Explain the postulates of the cell theory Demonstrates understanding of cell structure and functions Describe the structure and function of major and subcellular organelles Describe the structure and function of major and subcellular organelles Distinguish prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells according to their distinguishing features Classify different cell types (plant/animal tissues) and specify the function(s) of each Describe some cell modifications that lead to adaptation to carry out specialized functions (e.g., microvilli, root hair) Characterize the phases of the cell cycle and their control points Describe the stages of mitosis/meiosis given 2n=6 Discuss crossing over and recombination in meiosis Explain the significance or applications of mitosis/meiosis Identify disorders and diseases that result from the malfunction of the cell during the cell cycle Describe the structural components of the cell membrane Relate the structure and composition of the cell membrane to its function Explain transport mechanisms in cells (diffusion osmosis, facilitated transport, active transport) Differentiate exocytosis and endocytosis Explain coupled reaction processes and describe the role of atp in energy coupling and transfer Describe the major features and chemical events in photosynthesis and respiration Explain the importance of chlorophyll and other pigments Describe the patterns of electron flow through light reaction events Describe the significant events of the calvin cycle .differentiate aerobic from anaerobic respiration Explain the major features and sequence the chemical events of cellular respiration Distinguish major features of glycolysis, krebscycle, electron transport system, and chemiosmosis Describe reactions that produce and consume atp Describe the role of oxygen in respiration and describe pathways of electron flow in the absence of oxygen Compute the number of atps needed or gained in photosynthesis and respiration Explain the advantages and disadvantages of fermentation and aerobic respiration Categorize the biological molecules(lipids, carbohydrates, proteins, and nucleic acids) according to their structure and function Explain the role of each biological molecule in specific metabolic processes Describe the components of an enzyme Explain oxidation/reduction reactions Determine how factors such as ph, temperature, and substrate affect enzyme activity
