cell if it is so small. What tools do they use and how long does it
2. Since mature red blood cells do not have a nucleus, do they still
have DNA? If not, are they still considered living?
3. Is there a book or organization responsible for keeping track of
all known living things? If so, how do they categorize and
confirm when new organisms are discovered?

and dividing, especially during fetal development.
8. Is it possible to create or sort male sperm with a single sex
chromosome to ensure the sex of your baby?
9. Since everyone has a different genetic makeup, how do
geneticists know they have found the correct gene they are
looking for when they study the genome?
When studies talk about “more connections being created
in the brain” is there an actual mass increase of the brain? Do
the brain cells grow or divide more to create these connections?
