian state.
|02||Topic: The effect of vitamin C on tetracycline induced testicular toxicity in male albino Wistar rats
Tetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used in the clinical treatment of bacterial infections. It is known to cause several biochemical dysfunctions and is suspected to affect the testes of humans and animals. This study evaluates the spermatozoic effect of tetracycline in male Wistar rats and the chemo-protective effect of vitamin c.
|03||Topic: Investigating the anti-fertility effect of inhaled Cannabis saltiva (marijuana) on male albino Wistar rats
The consumption of marijuana among males has increased over the years. It is therefore important to understand its mechanism of action, its effect on the testes and if it has an impact on infertility among males. This study will determine the connection between infertility in males and marijuana and also, at what concentration does marijuana become spermatotoxic.
|04||Topic: The nutritional benefits of Plant milk; nutritional composition of soya bean
This project aims to determine; the chemical and physical properties of soya bean milk, the effect of pasteurization on soya bean milk and the nutritional composition of soya bean milk.
|05||Topic: Toxicity of calabash Clay (Nzu) and its effect on pregnancy in female Albino Wistar rats
Calabash clay (Nzu) is a chalk-like sandy material consumed by pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers as a cure for morning sickness. This study aims at evaluating; the possible toxicity of calabash clay and its effect on pregnant Wistar rats.
|06||Topic: Analyzing the gender difference in haemoglobin levels in adults
Men and women have different mean haemoglobin levels in their blood. A study has shown that women have a hemoglobin mean level at about 12% lower than men. This study would determine; the mechanism by which haemoglobin is formed in adult males and females, the cause for the difference in concentration of hemoglobin in both adult gender and consequences this difference has on each gender.
|07||Topic: Controlling pests with pesticides; are humans at risk by consuming crops grown with pesticides?
This study aims at determining; the mechanism by which pesticides act, the possibility of having residual chemicals from the pesticides on the plants and the effect of consuming such crops by humans.
|08||Topic: Phytochemical screening of Vernonia amygdalina (bitter leaf) and the effect of its aqueous leaf extract on the blood glucose level of Alloxan-induced diabetic male albino Wistar rats.
Diabetes is a major disorder of carbohydrates, proteins and lipid metabolism. This study determines the phytochemical properties of bitter leaf. It also evaluates the effect of orally administered aqueous leaf extract of Vernonia amygdalina on serum glucose and lipid profile of rats induced with diabetes.
|09||Topic: In-vitro study on the aqueous leaf extract of Azadirachta Indica (Neem leaf); an in-depth study on its antibacterial effect on methicillin-sensitive and resistant Staphylococcus aureus
This study determines if the extract of Neem leaf has any antibacterial properties that could terminate the growth of methicillin-sensitive and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It also compares the anti-staphylococcal properties of Neem leaf extract with oxacillin and mupirocin.
|10||Topic: Effects of drying on the nutritional composition of Moringa oleifera leaves
This study aims at determining the effect of different drying techniques on the proximate and other nutritional composition of Moringa oleifera leaves sourced from two eastern Nigerian states.
|11||Topic: Investigating the repellent activities of the extract of Ocimum basilicum (sweet basil) against Aedes aegypti (yellow fever mosquito) on Rabbit Skin
This project evaluates the repellent activity, the effectiveness and the concentration of Ocimum basilicum that offer complete protection against mosquito bite on the skin of rabbits.
|12||Topic: Nutrition, an important factor in immune function?
This study will analyze the effect of nutritional elements on the immune system of humans.
|13||Topic: Investigating the causes and effects of Diarrhea among children attending a federal hospital in a state within Nigeria
This study aims to; examine the causes of diarrhea in children attending a federal hospital in a state within Nigeria and to suggest solutions to its effects.
|14||Topic: Investigating the presence of biological pathogens on the door handles of campus shuttles in a federal university within Nigeria
The spread of diseases through hand contact has been a major concern in our society. This is because our hands are always in contact with surfaces that are potential carriers of these pathogens. This project aims at isolating and identifying microorganisms on the door handles of campus shuttles in a federal university within Nigeria.
|15||Topic: An investigation into the existence of microbial contamination in raw milk from a dairy farm
This project is aimed at isolating and identifying microorganisms that contaminate raw milk.
