Micro Question

  1. Okay so Micro wasn't that hard until we started doing Microbial Metabolism. I have to write a one paragraph essay explaining the Calvin Benson Cycle but I can't understand it all, could someone please help.

    We're just starting metabolism today. I'll get back with you if I learn anything that will help. Good luck!

    I found some links but don't know if they'll help since I don't know anything about it yet. I'm only posting them because I don't know if we'll get into this tonight and even if we do, don't know if that's soon enough to help.

    http://www.cells.de/cellseng/1medien...klus/index.jsp This one has an animation with a voice recording explaining it step by step.

    Don't know if that will help or not. There are lots of links but they do seem to repeat themselves so I didn't include them. Good luck!

    Have the links provided given you the understanding that you're looking for?

    If you'd like some feedback, post your paragraph here and you can get some.

    Actually I did some searching and found out some information, and I called my trusty doctor friend who is a resident, but I can't always use him as he is always busy. Thanks for the links though I will bookmark them and use them also.

    I can't believe you have to write a paper like that :uhoh21:. My micro class is not that involved (thank goodness!).

    uuggghh! I am doing APII and micro. WAS liking micro quite a bit until we hit microbe metabolism. I am having a hard time with the Krebs cycle, and glycolysis. Thank God my teacher didnt go over the calvin cycle. I couldn't handle it. I know this wasnt any help, but I hope you get the help you need for it and good luck!!

    Just checking to see how it went. We didn't get into the Calvin cycle but that doesn't mean we won't! lol

    My next lecture exam is on the same subject matter. I am terrified! My professor doesn't give exam reviews, so I have no idea what stuff to focus on out of all that difficult info on metabolism. Yikes. Now I am feeling your pain!
