1.2 Doctor Faustus

Critics who have studied Marlowe's work have for the most part been inclined to take on trust the picture of him provided by Kyd, Baines, Beard and others, and to read the plays as statements of the author's own radical beliefs. But there is an obvious problem with this approach to Marlowe's work: we simply don't know whether these hostile accounts of his opinions are accurate or, as seems likely, deeply compromised by their writers' own motives and circumstances.

1.1.4 Genetic testing of adults

Huntington's disease is a good example of a late-onset disorder because it is fatal, non-treatable, relatively frequent and has a strong genetic element that can be tested for. There are others that fall into a similar category, i.e. mainly relate to a single gene, such as adult polycystic kidney disease. The issues surrounding late-onset multifactorial diseases, such as diabetes and breast cancer, will be dealt with separately. To date, relatively few diseases that fall into both these categ

3.2.1 Axes

A graph is made using two different scales or axes, forming a right angle. The horizontal axis (x-axis) is used to represent the variable that changes in a consistent way, such as time, or in a way that you can control. The vertical axis (y-axis) is used to represent a variable that you measure but may not be able to control directly, such as a patient's temperature.

Each axis should be carefully labelled to indicate what it represents. To plot a graph, you put a mark at the poin
