Biochemistry, The Structures For Life

This week we began learning about Biological Molecules and how they form together and how they bond. The plants we are growing have finally flowered so we can begin breeding them to try and get specific results. I believe that the class decided on attempting to make the tallest plant possible, by breeding only exceptionally […]

Most of these where mock populations but we did talk about how sickle-cell anemia and malaria is related. The main concept is that if you are heterozygous for sickle-cell anemia you have an advantage when fighting off malaria, heteroygous simply means […]
