Hola guys! Yeah so far I'm not loving the course as much as higher either, but probably because all we've really been doing so far is experimental techniques and lab practices. I've realised we're back to school in two weeks or so and I still have no idea what I want to do for my investigation, I think I was meant to have done background research by now :/ Does anybody know what they're doing? Or have any general ideas?

My idea is to use digestive enzymes on plants and extract the DNA and use electrophoresis- but I have no idea if I will be allowed to do that. If not I really have no idea what I will be doing for my investigation.

And in my school we are doing both Unit 1 and Unit 2 at the same time since we have two teachers- I am liking Unit 1 but not so much Unit 2- but Unit 2 is filled with the stuff that directed me to taking Higher Human last year.

I suppose it will depend on your school's budget. I'm using the Gel electrophoresis method off of NCBE to look at plant Phylogeny and my teacher's cool with it. The only trouble is finding a Uni that might be willing to rent use of a PCR machine for a price within budget, Aberdeen Medical Institute has a qPCR facility but the £25/plate charge is outwith that. Would anyone have any recommendations?

Your lucky you have that to go on.
I have to go to college to do AH Bio, and so far we have had 3 periods of work since school went back. We need to do our investigations at our schools, in our own time. Most of us also did the old Higher and this is the new advanced higher.
I dont have a clue about what to do for my investigation.
I was thinking something along the lines of Contamination of raw meats (or herbs and spices) – what dowe actually put in our food?Different kinds of water (distilled, salt, freshwater) onkeratin fibres found in hair.The effect of frequent washing or infrequent washing onkeratin fibres in hair. Any ideas, or other options.

Yea i'm currently using that as thats all there is published for revision material, also you need to apply that information and the best way advised by my teacher is PastPaper questions.

this would be a reasonable investigation if you look at different soil types, moisture content, pH etc
