Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The study of heredity and gene action is one of the most rapidly developing fields of biology. Understanding of genetics is essential to modern advances in agriculture, medicine, and many industrial fields dealing with biological diversity. The information content of genetic sequences is enormous and is rapidly becoming a major tool in tracing evolutionary lineages and reassessing biology classification.
I studied nutritional control of development in the roundworm caenorhabditis elegans. I was interested in the signaling pathways and gene regulatory mechanisms that enable the worm to reversibly arrest development and resist stress in response to starvation. I have learn also that, in order to divide, cells must first duplicate their entire contents, and then segregate the duplicated contents equally into two daughter cells.

Advice for students:
-It is very important that you read the text before class; but don't forget that how read the book makes all different. -Make a list of all word in the chapter that you don't understand. -Remember that if a picture is used multiple times in the same chapter it's probably important. You can photocopy the picture and bring it with you to class. -If the instructor has online notes, review sheets, or other information, read them prior to class. Also make sure to bring them with you to class. If something is unclear in class-ASK because most teachers don't mind to ask for clarification in class. -In a lab class read the lab for that day and make sure you fully understand what you are doing in class. -After class rewrite your notes and use the resources that are provided.
