Re: 2020 National Tournament: North Carolina State University

Is there any way we can get NSO to not recycle this year's events? Yeah, I agree that events should not be recycled; in my opinion, it seems unfair to teams that may build schedules and select competitors based on the cycle of the rules, and also, this will probably just lead to a more boring 2021 ...

Re: Designer Genes C

You're right that ribosomes can't read RNA in the 3' to 5' direction, but you're wrong about the idea that RNA runs from 3' to 5'. The DNA is read by the RNA polymerase from 3' to 5' so the RNA is built from 5' to 3'. This way, it matches the sense (coding) strand instead of the antisense strand th...

Will we need to know how to distinguish different types of skin cancers by their histology.

Re: Designer Genes C

Long time no see. When converting a DNA sequence to protein are these the following steps? 1. Convert DNA (5'-3') to mRNA (3'-5') 2. Flip mRNA (3'-5') to mRNA (5'-3') 3. Use codon table to convert RNA (5'-3') to protein. I did a test where the answer key skipped the 2nd step, but I'm pretty sure th...

Re: Swap Meet

Hey guys,

Would anyone be willing science merch or anything with “Science Olympiad” on them? Hats, t-shirts, etc. (ascioly?)
or maybe stuff that you put on your desk, like a nice geode, Drinking bird, etc.

Thanks,
FarmerJoe279
