Chapter 3 The basic unit of life is the cell Have to know the 4 types of categories of biological molecules . Pg. 50 1. Carbohydrate s- Monosaccharide, disaccharide, polysaccharides.( glucose) immediate energy. 2. Lipid -s fats oils phospholipids. (Glycerol, fatty acid) long term energy storage. membrane 3.

Nucleus: Think of this as an egg inside the cell. This is a sphere-shaped structure contained by the nuclear membrane. It holds the nucleolus and controls most of the cell functions. It is in charge of protein photosynthesis and contains the plant's DNA. Nucleolus: Think of this as the egg yolk inside the egg. This is the round organelle that produces ribosomal RNA.

    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.
