- Control Sample
- Experimental Variable
- Genome Characteristics
- a a sample that receives no treatment during an experiment, and demonstrates what happens if no experimental variables are applied.
- b One of two prokaryotic domains of life, the other being Bacteria. Unicellular Prokaryote.
- c 1. Stores information in a stable form: The genome of every organism stores information that provides a blueprint to create its characteristics.
2. Provides continuity from generation to generation: The genome is copied and transmitted from generation to generation.
3. Acts as an instrument of evolutionary change: Every now and then, the genome undergoes a mutation that may alter the characteristics of an organism. In addition, a genome may acquire new genes by horizontal gene transfer. The accumulation of such changes from generation to generation produces the evolutionary changes that alter species and produce new species.
- d entire set of genetic information that an organism carries in its DNA
- e independent variable, the component or factor being tested

4. Additional observations or experiments support or reject a hypothesis
5. A hypothesis is never absolutely proven

- 1. Cells and Organization
2. Energy Use and Metabolism
3. Response to Environmental Changes
4. Regulation and Homeostasis
5. Growth and Development
7. Biological Evolution
- 1. All living things are composed of one or more cell.
2. Cells are the units of life
3. New cells come only from preexisting cells by cell division
- single-celled organisms that do not have a membrane-bound nucleus
- Connected by an Evolutionary History
5 True/False Questions
Taxonomy → identification, naming, and classification of species based on common vertical descent ancestry.
Unit of Life → Science is the observation, identification, experimental investigation and theoretical explanation of natural phenomena.
Control Group → the group that does not receive the experimental treatment.
Hypothesis Example → If exercise is related to weight loss then increasing the amount of daily exercise in someone's routine will cause them to lose weight.
Transport Proteins (Proteomes) → Proteins hold cells together in tissues.
