Question of the DAY DEC 6

  • Which cells are responsible for the passing on of genetic information from parent to offspring?

  • A. Somatic cells

  • B. Diploid cells

  • C. Gametes

  • D. Cancer cells

Do now dec 6


  • Work in groups of 3 to complete the DO NOW

  • Create a list of physical characteristics you have in common with your group.

  • Consider things like eye and hair color, style/texture of hair, shape of nose/ears, and so on.

  • Why do we all look different from each other?

Do now answered


  • We all have different parents.

  • Our parents have their own physical characteristics that are expressed.

  • These characteristics have been inherited from their parents as you have inherited characteristics from your parents.

11 1 the work of gregor mendel

11-1: The Work of Gregor Mendel

  • heredity: set of characteristics an organism receives from its parents

  • genetics: study of heredity

Gregor mendel

Gregor Mendel

  • born in 1822

  • studied pea plants and how they reproduced

Reproduction in pea plants

Reproduction in Pea Plants

  • pollen is the male sex cell

  • eggs are the female sex cell

  • reproduce by self pollination: process in whichpollen fertilizes an egg from the same plant

  • reproduces by cross pollination: process in which pollen from one plant fertilizes an egg from another plant

Mendel s first experiment

Mendel’s First Experiment

  • prevented flowers from self pollinating

  • controlled cross pollination

  • cut off male parts of flowers and dusted flowers with pollen from another flower

  • was able to cross plants with different characteristics

  • used purebreds: an organism that only produces offspring with only one form of a trait

    • A specific characteristic such as seed color or plant height

Question of the day dec 9

QUESTION of the Day Dec 9

  • Which of the following are not examples of heredity?

  • A. the stripes of a zebra

  • B. the rows of teeth in the mouth of a Great White Shark

  • C. speaking a foreign language

  • D. a tiger hunting prey

Do now dec 9


  • If you crossed a Tall pea plant with a short pea plant, how would you predict the offspring produced?

Agenda dec 9


  • BIG Question: How can characteristics of offspring be determined?

  • 1. Question of the day and DO NOW

  • 2. Mendel’s Crosses

    • P, F1, and F2 Generations

  • 3. Punnett Squares

  • 4. Review and Homework

Do now answered1


  • You would need to know which trait, Tall or short, was the dominant one.

  • It is also necessary to identify the alleles from each parent that may be passed down to an offspring.

  • This dominant trait will most likely be expressed.

True breeding


  • True-breeding plants are plants that only carry one allele for a trait.

  • If these plants are allowed to self-pollinate, they will produce offspring identical to themselves.

    • TALL plants produce TALL plants

    • Green seeded plants produce Green seeded plants

Pea plant traits

Pea Plant Traits

  • studied only seven traits with only two options

  • decided to cross pea plants with different characteristics for the same trait

  • tall with short, green seeds with yellow seeds, round seeds with wrinkled seeds, and so on

  • alleles: different forms of a gene

Mendel s results

Mendel’s Results

  • offspring were hybrids: organisms produced by crossing parents with differing characteristics

  • all hybrids had the characteristics of only one parent

Mendel s conclusions

Mendel’s Conclusions

  • 1. individual factors, called genes, control each trait

  • 2. principle of dominance: some factors or alleles are dominant whereas others are recessive

Mendel s second experiment

Mendel’s Second Experiment

  • allowed hybrid plants to reproduce among themselves

  • kept groups in order

    • P generation: purebred group

    • F1 generation: hybrid group

    • F2 generation: offspring of hybrids

  • in F2 plants, the recessive traits reappeared

Mendel s results1

Mendel’s Results

  • in his F2 generations, the recessive trait showed up in ¼ of the offspring

  • phenotype: physical characteristics

  • genotype: genetic makeup

  • homozygous: two identical alleles for a particular trait

    • TT, homozygous dominant

    • tt, homozygous recessive

  • heterozygous: having two different alleles for the same trait

    • Tt

      QUIZ on Thursday Sections 11-1 and 11-2

Genes and alleles

genes: unit that determines traits

alleles: different forms of a gene

have two alleles for each trait

one from each parent

sex cells contain one allele

when sex cells combine, create cells with two sets of genes

Genes and Alleles

11 2 probability and punnett squares

11-2: Probability and Punnett Squares

  • probability applies to genetics because the formation of gametes depends on random events

Probability and punnett squares

Probability and Punnett Squares

  • probability: the likelihood that a particular event will occur

  • probability = the number of times a particular event occurs ÷ the number of opportunities for the event to occur

  • Punnett squares analyze the results of an experimental cross

  • determines the probability of getting certain genotypes and phenotypes

Predicting averages

Predicting Averages

  • Consider our class and the test we have recently taken.

  • If the test average was a 70, explain how this average is possible having only 2 test scores.

  • With 3 Test Scores?

  • These results will depend on the individual students and courses.

Predicting averages1

Predicting Averages

  • Probabilities predict the average outcome of a large number of events.

  • Cannot predict the precise outcome of an single event.

  • Also true for genetics.

  • Larger numbers of offspring will produce results closer to the expected values/ratios.

    • In the F1 Gen of Mendel’s pea plants, only 3 or 4 offspring may not the predicted offspring.

    • However, hundreds or thousands of these offspring will produce ratios very close to expectations of Mendel’s results.

Question of the day dec 12

Question of the Day Dec 12

Independent assortment

Independent Assortment

  • process by which genes segregate independently

  • ifa plant has a round seed, it does not mean it will always have a yellow seed

  • can cross two traits, called a dihybrid cross, and have independent assortment

  • get all sort of genotypes

A summary of mendel s work

A Summary of Mendel’s Work

  • genes control heredity

  • genes are inherited from each parent

  • some forms of the gene may be dominant and others may be recessive

  • segregation occurs during the formation of reproductive cells

  • genes for different traits may sort independently of one another

Dihybrid crosses

Dihybrid Crosses

  • Solving for two different traits.

  • Parents --- RrYy and RrYy

  • R = Wrinkled seedY = Yellow seed

  • Capital Letters = DOMINANT TRAITS

  • Use the FOIL method to determine all of the possible genotypes of the parents.

  • F=first O=outer I=inner L=last

Dihybrid crosses1

Dihybrid Crosses

  • Parent Genotypes – RrYy

  • Use FOIL Method to find possible allele combinations.

11 3 a closer look at heredity

many genes have more than one allele or have alleles that are neither dominant nor recessive

incomplete dominance: neither allele is completely dominant or recessive

The phenotype for a heterozygous offspring is somewhere in the middle.

11-3: A Closer Look At Heredity

Incomplete dominance

Incomplete Dominance

  • Cross a Red Flowered plant with a White Flowered plant.

  • What are the genotypes and phenotypes of the offspring?

  • Will offspring have White Flowers?

11 5 gene linkage

11-5 Gene Linkage

  • In 1910, Thomas Hunt Morgan conducted many experiments with the Drosophilia fruit fly.

  • Many groups of genes were “linked” together.

    • Reddish eyes and miniature wings

  • This led to two conclusions.

  • 1. Chromosomes are actually groups of linked genes

  • 2. Chromosomes assort independently (not single genes)

11 5 gene mapping

11-5 Gene Mapping

  • Crossing over can separate and exchange linked genes.

    • Creates genetic diversity

  • The farther apart 2 genes are from one another, the greater chance they would be separate by crossing over.

  • Genetic maps of distances were created using this principle.
