    Homework 1 Question 2. Phagocytosis is when larger solid particles are taken into the cell by being surrounded by the plasma membrane and passing through. Endocytosis is when smaller more soluble particles are taken in by the plasma membrane forming a sort of hole and then the hole is pinched off containing the smaller particles turning into a vesicle which is taken where it needs to go.

The basis of the central dogma of molecular biology is the expression of the genetic information in any call. It is a universal process that occurs in every cell. The genetic information is stored in the DNA. During gene expression DNA is transcript to RNA and these RNA are transcribed to proteins.

    The term biology is derived from the Greek word βίος, bios, "life" and the suffix -λογία, -logia, "study of."[3][4] The Latin form of the term first appeared in 1736 when Swedish scientist Carl Linnaeus (Carl von Linné) used biologi in his Bibliotheca botanica. It was used again in 1766 in a work entitled Philosophiae naturalis sive physicae: tomus III, continens geologian, biologian, phytologian generalis, by Michael Christoph Hanov, a disciple of Christian Wolff.
