  • cell structure
    • vacuole
      • full of sap to help keep the cell swollen
    • nucleus
      • contains genetic material , which controls the cell's activities

      • contain chlorophyll needed to absorb the sunlight for photosynthesis
    • cytoplasm
      • jelly-like material where the chemical reactions happen
    • mitochondria
      • where most of the energy is released in aerobic respiration - contain the enzyme needed for aerobic respiration
    • ribosomes
      • when protein synthesis happens
    • plasmids (bacteria)
      • genetic engineering rings of DNA
    • cell wall
      • provide protection and strengthens the cell
    • cell membrane
      • controls the entering in and the exiting out of the cell
