Build a model of a prokaryotic cell using any material of your choice. In your model be sure to include all the structures appropriate to your cell. You may model a bacterial cell or an archaea. You will model at least 4 structures in any model.

Next, build a model of a virus using the same type of materials. You may choose any type of virus but be sure you can illustrate the key features of a virus (head shape for example).

Once complete, take multiple photographs of your models from all angles. Include these images in a document that also contains the following completed table format. You may need to add rows to your table depending on the type of prokaryote you model.

Once your model is complete, write a brief description of your cell and your virus. Emphasize features that are absent in viruses that classify them as non-living. You can refer to specific structures in your table in this explanation.

Some suggestions for 3D models include Legos, a decorated cake with candy toppings, or standard Styrofoam base with appropriate pieces attached. You can also draw or illustrate a model.

  11. Mitosis BIOL 2401

    Mitosis is the shortest of the two stages in the cell cycle, occurring in somatic (nonsex) cells. During mitosis, two daughter cells result from the division of an original parent cell (Figure 3.2). Daughter cells and parent cells have the exact genetic information and therefore are identical in structure and function.

The predominantly single-celled organisms of the domains Bacteria and Archaea are classified as prokaryotes (pro- = before; -karyon- = nucleus). Animal cells, plant cells, fungi, and protists are eukaryotes (eu- = true).

    Cell Cycle. The period of changes that a cell encounters. Includes stages of interphase and cell division (mitosis). Cytokinesis. Not technically part of nuclear division. Physical separation of the cytoplasm and the cell membrane. Begins at late anaphase and continues through telophase. Interphase. Stage of cell growth and metabolic activities.

  16. 1.3: Mitosis

    Mitosis is divided into a series of phases—prophase, prometaphase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase—that result in the division of the cell nucleus. Karyokinesis is also called mitosis. Figure 1.3.3 1.3. 3: Karyokinesis (or mitosis) is divided into five stages—prophase, prometaphase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.
