Need some ideas for this essay.

So far I have...

+ Nuclei contain nuclear pores to allow mRNA to move into the cytoplasm for translation to be carried out.
+ Chloroplasts have the thylkoids directly next to the stroma so that the NADPH and ATP can easily get from the LDR to the LIDR.
+ Rough ER has ribosomes on it's surface so that the proteins can easily be transported after they have been made. (Rough ER is also continuous with nuclei membrane).

I need like 2 more ideas. Thanks

organelles have a large surface area so reactions can occur at a fast rate for example the mitochondria. this feature enables it to produce many ATP molecules required for metabloc reactions

Why not consider mitochondria, with the inner mitochondrial membrane which has F1 particles, and specific enzymatic machinery and molecular complexes involved in oxidative phosphorylaton? Or the intricate Golgi apparatus involved in protein packaging and release in vesicles, whose cis and trans faces have a role in the functioning? Or the cilia and the flagella, both motile, but with amazing differences in their structure?

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (554)

Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (674)

Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (330)

I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (74)
