    Liverpool has always been my favourite, so it was the obvious first choice. I didn't want to full on reject the offer from RVC, because that seemed ridiculous considering how hard it is to only get one offer for Veterinary Science. So, even though I can't actually go there, I had nothing to lose by putting it as my insurance. Also, RVC have been known to accept people with less than the required grades, so it was worth a shot. I know I'll be phoning them both up on results day, begging them to take me :p:
    Ah ok! Good luck

    Guys, the animation on this on the sliding filament theory is really useful, thought i'd share it with you
    Thanks. That's helped me with muscle filaments.

    what do you guys think is it better to...stay up untill 2am then sleep untill I have to leave for the exam or sleep early like 11:30 then wake up at like 5:30/6 then do a little bit of revision

    I'm no expert but I'd say wake up early.
    And make sure you have a good breakfast :yep: I recommend coffee, cereal of some sort (or maybe even porridge whatever floats your boat) and a banana


    I've got so much to do and I'm getting distracted by springwatch.. so I think I'll be up at 5 too!

    Distracted by Springwatch? There's a first :p:

    I'm "watching" Brazil and North Korea, surprisingly not as many vuvuzelas...

    It alters the shape of protein molecules, hence activating them. It makes them a better fit for the enzyme's active site. It is a secondary messenger.

    Ah, easy! I revised this first thing last Monday morning and haven't forgotten it!

    Biological species concept was basically the first theory that scientists came up with and it was just to study the reproductive behaviours of organisms, as the definition of a species is a group of similar organisms who can reproduce to make fertile offspring. Immediately there's problems with this.

    1. What if it's extinct? What do you do then?
    2. What about bacteria? That reproduces asexually by binary fission... it never reproduces with anything else
    3. Er, who wants to breed a human and a chimp to see if they're truly different??? Technical term: ethical issue!!

    So the scientists came up with the phylogenetic species concept, which is the study of the relatives, or evolutionary history, of the organism.

    All organisms have a common ancestor, so the more closely related they are to that, the more recently their common ancestor will be.

    The definition of phylogenetics is the study of what's related to what and how closely. So if something's really different to something else, it's a new species. If it's similar, chances are it's the same species.

    ... Chances are. It may not be. But how do you know? There is not cut-off point to exactly how different each species must be. Chimps and humans share 94% of DNA, yet we're different species. Problemo.

    I have finished reading through all of chuck111's notes

    and now for a break and then i am gonna go over the notes and probably look over the specimen. probably gonna get up early in the morning for quick read again.

    can't wait for this time tomorrow when its all over!!

    I will cry with EXCITEMENT if loads on genetic engineering comes up. Everyone pray that loads on DNA PCR and muscle contraction comes up.

    If it helps, meiosis 1 is the same as meiosis 2, except for meiosis 2 you replace the word "chromosome" with "chromatid".

    wow thats really good

    so jsut to clarify, when the myosin heads bind to the actin ADP + Pi is released as the crossbridge is formed and as they are stable in this form ATP is required to break the cross brdige???

    Praying for muscle contraction, transcription/translation and inheritance crosses.



    ...What the everloving fluff is PCR.

    Oh no hang on is that ADP into ATP with P coming from phosphocreatine?
