How does Well's present religion in the 'War of the Worlds' novel and what is the significance of this?
Darwinism is used to portray the scientific point of view in the novel. Darwin was a scientist in the 19th Century and put forward the theory of Natural Selection of The Species in his 1859 book 'Origin of the Species'. His theory was based upon the 'Survival of the Fittest' which suggested of all the plants and animals, those with the best 'design' would out-compete or survive those of weaker designs. Darwin was making a point that those animals and plants that are stronger would be able to survive changing environmental conditions. He also suggested the stronger species, as predators could prey upon weaker species.

There are different types of water sources which are parts of the water system. These different sources of water are sub systems of the broader water system. They are acting as parts of the system and are interconnected and interdependent. Survival, availability and function of one water source depends upon other. They have set of relationships. One also has to keep in mind that people cannot act in vacuum. Each and every behaviour, interaction, activities and thought of the people are influenced by the social system.

In the novel, the nameless Time Traveler rides in a time machine to the year 802,700, only to find that this world deep into the future looks nothing like the world he once knew. While this world is completely alien to him and to the reader, it does resemble contemporary views of the Time Traveler's old world, aspects of biological processes that Darwin hypothesized. After viewing both an 'upper-world' of small, unintimidating beings and then a completely different nocturnal ape-like creature below, the Time Traveler realizes that both are descendants of humans.

Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay or ELISA as it is more commonly known is an enzyme immunoassay (EIA), which is one of the most widely used applications of monoclonal antibodies.
There are many variable techniques for ELISA, indirect, sandwich, and competitive are described below: An indirect EIA, the method that was used for the experiment carried out, can be used to detect specific antibodies in an antibody mixture, for example. This technique can be used to check if an individual is infected with HIV or is exposed to tuberculosis by testing their serum for presence of antibodies. In this case the desired antigen is attached to the well surface, and is carried out as follows: A specific primary antibody (or antibody mixture)
