Fungilike protocists.


The writer could assert Taxonomy. Which is responsible for many scientific classifications and influences in various field of life sciences or biology.  Evidences that Taxonomy uses to group or categorizes species range from 

1.       
"Fossil Records
 
2.       
Comparative anatomy
 
3.       
Comparative embryology
 
4.       Biochemical information 
5.       
Cellular structure
 
6.       
Behavior

We also suggest that taxonomy has played various roles mainly in many aspects in Zoology, Botany, Anatomy and Physiology –aspects that include animal and human structures and functions. As the biotic community is so diverse it is classified to Biodiversity and the existence of properly assorting by set standard.

Human growth hormone is genetically engineered and inserted into human tissue to help stimulate growth in people with dwarfism. What are possible concerns that scientists have about the long-term effects of this process? whether it will mutate whether it will result in allergens how it will impact nutrition how it will enhance disease resistance

I believe the answer is "how it will enhance disease resistance".
When something is used to fight any sort of disorder,mutation,bacteria,ect,...sometimes the thing you are trying to help will mutate as it adapts and develops a stronger resistance to the thing used to help.

Which statements about cells are true? a. Cells are the basic unit of all living things. b. Cells have unique functions and features. c. All cells have some recognizable similarities. d. Every single cell works like a small factory. e. Cells follow a genetic DNA blueprint to construct an organism. f. Cells are composed of different parts called organelles

Answer: All the statements that are provided here are true when a cell is taken into consideration.

Explanation: The cells are known to be the basic structure and functional unit of the body. They have their unique functions based on the different organs in which they are located.

There are some recognizable similarities like structure for the cells. The cells need energy for working and it acts as a small factory. The replication of DNA acts as a blueprint to construct new cells to form an organism.

Every cell of the body function with the help of some small organelles like Golgi apparatus, mitochondria et cetera.

Which of the following statements is false? The number of chromosomes is different in different organisms. There are more genes in a cell than there are chromosomes. A single gene can only influence a single trait. The karyotypes for a male human and a female human look different.

Answer:

The false statement is "A single gene can only influence a single trait".

Explanation:

A single gene can control or influence one or more than one trait. The ability of a single gene to control or affect more than one character or trait is called pleiotropy. However, according to one gene-one enzyme hypothesis gene act through enzyme production that each gene is responsible for single enzyme that affects a single step in a metabolic process.

In cladistic analysis, similar genes that appear in dissimilar organisms, indicate that they share a common ____________________.

The answer is ancestor.

Common ancestor is an ancestral organism that two or more descendant lineages have in common. If organisms are not similar, but still have similar genes, that indicates that they share the common ancestor. The more basic the common genes are, their common ancestor is more close to the last universal common ancestor (LUCA).

QUESTION POSTED AT 22/01/2020 - 01:12 AM

Karyotypes can be studied to determine an organism’s chromosomal makeup and to detect genetic defects. Patau syndrome occurs when an individual has an extra copy of chromosome 13, giving them three copies. Symptoms of Patau syndrome include extra digits, seizures, and cleft palate. Which word would geneticists use to describe the cause of Patau syndrome?

The answer is trisomy 13.


Trisomy 13 is a condition in which an extra copy of chromosome 13 is present. Instead of two chromosomes 13 in a cell, there are three chromosomes. This is a consequence of a failure of chromosome 13 to separate during the gamete development. Thus, an egg cell or a sperm cell will have two instead of one chromosome 13 and after a cross with normal gamete cell, a zygote will have three chromosomes 13.

A breeder wants to make a pedigree chart of male horses to avoid breeding males that have a defective gene. What symbol would the horse breeder use to show a male who is affected by a defective gene?

The correct answer for this question is "shaded square." The symbol that would the horse breeder use to show a male who is affected by a defective gene is the shaded square. Pedigree charts use shaded symbols to show organisms that have a particular trait, such as a defective gene, being traced in the chart.
