Fun and Useful Mnemonics Suggestions for Biology Students 

Taxonomic Rank 

Taxonomic rank refers to the sequence of a group of organisms in a taxonomic hierarchy. They are Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species. A mnemonic for this order is Do Kindly Put Cover On Fresh Green Spinach

Stages of Cell Cycle 

Every organism, from insects to animals and humans to plants and bacteria, has a life cycle. The cell cycle stands for the life cycle of a cell that replicates all of its genetic material and splits into two identical cells. Stages of the cell cycle are classified into G1 Phase (Growth Phase 1), S Phase (DNA Synthesis), G2 Phase (Growth Phase 2), M Phase (Mitosis), and C Phase (Cytokinesis).

Phases of Mitosis 

Mitosis is defined as a type of cell division wherein one cell (the mother) divides to generate two new cells (the daughters) genetically identical to itself. Mitosis’s phases involve Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, and Cytokinesis.

Male Reproductive System and Development 

The male reproductive system is all about a grouping of organs that structure a male human being’s reproductive and urinary systems. The male reproductive system and development structure include Seminiferous tubule, Epididymis, Vas deferens, Ejaculatory duct, Urethra, and Penis.

Different Types of White Blood Cells 

White blood cells belong to our immune system. These cells aid the body to fight infection and defend against diseases. Different types of blood cells run in the body. Generally, a type of blood cell is made in the bone marrow and found in the blood and lymph tissue. These blood cells are Neutrophils (60%), Lymphocytes (30%), Monocytes (6%), Eosinophils (3%), and Basophils (1%).

Vitamin Table 

Vitamins are organic substances humans need in small quantities. They are required for normal cell function, growth, and development. A person requires a different number of vitamins and each vitamin plays a crucial role in the body. Different types of vitamins are Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin (Vitamin B3), Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), and Biotin (Vitamin B7), Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12).

Processes of Living Organisms 

Living organisms pose certain features that differentiate them from non-living organisms. The processes of life that define living things are Movement, Respiration, Sensation, Growth, Reproduction, Excretion, and Nutrition. Remember these processes with MRS GREN

Components of Environment 

The amalgamation of biotic, abiotic, and cultural components constitutes the environment surrounding us and other organisms. Biotic components encompass all forms of life such as animals, plants, micro-organisms, etc. Abiotic components include air, water, soil, light, temperature, etc. that affects human beings.

Human Genetic Disorders 

One or more abnormalities mainly cause a genetic disorder in the human genomes. Various genetic disorders and new genetic disorders are continuously being defined in the medical literature. Some common human genetic diseases are Alkaptonuria, Sickle Cell Anaemia, Thalassemia, Phenylketonuria, and Cystic Fibrosis.
