Will i be able to make it? Mcmaster Life science
Hey guys, for those of you who have gotten into mcmaster life science for 2017/2018, what were your averages and around when did you get in. this year the range is 85-88%, do I really have a shot if I have an 88% average?

McMaster Life science who got into Mac for 2017/2018
Hey guys, if you have gotten into Mac for the 2017/2018 school year can you please tell me what average you got in with and when? I'm still waiting and I'm super anxious!

Canadians studying in US
I’m a Canadian looking to go to a really good school in the US, but unfortunately I don’t qualify for much financial aid. Most Canadian scholarships that I’ve found can only be used at Canadian schools. Are there any good scholarships for Canadians looking to study in the States as undergraduates?
Life Science Co-op(s)
Hey guys! I've been accepted to life science programs at York-Biology(with Co-op), Guelph-Toxicology(with co-op), and Ryerson University-Biomedical Science(with co-op). I found out that taking co-op in these fields aren't necessary when comparing it at least to say an engineering degree. Is there any point of doing these? or is it just a time consumer? My cousin who did a Co-op during his undergrad at Ryerson said that it's useless and just go straight to a professional school/graduate school. He further stated that with or without co-op, a bsc is still not enough to make you pop out in the job market? Is my cousin right or is this just a common misconception?
Can't choose between U of T or McGill...
I want to know what the pros and cons are for each university, but the program of my choice is also a deciding factor. I plan to go to med school and right now, I'm thinking of either getting a B.Sc in Biology or Psychology at McGill, or Cognitive Science (Arts and Science) at U of T.

virus like particles product
Creative Biostructure provides virus-like particles (VLPs) containing high concentrations of specific membrane proteins in their native conformation. VLPs capture conformationally-intact membrane proteins directly from the cell surface, enabling these complex proteins to be manipulated as soluble proteins. Our VLPs are produced with specified membrane proteins on a custom basis, or are available from a selected catalog of ReadyVLPs. Sample kits are also available for purchase for preliminary application testing. Virus-like particles (VLPs) have evolved to become a widely accepted technology, especially in the field of vaccinology. In fact, some VLP-based vaccines are currently used as commercial medical products, and other VLP-based products are at different stages of clinical study. Several remarkable advantages have been achieved in the development of VLPs as gene therapy tools and new nanomaterials. In recent years, the technologies develop very fast that are used to characterize the structural integrity, stability, and components, including the encapsidated nucleic acids, of newly synthesized VLPs. Moreover, some of the modifications that are required to construct VLP-based carriers of viral origin with defined properties can be provided.

nmr service
NMR spectroscopy is a key analytical technique for structure elucidation of a wide range of materials from small molecules to compounds. The technique provides detailed molecular information that allows researchers have in-depth understanding of composition, chemical structure, morphology, and dynamics. NMR is particularly useful in analysis of pharmaceuticals, screening weak-binding compounds and developing into drug-like inhibitors for drug discovery. Supported by our NMR platform, Creative Biostructure offers high quality customized services ranging from production of labeled-proteins to acquisition and analysis of high-field NMR data for researchers in science and pharmaceutical industry.

factor xiiia enzyme
Human Factor XIII is cleaved with human alpha thrombin. The thrombin is subsequently removed via chromatography. The above protein was purified from Human plasma that was tested and found negative by FDA accepted methods fro Anti-HIV1/2, Anti-HTLV I & II, HBsAg, Anti-HCV, Syphilis, ABC ab, HIV-1 p24 Ag or HIV-1 RNA, HCV RNA and HBV RNA. Donors are screened for CJD (Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease).

superoxide dismutase
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) catalyzes the dismutation of superoxide radicals to hydrogen peroxide and molecular oxygen. SOD plays a critical role in the defense of cells against the toxic effects of oxygen radicals. SOD competes with nitric oxide (NO) for superoxide anion (which reacts with NO to form peroxynitrite), thereby SOD promotes the activity of NO. SOD has also been shown to suppress apoptosis in cultured rat ovarian follicles, neural cell lines, and transgenic mice by preventing the conversion of NO to peroxynitrate, an inducer of apoptosis.

aldehyde dehydrogenase
Aldehyde dehydrogenase from yeast catalyzes the following reaction: RCHO + NAD/NADP+ + H2O → RCOOH + NADH/NADPH+ + H+. The yeast enzyme requires potassium ions and thiols (glutathione, 2-mercaptoethanol, cysteine) for its activity. It is inhibited by traces of heavy metals, particularly copper. Similar enzymes, but with different requirements for their catalytic activities, have been purified from equine liver and from human erythrocytes. The enzyme from yeast has a molecular weight of 200,000.

α-l-iduronidase
This enzyme catalyses the hydrolysis of unsulfated α-L-iduronosidic linkages in dermatan sulfate. In lysosomal degradation process α-L-Iduronidase plays a crucial role. It hydrolyzes the non-reducing terminal α-L-iduronic acid residues in GAGs, including dermatan sulfate and heparan sulfate. It is involved in the degeneration of glycosaminoglycans such as dermatan sulfate and heparan sulfate. It is found in the lysosomes of cells.

papain from papaya
Papain papaya latex has antifungal activity against C. albicans. It is a cysteine protease that cleaves peptide bonds of basic amino acids, leucine, or glycine.

chymotrypsin
Chymotrypsin is a digestive enzyme component of pancreatic juice acting in the duodenum where it performs proteolysis, the breakdown of proteins and polypeptides. Chymotrypsin preferentially cleaves peptide amide bonds where the carboxyl side of the amide bond (the P1 position) is a large hydrophobic amino acid (tyrosine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine). These amino acids contain an aromatic ring in their sidechain that fits into a 'hydrophobic pocket' (the S1 position) of the enzyme. It is activated in the presence of trypsin.

Philosophy11 over Biology11?
I'm in Grade 10 and Course submission has passed by nearly a month. I'm still undecisive about a particular course change I might consider. Philosophy I think might be something I might enjoy regarding thinking about things, but cutting Biology I'm scared will cut off the medical field even though I intend to go into computer topics.

I'd be changing Biology11 for Philosophy: The Big Questions 11.

My current roster of next years courses are...
English11
Functions11
Chemistry11 (AP)
Physics11
Financing11
Visual Arts11
Computer Technology11
+ Biology 11 or Philosophy: The Big Questions 11

Should I make this change? Is it okay to cut off a field even though I don't intend to go there at this moment? I could also switch philosophy for computer technology, visual art or financing.

Or atleast, can anybody say anything about one of the two courses from experience or word-of-mouth?

UPDATE: Still looking for answers! If I do continue biology, I'm honestly getting increasingly worried that having a total of 3 sciences will bog my mind down to a dull "textbook mind" and make my future so focused on numbered grades and hardcore memorization - a state of mind I might not recover from in my dream jobs.
