  • Learning Target
    I can define and provide an example of the following: genotype, phenotype, dominant allele, recessive allele, codominant alleles, incompletely dominant alleles, homozygous, heterozygous, and carrier.

    I can describe the basic structure and function of DNA, mRNA, tRNA, amino aicds, polypeptides, and proteins (Protein Synthesis).
  • Learning Target
    I can describe the functions of all major cell organelles.
  • Learning Target
    Analyze the similarities and differences among plant versus animal cells, eukaryotic versus prokaryotic cells
  • Learning Target
