For c) I wrote about how it was not accurate to be used as paternity testing since many other people can have same blood group.... I won't even talk about what I wrote for the use of blood group it's terrible hahah...I totally blanked out for that bit.
For d) i. I wrote about how one gene one polypeptide etc etc etc
d) ii. I wrote for strength: shows a long DNA sequence rather then just a section of the sequence and they used many samples [I wrote 2 because I thought the first one wouldn't work out well...hopefully they wont mark me down] and for limitation I wrote that the name of the species aren't shown so we don't know what they are [....LOL I totally stuffed up that question]
For e) I wrote about HOX genes and gene therapy (Only wrote 3/4 page others in my year wrote 2 FULL page!!!)
tbh i dont even know what i wrote, by the time i got to the end of the exam i had the worst headache and was bummed about not knowing some previous answers so i wrote some bs about transgenic species and gene therapy etc
Nope. Didn't study them and was ridiculously happy they weren't explicitly in the exam xD
I think I did end up talking about the wrong thing in (i) though. Did any one else talk about redundancy?
In part (ii) I had on one hand, the higher the genetic similarity (%) the closer the common ancestor blah blah blah, and on the other hand, they only analysed one gene, not the remainder of the genome.
