How Vaccines prevent you from getting infectious diseases?
1. Vaccines contain dead/inactive versions of that pathogen, its usually given by an injection. 2. The antigens on the pathogen stimulate the white blood cells to produce antibodies to kill it without any risk of you getting the disease. 3.

Method for Culturing Microorgrams
We culture microorganisms to see the effects of antibiotics on bacteria. Dip innoculating loop into suspension of bacteria you want to go, then streak it in the agar jelly in zig zags.

How to use aseptic techniques for culturing microorganisms?
1. Sterilise agar jelly, petri dish and any other culture medium. 2. Sterilise innoculating loop by passing it under the bunsen burner flame to kill the microorganisms. 3. Sellotape around the lid of petridish to avoid contamination from microbes in

Difference in school and industrial temperatures for growing Microbes?
In school laboratories, cultures are grown at 25. In industry they are grown at 35 for faster growth. They have lower temperatures in school as if the temperature was near body temp (37.4) they can be harmful to health

Explain Antibiotic Resistance
Antibiotic Resistance occurs due to Natural Selection. The bacterium that are not resistant will be destroyed by antibiotics. The bacterium that are resistant, survive to produce a whole strain of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
14 of 67
What do antibiotics do?
Kill or stop the growth of a pathogen.

What do painkillers do?
Releive the symptoms but do not kill the Pathogen. They releive the symptons by blocking nerve impulses to the area of pain.

How are clones produced by Tissue Culture?
1. A group of cells are removed from plant and incubated in plant hormone in petri dishes, this mass produces genetically identical clones of the original plant.
19 of 67
How are clones produced by cuttings?
1. Take a cutting of the plant, dip it in rooting powder to encourage growth of roots and then grow it to produce genetically identical clones/
20 of 67
Why are there differences in characteristics of organisms?
Organisms are produced by sexual reproduction consisting the fusion of two gametes. This mixes the genetic information which causes genetic variation in the offspring.
21 of 67
What do Genes controll?
Genes controll the development of different characteristics in the offspring
22 of 67
Four conditions that affect decay?

The role of Invertebrates?
Invertebrates are indicators of water pollution, particularly the concentration of dissolved oxygen in water. The wider the range of invertebrates, the cleaner the water
28 of 67
The Role of Lichens?
Lichens are indicators of air pollution, particularly Sulfur Dioxide. The cleaner the water, the more Lichens.

Name three living factors that affect the distribution of organisms?
The arrival of a new predator, the arrival of a new disease, introduction to new plants that produce food or habitat
30 of 67
Four non living factors that affect the distribution of organisms?
Rainfall, Temperature, Amount of Oxygen, Light
31 of 67
Three examples of Extreme Conditions?
High temperatures, high concentration of salt in water, high pressures
32 of 67
What are extremophiles?
Living organisms that can live in extreme conditions that most organisms would not be able to survive in.

How is the camel adapted to hot climates?
Small surface area to volume ratio to avoid heat loss by radiation, ability to withstand high temperatures, be able to store water by not producing alot of sweat or urine, thick fur on top of body for shade and thin fur everywhere else to make heatlo
34 of 67
How is Polar Bear adapted to cold climates?
White appearance to camoflauge, large surface area to volume ratio, thick layers of fur and fat for insulation, a greasy coat to shed water after swimming

What do animals compete for?
Food, Water, Shelter, Breeding Sites, Mates

What do plants complete for?
Light, Nutrients, Water

LH is the luteinisng hormone, produced in pituitary gland. Stimlates release of egg from ovary (ovulation)
38 of 67
Produced by ovaries. Inhibits the further production of FSH, stimulates further production of LH, stimulates womb lining to develop to be able to receive a fertilised egg.
39 of 67
FSH is the Follice Stimulating Hormone. Its produced in the pituitary gland. FSH causes egg to mature and Oestrogen to be produced

Definition of Asexual Reproduction?
Reproduction with only one parent, so only one set of genetic information, to produce an identical clone
42 of 67
What is genetic engineering?
The transfer of cells from one organism to another
43 of 67
How animals are cloned using embryo transplants?
Sperm fertilises the egg, then this develops into an early stage embryo (make sure no cells are specialised). Use a glass rod to split the embryo in half, then implant both embryos into the womb of a host mother where is can grow and develop into gen

How are animals cloned using adult cell cloning? Part 1
1. A body cell eg. skin cell is removed from the animal you want to clone. 2. The nucleas containing the genetic information is removed. 3. An unfertilised egg cell from another animal of that species is removed.
45 of 67
How are animals cloned using adult cell cloning? Part 2
4. The Nucleas is removed from unfertilised egg cell to leave an empty egg cell. 5. Nucleas from the body cell is inserted into the empty egg cell.6. Cell is given an electric shock to divide into an embryo which is implanted into womb of a host moth

Define what GM (Genetically Modified) is?
A genetically modified organism is created by using DNA from another Species
47 of 67
Process of Genetic Engineering?
1. Find the gene required. 2. Using an enzyme, cut the gene from the DNA. 3. Using an enzyme, cut a gap into a bacterial DNA. 4. Insert gene into bacterial DNA. 5. Place this back into a Bacterium which then reproduces

Three ways why Natural Selection wasn't accepted at first?
1. People beleived in creationism - the theory that God created everything. 2. Not enough evidence to backup his ideas. 3. Didn't know about inheritance or variation

What do Oral Contraceptive Pills contain?
They contain Oestrogen, because Oestrogen inhibits the further production of FSH so eggs cannot mature. However Oestrogen pills have side affects like headaches and high blood pressure so sometimes progesterone only pills are used.
54 of 67
What do Fertility Drugs contain?
Fertility drugs encourage pregnancy, so contains FSH to mature the egg and contains LH to release the egg.
55 of 67
Process of IVF Treatment?
1. Given fertility drugs containing FSH and LH to produce a mature egg that is released. 2. Mature egg is removed from the ovary into a petri dish. 3. Fertilised by sperm to develop into an embryo. 4. Embryo implanted back into the womb of the mother

Phototropism in plant shoots?
Plant shoots contain more auxin on the shaded side, so the plant grows longer on the shaded side, so it grows towards the light.
57 of 67
Phototropism in plant roots?
There are more auxin on the shaded side, the shaded side grows less, so the roots bend away from the light.
58 of 67
The roots growing down towards gravity and towards moisture
59 of 67
The shoots growing upwards against the force of gravity and towards light

Auxins in Roots?
62 of 67
Agricultural Uses of Plant Hormones?
In rooting powders, to encourage growth of roots. In weedkillers, there are a high dose of auxins which causes a rapid accelerated growth which kills the plant
