List of Biology mnemonics to help you study Biology easier.

Biology Mnemonics list

In this post we have collected a list of Biology mnemonics for you from  various sources to help you make your study biology easier. We hope these biology study tips will save you some time and help you study biology better.

Learning new concepts in Biology can be difficult but with the help of some cleverly formed mnemonics studying biology can be made easy.

Remember you can develop your own Biology Mnemonics or modify the ones we have provided to help you better learn Biology. Mnemonics are meant to help you remember long term and not just memorize for a test and forget about it. If you take the time to practice these biology mnemonics, they will help you build strong fundamentals of biology and build a lifetime understanding of some of the most important concepts of Biology.

The 4 Stages of Mitosis

 

1) PMAT: The four stages of mitosis (in order):

For: Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase

2)ProMote Another Tadpole

Meiosis

“PMAT x2″

Prophase I, Metaphase I, Anaphase I, Telophase I,

Prophase II, Metaphase II, Anaphase II, Telophase II,

(Note in Meiosis: 4 haploid daughter cells instead of 2 diploid daughter cells)

 

Stages of embryonic development:

Zygote, Morula, Blastula, Gastrula, Neurla.

Biology Mnemonics for the four amine bases in the DNA structure

At The Girl’s Club = AT + GC

Adenine pairs with Thymine

Guanine pairs with Cytosine

Stages of Cell Cycle

Go Sally Go, Make Chicken

G1 PHASE (GROWTH PHASE 1)
S PHASE (DNA SYNTHESIS)
G2 PHASE (GROWTH PHASE 2)
M PHASE(MITOSIS)
C PHASE(CYTOKINESIS)

Types of blots:

SNOW= DROP( Match first letter of first word to first letter of second)

SOUTHERN=DNA
NORTHERN=RNA
WESTERN=PROTEIN

Molecular Genetics

  • “EXons EXpressed, INtrons IN the trash”
    • DNA expression into mature mRNA

    “CUT the PY”

    • Cytosine, Uracil, and Thiamine are PYrimidines (one-ring structures)

    “GAPur”

    • Guanine and Adenine are PURines (two-ring structures)

    “All Tigers Can Growl”

    • Adenine bonds to Thymine; Cytosine bonds to Guanine

    Or, “Pure Silver Taxi”

    • Purines, A and G, bond to pyrimidines, T and C, respectively
