Learning Objectives Identify or recall the different structural components and reproductive strategies present in prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and viruses. Given data about an organism, apply your knowledge of prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and viruses to determine what the organism is. Explain why various treatment methods work to specifically kill one class of organisms while remaining harmless to human cells or other organisms. Understand the evidence supporting the endosymbiotic theory. (That membrane-enclosed organelles found in eukaryotes originated as free-living prokaryotes that were engulfed and then maintained because they established a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with their host cell. Given evidence about the commonalities among 2

Take Two and Call Me in the Morning Well, Becky thought. Being a dorm counselor for freshmen was not going to be that bad. She got a free room for the year and the food was plentiful - free steaks last week at an outdoor BBQ followed by a hay ride in a horse-drawn wagon in their welcome celebration. But then again, it wasn’t perfect: she had ended up covered in bug bites. Some of the students got sick from eating steak that was burned on the outside and raw in the middle.

“What do you want me to do?” Becky asked. “I’m freaking out!” Ann answered. “Forget about the mess, just help me figure out what to tell them at the health center. I don’t know what she’s been exposed to. Or what we’ve been exposed to for that matter!

Then we can start taking something right away to keep from getting it, too.” “I don’t care what you do. Let’s just get her to the health center now! My uncle is a physician there, and I know that he can help.” 5
