Big Idea #3: Living systems store, retrieve, transmit, and respond to information essential to life processes.
3A Heritable information provides for continuity of life.
3B Expression of information involves cellular and molecular mechanisms.
3C The processing of genetic information is imperfect and is a source of genetic variation.
3D Cells communicate by generating, transmitting and receiving chemical signals.
3E Transmission of information results in changes within and between biological systems.
