frameshift mutation – mutation that shifts the "reading" frame of the genetic message by inserting or deleting a nucleotide
Reactant – the starting material in a chemical reaction
Theory – A highly tested, generally accepted principle that explains a vast number of observations and experimental data.
nucleolus – A small, dense region where the assembly of ribosomes begins.
eukaryote – organism whose cells contain a nucleus
intron – a non-coding segment of a gene, segments of a gene whose information is removed from the pre-mRNA segment during splicing 12-3
A bag (made out of an artificial dialysis membrane) containing a 10% sucrose solution is placed in a beaker containing a 25% starch solution. The dialysis membrane is not permeable to sucrose or starch. In such a scenario, would there be a net movement of water?
What is the plasma and what does it do? – The liquid part of the blood. It transports important substances around the body (e.g. Hormones, CO2 and glucose).
primary productivity – rate at which organic matter is created by producers in an ecosystem
cytoplasm – inside cell membrane, includes fluid, cytoskeleton, and all organelles (except nucleus)
population genetics – The study of genetics in a specific population within a species.
chromatin – present during interphase
A bаg (mаde оut оf аn artificial dialysis membrane) cоntaining a 10% sucrose solution is placed in a beaker containing a 25% starch solution. The dialysis membrane is not permeable to sucrose or starch. In such a scenario, would there be a net movement of water?
ribbon model – this shows how a single polypeptide chain folds and coils to form a functional protein
symbiosis – Interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association.
mycelium – the part of the fungus responsible for extracellular digestion and absorption of the digested food
