Red text - write these extra explanations down *extra prof yip notes (unless they are highlights) Eubacteria - typical bacteria archaeabacteria e. coli - model organism, easier to grow and maintain, found in the gut. Methanococcus - hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the ocean. Methanobacteria - grow in anaerobic conditions and low ph (acidic) cow stomach. Typanosoma - african sleeping sickness, confusion, reduced coordination, fatigue (flies) Arise from a common ancestor cell but all have fundamental differences. Irregularly shaped; where the genetic material is localized. Plasma membrane - selective filter for outside; special particles that let only certain molecules; Have a cell wall - tough protective coat. Flagellum used for moving but not all of them have them. The building blocks of life page 6 microtubule. The membrane divides it into functional and structural organelles. Mitochondrion - powerhouse of the cell; harnesses o. Symbiosis - offered protection and use o to make atp.
