Nervous System Organization (5)
Central Nervous System
The apex is a latin word known as the peak or summit. It is the lowest tip of the heart and is
formed mostly by the right ventricle. As it is not a blood vessel, no blood transport occurs in the
apex. Muscles in this part of the heart are m
Mitosis and Meiosis
1. If the differences between mitosis and meiosis were to be compared, then we would see
meiosis is of a longer length simply because of the due processes involved. Meiosis
involves two divisions from homologous pairs into singl
Lung cancer is essentially a malignant tumor that starts within the cells of the lungs. There are two types
of lung cancer: small cell and non-small cell lung cancers. Cells in the lung may change or mutate,
changes that may result in abnorma

DNA Study Notes
DNA vs RNA
- DNA and RNA dont have the same sugar in backbones
o DNA contains deoxyribose, less oxygen than ribose (in RNA)
- RNA contains only one strand whereas DNA has two strands
- DNA contains adenine (A), gu
