3.1 – Cell division<br /><ul><li>All living organisms grow and reproduce.
Since living organisms are made up of cells, this means that cells must be able to grow and reproduce.
Cells reproduce by dividing and passing on their genes to 'daughter" cells.
This process must be very precisely controlled so that no vital information is lost.
Each cell contains its own nucleus which controls the cell's activities, it does this through the genetic material, DNA wh...

Deoxyribonucleic acids, DNA is a double helix.
DNA duplex molecule is made up of a series of genes to encode genetic information.

<ul><li>Figure 3.2 above shows a brief summary of the life cycle of an animal, such as a human.
Two requirements must be satisfied i.e. growth and sexual reproduction.
During growth, a diploid (2n) zygote (one cell) grows into a multicellular diploid adult.
The type of nuclear division that occurs here is called mitosis.
During sexual reproduction, haploid (n) gametes which contain only one set of chromosomes are produced.
The type of nuclear division that halves the chromosome number is called meiosis.</li></li></ul><li>

  1. 1. Chapter 3 –<br />Heredity and Variation<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. 3.1 – Cell division<br /><ul><li>All living organisms grow and reproduce.
  4. 4. Since living organisms are made up of cells, this means that cells must be able to grow and reproduce.
  5. 5. Cells reproduce by dividing and passing on their genes to 'daughter" cells.
  6. 6. This process must be very precisely controlled so that no vital information is lost.
  7. 7. Each cell contains its own nucleus which controls the cell's activities, it does this through the genetic material, DNA which acts as a set of instruction, or code, for life.</li></li></ul><li>
