  2. All the genetic information within an organism/cell.
  3. Structural change to genetic material - either to a gene or to a chromosome.
  4. Structure formed on the centromere that attaches the chromosomes to the spindle fibres during mitosis and meiosis.

5 True/False questions

  1. PhenotypeObservable characteristics of an organism.


  2. Initiator codonOne of three triplet codes (UGA, UAG or UAA) that causes the termination of translation by the ribosome.


  3. Genetic variationThe way in which the 64 possible base triplets map onto the 20 amino acids that are used in polypeptide chains.


  4. ATPMolecule (nucleotide derivative) found in all living cells and involved in energy transfer. When it is hydrolysed energy is released.


  5. OperonA sequence of three bases that codes for a single amino acid according to the genetic code.
