Begin with the information
in DNA, a specific gene. Describe how this genetic information results in the
formation of a protein.

2.
Why are viruses the perfect
carriers of healthy genes in the field of gene therapy?

3.
Pretend
you are hiking down through the Grand Canyon or another area rich in fossils.
How do the fossils you see provide evidence for Darwins idea of descent with
modification, or evolutionary theory? In your response, be sure to define the
principles of evolution that support your evidence.

4.
Based on
what you know about the scientific method, choose an animal or plant and
explain how you would determine which individuals in a population were best
adapted to their environment. What evidence would you need and why? What
characteristics would be evidence? Is there a time frame that you would have to
take into account? Why or why not? Cite your references.

5. Select one of the six reproductive barriers
described in your text. What effects do you think that climate change will have
on this particular reproductive barrier? Please use a particular species as an
example that hasnt already been covered, in your description.
