  • Archaea [r]: A major group of numerous microorganisms fundamentally different from the bacteria and including many chemolithotrophs and extremophiles. [e]
  • Bacterial cell structure [r]: Morphological and genetic features of unicellular prokaryotic organisms characterized by the lack of a membrane-bound nucleus and membrane-bound organelles. [e]
  • Bacteria [r]: A major group of single-celled microorganisms. [e]
  • Biology [r]: The science of life — of complex, self-organizing, information-processing systems living in the past, present or future. [e]
  • Cell (biology) [r]: The basic unit of life, consisting of biochemical networks enclosed by a membrane. [e]
  • Cellular respiration [r]: A series of metabolic processes by which living cells produce energy through the oxidation of organic substances. [e]
  • Chloroplast [r]: The green organelles found in many higher plant cells and protists. Internal thylakoid membranes contain chlorophyll where photosynthesis takes place. [e]
  • Endosymbiotic theory [r]: Theory on the origins of mitochondria and plastids (e.g. chloroplasts), which are organelles of eukaryotic cells. [e]
  • Eukaryote [r]: An organism that is composed of one or more cells containing cell nuclei. [e]
  • Evolution [r]: A change over time in the proportions of individual organisms differing genetically. [e]
  • Glycolysis [r]: A biochemical pathway by which a molecule of glucose is oxidized to two molecules of pyruvate. [e]
  • Halobacterium NRC-1 [r]: A microorganism from the Archaea kingdom perfectly suited for life in highly saline environments giving biologists an ideal specimen for genetic studies. [e]
  • Horizontal gene transfer in prokaryotes [r]: Horizontal gene transfer (HGT; also called lateral gene transfer, LGT) is defined as movement of genes between different species, or across broad taxonomic categories. Prokaryotes are cells, such as bacteria, that do not have a nucleus enclosed by a nuclear membrae. Their DNA is in a region of the cell called the nucleiod, or nucleus-like material. [e]
  • Horizontal gene transfer [r]: Transfer of genetic material to a being other than one of the donor's offspring. [e]
  • Microbial metabolism [r]: The means by which a microbe obtains the energy and nutrients (e.g. carbon) it needs to live and propagate. [e]
  • Microbiology [r]: The study of microorganisms (overlapping with areas of virology, bacteriology, mycology, and parasitology). [e]
  • Microorganism [r]: A 'germ', an organism that is too small to be seen individually with the naked eye. [e]
  • Mitochondrion [r]: Structure, function, life cycle and evolutionary theories involving the origins and role of the mitochondrion. [e]
  • Model organism [r]: Species often used in research as models for the study of biological processes. [e]
  • Organism [r]: An individual living individual: a complex, adaptive physical system that acts a integrated unit that sustains metabolism and reproduces progeny that resemble it. [e]
  • Prokaryote phylogeny and evolution [r]: History of the origins of prokaryotes and the evolutionary processes that have affected bacteria. [e]
  • RNA world hypothesis [r]: Proposes that a world filled with life based on ribonucleic acid (RNA) predated current life based on deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). [e]
  • Species (biology) [r]: A fundamental unit of biological classification - a set of individual organisms that produce fertile offspring. [e]
  • Targeted gene replacement [r]: Technique in which cloned DNA is introduced into mammalian stem cell culture, via gene modification in vitro. [e]
  • Taxonomy of Archaea domain [r]: Is a taxonomic list of Archaea domain based on Garrity et al. (2007) and Euzeby (2008). [e]
  • Treponema pallidum [r]: The pathogen, a spirochete, which causes the infectious disease, syphilis. [e]
  • Virus (biology) [r]: A microscopic particle that can infect the cells of a biological organism and can reproduce only with the assistance of the cells it infects. [e]
