  • Genetics Talk

    Published 04/05/16
    maxresdefaultThanks to the organisation of the science society, Rhys Jones gave a fascinating talk to a few sixth form students on the ability of scientists to add a fluorescent protein to proteins of biological interest in order to follow its progress through organisms. This technique is used by scientists who don't have access to more expensive Scanning Electron Microscopes to see structures inside cells. It basically consists of cutting a section of a protein that creates the fluorescent glow of jellyfish and pasting it onto the end of the protein that the scientist wants to observe. This can then be easily seen by scientists as it goes through synthesis, transport through the cell, and different functions.

  • New! Psychopathology Society

    Published 24/04/16
    Psychopathology Society will be running on Wednesdays during lunchtime, anyone and everyone is welcome but it's especially relevant to those going into any kind of caring profession (doctors, nurses, etc). We will start off by discussing mental disorders and what they actually are versus what people commonly see them as, and we will go into both the biological and the psychological theories behind them. We will also be running a blog where we can post about the things we've done, as well as continuing to contribute to the school blog! Writing pieces for both of these blogs can really help you delve into research further in topics that you want to learn more about; everyone chooses their own topic and when they want to write, no commitments or deadlines! The idea is for everyone to have a chance to learn about an aspect of mental health that interests them, and we want everyone to have the opportunity to participate fully, writing about what they enjoyed or putting forward ideas for the next weeks session, everyone's ideas are unique and deserve to be listened to! Everyone is welcome, we hope to see you there!
