Warm UP. Illustrate how the chromosome number in a sexually reproducing organism with 8 chromosomes remains constant from one generation to the next by drawing a model of meiosis and showing the TOTAL number of chromosomes in each stage, the steps, and the products for male and female. Warm Up.
a genetic code (like a blueprint) for making new cell parts, new cells, or an entirely new organism.
-Adenine always equals amount of Thymine.
A = T
-Guanine always equals amount of Cytosine.
G = C
The complementary strand/sequence to
G-A-T-T-A-C-A would be…
Remember Chargaff’s Rule:
Genes: sections of DNA on chromosomes that
control production of proteins for specific traits such as:
hair color, eye color, dimples, freckles….
