A dichotomous key is a tool designed by scientists to help its users to identify a particular type of object and organisms based on physical characteristics. A dichotomous key is divided into two sections and it usually contains specific questions with two choices (yes or no) in each step. When a question is answered, the key guides the user to the next question to ask until the user is able to correctly identify the name of the unknown organism.

How has the nucleus in cells evolved?

Common parts of a cell

The cell is the building block of an organism, its smallest living unit. By definition, all cells have the following:

A cell membrane: As a barrier between the cell and its environment, the membrane provides structure, protection and control over the movement of materials in and out of the cell.Cytoplasm: This refers to the contents of the cell membrane excepting the nucleus. One of its main components is cytosol, a jelly-like substance which acts as protection and support for the remaining contents.DNA: Each cell contains genetic material. However, the way it is stored is one of the distinguishing factors between a eukaryote (a plant or animal cell for example) and a prokaryote (like a bacterium). These represent the two main types of cells. The former has a nucleus — for its DNA — as well as other organelles while the latter does not. Organelles are parts of a cell that have a specialised function and their own membranes.Nucleus

Describe one possible effect of a gene mutation in a body cell on an organism and one possible effect on the offspring of that organism

A gene mutation may result in an oncogene. So during that cell's replication the gate keeper genes will no longer be able to suppress it. This results in a mutated daughter cell.  If there is a subsequent mutation an a daughter cell, a tumor will be produced. 

Gene mutation can also cause mosaicism and result in different phenotypes
