How to Read DNA: KS4 - Genetic Counselling

How to Read DNA: KS4 - Genetic Counselling

Some people have inherited faulty genes that increase their risk of developing particular types of cancer. The link between the BRCA1 gene and breast cancer was discovered in the 1990s using early genome sequencing techniques. Fast-forward to the present day and researchers at the Oxford Genomics Centre are working at the cutting edge of disease prevention and treatment using new faster and more efficient methods of sequencing. This activity is suitable for extending the more able and asks students to take the role of a genetic counsellor advising someone who has the faulty BRAC1 gene and therefore an increased risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. Learning Outcomes: Students learn how a mutation can increase the risk of developing cancer Students interpret information in order to advise a person in the role of a genetic counsellor See more at: www.oxfordsparks.ox.ac.uk/content/how-read-dna

What can chemists learn from nature: KS5 - Biology to Technology

What can chemists learn from nature: KS5 - Biology to Technology

In this biochemistry-based activity students consider why many industrial chemical reactions are being catalysed by enzymes. They find out about an important coenzyme, NADH and act in role as industrial chemists by evaluating the different ways of recycling it. The activity gives them an insight into research being carried out at the University of Oxford which brings together concepts from biology and chemistry. Learning outcomes: Students learn why NADH is an important coenzyme. Students consider why using enzymes to catalyse reactions are becoming increasingly important in industry. Students evaluate methods into recycling NADH. See more at: http://www.oxfordsparks.ox.ac.uk/content/what-can-chemists-learn-nature

GCSE Glossary

The Excel Document contains 390 key words that illustrates to students the importance (and volume) of vocabulary within the biology GCSE (whether International, AQA, OCR or Edexcel). I have also attached how the key words are utilised in topics. This is perfect for revision or as an introduction to a topic. or as ‘Key Word’ tests that are simple to mark and provide good feedback to students and parents. Expensive but definitely worth it! Any questions then please ask.
