    Does anyone know of any websites with practice questions? (not the ocr past papers)

    ignore, forgot to read (not the ocr past papers)

    Rep:
    Can someone help in where they got the answers on the mark scheme
    It is question 2b(ii) on June 2010 paper
    Thank you

    hi sure ok lets start

    PCR requires dna polymerase, a primer etc
    only forms one new strand

    Dna replicatio:semi-conservative..2 new starnds are formed..RNA polymerase is used..i think ...hm not sure

    conservation = is to maintain biodiversity and help to look after species in a (habitat/area) and it is better than preservation as they are looked after in their own environment
    advatages- no hunting , no toursts throwing litters on the floor, maintains biodiversity, can be used for education to teach people, animals are taken care and looked after so reduces susceptiability to diseases and are well supplied with food.

    disadvantages= expensive, inbreeding , competition for food are resources with other species

    IS IT REALLY? I THOUGHT I WOULD GET IT WRONG..HAVENT COME ACROSS DIFERENCES... and is rna polymerase used in dna replication? :/

    describe on example of primamry succession resultin in a climax community
    an example is where the plants grow near the beach but in the sand dunes and they can resist water spray, nutrients and so they keep spreading to larger sand done and provides stability.
    one question for this do we need to learn all the plant names???

    Nope..you have to say this
    -uncolonised area
    pioneer community grows
    larger plants succed smaller ones
    until a climax community is reached

    no rna polymerase is not used for dna replication , dna replication uses enzyme DNA POLymerase remember dont make that mistake

    yes you do get 3 marks cause the marks are
    1) primers are added so reaction can proceed
    2) heating and cooling for strands to separate and anneal
    3) replicates only dna sequence not entire chromosome

    but you got the marks for the DNA

    What is the advantage for conjugation (2)
    Congujagation allows bacteria to exhange DNA whic causes them to spread advantageous alle quicker, and hence become resistant tocertian antibiotics etc

    yes but you forgot the key word plasmid its the plasmid which causes the antibiotic resisatance

    describe the role of the brain and nervous system in the co-ordination of muscular movement;
    role of brain that control the movement and posture is the cerebellum and the role of the cerebellum is to control the posture and movement. The nervous system consitsts of the spinal cord and brain with the neurones such as motor/relay and sensory neurones. so the sensory receptors detects change in movement and sends the nerves from the neurones all the way to the brain to the cerebellum so that the brain has the information and helps the movement of the joint/bones. also there is the peripheral system where the autonomic system has sympahteic and parasymphateic and so parasymphateic is when you are relaxed it releases noradrenaline when it attaches with the ganglion and symohateic acteylcholine. this helps to cause movement of bone and the acetylcholine is then used for the movement of joint which the ca2+ released from the sacroplasmic reticulum depolarization e.t.c
