1

Genome

An organism's entire set of DNA

2

Proteome

Is all of the protein that DNA expresses

3

DNA

a biochemical that stores the information that each cell needs to produce proteins

4

What did the Hershey/Chase experiment prove

a bacteriophage( a virus that infects bacteria) has a protein coating with a DNA core. When the virus infects a bacteria cell, it injects its DNA into the bacterium ( The viral DNA directs bacterium to use its own energy and raw materials to manufacture more virus particles, which will then burst from the cell

5

the "blender experiments"

Radioactive protein and radioactive DNA were both injected into bacteria then blended at high speeds showed that the R/a showed the solution was r/a but the bacteria dan was not. But, the r/a virus dna showed that the bacteriadna was r/a and the solution was not . Supporting that the genetic material was the Dna not the protein shell.
