Often circular segments of DNA that can replicate outside of the chromosomes. Generally found in bacteria.
× 37
A process defining organisms that grow and adapt to stimuli while maintaining a state of organization and energy production and being capable of reproduction.
× 36
caused by the invasion of by pathogenic organisms (bacteria, viruses or worms) into a host. These pathogenic organisms live and multiply in its host and cause diseases by this.

Computer programs that aid in the storage, processing, and analysis of biological data.
× 36
The exchange of gases across organs that facilitate transport of the gases to and from the cells of the organism.
× 36
The processes by which gene products (largely RNA and proteins) are increased or decreased.
× 35
Biologically-synthesized chemicals (or their derivatives) that cause growth suppression or death of bacteria. Other anti-microbials are often also considered under the class antibiotics these days.
× 35
Division of a diploid cell to produce four haploid cells for the purposes of reproduction.
× 34
produced during transcription before it leaves the nucleus to be be translated by a ribosome. This produces a sequence of nucleic acids for which mRNA is considered the template.
× 34

× 34
Microanatomy of cells and tissues
× 33
A physiological state of being: Good health refers to a state where the cellular/organismal physiology is normal; i.e. devoid of any deleterious/pathological condition such as a disease.
