1.2 Like begets like

It is possible to follow a character, such as eye colour or hair colour in humans, that is handed down from generation to generation. Such characters are said to be inherited characters (or heritable characters) and are determined by genes. A gene can be considered as a unit of inheritance, which determines a particular character and which is passed on from parent to offspring.

Genes maintain the differences between species, such as oak and human, but they also contribute

1.3 The very early Universe

Time: <10−36 s

Temperature: >1028 K

Energy: >3 × 1015 GeV (i.e. >3 × 1024 eV)

At the very earliest times in the history of the Universe, we can only presume that a superunification of the four interactions was in operation. Unfortunately, no reliable theory of superunification is yet available, so nothing can be said about the contents or behaviour of the Universe in its earliest moments. Indeed,

3.7.1 Summary of Sections 3.4 to 3.7

Hair cells are found in the organ of Corti and run the length of the basilar membrane. They transform mechanical energy into neural signals.

When the basilar membrane vibrates in response to sound, hair cells located at the site of maximal vibration on the basilar membrane are stimulated. This means that the mechanical properties of the membrane allow the auditory system to distinguish one frequency from another by the location on the membrane that is maximally excited by a particular f
