    I can see a big question on Nature vs Nurture with use of examples coming up too.
    How would you put that in?

    Nature- Newborn baby studies- ability to have some innate capabilities- crying, sucking, grasping

    Nurture-
    Damaged Brains- Neurones have the ability to change
    Cross-Cultural- Depth perception isn't innate, it must be learnt
    Twin Studies- Differences between identical twins due to environment
    Animal Studies- Monocular Deprivation at critical period (blindness in one eye)

    Anything else you feel I should be needing to add?

    The thing about depth perception, partially it is learnt and partially it is innate. The visual cliff experiment shows this because newborns will not want to crawl over a perceived cliff (look up that experiment), which shows Nature plays a part, however the way in which we interpret depth is partially nurture, as shown by the cross cultural studies where people from 'Carpentered world' (everything at right angles and cuboid buildings etc) are tricked by certain optical illusions, whilst people grow up in more curved structures (certain tribes in Africa) aren't tricked by these illusions.

    I'd have a guess at:
    Heart disease/stroke etc.
    Protein synthesis
    Gene therapy
    Packaging of/modifying proteins?
    Mitosis
    Cell cycle
    Turning genes on and off/transcription factors?
    Melanin? (I'm only saying this because of the reference to pigments in paragraph 5, so kind of a long shot)
    The whole section on cancer
    Adaptation/natural selection
    Speciation
    DNA profiling

    Although if they want to, I'm sure they could make a link to anything (e.g. Naked mole-rats may be affected by global warming, how does CO2 release contribute to global warming, or something equally as tenuous).

    you can use a turtle, but the syllabus says Giant African Snail, so you'd better use the snail
