TAQ 1 parts 1 and 2

Post by HelenArnfield »

Am I right in reading this as part 1 - a brief outline as to what a pathogen is and part 2 - an in depth comparison in table format, with examples of specific pathogens ie virus/influenza?

I have around 30 words for part 1 and the rest of the 300 word count is used in the comparison section of part 2 :roll:

Hey Helen,

When I completed this module, I wrote a paragraph of 35 words for a generalised statement of what a Pathogen is. What is a pathogen? What does it do? (I also threw in a couple of examples)

I then compared characteristics of each of the four given pathogens in the TAQ specifically. This enables you to compare and contrast the different kinds of pathogens.

Useful websites for your research:-

http://science.howstuffworks.com/life/c ... human1.htm
http://www.microbiologyonline.org.uk/ab ... g-microbes

There are also decent sections in both Tortora & Grabowski, and MBV Roberts (Biology Functional Approach) if you have obtained either of those books, to help you to fill out the table.

Let me know if you need any more advice. All the best! Hope you manage to get it done ok :)
