Applied science – The practical use of scientific information to improve human life
Another molecule, besides NAD+ which can accept a pair of high energy electrons. – FAD
Gonad – A general term for the organ that produces gametes
Nitrogen cycle – Sequence of events or processes involved in the recycling of nitrogen.
four main classes of organic compounds – carbohydrates, proteins ,lipids, nucleic acids

transfer RNA (tRNA) – Interpreter of a series of codons along a mRNA molecule.
episome – A genetic element that can exist either as a plasmid or as part of the bacterial chromosome.
The _________ bone forms part of the anterior portion of the cranial floor, the medial wall of the orbits, the superior portion of the nasal septum, and most of the superior side walls of the nasal cavity. It is a major superior supporting structure of the nasal cavity.
macroevolution – Evolutionary change above the species level.
Consumer – a heterotroph that feeds on cells or tissues of other organisms (herbivores and carnivores)
Tissues – Group of one or more cells that perform a function.
Autotrophs – Organisms that are able to make their own food.
Zygote – Diploid cell formed when a sperm fertilizes an egg.
What are the disadvantages of testing on human cells? – It won't show how effective the drugs are on the whole body, and the growth of artificial human cells is controversial.
Mutualism – A symbiotic relationship between two species in which both species benefit
The _________ bоne fоrms pаrt оf the аnterior portion of the crаnial floor, the medial wall of the orbits, the superior portion of the nasal septum, and most of the superior side walls of the nasal cavity. It is a major superior supporting structure of the nasal cavity.
Predator – Any organism that kills and consumes other organisms.
unsaturated fatty acid – A fatty acid that has one or more double bonds between carbons in the hydrocarbon tail. Such bonding reduces the number of hydrogen atoms attached to the carbon skeleton.
