Science as a Human Endeavour
This post will go through some things to look into for SHE for QCE Biology.
4.1.7 – Science as a Human Endeavour (SHE)
- SHE subject matter will not be assessed on the external examination but could be used in the development of claims and research questions for the research investigation.Some Things to Look Into For SHE
- Bioinformatics: Bioinformatics can be used to analyse the relationships in biological data, such as amino acid sequences or nucleotide sequences (e.g. the Human Genome Project).
This is a TED Talk intoducing bioinformatics and looking at its applications.
DNA Sequencing and Diseases
- A $1000 genome: Low-cost genome sequencing can be used to enable people to identify whether they have gene variants associated with genetic diseases.
This video goes through how DNA sequencing can be used to diagnose disease.
This video will give a brief overview of GMOs, focussing on its effect on agriculture.
