The program of the cell. Genetic Code
The process by which genetic material absorbed from the environment is added to or replaces part of a bacterias DNA. Transformation
A British scientist who was studying the way certain types of bacteria cause the disease pneumonia. Frederick Griffith
He injected mice with different bacterias to understand transformation. Explain Griffith Experiment
The nucleic acid that stores and transmits the genetic information from one generation of an organism to the next. DNA
Went deeper into Griffith's experiment to discover what causes transformation. Oswald Avery
They did the same experiment as Griffith adding enzymes that would brake down certain molecules until the realized DNA was what causes the transformation in the bacteria. Explain Avery’s Experiment
Viruses that eat bacteria. Bacteriophages
Two American scientists that discovered that bacteriophages inject their genetic code into victim bacteria. Alfred Hershey and Martha Chase
What DNA is made up of. Nucleotides

The nitrogen base for RNA that takes the place of thymine. Uracil
DNA-RNA Transcription
RNA-PROTIEN Translation
The RNA in transcription that copies the code from DNA and brings it out of the nucleus. Messenger RNA
The process using rRNA, tRNA, and a ribosome to create a polypeptides chain. Protein Synthesis
