Patterns in DNA

APCSP-78RYSG

Carol is a lab technician who thinks there might be patterns in DNA that could give important clues as to how likely it is that a person develops cancer. She creates a website with this information and publishes large amounts of data.

She asks fellow scientists to look at the data and report any patterns they find that match hers. Carol hopes that these scientists can help her find more patterns in the DNA.

Which of the following would be the most helpful change for Carol to make in order to make this set up successful?

A

Publish her theory in a medical journal.

B

Use Google’s web crawlers to connect her website to more websites, increases traffic.

C

Represent the DNA strands as short puzzles that require no scientific background to find patterns.

D

Double the amount of data published on the website.
