Structures of the Cell

Prepare a substantive response in which you address the following:

Part I: Compare and Contrast the working parts found in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. How do the structures of the cell organelles dictate their specific functions?

Part II: Scientists are learning to manipulate living cells in various ways, changing their genetic composition and the way they function. Some biotechnology companies have sought to patent their unique engineered cell lines. Do you think it is in society’s best interest to allow cells to be patented? Why or why not? Do you think the same patent rules should apply whether the cells originate from a human or from a bacterium?

Provide specific examples and references to the video in your response.
