Chapter 10 : Cell reproduction
structures in the nucleus that contain hereditary material
coded instructions that control cell activity
the joining of an egg and a sperm
segment of DNA controlling production of one protein
nuclear division that forms sex cells
formation of two nuclei with identical chromosomes
any permanent change in genetic material of a cell
a nucleic acid which carries the code for making proteins from the nucleus to the ribosomes
reproduction in which a new organism is produced when sex cells combine
