Q1. Where have you noticed gene expression lately in the media? What are recent advancements? Have you had any personal experience with this technology? Q2. Caffeine is an inhibitor of cyclic AMP phosphodiesterase. How would drinking several cups of coffee affect muscle function? How might it affect lipid metabolism? Q3. In the past several years, news coverage has focused on several high-profile disease outbreaks involving pathogens against which much of the population has been vaccinated. Discuss how those who are NOT vaccinated may be potentially putting those who ARE vaccinated at risk of developing disease.

It is possible that it will 'hit home' for some, so please be considerate of your initial post and responses. I am sure that many of you have Facebook, just as I.

You may also include personal experience.
