Mitosis

Mitosis

  • The form of cell divisionby which a eukaryotic somatic cell (body cell) duplicates.

  • Mitosis is asexual reproduction.

  • Cell division is the continuation of life based on the reproduction of cells.

What is a chromosome

What Is A Chromosome?

DNA double helix

  • A chromosome is a very long, continuous piece of DNA.

  • Chromosomes contain many genes.

  • Genesare the units of heredity in organisms.


Meiosis

Meiosis

  • Meiosis is the process of cell division that only occurs in gametes or sex cells(egg & sperm).

  • During meiosis, a cell produces 4 gametes with half the number of chromosomes in each gamete.

  • The traits are distributed randomly in the newly formed gametes.

Genes & Heredity

Why Do I Look Like My Parents???


Question

Question:

Why Don’t You Look Like a rhinoceros?


Answer

Answer:

Because _______.

Heredity is the passing of traits from parents to offspring.

Traits and characteristics pass from parents to offspring through genes.


Genetics terms

Genetics Terms

Alleles: the different forms of a gene.

Dominant allele: an allele whose trait always shows up when it is present.

Recessive allele: an allele that is masked when a dominant allele is present.


Homozygous vs heterozygous

Homozygous vs. Heterozygous

If both the alleles inherited by the zygote(fertilized egg) for a particular characteristic are the same they are called homozygous.

If they are different from each other they are called heterozygous.


Homologous chromosomes what the

Homologous Chromosomes? What the …

Each set of chromosome is a homologous pair

Homologouschromosomes – chromosomes which contain the same genes, one from each parent

Homologous chromosomes look alike with similar information stored on them

One member of each homologous pair is inherited from each parent through egg or sperm.

Dominant allele vs recessive allele

Dominant Allele vs. Recessive Allele


Genotype phenotype

Genotype & Phenotype

A set of alleles inherited by an individual is called a genotype.

The way the genes express themselves in the individual's appearance is their phenotype.


Dominant recessive traits

Dominant & Recessive Traits

Some traits show more often than other traits.

The traits that show often are called dominant traits.

Those traits that don’t show often are recessive traits.


Genotype phenotype1

Genotype & Phenotype

Both mother and father are heterozygous for tongue rolling.

Genotype: heterozygous alleles (one dominant & one recessive)

Phenotype:

Ability to roll tongue

Some Dominant Traits


Punnett square

Punnett square

Punnett Squares are diagrams used to help us to figure out how inherited traits (characteristics) will be distributed

Dominant trait is written by capital letter (A)

Recessive trait is written by lower case letter (a)


Punnett square1

Punnett square

Both parents birds are homozygous, with the red bird having 2 dominant alleles, and the blue bird having 2 recessive alleles.

There is only one possible genotype for all the offspring, and that is heterozygous.

What is the phenotype of the offspring? ______


Practice with punnett square

Practice with Punnett Square

In rabbits, black fur is dominant to white fur. A male rabbit with BB genotype and a female with a Bb genotype are crossed.

What is their phenotype?

What are the possible genotypes and phenotypes of the offspring? (Show using a Punnett square)

What is the percent chance for each type?

Cell division

Inside the nucleus of a cell long strings of DNA are coiled up and spooled onto chromosomes, and on each chromosome there are several thousand genes - shorter sections of DNA which act as a code for a particular characteristic. Since we inherit particular chromosomes through the egg and sperm, we also inherit the particular characteristics coded for by the genes on those chromosomes.
