endospores are typically found in the genus Clostridium
Bacterial with flagella all over their surface are said to be peritrichous
some bacteria can trasfer DNA to another cell using conjugations pili
Eukaryotic cells add rigidity to their plasma membrane by including what component in the membrane? sterols
osmosis most directly involves: water moving down a concentrations gradient
which of the following refers to the ability of a lens to distinguish adjacent objects as separate? resolution
a compound light microscope can allow one to clearly see objects no smaller than: a small bacterium
______wavelenghts of light will typically result in____resolution. shorter, better
when light bends as it passes through an object,______of the light has occured refraction
electron microscopes have a much better resolvoing power when compared to light microscopes because: electrons have shorter wavelenghtns than visable light
electron microscopes use____to focus the electron beam. electromagnets

the growth rate depends upon: the quality of nutrients you add to the medium.
