    Decide on the range of temperatures to be tested
    • Place a tiny pinch of egg cysts onto a large sheet of white paper
    • Wet the piece of graph paper using a few drops of salt water. Dab the paper onto the white
    sheet to pick up approximately 40 eggs
    • Put the paper with the 40 eggs into the beaker (eggs-side down). After 3 minutes, use a pair of
    forceps to gently remove the paper, making sure that all the egg cysts have washed off into the
    water
    • Repeat for all the temperatures that are to be investigated
    • Incubate the beakers at the appropriate temperatures, controlling exposure to light as far as
    possible
    • The next day count the number of hatched larvae in each of the beakers. Do this for several days
    • Record the number of larvae that have successfully hatched at each temperature

    Umm yeah! That was Dna profiling!
    PCR's still didn't Evn though Dna's amplifyd thru it and used in the gel electrophoresis to create a Profyl ... Relatd

    Ahan, let's just focus on PCR & Gel Elctrophoresis , Ecology too!

    Brine Shrimps came up this year! for 6BIO8!
    They nevr give the same practical for 6BIO8 & 6BIO4!


    Although there's no harm in revising
    how do you know?

    lool They nevr pop up da same practical Q!
    Lyk me all int'l Candidates gave 6bio8 ..nd many r giving unit 4 & 5 too ...
    So the Xaminer's dnt really give the same Q for both the papers .. they'll try a diffrnt practical ...

    But,just to b on da safe syd it wldn't hurt to go thru the practical once

    if that's the case, then gel electrophoresis or PCR is probably coming up. I don't think they've asked either of them.

    thank you! so the brine shrimp practical and the effect on temperature is the same practical?

    Is unit 4 a synpotic paper? I know in the last one it asked some things from AS like structure of cellulose, but I thought it was only unit 5 that was synoptic? and apart from that one AS question the rest seemed to be just unit 4?

    Ahh well, the good thing about being a failure and having to resit all your AS and A2 exams means you're pretty clued up for synoptic stuff I guess :P

    How does HIV stimulate the immune system to produce antibody molecules?

    The mark scheme says that antibody on B-lymphocytes bind to antigens acting as lables allowing phagocytes to recognise and destroy the cell..

    Whats confusing is does phagocyte need a APC to be activated? and how comes B cell comes first than T cell?

    WTF, i confidently said it doesnt to myself, I swear HIV bind tto t-helper cells and replicates.....

    It doesnt stimulate it to produce antibody molecules am confused

    I have that question:

    the MS is just asking what is the B-cell response.

    - recognition of foreign antigen
    - b cell proliferation (divides by mitosis)
    - to produce plasma cells and memory cells
    - plasma cells produce specific antibodies
    - clonal selection

    HIV does infect t-helper cells, but remember there are probably BILLIONS of t-helper cells in your blood. Not all of them will be infected.

    It does produce antibodies. EVERY foreign antigen leads to a production of antibodies.

    HIV +ve people are identified as HIV +ve by looking for presence of HIV antibodies in their blood.

    Likelyhood will be PCR then. Also I think there'll be a time of death question as there was no time of death question last time, maybe an explanation of rigor mortis?
