Structure in a cell's nucleus that contains genetic material. chromosome
Cells whose chromosomes occur in pairs. diploid
Deoxyribonucleic Acid: The genetic material of all organisms; made up of two twisted strands of sugar-phosphate molecules and nitrogen base. DNA
haploid sex cell formed in the female reproductive organs. egg
in sexual reproduction the joining of a sperm and egg. fertilization
The section of DNA on a chromosome that contains instructions for making specific proteins. gene
Cell that has one of each type of chromosome. haploid
reproductive process that produces four haploid sex cells from one diploid cell and insures offspring will have the same number of chromosomes as the parent organisms. meiosis
Cell process in which the nucleus divides to form two nuclei identical to each other and identical to the orginal nucleus in a series of steps (prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telephase.) mitosis
Any permanent change in a gene or chromosome of a cell; may be benficial, harmful, or have little effect on an organism. mutation
