    you too! i just hope newcastle will accept me with ABB as I'm pretty doubtful of my A in bio haha
    That's what I'm hoping, that i'll get accepted to my first choice with ABB instead of the AAB they asked for.

    Anyone care to explain climactic climax to me? The book explains it awfully and it doesn't properly differentiate between that and climax community

    In f214, I'm totally confused by the whole Nerves topic. I've always thought sodium potassium pumps WERE the voltage gated channels?
    So are there:
    (1) sodium potassium pumps
    (2) voltage gated channels for Na+
    (3) voltage gated channels for K+
    Or are they all the same thing?
    Someone help >.<

    They're not quite the same. There are sodium potassium pumps which actively pump the ions to cause the resting potential. There are voltage gated channels for Na+ and voltage gated channels for K+ which are involved during action potentials.
    There are also gated sodium channels at sensory receptors which you can think of like "stimulus-gated". E.g. on your skin, when you touch something, those channels open to cause a small depolarisation and eventually, once the threshold level is exceeded, the voltage gated channels open to generate an action potential.

    Anyone going for that elusive A* in Bio, or just me? Seems pretty unlikely cuz' of F215!

    Also, does anyone have the F214 paper from June 2014?

    F215 grade boundaries are pretty low though !!! So still achievable

    Just uber scared with F215 because a week ago our class and our teacherwent over a few f215 papers and we were all like, uhhh .-.

    So I'm really scared because it's the least revised section that I've done ;___; and we've only recently finished it...

    Thought I'd post this here for everyone to see, this is a website on all the past papers SEPARATED into topics. So all respiration exam questions, all photosynthesis questions, homeostasis, etc...

    Really useful I think...

    I say make use of this really useful resource!!!

    THANK YOU! This makes so much sense now. You're a life saver.

    Can someone explain the BAC method for sequencing a genome please ? thank you


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    A whole genome is cut using restriction enzymes
    Fragments placed into bacterial artificial chromosomes (man made plasmids)
    BACs then placed into bacteria, each bacteria contains a BAC with a different DNA fragment
    Bacteria divides and produces colonies, all the colonies together make the genomic DNA library
    DNA extracted from bacterial colonies using same restriction enzymes producing overlapping strands of DNA
    Sequenced by chain termination method and put into oder

    If you limit light intensity - what happens to the amount of TP in the calvin cycle?

    RuBP decreases (TP isn't converted to RuBP)
    GP increases (as remaining RuBP is still carboxylated)

    So TP accumulates? Even though GP can't be converted to TP?
