Data – Evidence; Information gathered from observations
photon – A fixed quantity of light energy. The shorter the wavelength of light, the greater the energy of a photon.
Ribonucleic acid (RNA) – Single-stranded nucleic acid that contains the sugar ribose
If hemophilia is a sex-linked, recessive trait, and a non-hemophiliac man has children with a carrier of of the disease, what % of the boys will have the disease? – 50% because only half will have the recessive alleles.
nonshivering thermogenesis (NST) – When hormones cause mitochondria to produce heat instead of ATP in some mammals.

Molecules – two or more atoms joined together
* Herbivores – (first) the consumers that consume only plants (herb-plant),
Physician who studies and treats diseases of the ear, nose, and larynx (throat)
rough endoplasmic reticulum – synthesizes proteins for export from the cell, rough from attached ribosomes

Pistil – the female flower structure, containing the style, stigma, and ovary
Hepatitis – A, B, and C. Affects the liver. Can b caused byrecreational drugs and prescription medication
ionic bond – the attraction of anions and cations to each other
founder effect – Genetic drift that occurs when a few individuals become isolated from a larger population, with the result that the composition of the new population's gene pool is not reflective of that of the original population.
Physiciаn whо studies аnd treаts diseases оf the ear, nоse, and larynx (throat)
food – A substance that can be eaten, and processed for nutritional value.
Monosaccharide – The simplest carbohydrate, active alone or serving as a monomer for disaccharides and polysaccharides. Also known as simple sugars, the molecular formulas of monosaccharides are generally some multiple of CH20.
