  • Chapter 10: Sexual Reproduction and Genetics
    -Human body cells have 46 chromosomes
    -Each parent contributes 23 chromosomes
    -Homologous chromosomes- one of two paired chromosomes, one from each parent
    -Same length
    -Same centromere position
    -Carry genes that control the same inherited traits

  • Chapter 9: Cellular Reproduction

    -As the cell grows, its volume increases much more rapidly than the surface area.
    -The cell might have difficulty supplying nutrients and expelling enough waste products.

  • Big Idea 1: The process of evolution drives the diversity and unity of life

  • DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis

    -The species-particular DNA sequences produce the species-particular proteins
    -Genes code for proteins
    -Genes are long strands of DNA of chromosomes

  • Chapter 7: Cellular Structure and Function

    -All organisims are composed of one or more cells
    -The cell is the basic unit of structure and organization of organisms
    -All cells come from pre-existing cells

    -Simple structure
    -Contains a plasma membrane
    -Does not contain membrane bound organelles
