Subjects By Grade
High School - Science - AP Chemistry - Unit 3
Meiosis, Genetics, Replication to Translation
This unit covers Chapters 13-21 (Biology by Campbell and Reece). This unit starts with sex cell development, meiosis and its control. All Mendelian genetics and modes of inheritance is covered in this unit. This unit also includes, Crick's Dogma of replication, transcription and translation and the control of these processes. Basic techniques used in biotechnology are presented. Investigations in this Unit may include: 1) Cell Division: Mitosis and Meiosis, 2) Bacterial Transformation using a plasmid, 3) Restriction Enzyme Analysis using electrophoresis.

Enduring understandings (AP Biology curriculum, 2013): 1.A, 1.D, 2.A, 2.B, 2.E, 3.A, 3.B, 3.D, 4.A, 4.B, 4.C

 

1.A: Change in the genetic makeup of a population over time is evolution. 

1.B: Organisms are linked by lines of descent from common ancestry. 

1.C: Life continues to evolve within a changing environment. 

1.D: The origin of living systems is explained by natural processes. 

2.A: Growth, reproduction and maintenance of the organization of living systems require free energy and matter. 

2.B: Growth, reproduction and dynamic homeostasis require that cells create and maintain internal environments that are different from their external environments. 

2.C: Organisms use feedback mechanisms to regulate growth and reproduction, and to maintain dynamic homeostasis. 

2.D: Growth and dynamic homeostasis of a biological system are influenced by changes in the system’s environment. 

2.E: Many biological processes involved in growth, reproduction and dynamic homeostasis include temporal regulation and coordination. 

3.A: Heritable information provides for continuity of life. 

3.B: Expression of genetic information involves cellular and molecular mechanisms. 

3.C: The processing of genetic information is imperfect and is a source of genetic variation. 

3.D: Cells communicate by generating, transmitting and receiving chemical signals. 

3.E: Transmission of information results in changes within and between biological systems.

4.A: Interactions within biological systems lead to complex properties. 

4.B: Competition and cooperation are important aspects of biological systems. 

4.C: Naturally occurring diversity among and between components within biological systems affects interactions with the environment.
