Men Must Increase Gene Expression On Their Lone X-Chromosome To Match The Two X's Possessed By Women - http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/article...
There was research done at Brown University where there was newly understood activity of a protein complex that, like a genetic power tool, gives enzymes on the X-chromosome an extra boost to increase gene expression. The process is described in the March 2, 2011, issue of the journal Nature. - Ayan Dirir
This week has been hectic but I feel better after handing in my practical book. I still need to do a lot of work on my microbiology essay though so I might come in this weekend. I am looking forward to next week when our timetables are lighter and I dont have to worry about the essay. I still have to do alot of presentations though. - Ayan Dirir

This week has been busy as usual but I have done quite a bit of work so far.However I still need to practise my exam essay question for #MB1031 and start the microbiology essay. I am kind of glad we are finishing microbiology module next week and starting on physiology. I hope physiology is interesting. - Ayan Dirir
I found that this week has gone by really fast again, right now I am doing my write up for the microbiology practical.I still havent finished my scientific report for #MB1031 which I need to have a draft ready for by tomorrow. However I am really enjoying the lecture and practicals on genes and medicine so far its been really interesting. - Ayan Dirir

Scientist may have found a new class of antibiotics - Ayan Dirir
This week has gone really fast,I have enjoyed most of it though especially the practicals I think this semesters modules are more interesting than last semester. However I am dissapointed that I didnt go to the careers talk it sounded very useful. I still havent finished the excell work for BS1011 so I must do that. - Ayan Dirir
UM Researchers Identify New Gene Causing Blindness - http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/article...
Scientist have found a new gene that causes blindness.I think this is kind of related to genes and medicine course. - Ayan Dirir
My week has been good so far, I really enjoyed the practicals so far especially the microbiology practical. I liked the fact we were looking at live bacteria under the microscope. I think thay both the microbiology practical and lectures have really taught me how science is applied in the real world and it seems that there are lots of different careers to go into by having a microbiology degree. - Ayan Dirir
Todays lecture on catabolism was interesting I thougth.
Why was it interesting? - Michael Steele
Finally finished my lab report I thought it was quite difficult.
we got through it in the end :D - Ismahane Messahel
Todays lecture was nice i thought.
I liked the bingo game we played after todays lecture.
Which module? - Dr Alan Cann
Yeah, I agree. It was a nice way to end the series of lectures on proteins. - Hamdi Hussain
Found this web page on google reader its about electonegativity and bonding which is what we are currently learning in ch1070.
The group presentations were interesting
I thought we did quite well! Well done on your section :) - Zoe Collard
Yeah everyone did really well considering we didn't practice that much. - Ayan Dirir
I thought yesterdays lecture on biochemistry was really nice.
Really enjoyed the lecture on genetic fingerprinting i thought it was very informative but at the same time fun.
How much information can you get from a lecturer when it comes to writing essays?
Could you explain what you mean please? - Dr Alan Cann
If you ask a direct question relating to an essay will they answer or do you have to do the research on your own? - Ayan Dirir
If there is something you're not clear about we certainly hope you will ask the people who teach you, but when it comes to writing an essay, you need to work independently. - Dr Alan Cann
Just finished the presentation I thought the feedback comments were really useful.
Fwd: Found this on google reader it might be useful for the essay on genomes http://www.medterms.com/script... (via http://friendfeed.com/ayandir...)
Todays chemistry lecture was interesting.
How? Explain? - Dr Alan Cann
Mostly A-Level don't you think ? - Bashir Mohamed
well for people like myself... who haven't done a-level chemistry... every chemistry lecture brings me more and more new information, for some it's a way to refresh their a-level knowledge... for me its a way to catch up with everyone else =) i'm glad this chemistry module is in place. - Novpreet Rainer
It is related to A levels but we are learning these things in more depth - Jigishu Ahmed
It really depends on how much you were taught at A Level... and how much extra work you did for the subject. - Pritesh Mistry
Found this on google reader it might be useful for the essay on genomes http://www.medterms.com/script...
use the 'share with note' and put a comment in the note to make sure this counts for your Google Reader activity - a module code would be good too! - Dr Jo Badge
The nobel prize website is very good source for the group presentation it tells you about the prize winners and the research as well .http://nobelprize.org/
Agreed - please share a link though, that's much more useful. - Dr Alan Cann
