    Oh my god :lol:

    I'll start

    What are the stages of DNA fingerprinting?
    Fine then

    Okay so first you want to extract a DNA sample from some human tissue like blood...
    Then you want to use some restriction enzymes to cut up the DNA strand into fragments...
    THEN you will separate your DNA fragments using electrophoresis...
    Finally you will use a radioactive probe to visualise the DNA pattern and you can then compare this pattern to other DNA fingerprints and therefore conclude whether two DNA samples belong to the same person.

    AND FOR THAT I'M GOING TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE KIDNEYS

    Explain in detail the three stages that take place in the kidneys

    Yeah, you're right

    Kidneys... Hmmm... I'm gonna sound stupid now..

    Does that monitor water content? Or urine? Or both?

    I'm gonna fail biology :rofl:

    Controls water concentration in the blood, and glucose levels also gets rid of urea from the blood...nice (Y)

    Aah, so the pituitary gland releases the hormone which regulates the softness of the intestines which controls how much it absorbs?

    almost the hormone it releases is called ADH and it increases the permeability of the renal tubes, so that it re-absorbs more water back into the blood-stream after going through the kidneys, so say you are really hydrated ADH is not released as much so the renal tubes aren't as permeable therefore more water goes into the bladder and not reabsorbed into the renal vein...so that's why you need to go to the toilet more...grim..

    yay plants! ¬¬
    Increased light intensity makes the stomata open up so transpiration increases and an increase in temperature makes the water molecules move more which therefore increases the rate of transpiration

    hmm explain what happens during an asthma attack?

    Airways constrict, making it difficult to breathe linings inflame... Some liquid build up! Can't breathe :zomg:

    They have a large surface area
    ermmm good blood supply?
    and there's another one...oghikfnr
    permeable surface!

    Tinning - stops microbes getting in
    Freezer/Cooling - temp too low to reproduce
    Salt - draws water out of them
    Dried containers? - Like no humidity to reproduce

    Magnesium - To make chlorophyll for photosythesis
    Nitrogen - To make amino acids that are converted into proteins for growth and repair
    Phosphates- To make DNA for growth
    Potassium - something to do with flower + fruit growth and also enzymes for respiration

    advantages and disadvantages of hydroponics?

    Advantages:
    Easy to control nutrients
    Smaller space?

    Disadvantage:
    Lots of nutrients needed
    No soil to anchor roots in

    :zomg::zomg:

    So day 1 lining breaks away and then FSH is released from brain which signals to the ovaries for an egg to ripen and also makes oestrogen to start being released from ovaries, oestrogen makes lining of womb build up again, then on day 14 LH is released from brain which signals for an egg to be released from the ovaries, oestrogen levels fall and now progesterone is released from ovaries which keeps the lining in place then after no fertilisation progesterone stops being released so lining breaks away at day 1 again.....PHEW

    okay so how to amoebas control water content in their cytoplasm?

    10 mark section at the end. No one question will be ten marks though.

    Six markers...

    Also for disadvantages you could say that electricity is being used
    Advantage: better control of disease
    you can grow crops in places where there's no fertile soil using hydroponics and you are right you can fit many plants in a smaller space...Look at some mark scheemes just in case...I don't think they really consider smaller space much..even thoguh books do

    pretty much.. :P

    barley seeds sprout turning starch on the seeds into sugar, then you add hops to give flavour, then you mix it with yeast and let them respire to they reproduce and stuff then you seal fermenter and warm it so yeaast can respire anaerobically and produce ethanl and CO2, then you clarify it adding chemicals that settle the yeast....then you pasteurise beer by heating to 70 degrees for 15 secs to kill micro-organisms then you let it cool down, then you just bottle it

    Describe the effect light intensity has on rate of photosynthesis?
