    My bad, dunno how I saw it as part of group 6. So the element is always in its standard state, then? And thanks for the reply.
    Yup, all halogens are always diatomic, as are H2, O2 and N2, when they are in their normal states.

    What? Where did you get that figure from, it's huge! :eek:
    That number is probably incorrect. It's possibly higher, around the 70-80% mark.

    Painfully!

    There's a 4th specimen, and a 5th from your teacher - January 2011.

    Also all the old spec papers have some very similar questions!

    At the moment I'm learning it all from my text book.

    Yeah, but only one side of the helix is used in DNA replication, so only look at one side.

    Probably because it's not on the internet - only teachers have it. It's our mock for next week :/

    But we're not talking about replication, we're talking about amino acid codons.

    I know you're probably right, but I still don't understand it.

    By the triplet code I understood that 3 bases code for a single amino acid, and you read the bases off the DNA in a kind of L shape.

    Because only one side of the base is actually used to make the amino acids.

    No, well i'm not sure yet I need to see what the universities I want to apply to offer deferred entry and if I could pull out my application if I did get accepted but changed my mind.

    Always wondered about this too... thanks for clearing it up guys!

    I'm just revising Unit 1 before the exams. Unit 2 is what I'll be doing for ages the weekend before the week I have it.
