Prove You're the Best Biologist!


Do you think you have true potential as a biologist? If so, then this game will be the perfect opportunity to showcase your expertise! Suited for students of all levels, from GCSE to A Level to IB to... every other qualification out there!



The rules are simple:
  1. Answer the question in the post directly before your own
  2. Ask a new question for the next poster
  3. If you do not answer the question directly before you, you won't get a point

If you answer a question correctly, you will gain +1 point. Points will be collected on the leader-board and all answers will be verified by Google

Question 1: how do hot temperatures denature enzymes?
Great game!

Answer: because they change/break the bonds in the protein.

Answer: glycosidic and hydrogen bonding.

Question: what is an enzyme?
There are not only glycosidic bonds and hydrogen bonds - there is also bonding between carbon and hydrogen - the answer should be covalent bonding (which includes glycosidic bonds), sorry to be pedantic.

Answer : An operon is the section of DNA that an oppressor binds to.
Question : Why is/should an open flame kept nearby when inoculating culture media with a microorganism?

Answer: To prevent airborne microbes from coming in contact with the culture you're working on the surface.

flow in opposite directions (next to each other) making sure there's always a high conc. gradient
How do pathogens become resistant to antibotics

A: Bacteria mutate rapidly due to poor DNA replication error detection (meaning mutations can occur every thousand bases or so)-so mutations can occur rapidly that change the target proteins to not respond to targets anymore.

(additionally some gain of function mutations can produce enzymes like beta-lactamases which degrade drugs like penicillin)


Q: What is the difference between behavioural and genomic imprinting?

Q: What is the difference between behavioural and genomic imprinting?
Forgive me (and please tell me) if I'm wrong, I had to research this. Behavioural imprinting is when an organism is exposed to an object in early life, becoming attached to it, whereas genomic imprinting is a type of epigenetic change where either the mother or father's copy of a gene is silenced, giving the offspring the remaining trait.

Q: What are the components needed for PCR?

Any - encouraging research is good! Just make sure it's fair - so the answer to your question can be found through a Google search
