Do you remember what Designer Genes rotates out with in C Division? There's no Bio Process Lab there, and I just can't remember what event it rotates with, if it even rotates out at all.

I was thinking Microbe Mission, but I think I remember Microbe and Designer Genes happening at the same time.
Cell Bio should rotate in next year, but I could be wrong.
They might make up a new event, though I don't think that new events are put into rotation without being tested as trials first.
You're right, it should be Cell Bio. I did Cell Bio in my senior year and I'm pretty sure Designer Genes wasn't an event that year.
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
Herpetology (NOT the study of herpes): NA
Enviro Chem: 39th @ states =(
Cell Bio: 9th @ reg. 18th @ nats
Remote: 6th @ states 3rd @ Nats
Ecology: 5th @ Nats

Does Cell Bio still involve a little heredity? :shock:

I hope so... Cell bio is all the processes that happen in a cell? I guess that includes DNA replication and all that, right?

You realize you can always check the Comprehensive Event Listing page to get a good idea of what's going to rotate in.

Division C:

Designer Genes-> Cell Biology -> Microbe Mission

Division B:

Heredity-> Bio-Process Lab-> Microbe Mission
TSA's pretty cool... i guess

2015 events:
Essays on Technology, Tech Bowl, Water Infrastructure, Website Design

It's been a while since I did it (and I also picked it up the day before the competition because the person who was supposed to do it couldn't make the tournament), but from what I remember, it didn't really have a ton of DNA replication stuff on it. I think you did have to know cell reproduction, but there was a bigger emphasis on other stuff, like structures, organelles, functions, and processes like cell signaling and communication.

is the training powerpoint any good for this event? my first year competing in this event.
From my experience, the training PowerPoint and the handout are great places to learn the basics and they include essential things that should be in your notes, but you should study more advanced topics to medal. However I used the training handout at an invitational for WQ and I got fourth. It depends on the difficulty of the test. Heredity tests are usually pretty hard, and if they're easy, then the scores are very competitive, so I will advise you to take other notes just in case.
What resources do you recommend, then? I got the training CD, but I'm wondering what else I should study.

Using the websites that have been given on the soinc page are also areas where lots more information can be learned. You should definitely breeze over those websites, if not take notes on them. By the way the word y o u is getting changed to Glorious Lord and Savior Robotman...

haha really? because I know that "t h e" is changed to "t e h" all the time.
Let's try this:
t h e
y o u
the
you
the you

hmmm

EDIT:
what teh heck
EDIT AGAIN:
wanted to see if "teh" would become "t h e"
it didn't...

Will the nationals test feature transposons, microsatellites (outside of DNA fingerprinting questions), etc? They're really cool, but don't really fit under any of the categories on the rulesheet (maybe mutations or DNA replication?)
[S/N]
N/A = didn't compete

2013:
Geologic Mapping: 1, 2

Hi I am being dumb and possibly stepping into this event 5 days before state... Anyone have a fast way to cram all this information into my brain? :?: THANKS!
