    Just one circular DNA molecule
  13. In addition to the genome found in the nucleos, where else we find genomes?
    In the mitochondria and the chloroplast.
  14. In eukaryotic cells how is the genome?
    is usually divided up into multiple chromosomes
  15. How is the size of the genomes?
    It varies from organism to organism
  16. Which enzyme builds the RNA chain during transcription?

  17. how is composed the codons?
    Of three mRNA bases
  18. Is true or false that the tRNAs have sprecific complementary sequences that bind to them?
  19. What is a translation?
    Is "reading" of an mRNA to produce an amino acid sequence.

    a. nucleic acids
    b. the nucleus
    c. genes
    e. proteins
  22. Steps to create a transgenic organism.
    • 1. Acquire source DNA and cloning vector

  23. Hershey and Chase found that _______ rahter that ______, was the molecule of heredity.
    • DNA
    • Protein
  24. What do Hershey and chase's experimental design used to infect bacteria in order to determine the chemical nature of the genetic information?
  25. What did Hershey and Chase used to label the protein in order to track the movement of the protein during the infection?
    They used a radioactive sulfur.
  26. After infection with the bacteria, what Hershey and Chase used to separate the viral coats from the bacterial cells?
    Used a blender.
  27. Who would bind to and "read" an mRNA molecule during protein synthesis?
    A ribosome
  28. In a RNA molecule, a(n)_______ is a genetic "code word" that corresponds to one aminoacid.
  29. Two funtions of ribosomal RNA
    • Help align the ribosome with the mRNA to prepare for translation
    • Catalyze the formation of bonds between aminoacids in the devoloping protein
  30. During the tewntieth century, which of the following was shown to be the information molecule of heredity?
  31. What was the contribution of Oswald Avery, Maclyn McCarty, and Colin MacLeod?
    Discovered that it was DNA that could trasform R bacteria into manufacturing a smooth coat.
  32. What was the contribution of Alfred Hershey and MArtha Chase?
    Conclusively showed that DNA was the molecule of heredity because radioactively-labelec DNA, not protein, entered bacterial cells and directed them to produce viruses.
  33. What was the contribution of Archibald Garrod?
    Discovered that people with "inborn errors of metabolism" lacked certain enzymes.
  34. What was the contribution of Frederick Griffith?
    Discovered that one strain of bacteria could "transform" another by inducing it to display new traits.

  40. __________ mutations do not pass from generation to generation because they occur in non-sex cells.
  41. Which mutatition can be passed from one generation to the next?
  42. True or False: In Griffith's experiment with Streptococcus pneumonie and mice, he found that one strain of heat-killed bacteria had the ability to trasfer its traits to another bacterium of a different strain.
