Science Terms

What is DNA? The genetic matterial found in all living cells that contains the information needed for an organism to grow, maintain itself, and reproduce.
What is Binary Fission? The results in two nearly equal, independent cells.
What is Cell Division? The process by which cells divides into two or more cells.
What is Interphase? The stage of a cell immediately following the completion of cell division.
What is Mitosis? The process in cell division in which the nucleus divides to produce two new nuclei, each having the having the same number and type of chromosomes as the original.
What is Cell Cycle? The series of events that takes place in a cell leading to its division and duplication.
What is Chromosome? A structure in all living cels that carries the genes that determine heredity.
What is Cytokyinesis? The cytoplasmic division of a cell at the end of mitosis.
What is Genetic Material? The material found in cells that contains the genetic information of living organisms.
What is Regeneration? Regrowth of lost or destroyed parts or organs.
What is Budding? When a new organism is grown off the side of another organism.
What is Prophase? The first phase of cell division. The chromosomes become visible as paired chromatids and the nuclear envelope disappears
What is Metaphase? The second stage of cell division, during which the chromosomes become attached to the spindle fibers
What is Anaphase? The stage of meiotic or mitotic cell division in which the chromosomes move away from one another to opposite poles of the spindle.
What is Telophase? The final phase of cell division in which the chromatids or chromosomes move to opposite ends of the cell and two nuclei are formed.
What is Spindle Fibers? The structure that separates the chromosomes into the daughter cells.
What is Interphase? The period between cell divisions when growth and replacement occur in preparation for the next division.
What is Centrioles? A minute cylindrical organelle near the nucleus in animal cells.
What is Sexual Reproduction? Reproduction that includes two parent cells. The offspring has traits of both of the parents.
What is Asexual Reproduction? Reproduction that includes only on parent cell. The offspring is identical to the parent cell.
