Discuss the selected characteristics of living cells

Title: Report Writing

You are required to write an academic report which covers the sections outlined below.

SECTION 1 -

Show that you understand the cell by providing written commentary which covers the following criteria. You should use diagrams, and/ or comparison tables, to support your commentary where appropriate.

• Discuss the selected characteristics of living cells.

• Compare and contrast prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, and distinguish them from viruses.

• Discuss eukaryotic sub-cellular structure and organelles.

• Explain how stem cells differ from differentiated cells.

 

SECTION 2 -

Demonstrate that you understand cellular metabolism through explanation of the following areas. Include diagrams to support your commentary where appropriate.

• The role of the cell membrane in regulating how nutrients are gained and waste products lost.

How animal cells use nutrients to provide the energy for growth, movement, and cell division.

• The role of nucleic acids in the nucleus and cytoplasm.

You must ensure that your explanation of the above areas includes discussion about the synthesis of proteins.

 

SECTION 3 -

Demonstrate that you understand how cells grow and divide through explanation of the following areas. You should use diagrams, and/ or comparison tables, to support your commentary where appropriate.

• The generation of specialised tissues from embryonic stem cells.

• The importance of interphase and factors that initiate cell division.

• How the same genetic information is received by each daughter cell.

This section also requires you to compare and contrast cancer cells with normal cells.
