  1. Experimental Group
  2. Modern Forms of Life-Unity
  3. Control Group
  4. Enzymes (Proteomes)
  5. Experimental Variable
  1. a 1. All modern forms of life display a common set of characteristics.
    2. Based on biological evolution.
  2. b Proteins that speed up chemical reactions. Proteins function as enzymes to synthesize and break down cellular molecules and macromolecules.
  3. c in an experiment, the group that is exposed to the treatment, that is, to one version of the independent variable.
  4. d independent variable, the component or factor being tested
  5. e the group that does not receive the experimental treatment.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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.

    2. Energy Use and Metabolism
    3. Response to Environmental Changes
    4. Regulation and Homeostasis
    5. Growth and Development
    6. Reproduction
    7. Biological Evolution
  3. Cells are the units of life
  4. in a modern taxonomic system, a domain made up of all eukaryotes; this domain aligns with the traditional kingdoms Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia
  5. 1. Atoms

5 True/False questions

  1. Extracellular Proteins (Proteomes)Proteins hold cells together in tissues.


  2. ProkaryotesIs the entire protein complement of a cell or organism. Proteins are largely responsible for the structure and function of cells and complete organisms. All of the proteins that a cell or organism can make.


  3. Biologyidentification, naming, and classification of species based on common vertical descent ancestry.


  4. Hypothesis(microbiology) single-celled or noncellular spherical or spiral or rod-shaped organisms lacking chlorophyll that reproduce by fission


  5. Vertical Descent with Mutation1. Progression of changes in a lineage
    2. New species evolve from preexisting species by the accumulation of mutations
    3. Natural selection takes advantage of beneficial mutations
