|What is the difference between a somatic cell and a germ cell?
(What are they and how many chromosomes do they have?)
|Somatic Cell: A Body Cell (can only under go mitosis) 46 Chromosomes
Germ Cell: Haploid eggs or sperm ( undergoes meiosis) 26 Chromosomes or half the amount of the chromosomes in a somatic cell.
|What is the order of: Chromosomes, genes, cells, nucleus, bases, and DNA?||Cell. Nucleus. Chromosomes. DNA. Genes. Bases.|
|What are the chemicals that make up the sides of DNA?||1. Deoxyribose (a sugar)
2. Phosphates (molecules)
|What are the names of the bases that make up the "rungs" of DNA and what ones match with each?||There is: Thymine, Guanine, Cytosine, Adenine
T goes to A, while G goes to C.
|Where are chromosome found?||In the nucleus|
|When and why does DNA replicate?||DNA replicates in interphase and it replicates because each daughter cell must have a complete set of DNA to survive and these daughter cells are made constantly.|
|In what phase are most cells?||Interphase|
|What is the shape of DNA?||A Double Helix|
