Alleles are:
different versions of the same gene

When Mendel conducted his experiments to study heredity, he started with what kind of parental strains?
In meiosis, the end products:
are called gametes
Before a cell can enter the mitosis, it must first:

The giant purple ameoba, a single-celled organism, contains 5 pairs of chromosomes in its nucleus. It undergoes mitosis. How many chromosomes does each of the daughter cells contain?
Cancer cells:
ignore cell cycle checkpoints, resulting in uncontrolled cell division
Growth and repair occur at the cellular level through a process called:
Bacterial cells divide and reproduce by a process called:

Certain requirements need to be met at a ___________ to enable the cell to continue on to the next stage of the cell cycle.
The only example of monosomy (one copy of a chromosome) which occurs in humans is:
XO, Turner's syndrome
Humans have ____ pairs of chromosomes in their cells.
Equational division of chromosomes
Both meiosis and mitosis
Separation of homologous chromosomes
Separation of sister chromatids
Both meiosis and mitosis
Breakdown of the nuclear membrane
Both meiosis and mitosis

Both meiosis and mitosis
Reductional division of chromosomes
Down's Syndrome
Both meiosis and mitosis
Spindle formation
Both meiosis and mitosis
What is one difference between meiosis in human females and meiosis in human males?
Speed, women are a lot slower and are born with everything they'll need though they develop over years. Men however are constantly producing sperm because they develop very quickly.
