Genetic engineering
Genetic Engineering

  • Science of manipulating DNA and genes in order to change or create certain characteristics within an organism.


DNA

  • The foundation of life—it’s what makes you, you. DNA contains your genetic code


Genes
Genes

  • Segment of DNA

  • Creates certain characteristics in an organism

Hint: genes are what you inherit from your parents. My dad is short, so I’m short.


Cloning
Cloning

  • Making an exact copy of an organism by copying identical cells/DNA


Fossil
Fossil

  • Remains or impressions of plant/animal from a previous era


Paleontology
Paleontology

  • The study of previous life forms with fossil discovery

  • Provides information about evolution and creatures from looooong ago


Paleobotany
Paleobotany

  • Branch of paleontology which deals with plants and their fossil remains

  • Uses fossils to determine plants that existed during different periods of time


Mesozoic era
Mesozoic Era

  • The era which includes the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous Period.

Triassic-

Jurassic-

1st period of the Mesozoic Era. Appearance of first dinosaurs

Characterized by abundant volcanic activity

2nd period of the era. Referred to as “when dinosaurs ruled the earth” because they were the dominant species

Also the period in which dinosaurs became extinct


Vertebrate sounds like
Vertebrate (sounds like?)

  • A class of animals that have a backbone or spinal column


Mammals
Mammals

  • Organisms that give birth to young rather than laying eggs.

Helpful hint: They’re generally covered in hair


Reptiles
Reptiles

  • Cold blooded animals that lay eggs

Check out this inquisitive reptile

Actual nickname: “Jesus Lizard”

Bellowing Dinosaur

Hint: Generally slimy and/or scaly


Herbivore
Herbivore

  • A.K.A. vegetarians


Carnivore
Carnivore

  • Eats the flesh of other animals


Chromosome
Chromosome

  • The structure within a cell that contains the DNA


Embryo
Embryo

  • Earliest stage of development found in a plant seed or mammal uterus.
