SCI 115 Week 4 Discussion


Part 1: Post a Response

This week is all about our DNA and gene expression. The complete set of all DNA in a cell is called the genome. The complete set of all the mRNA in a cell is called the transcriptome. Read the following article about the transcriptome found at:, then address the following: Explain how the transcriptome helps us to better understand the differences between cells from different types of tissues that are specialized for different functions. What do you think is the most interesting or significant thing about the transcriptome?

Part 2: Respond to a Peer

Read a post by one of your peers and respond, making sure to extend the conversation by asking questions, offering rich ideas, or sharing personal connections.

Plant class QUESTION


Be sure to answer these questions completely and make sure you explain your answers.

The in-class portion of the Final (100 points) will come from these questions. Draw the graph of plant photosynthesis vs. carbon dioxide concentration for a C3 and C4 plant. Show the CO2 compensation point, saturation point and maximum rate of photosynthesis. Label everything. In the Indoor 4-H Children’s Garden we never use pesticides. Why? A young person tells you that they are afraid of butterflies because they think a butterfly will bite them. How will you respond to that? How do plants tell time? What is the compound in the leaves that is used and how does it work? What statue is in the Milk, Meat and Wool Garden? Why is it there? We spent some time talking about Healing Gardens.  What is a Healing Garden and how can a garden help heal someone? Describe the Butterfly Garden that is in the Outdoor 4-H Children’s Garden. Why are the beds in the Rose Garden raised beds? What is unique about the gardens in the Clarence E. Lewis Arboretum? Explain why Michigan has lots of fruit production along the west side of the state. Desert plants survive in very harsh conditions. What adaptations have they evolved that allow them to survive and even thrive in desert conditions? When you harvest fruit from a plant, what is the most important thing you should do to that fruit to help insure that it will last for as long as possible? Why? What is chilling injury and how does it occur? Basil seeds have a very interesting action when you add water to them. Describe this action and explain why these seeds might do this. You have just met some friends that know you are taking a Horticulture class. As you are talking one of them asks “What zone do you live in?” Explain what they are talking (asking) about. What is plant blindness? Why is it important? What are the different types of plant problems that plants can have? You have been growing plants all semester, so now you are an expert. A friend wants to start growing some plants and comes to you for your expert advice. What one or two pieces of advice would you give your friend to make sure she grows healthy plants?

You are required to write a critical analysis of the disease of your choice.


Included in this analysis, you will need to explain how the disease you chose


affects the various body systems where relevant .




The following relevant and concise information must (if pertinent) be included in your write up. Topic selection is within the systems being covered in the course




§  Name of disease


§  History of the disease


§  Description of disease


§  Anatomy of the system(s) involved


§  Effects on other body systems


§  Cause of disease


§  Signs and symptoms


§  Diagnosis of the disease


§  Complications, if any


§  Treatment and side effects


Conclusion should include the following:


§  Brief mention of current or proposed research that may significantly impact the


§  disease.


§  Prevention strategies if any


§  Your insight / opinion




NOTE: you must focus on the anatomy & physiology of the disease/disorder. Cover


the normal anatomy & physiology of the organ system affected and then state what the


disease/disorder does to this organ system, and other organ systems. In other words, if


you are picking meningitis, I do not want you to go too much in detail about the


bacteria that causes it but how the bacteria escapes our body’s defenses and what the


bacteria does to other tissues.






Suggested Topics for the Paper:   (Obtain Instructor’s approval of your topic)




Below listed systems are covered in Bio 202, so topic selection MUST be within these systems.



 The Cell Membrane/physiology: Cystic Fibrosis and other membrane related disorders.



 Integumentary System / Skin: common diseases, disorders and pathologies of skin including color disorders



 Bone: common diseases, disorders and pathologies of bone



 Joints: common diseases and disorders e.g. Rheumatoid Arthritis. Etc.



 Muscle Tissue:


·         Skeletal – neuromuscular junction, action of blocking agents at NMJ


·         Cardiac


·         Smooth

 Endocrine – System: common diseases, disorders and syndromes



 Nervous System: System: common diseases, disorders and syndromes


·         Brain


·         Spinal Cord


·         Autonomic Nervous System

 General Senses



 Special Senses:


·         Eye: common refractive errors, diseases and disorders including causes of blindness


·         Ear: common hearing disorders, including causes of deafness



 Any tropical disease related to the above systems



 You need to contact your instructor with the disease that you wish to write on for approval . ONLY ONE DISEASE PER STUDENT , so send in your requests early to get yourchoice. If you wish to cover a disorder/ disease that is not on this list, email the instructor for approval. APA FORMAT
