Chloroplast

Science / Marine Biology / Chloroplast: In eukaryotic organisms, the cellular organelle in which photosynthesis takes place

Chloroplast Chromosome

Science / Genetics / Chloroplast Chromosome: Circular dna found in the photosynthesizing organelle (chloroplast) of plants instead of the cell nucleus where most genetic material is located. MORE

Chloroplasts

Science / Biology / Chloroplasts: Disk-like organelles with a double membrane found in eukaryotic plant cells; contain thylakoids and are the site of photosynthesis. ATP is generated during photosynthesis by chemiosmosis. MORE

Grana

Science / Biology / Grana: A series of stacked thylakoid disks containing chlorophyll; found in the inner membrane of chloroplasts. MORE

Stroma

Science / Biology / Stroma: The matrix surrounding the grana in the inner membrane of chloroplasts. The area between membranes (thylakoids, grana) inside the chloroplast. MORE

Cytoplasmic Trait

Science / Genetics / Cytoplasmic Trait: A genetic characteristic in which the genes are found outside the nucleus, in chloroplasts or mitochondria. Results in offspring inheriting genetic material from only one parent. MORE

Chlorine (Cl)

Science / Periodic Table of Elements / Chlorine (Cl): Atomic number: 17, Atomic mass: 35.453 g.mol -1, Electronegativity: 3.0, Density: 3.21*10 -3 g.cm -3 at 20 °C, Melting point: -101 °C, Boiling point: -34.6 °C, Vanderwaals radius: 0.127 nm, Ionic r MORE
