1. Each daughter cell resulting from mitotic cell division has the exactly same genetic composition.
TRUE. Mitosis produces two genetically identical daughter cells from a single parent cell.
2. Apoptosis is programmed cell suicide; cancer cells do not undergo this process.
TRUE. Cells generally undergo apoptosis after a certain age. Mutations in the gene prevents apoptosis and instead allows the cell to divide uncontrollably.
3. Introns represent a genome scrap yard that provides DNA segments for genome evolution and a variety of small RNA molecules.
TRUE. Introns are mRNA sequences that are removed after transcription. Alternative splicing allows for the translation of different proteins from a single mRNA transcript.
