    I'm asking basically what the title states. Do we need to know every mechanism i.e. the promoter, post-translational (Intron, Exons, poly a tail) tRNA and its anti-codon/amino acid sides, etc... Or just the basics? thanks a bunch guys!

    two plant bio chapters
    animal behav chapter
    evolution/ecology/origin of life chapters
    and then skim the chapters about the kingdoms and primates.


    most everything else is overkill(trust me, i actually read the whole damn thing like ten times:eek: )

    A 20 is pretty weak, so I guess i will study everything, just to be prepared :D
