Discussion 1 Biology class

Mitosis provides asexual reproduction in most unicellular eukaryotes.  Multicellular eukaryotes become multicellular via this process, and many multicellular species are capable of asexual reproduction, producing "clones" of the parent plant, fungus, or animal.  DNA provides the "blueprint" for cellular structure & function.  

An interesting "environmental" change occurs during development - identical cells, by virtue of their position in a forming embryo (plant OR animal) & their interactions with neighboring cells become "tissues".  Each tissue is specialized for function; while the nucleus contains all the genes of the entire organism, a tissue cell will only express (use) a subset of those genes.  For instance, only plant leaves make mesophyll cells that contain abundant chloroplasts for photosynthesis, and only mammalian red blood cells make hemoglobin to carry oxygen.  Our bodies are tiny ecosystems, with each type of cell doing its part to enhance our survival!

Thinking of the ecosystem as an organism - what specialized DNA-environment interactions are required to complete a food web?  How is asexual reproduction advantageous to productivity & recycling nutrients/raw materials?   What other connections do you see?


Discussion 2 Marketing class
