In this unit you should be able to complete six (6) goals.
Analyze how cells grow and reproduce in terms of interphase, mitosis and cytokinesis.
EXPLAIN the double-stranded, complementary nature of DNA as related to its function in the cell.
EXPLAIN how DNA and RNA code for proteins and determine traits.
SUMMARIZE the relationship among DNA, proteins, and amino acids in carrying out the work of cells and how this is similar in all organisms.
EXPLAIN how mutations in DNA that result from interactions with the environment (i.e. radiation and chemicals) or new combinations in existing genes lead to changes in function and phenotype.
EXPLAIN the role of meiosis in sexual reproduction and genetic variation
