August 26 th , 2011 Biology 311C Lecture 2 Spontaneous generation or abiogenesis refers a supposed process by which life would systematically emerge from sources other than seeds, eggs or parents. In other words, this could be described as a process where life emerges from non-living matter. You have atoms of carbons to form complex biomolecules. Explain why ‘life’ is an emergent property is: properties that emerge from the interactions of similar components. It would give rise to something more complex. At which biological level can it ‘emerge’?: At the cell level. The hierarchy or level of chemical and biological organization (low to high): atoms (carbon), biomolecules, organelles, cells, tissues, organ, organ system, and organism.

Unformatted text preview: • Lipids and organelles fit together because of membranes. Many plasma lipids form to create organelles. • Mitochondria create ATP in the heart which is what the muscle cells need to contract. Many of these cells form tissue. Multiple tissues form an organ (the heart). • Life here on Earth depends on water (H2O). Emergent properties of water: atom; hydrogen (H) and Oxygen (O), molecule; Water (H2O). • Malaria is moved from human to human by mosquito. It does not infect the mosquito, but is fatal to humans. • **The level of biological organization would malaria prevention programs be most effective would be at the community level....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
