Re: What Journals are wisest to follow?

So you are just saying to search for articles on databases like PubMed or Scholars Portal, correct? Seems like a lot easier to follow then going through journals. How many times should I be looking for new articles? Every month/every week? I am not sure at what speed science articles are actually be...

What Journals are wisest to follow?

Hello everyone, I am a student in University, therefore I do have access to multiple sources of articles. But the problem is that it is an overwhelming amount of research sources. I am currently studying Biotechnology (my interest), but I am interested as well in cell signalling (particularly as it ...

What is important for a job Applied Industry (Biotechnology)

Hi there everyone, and happy holidays. So I was wondering if we could discuss this or if someone could confirm this. I have heard from quite a few people that when you transition from university into industry a lot of the time people depend on just the general information of what they studied in sch...

Biology journals...

Hi Everyone, I was intending to begin reading more journal articles that I do now, which is only when I am writing up reports. I am finishing my second year of undergrad and I want to truly do well in these last final years and begin to develop some real research type skills which include reading ar...

Re: blood pressure

goreboy8, we are trying to make you use your logic. Blood pressure is not different from any other type of pressure, which is simply the force/area (think basic physics). Now what happens when a pipe full of water at high pressure bursts? the same thing happens to a large enough cut on your body. Li...

Re: Career Advice

I was going to recommend the same thing. If you can or are interested in the business side of science, why not try to find a graduate degree/program that is tailored towards giving you some business or managerial expertise. I know of this one program at my University which is tailored to the Biotech...

ha ha, thats alright because your method for revision is something I always did. Actually I would usually only go through certain things once and hardly ever again until a test, but that was because I used to constantly right out notes. with your method, you save time by not writing but keep going o...

Re: Note Taking in Biology

I used to take notes form books, but it's very time consuming and I find time is better spent reading the book and maybe sticking post-its on the side of the pages of helpful sections. If it's a library book I can't have for long, I'll photocopy the relevent pages and highlight what's important. Ag...

Ok it is me again, I just wanted to relay that I finally got the values to somehow equate perfectly. I think I mixed up the conversion ratios for time and volume. I do have one more question for this lab. When I do obtain the Q10 values for both plant and animal, I get values that are really close t...

Q10, temperature coefficient

Hi, I am trying to calculate the temperature coefficient or Q10 for a cellular respiration experiment that I performed in my physiology lab using a manometer system. Everything seems to be fine in my results except for the Q10 which I keep getting (for both organisms I studied) below 1.0. I know tha...
