Historical highlights of cell biology A. Van Leewenhoek, R. Hook, M. Schleiden, T. Schwann, Virchow, L. Pasteur G. Mendel Basis of the cell theory, and its tenets Timeline of the origin of life Three major kingdoms & evidence for relatedness (nucleic acids, basic metabolic processes, later gene transfer) How did cells arise? Endosymbiosys, does it still occur? Cells: prokaryotic vs. eukaryotic Viruses – imitation of cell functions, by what characteristics? Differences between viruses and viroids Vorticella, Methanobacterium Archaea, Bacteria, Eukaria Cyanobacteria Eukaryote Precambrian Prokaryote Organelle Salmonella Bacillus Staphylococcus TMV (tobacco mosaic virus) Tenets of cell theory Virus (virion) vs Viroid Woese, C.

Topic 2. Review of Cell Structure and Types of molecules Ch. 2 Why does the size of a cell matter? What we see without aids, and with instruments Review of basic structures and function of animal and plant cells: cell membrane, cell wall, chloroplast, Golgi apparatus, endoplasmic reticulum: rough vs. smooth, lysosome, nucleus, nucleolus, mitochondrion, peroxisome, ribosome, vacuole Review properties of atoms, to molecules Chemical bonds and bond strength: covalent, non-covalent- hydrogen bonding, - ionic, -van der Waals forces What properties makes water so special and essential H 2 O is it on Mars, and why do we care?
