Primary Memory

Random Access Memory (RAM) - is a type of volatile memory that is stores information on an integrated circuit which hold the data mainly when the program is being executed by the CPU. As it is volatile in nature so it can't store data permanently.

Read Only Memory (ROM) - a non-volatile memory chip in which data are stored permanently, and can not be altered by the programmer.

Secondary Memory

A storage, which suppliments the main memory of a computer. Often refferred to as secondary storage, this section of computer's memory is non-volatile and has low cost per bit stored, but it generally has an operating speed far slower than that of the primary storage.

Cache Memory

A small high speed memory, which is used to increase the speed of processing by making current programs and data available to the CPU at a rapid rate.

Genetically Modified Food or Crops

Genetic Modification Genetic modification refers to techniques used to manipulate the genetic composition of an organism by adding specific useful genes. A gene is a sequence of DNA that contains information that determines a particular characteristic/trait. All organisms have DNA (genes). Genes are located in chromosomes. Genes are units of inheritance that are passed from one generation to the next and provide instructions for development and function of the organism. Crops that are developed through genetic modification are referred to as genetically modified (GM) crops, transgenic crops or genetically engineered (GE) crops. Over the last 30 years, the field of genetic engineering has developed rapidly due to the greater understanding of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) as the chemical double helix code from which genes are made. The term genetic engineering is used to describe the process by which the genetic makeup of an organism can be altered using “recombinant DNA technology.” This ...
