Re: Designer Genes C

Does the structure of tRNA come up often other than the fact that it has an anticodon on one end and an amino acid on another? Also, are Lac and Trp operons still relevant? They aren't explicitly stated in the rules, but it also probably falls under mechanisms of gene expression or something.

Re: Designer Genes C

Are different varieties of DNA polymerase tested on at higher levels? I have some info on my note sheet, but am wondering if it's really necessary.
I would probably just differentiate between DNA polymerases I and III and how they work in DNA synthesis.
That's what I have, so nice! Thanks :D

Re: Scheduling Conflicts

Thanks for all the advice, everyone! Sadly, it's not really reasonable to do both since I don't have a car and states is three hours away :-/ I would need someone to transport me very early in the morning on Saturday (after doing a show on Friday) and then leave at around 1:30-2:00 to get back befor...

Scheduling Conflicts

Just got the biggest blow dealt to me - our spring play is taking place the same weekend as states. I'm going to have to choose one over the other, and I don't think I'm going to like the outcome either way. I've been looking forward to both events for months now, but I don't know if it's worth it t...

Re: Missouri 2020

Region VII tournament is February 22nd. I'm impressed, we got it more than six weeks before the event.

Re: Designer Genes C

Do any of you guys have suggestions on how to study Designer Genes? I read the handouts and powerpoints but I quickly forget what the word means. I am not retaining the information. Personally, I really like outlining and taking notes from textbooks. Just reading over what you need to know isn't go...

Placing second at state my first year (even though I almost tripped on the stairs on the way up to the stage)

Re: Designer Genes C

What are your guys' advice for a study event (study strategies, planning, team member collaboration, etc.)? Take practice tests. See what you and your partners strengths are - if you can separate the pages on the test, have both partners working on different parts. It's a lot like studying for a te...

Re: Teams Per School

Most people's experience is that some people drop out once they understand how much work is involved. We usually lose quite a few people before December. Just because people are interested doesn't mean they'll follow through. That being said though, we use three B teams and two C teams. I don't kno...
