Background and composition [ edit | edit source ]

"Biology" is composed of a number of distinctly different sections. The song begins with Nadine Coyle singing over a bluesy piano riff, based on the main riff from The Animals' "Club A-Gogo". The first verse occurs, followed by two noticeably individual transitional bridges. Around two minutes into the song, the song reaches its climactic chorus before returning to the stanza heard in the introduction. The song repeats the chorus and the introduction is also used as an outro. The song avoids the typical AABA form and verse-chorus form present in most contemporary pop music.

Brian Higgins and Xenomania created "Biology" in reaction to Girls Aloud's previous single "Long Hot Summer", which Higgins called "a disaster record. Higgins continued, "I think that [Biology] is a wonderful record - so uplifting. It meant so much to us and it really set Chemistry up well." The lyric referring to "wicked games", which is mentioned in the Animals-inspired riff, was inspired by Girls Aloud almost releasing a cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" as a single.

The song's title inspired the album's title, Chemistry. Both the single and album title refer to the scientific fields of biology and chemistry.

News & Media

Cambridge, Massachusetts. (December 8, 2020) – Remix Therapeutics, a biotechnology company developing small molecule therapies designed to reprogram RNA processing to address the underlying drivers of disease, launched today with $81 million in financing. The funds will support development of the company’s REMaster technology platform and advancement of a pipeline of RNA processing targeted therapeutics. The Series A round was led by Foresite Capital with participation from seed investors Atlas Venture and The Column Group. Additional investors joining the financing included Arch Venture and Alexandria Venture Investments.

“As we reach the limits of what is easily druggable with protein targeting therapies, reprogramming RNA processing represents an exciting new therapeutic opportunity. We believe we can precisely target the cellular complexes that process RNA to address the underlying drivers of disease, working upstream of protein expression,” said Pete Smith, PhD, Co-Founder, President and CSO of Remix Therapeutics and Atlas Venture Entrepreneur in Residence. “Backed by world-class investors, a distinguished board of directors and experts in the field, the Remix team is united in its singular focus to deliver new and better ways to treat disease, especially those with limited treatment options.”

While protein dysfunction is often the direct cause of disease, the root of that dysfunction often begins in a person’s genetic code with changes in DNA and subsequent RNA expression. Remix is designing medicines that target RNA processing to fine-tune how new RNA sequences are produced. These are small molecule therapies designed to be taken orally, allowing for therapeutic modulation throughout the body, including the central nervous system (CNS). Targeting RNA processing has the potential to address a broad range of diseases, including cancers, CNS diseases, rare diseases, and more.

“Remix is harnessing advances in data science, structural biology and chemistry to tackle disease in new and exciting ways,” said Michael Rome, PhD, Managing Director of Foresite Capital. “We believe the company is well-positioned to realize the potential of targeting RNA processing to deliver real therapeutic solutions for patients.”

Fueled by its proprietary REMaster technology platform, Remix is leveraging the power of data analytics, bespoke high-throughput screening technologies, and next generation chemistry to advance a pipeline of breakthrough therapies. The company’s innovative approach has the unique ability to precisely identify and target RNA processing steps to enhance or eliminate protein function, or to correct dysregulation in disease.

“RNA has long been considered a prime therapeutic target, but its innate complexities have made it notoriously difficult to drug. By focusing on RNA processing, the Remix team has identified a compelling way to pursue previously undruggable disease targets,” said Kevin Bitterman, PhD, Chairman of the Board of Remix Therapeutics and Partner at Atlas Venture.

Remix’s Board of Directors include:

· Kevin Bitterman, PhD, Chair of Remix Therapeutics, and Partner at Atlas Venture

· Michael Rome, PhD, Managing Director of Foresite Capital

· Leon Chen, PhD, Partner at The Column Group

· Scott Biller, PhD, Independent Board Member

· Peter Smith, PhD, President and CSO, Remix Therapeutics

· Kristina Burrow, Managing Director, Arch Venture, Board Observer

Introduction to Biology and the Characteristics of Life Socrative Discussion (Remix)

I like to start my class year off with a good introduction to the subject as well as a fun hook. When students walk into my classroom on Day 1, there is a large box sitting on a lab table labeled "DO NOT OPEN WITHOUT TEACHER PERMISSION!" It immediately catches students' eyes and communicates that this class will not be an ordinary class. I don't reference the box at all as I am greeting them, and if any student asks about the box then I solemnly dismiss or defer their question. I like to build the aura of mystery as much as I can. After we make introductions and review the highlights of the syllabus, it is finally time to reveal the mystery box. Inside the box are seven items representing the characteristics of life. Feel free to use mine or to make up your own!

  • A lighter or a food item to represent that living things use/possess energy
  • A microscope or a slide to represent that living things have cells
  • A binder or folder to represent the organization of living things
  • A cell phone with a voice assistant to represent the responsiveness of living things to the environment
  • A diaper or baby bottle to represent the reproduction of living things
  • A balloon that (when inflated) represents the growth of living things
  • Something adjustable (like a clamp) to represent adaptation. You could even use a lock/key and talk about organisms "fit" their environment using specific adaptations

At this point I either have students come up with the characteristics on their own using the items as clues, or I give them a list of the characteristics and have them identify which of the mystery items represents what to encourage review and discussion. After the students are comfortable with the characteristics, briefly introduce viruses and then use the original resource to discuss why viruses should or should not be considered living. If you don't have time to introduce viruses, a discussion about which characteristics of life cars possess or whether or not living things in suspended animation (like the Tardigrade) should be considered alive would also make great socrative discussions.


Morehouse College Student Flips Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO Tour Llif3” Into Biology-Inspired Track “XY Cell Llif3”

A Morehouse student has remixed Lil Uzi Vert&aposs "XO Tour Llif3" into an educational track about biology.

Julien Turner recently uploaded a video to his YouTube page titled "XY Cell Llif3." The video uses the track from Uzi&aposs hit song, but with a twist. The regular chorus goes, "I don&apost really care if you cry/On the real, you shoulda never lied/Shoulda saw the way she looked me in my eyes/She said: &aposBaby, I am not afraid to die&apos/Push me to the edge/All my friends are dead/Push me to the edge/All my friends are dead."

But Turner slid some game on how cells work in his version. "The DNA starts to unwind/The RNA reads the other side/Meiosis is the key to making life/Mitosis copies cells about to die/If my genes go left unread/All my cells are dead/If my genes go left unread/All my cells are dead," he raps on his interpretation.

He continues to break the science down even further in the verses. According to the video&aposs description, this was an "Extra credit assignment done for non-major biology class."

Julien and hs 15-year-old brother, Justen, both co-own Dreadhead Films, LLC., "a film production company with a mission to create stories that entertain, inspire, and uplift."

Uzi, who recently appeared in XXL&aposs 20th anniversary cover, just released his "The Way Life Goes" remix with Nicki Minaj.

Check out the biology-inspired remix of Lil Uzi Vert&aposs "XO Tour Llif3" below.

This 'Despacito' Remix Is Going Viral For a Wonderful Reason

R emember “Despacito,” the song of the summer for 2017? Surely you haven’t forgotten Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s verified banger so soon. But if you’re in the mood to revisit its Latin charms, consider this update. Posted on the Facebook page “A Cappella Science,” the evolutionary-development-biology-themed version is sung a cappella to the catchy tune of the now-classic “Despacito.” After being re-posted on Halloween, it’s now racked up more than 5 million views (and nearly half a million on YouTube). That’s because it’s a work of pure art and science, combined.

With lyrics that name-check famous biologists and reference terms like phenotype and genotype &mdash all while laying out a visual representation of the subject &mdash it also might become a biology teacher’s favorite classroom tool.

“We are built of molecules combined in a planned-out way,” creator Tim Blais sings in the chorus. “Each piece must be told where to go. Now there’s a science helping us to understand how our cells encode this architectural plan, signaling each other with genetic tools, oh… It’s evo-devo.” Blais, who is in charge of the Facebook page and associated YouTube channel, calls his work an “online video project” and describes himself as a physics master’s student and “lifelong harmony addict” who draws inspiration from acts like Weird Al and Bill Nye. The videos are done as layers of Blais himself singing and beat-boxing he’s a one-man show.

About Biology 2e

Biology 2e (2nd edition) is designed to cover the scope and sequence requirements of a typical two-semester biology course for science majors. The text provides comprehensive coverage of foundational research and core biology concepts through an evolutionary lens. Biology includes rich features that engage students in scientific inquiry, highlight careers in the biological sciences, and offer everyday applications. The book also includes various types of practice and homework questions that help students understand — and apply — key concepts.

The 2 nd edition has been revised to incorporate clearer, more current, and more dynamic explanations, while maintaining the same organization as the first edition. Art and illustrations have been substantially improved, and the textbook features additional assessments and related resources.

Coverage and scope

Biology was one of the first textbooks published by OpenStax and has been used by hundreds of faculty and thousands of students since 2012. We mined our adopters’ extensive and helpful feedback to identify the most significant revision needs while maintaining the organization that many instructors had incorporated into their courses. Specific surveys, focus groups, and pre-revision reviews, as well as data from our OpenStax Tutor users, all aided in planning the revision.

The result is a book that thoroughly treats biology’s foundational concepts while adding current and meaningful coverage in specific areas. Biology 2e retains its manageable scope and contains ample features to draw learners into the discipline.

Structurally, the textbook remains similar to the first edition, with no chapter reorganization and very targeted changes at the section level (mostly in biodiversity).

  • Unit 1: The Chemistry of Life. Our opening unit introduces students to the sciences, including the scientific method and the fundamental concepts of chemistry and physics that provide a framework within which learners comprehend biological processes.
  • Unit 2: The Cell. Students will gain solid understanding of the structures, functions, and processes of the most basic unit of life: the cell.
  • Unit 3: Genetics. Our comprehensive genetics unit takes learners from the earliest experiments that revealed the basis of genetics through the intricacies of DNA to current applications in the emerging studies of biotechnology and genomics.
  • Unit 4: Evolutionary Processes. The core concepts of evolution are discussed in this unit with examples illustrating evolutionary processes. Additionally, the evolutionary basis of biology reappears throughout the textbook in general discussion and is reinforced through special call-out features highlighting specific evolution-based topics.
  • Unit 5: Biological Diversity. The diversity of life is explored with detailed study of various organisms and discussion of emerging phylogenetic relationships. This unit moves from viruses to living organisms like bacteria, discusses the organisms formerly grouped as protists, and devotes multiple chapters to plant and animal life.
  • Unit 6: Plant Structure and Function. Our plant unit thoroughly covers the fundamental knowledge of plant life essential to an introductory biology course.
  • Unit 7: Animal Structure and Function. An introduction to the form and function of the animal body is followed by chapters on specific body systems and processes. This unit touches on the biology of all organisms while maintaining an engaging focus on human anatomy and physiology that helps students connect to the topics.
  • Unit 8: Ecology. Ecological concepts are broadly covered in this unit, with features highlighting localized, real-world issues of conservation and biodiversity.

Changes to the Second Edition

OpenStax only undertakes second editions when significant modifications to the text are necessary. In the case of Biology 2e, user feedback indicated that we needed to focus on a few key areas, which we have done in the following ways:

  • Content revisions for clarity, accuracy, and currency. The revision plan varied by chapter based on need. About twenty chapters were wholly revised with significant updates to conceptual coverage, research-informed data, and clearer language. In about fifteen other chapters, the revisions focused mostly on readability and clearer language with fewer conceptual and factual changes.
  • Additional end-of-chapter questions. The authors added new assessments to nearly every chapter, including both review and critical thinking questions. The additions total over 350 new items.
  • Art and illustrations. Under the guidance of the authors and expert scientific illustrators, especially those well versed in creating accessible art, the OpenStax team made changes to most of the art in Biology. You will find examples in the section below. The revisions fall into the following categories:
    • Revisions for accuracy
    • Redesigns for greater understanding and impact
    • Recoloring art for overall consistency
    • To accommodate users of specific assistive technologies, all alternative text was reviewed and revised for comprehensiveness and clarity.
    • Many illustrations were revised to improve the color contrast, which is important for some visually impaired students.
    • Overall, the OpenStax platform has been continually upgraded to improve accessibility.

    A transition guide will be available on OpenStax.org to highlight the specific chapter-level changes to the second edition.

    Pedagogical foundation

    The pedagogical choices, chapter arrangements, and learning objective fulfillment were developed and vetted with the feedback of another one hundred reviewers, who thoroughly read the material and offered detailed critical commentary.

    • Evolution Connection features uphold the importance of evolution to all biological study through discussions like “The Evolution of Metabolic Pathways” and “Algae and Evolutionary Paths to Photosynthesis.”
    • Scientific Method Connection call-outs walk students through actual or thought experiments that elucidate the steps of the scientific process as applied to the topic. Features include “Determining the Time Spent in Cell Cycle Stages” and “Testing the Hypothesis of Independent Assortment.”
    • Career Connection features present information on a variety of careers in the biological sciences, introducing students to the educational requirements and day-to-day work life of a variety of professions, such as microbiologist, ecologist, neurologist, and forensic scientist.
    • Everyday Connection features tie biological concepts to emerging issues and discuss science in terms of everyday life. Topics include “Chesapeake Bay” and “Can Snail Venom Be Used as a Pharmacological Pain Killer?”

    Art and animations that engage

    Our art program takes a straightforward approach designed to help students learn the concepts of biology through simple, effective illustrations, photos, and micrographs. Biology 2e also incorporates links to relevant animations and interactive exercises that help bring biology to life for students.

    • Visual Connection features call out core figures in each chapter for student study. Questions about key figures, including clicker questions that can be used in the classroom, engage students’ critical thinking and analytical abilities to ensure their genuine understanding.
    • Link to Learning features direct students to online interactive exercises and animations to add a fuller context and examples to core content.

    Below are a few examples of the revised art for Biology 2e:
