Fish Genetics



Cells have a characteristic structure that is appropriate for performing their individual functions. Sperm cells, for example, have powerful flagella that allow them to swim through a female’s reproductive tract and find the egg. Nerve cells are elongated in shape in order to communicate signals between distant parts of the body. In this way, the different cells in the human body generally support the living individual in its activities (Chalfie et al. 1994).
