Chapter 11 Blog: Nucelic Acid Structure, DNA Replicaiton, and Chromosome Structure (Suma)

Page history last edited by Suma Gondi 13 years, 6 months ago

In the first section of this page, you will write a daily summary of that day's class.  For example in  your chapter 2 blog, your first entry should be titled 9/3/10.  You should then write a one or two paragraph summary of that day's lecture, outlining the major points.  In the second section, you are required to add two items (link to a website, video, animation, student-created slide show, student-created PowerPoint presentation) and one journal article pertaining to a topic in this chapter.  A one-paragraph summary must accompany each item describing the main idea and how it applies to the lecture topic.  Please see the PBWorks help guide for assistance embedding video and other items directly in the page.  I will also produce a how-to video on using tables to wrap text around items and other useful tips.  Please see the syllabus for organization and grading details.


A.  Daily Blog



B.  Useful Materials


1) http://www.phschool.com/science/biology_place/biocoach/dnarep/enzymes.html

This site has a quiz which rests you on the different enzymes used in DNA replication- I know I always get confused about which order they occur in so this could be a useful study tool.


2)  http://users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.ultranet/BiologyPages/D/DNAReplication.html

This website talks about DNA replication, mentioning the proteins, the semiconservative model.


3)  Telomeres in the brain cortex of depressive patients:  This PubMed article talks about a study done on whether the size of telomeres different in the brain cells of people with depression.
