Ideally you want a high ratio) ▯ ▯ All living organisms have 2x stranded DNA ▯ Characteristics of Cells: ▯ ▯ -Thyomargarita Namibiensis – makes multiple copies of its genome ▯ -when a cell gets too big it needs to control its cytoplasm so it regenerates ** ▯ -it stores limited resources, that is why it gets so big (lives in desert ) ▯ -vesicles have lipid membranes around them so it has big surface area ▯ -Salacious crumb ▯ ▯ Slide 5: ▯ ▯ Microbial cell membranes & walls ▯ ▯ -All living organisms have a cell membrane ▯ HMWK (where does DNA come from?) ▯ Protocells – what came about before cells, before cell life
