Molecular Biology of the Cell is widely used in introductory courses at the university level, being considered as a reference in many libraries and laboratories around the world. The test bank was created with the philosophy that a good exam should require students to reflect upon and integrate information as a part of a sound understanding. Cells, Genomes, and the Diversity of Life The surface of our planet is populated by living things—organisms—curious, intricately organized chemical factories that take in matter from their surroundings and use these raw materials to generate copies of themselves.

approach, which quantifies how closely organisms are related to one another, allows us to identify the three major branches of life on Earth, eukaryotes, bacteria, and archaea—each with unique qualities.

Each nucleotide consists of a specific arrangement of about 35 covalently linked atoms, forming a sugar–phosphate molecule with a nitrogencontaining side group, or base, attached to it. We shall see that the familiar world of plants and animals—the focus of scientists for many centuries—makes up only a small slice of the complete diversity of life, the vast majority of which is invisible to the unaided human eye. The Digital and eTextbook ISBNs for Molecular Biology of the Cell (Seventh Edition) are 9780393884630, 0393884635 and the print ISBNs are 9780393884821, 0393884821. In different types of cells, this process of DNA replication occurs at different rates, with different controls to start it or stop it, and with different MBoC7 m1.

Nomenclature for Genes and Proteins Each species has its own conventions for naming genes; the only common feature is that they are always set in italics. For this reason, this section also includes an introduction to viruses, the ubiquitous parasites that have evolved to feed on cells.This base-pairing holds fresh monomers in place and thereby controls the selection of which one of the four monomers will next be added to a growing strand. This phenomenon of heredity is central to the definition of life: it distinguishes life from other processes, such as the growth of a crystal, or the burning of a candle, or the formation of waves on water, in which structures are generated without the same type of link between the peculiarities of parents and offspring.

Now, with expert-verified solutions from Molecular Biology of the Cell 7th Edition, you’ll learn how to solve your toughest homework problems.These monomers, chemical compounds known as nucleotides, have nicknames drawn from a four-letter alphabet—A, T, C, G—and they are strung together in a long linear sequence that encodes the hereditary information, just as the sequence of 1’s and 0’s encodes the information in a computer file. As we describe in Chapter 8, scientists can now rapidly read out the sequence of nucleotides in any DNA molecule and thereby determine the complete DNA sequence of any cell’s genome—the totality of its hereditary information embodied in the linear sequence of nucleo­ tides in its DNA. It must also express its information, by letting the information guide the synthesis of other molecules in the cell.
