Genetics& Heredity



Who was gregor mendel3 l.jpg
Who was Gregor Mendel?

  • Austrian monk who studied mathematics and science

  • As a boy he could predict the possible types of flowers and fruits that would result from crossbreeding two plants in his father’s garden


Who was gregor mendel4 l.jpg
Who was Gregor Mendel?

  • Curiosity about the connection between the color of a pea flower and the type of seed that same plant produced inspired him to begin experimenting with garden peas in 1856.

  • Made careful use of scientific methods, which resulted in the first recorded study of how traits pass from one generation to the next.


What is genetics l.jpg
What is GENETICS?


What is genetics6 l.jpg
What is GENETICS?

The study of how traits are inherited through the interactions of genes.



What is a gene8 l.jpg
What is a GENE?

  • The material that controls which traits are expressed in an organism

  • Genes come in pairs and offspring inherit one copy of each gene from each parent


Define the following terms l.jpg
Define the following terms:

  • Heredity

  • Allele

  • Trait


Define heredity l.jpg
Define HEREDITY

The passing of traits from parent to offspring


Define allele l.jpg
Define ALLELE

  • The different forms of a trait that a gene may have

  • One form of a gene


Define trait l.jpg
Define TRAIT

  • Ways of looking, thinking, or being

  • Traits that are genetic are passed down through the genes from parents to offspring


Describe recessive l.jpg
Describe RECESSIVE


Describe recessive14 l.jpg
Describe RECESSIVE

  • A trait that is covered over, or dominated, by another form of that trait and seems to disappear

  • Hidden when the other copy of the gene contains the dominant allele.

  • A recessive allele shows up only when there is no dominant allele present

  • Shown with a lower-case letter



What is homozygous16 l.jpg
What is HOMOZYGOUS?

  • Both alleles [forms of the gene] are the same

  • When offspring inherit two dominant genes, (one dominant gene from each parent) they are said to be homozygous dominant

  • When offspring inherit two recessive genes, (one recessive gene from each parent) they are said to be homozygous recessive


What is heterozygous l.jpg
What is HETEROZYGOUS?


What is heterozygous18 l.jpg
What is HETEROZYGOUS?

  • When alleles occur in different forms

  • When offspring inherit one dominant gene and one recessive gene, they are said to be heterozygous

  • Since the dominant gene will be expressed, they are said to be heterozygous dominant


Describe co dominance l.jpg
Describe CO-DOMINANCE


Describe co dominance20 l.jpg
Describe CO-DOMINANCE

  • When an organism has two different alleles for a gene that does not follow the dominant/recessive pattern

  • The organism shows a trait that is a blend of the traits represented by the two alleles

  • Also called INCOMPLETE DOMINANCE


Describe co dominance21 l.jpg
Describe CO-DOMINANCE

For example:

The gene for the color of some flowers has one allele for red and one for white. When both alleles are present, neither is dominant, and the flower color is pink


Describe dominant l.jpg
Describe DOMINANT


Describe dominant23 l.jpg
Describe DOMINANT

  • A trait that covers over, or dominates, another form of that trait

  • Trait that always shows up, even when only one of the two alleles is in the dominant form

  • Shown by a capital letter


Define genotype l.jpg
Define GENOTYPE


Define genotype25 l.jpg
Define GENOTYPE

An organism's genetic makeup


Define phenotype l.jpg
Define PHENOTYPE


Define phenotype27 l.jpg
Define PHENOTYPE

Outward physical appearance and behavior of an organism


What is a punnett square l.jpg
What is a PUNNETT SQUARE?


What is a punnett square29 l.jpg
What is a PUNNETT SQUARE?

  • A tool to predict the probability of certain traits in offspring that shows the different ways alleles can combine

  • A way to show phenotype & genotype

  • A chart that shows all the possible combinations of alleles that can result when genes are crossed


What is a punnett square30 l.jpg
What is a PUNNETT SQUARE?

  • Letters stand for dominant and recessive alleles

  • An uppercase letter stands for a dominant allele

  • Lowercase letters stand for recessive alleles

List the 3 principles of heredity l.jpg
List the 3 Principles of Heredity


List the 3 principles of heredity33 l.jpg
List the 3 Principles of Heredity

  • Traits are controlled by alleles on chromosomes

  • An allele’s effect is dominant or recessive

  • When a pair of chromosomes separate during meiosis the different alleles for a trait move into separate sex cells


What is meant by multiple alleles l.jpg
What is meant by MULTIPLE ALLELES?


What is meant by multiple alleles35 l.jpg
What is meant by MULTIPLE ALLELES?

  • A trait that is controlled by more than two alleles is said to be controlled by multiple alleles

  • Traits controlled by multiple alleles produce more than three phenotypes of that trait


What is meant by multiple alleles36 l.jpg
What is meant by MULTIPLE ALLELES?

For Example:

The alleles for blood types in humans are called A, B, and O

The O allele is recessive to both the A and B alleles


What is meant by multiple alleles37 l.jpg
What is meant by MULTIPLE ALLELES?

When a person inherits one A allele and one B allele for blood type, both alleles are expressed

The person has the blood phenotype AB


What is meant by multiple alleles38 l.jpg
What is meant by MULTIPLE ALLELES?

A person with phenotype A blood inherited an A and an O allele (AO)

~OR~

an A and an A allele (AA)


What is meant by multiple alleles39 l.jpg
What is meant by MULTIPLE ALLELES?

Someone with phenotype B blood has the genotype BB or BO

This person inherited either a B and an O allele

~OR~

Two B alleles


What is meant by multiple alleles40 l.jpg
What is meant by MULTIPLE ALLELES?

A person with phenotype O blood has the genotype OO


What is polygenic inheritance l.jpg
What is POLYGENIC INHERITANCE?


What is polygenic inheritance42 l.jpg
What is POLYGENIC INHERITANCE?

  • Occurs when a group of gene pairs acts together to produce a trait

  • The effects of many alleles produces a wide variety of phenotypes
