Cells: Life needs to attend to two concerns: the passing on of genetic information and the capture of energy. Both require having some control over the environment -- and that is why life forms are made up of cells. A cell is a tiny package that keeps the genetic information (the chromosomes) together and stores and transforms chemicals that provide energy. A cell regulates what comes into and goes out of itself by regulating what passes through the cell wall: it controls its interior environment.



Standard 09: CELLS, TISSUES, AND ORGANS: Students explain the structure, functions, and reproduction of living cells.
