Cells Chapter 2 ツ

This is cells chapter 2. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Photosynthesis The process by which plants and other autotrophs capture and use light energy to make food from carbon dioxide and water.
Autotroph An organism that is able to capture energy from sunlight or chemicals and use it to produce its own food.
Heterotroph An organism that cannot make its own food and gets food by consuming other living things.
Chlorophyll A green photosynthetic pigment found in the chloroplasts of plants, algae, and some bacteria.
Cellular Respiration The process in which oxygen and glucose undergo a complex series of chemical reactions inside cells, releasing energy.
Fermentation The process by which cells release energy by breaking down food molecules without using oxygen.
Cell Cycle The series of events in which a cell grows, prepares for division, and divides to form two daughter cells.
Interphase The first stage of the cell cycle that takes place before cell division occurs, during which a cell grows and makes a copy of its DNA
Replication The process by which a cell makes a copy of the DNA in its nucleus before cell division.
Chromosomes A threadlike structure within a cell's nucleus that contains DNA that is passed from one generation to the next
Mitosis The second stage of the cell cycle during which the cell's nucleus divides into two new nuclei and one set of DNA is distributed into each daughter cell.
Cytokinesis The final stage of the cell cycle, in which the cell's cytoplasm divides, distributing the organelles into each of the two new daughter cells
