They can alter gene expression in response to environmental signals. D. A and C E. All of the above 7. Both prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes have DNA molecules that are considerably longer then the cells (or organelles) that contain them, but they have evolved different strategies to deal with this problem. Which of the following statements is NOT TRUE A. Prokaryotes rely on supercoiling to package their DNA B. Prokaryotes have histones C. Eukaryotes rely on higher order chromatin packaging D. Eukaryotes have histones E. Both rely on catalysts to carry out this packaging 8. Prokaryotes exist in every imaginable environment on earth including freshwater and high salinity.

Prokaryotes synthesize compounds to balance osmolarity D. A and B E. All of the above (ABC) 9. Genetic drift is the process by which the frequency of various alleles (forms of a gene) change over time due to random processes (sampling errors – stochastic death).
