BIO 240 UOP Courses Material BIO 240 Week 1 DQ 1 Cells (UOP) BIO 240 Week 1 DQ 2 Virus (UOP) • What are some of the ways cells communicate similar to the ways we humans communicate with other people or with an organization? How are they different? • Would you consider a virus living or non-living? Why? How does this agree or disagree with classification scheme applied by the scientific community?
BIO 240 UOP Courses Material BIO 240 Week 1 Photosynthesis and Respiration Paper (UOP) BIO 240 Week 2 DQ 1 (UOP) • Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper summarizing the events of cellular respiration and photosynthesis and examine the relationship between the two.Include the following in your paper:- For photosynthesis, include a summary of the events in:- The Light Dependent Reaction • There is a fierce competition among individuals within any species, humans included, to gain access to reproductive privileges. The “fittest” – a term that signifies the largest, prettiest, and most sexually attractive members, succeed in predominantly mating and having offspring, while the less attractive ones often do not.

BIO 240 UOP Courses Material BIO 240 Week 3 DQ 1 (UOP) BIO 240 Week 3 DQ 2 (UOP) • Craig Venter made a new life form (a bacterium) from scratch – essentially from computer database, and a few bottles of chemicals:http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2010/0521/J.-Craig-Venter-Institute-creates-first-synthetic-life-formhttp://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/21/science/21cell.htmlIf these and other such DNA-based technologies become widely used, how might they change the way evolution proceeds, as compared with the natural evolutionary mechanisms of the past almost 4 billion years? • Is there danger of discrimination based on testing for “harmful” genes? Would you support cloning of life forms? How about a human clone? What policies can you suggest that would prevent or permit such practices?
