Emily Lin 1/18/10F 7.1, K 8.1, 8.2, 8.4, 8.5, 8.7The main ideas in 7.1 addressed the differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, explaining how their differing structures affect the way they work. For example, one of the biggest differences being that prokaryotes do not contain a membrane bound nucleus or all the internal membranes and compartmentalized organelles that eukaryotes do, since they aren’t as large or as complex. This section also discussed all the different functions of different eukaryotic structures and also compared the structures of plant and animal cells. There exists similar structures in eukaryotic plant and animal cells with nearly the same function, for example, both the mitochondria, in animal cells, and chloroplasts, in plants, are responsible for producing energy to maintain the organism through cellular respiration for one and photosynthesis for the other. The section also mentions using centrifuges and electron microscopy to study cells.
