    Hi,
    Ok so we are having an introductory week at college, and we were in groups we were told that we were to make presentations about a certain topic which we would be given to show the class about the topic. We were given "Enzyme Action" and I wasn't sure how to go about this..

    We have just finished GCSE's so nothing too complicated its for AS Biology (duh..). What should I talk about and is there any particularly useful diagrams to include??

    Thanks!

    What if you lost your key? Can you get another cut?

    If you lose the key, then it's game over I'm afraid. Locksmiths have never been up for the job..

    I would suggest you go on a website which is for AS level bio and take note of the key topics on enzymes and plan your presentation around that

    I know the feeling. If only the stick was jammed in the keyhole, you could have fixed the problem by throwing hundreds of keys at the thing.

    Sad times.

    Next year the metamorphosis will begin, changing what we take in from anything and everything to just what's immediately need :yep:

    I'm afraid we, as the now together TSR medics, will evolve down different evolutionary paths under the influence of allopatric speciation as we diverge geographically to our respective dumping grounds.

    Even after we finish the degree there's no guaruntee we'll be compatible again. Even if we are still the same species of academic what's to say we'll ever be one again? Sympatric speciation may well be the killing blow :sad:

    I really need to stop :yeah:
