chose sequence A for the CS_test_Sequence.pdf this will be your aim to solve leave sequence B I don”t need it.
the Bio is the instruction on opening a websites and answer the questions given from the files i scanned them for you in the zip file.
they are 3 part first part read and comment you will find it in the last section and pert 2 wants you to answer 4 questions the 3rd part got 2 questions please read them throughly and if anything missing please call or send me an email
this is what the academics want:
Genomics in Molecular Medicine
Comparative Genome Analysis
Workshop: What can the genome tell us about what makes us human?
To get the most out of the workshop, please read the following papers and reviews,

Then, go through the guidance notes and questions below:
1. Do the genes microcephalin and ASPM determine the size of the brain?
i. What is the outcome when either the microcephalin or the ASPM gene are
mutated in humans?
ii. Does this give us a clue to the normal function of the gene?
iii. What test was done to identify these genes as candidates for the evolution of a
iv. Looking at the different sequences (haplotypes) of the ASPM gene, what
conclusions did they draw from their geographical distribution?v. Is there any evidence that the haplotypes contribute either to brain size or
vi. for a more philosophical debate about brain size and why the number 150 is
important to humans see:
2. Has a muscle mutation allowed the cranium to expand in humans?
i. How many different myosin genes are there in humans?
ii. Which one is a non-functional pseudogene in humans and where is it normally
iii. What advantages have been proposed for the consequences of the possession of
a non-functional myosin pseudogene in humans?
iv. What changes in behaviour must have happened around the same time?
3. What determines the increased complexity of the human brain?
i. How many copies of the SRGAP2 gene are there in humans and when did they
ii. What is a dendritic spine and what is the role of SRGAP2C in the formation of
iii. Why might slower maturation and greater migration of neurons result in a more
iv. How could the function of SRGAP2C be tested experimentally?
4. Is it just protein coding genes that affect brain evolution?
i. How was the Har1F gene identified as a gene that has evolved rapidly in the
ii. Where is the Har1F gene expressed in humans and why is this significant?
iii. What do many of the HAR regions encode and what function might these
5. Is there a genetic component to speech?
i. What approach was taken to find a gene that is associated with speech. Why was
the KE family important?
Ii What type of protein does FoxP2 express and where is it expressed?
iii. How conserved is the FoxP2 gene and is there any evidence for evolution of this
gene in the human lineage? Is this evolution in promoter or amino acid coding
iv. What other experiments could you do to look at the function of the FoxP2 gene in
Our Service Charter
Excellent Quality / 100% Plagiarism-FreeWe employ a number of measures to ensure top quality essays. The papers go through a system of quality control prior to delivery. We run plagiarism checks on each paper to ensure that they will be 100% plagiarism-free. So, only clean copies hit customers’ emails. We also never resell the papers completed by our writers. So, once it is checked using a plagiarism checker, the paper will be unique. Speaking of the academic writing standards, we will stick to the assignment brief given by the customer and assign the perfect writer. By saying “the perfect writer” we mean the one having an academic degree in the customer’s study field and positive feedback from other customers.
Free RevisionsWe keep the quality bar of all papers high. But in case you need some extra brilliance to the paper, here’s what to do. First of all, you can choose a top writer. It means that we will assign an expert with a degree in your subject. And secondly, you can rely on our editing services. Our editors will revise your papers, checking whether or not they comply with high standards of academic writing. In addition, editing entails adjusting content if it’s off the topic, adding more sources, refining the language style, and making sure the referencing style is followed.
Confidentiality / 100% No DisclosureWe make sure that clients’ personal data remains confidential and is not exploited for any purposes beyond those related to our services.

Feel free to refer to the support team for more information about our payment methods. The fact that you used our service is kept secret due to the advanced security standards. So, you can be sure that no one will find out that you got a paper from our writing service.
Money Back GuaranteeIf the writer doesn’t address all the questions on your assignment brief or the delivered paper appears to be off the topic, you can ask for a refund. Or, if it is applicable, you can opt in for free revision within 14-30 days, depending on your paper’s length. The revision or refund request should be sent within 14 days after delivery. The customer gets 100% money-back in case they haven't downloaded the paper. All approved refunds will be returned to the customer’s credit card or Bonus Balance in a form of store credit.
