Unit 1 - Cell Biology
The fundamental life processes of plants and animals depend on a variety of chemical reactions that occur in specialized areas of the organism’s cells. As a basis for understanding this concept:
- 1a. Students know cells are enclosed within semipermeable membranes that regulate their interaction with their surroundings
- 1c. Students know how prokaryotic cells, eukaryotic cells (including those from plants and animals), and viruses differ in complexity and general structure.
- 1e. Students know the role of the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus in the secretion of proteins.
- 1j. ***Students know how eukaryotic cells are given shape and internal organization by a cytoskeleton or cell wall or both.
