Explain the scientific method and how it’s used to reveal an accurate understan

Explain the scientific method and how it’s used to reveal an accurate understanding of living things; distinguish information resulting from scientific inquiry from that based on anecdotes and deceptive, non-scientific studies. Describe the chemistry of living things and relate biochemicals and their reactions to energy transformations between organisms and their environments; explain the conversion of light energy to chemical energy resulting in the connection between producers and consumers. Describe the variation of cell structures among organisms and contrast them with…

  The advances in biotechnology, genetic research, and pharmaceutical discoverie

  The advances in biotechnology, genetic research, and pharmaceutical discoveries have led to the development of super resistant bacteria and animals to drugs.  There are antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria and there is a rise in pests that are resistant to poisons developed to destroy them.  What can we do to protect ourselves from resistant strains of bacteria, and how can we control pests, like rats and mice, that are now becoming ‘immune’ to the poisons developed to keep them…
