gregor johann mendel
1822- 1884

Austrian monk

Experimented with pea plants

He thought that ‘heritable factors’ (genes) retained their individuality generation after generation

Gregor Johann Mendel
time line
1831 Charles Darwin joins crew of Beagle

1847Semmelweiss proposes that infection is spread by contaminated hands of physicians.

1856 Mendel begins hybridization studies with garden peas

1857 Louis Pasteur (France) introduces the Germ Theory of Disease.

1859 Darwin publishes Origin of Species

1865 Mendel presents presents his results in transmission of phenotypic traits between the generations to the Brünn Society of Natural Sciences.

1900 Hugo de Vries in Holland, William Bateson in Great Britain, Franz Correns in Germany, and Erich Tschermak in Austria acknowledged Mendel's legacy, and hailed him as the true father of classical genetics.

Time Line

Terms to Know and Use

  • Gene - a heritable feature: i.e. flower color coded for on a chromosome
  • Trait - variant for a gene: i.e. a purple flower, determined by alleles
  • Dominant trait - expressed over recessive trait when both are present
  • Recessive trait - not expressed when the dominant trait is present
slide5

Allele - a variation of a gene responsible for different traits, often expressed as A or a

  • Locus - location of a gene,or allele, on a chromosome
  • Chromosome - strand of DNA that codes for genes
  • Haploid - one copy of a chromosome
  • Diploid - two copies of a chromosome
  • Gamete - a spermatozoa or oocyte (egg) cell, they are haploid
slide6

Zygote - cell resulting from the fusion of two gametes, they are diploid

  • Genotype - the type of alleles on a chromosome: genetic makeup
  • Phenotype - The way a genotype is expressed: i.e. the color of a flower
  • True breeding line - organisms that always pass the same genotype to their offspring
  • Hybrid - offspring resulting from crossbreeding two true breeding lines: F1
garden pea experiments 1856 64
Garden Pea Experiments 1856-64
  • Mendel disagreed with the “Blending Theory” of inheritance.
  • Started with34 kinds peas Pisium sativum
  • After 2 years he had 22 purebreds

pea characteristics
Pea Characteristics

Trait on the left is dominant. Trait on the right is recessive.

mendel s hypotheses
Mendel’s Hypotheses
  • There are alternate forms of ‘genes’=alleles
  • For each trait, organisms have 2 genes, one from mom & one from dad
  • Sperm and egg each carry 1 allele/trait because alleles segregate
  • When only one allele is expressed & other has no noticeable effect, it is dominant

mendel s experiments
Mendel’s Experiments
  • Plants must possess constant differentiating characteristics.
  • The hybrids of such plants must, during the flowering period, be protected from the influence of all foreign pollen, or be easily capable of such protection.
  • The hybrids and their offspring should suffer no marked disturbance in their fertility in the successive generations.
slide12

Mendel's Laws of Inheritance

  • Law of Segregationduring gamete formation allele pairs separate or segregate, into different gametes(Demonstrated with a “test cross”).
  • Law of Independent Assortment suggested that each allele pair segregates independently of other gene pairs during gamete formation (Demonstrated with a dihybrid cross).

meiosis i
Meiosis I

One diploid sex cell divides……

meiosis ii
Meiosis II

Result: One diploid cell = four haploid cells

do all genes assort independently
DO ALL GENES ASSORT INDEPENDENTLY?
  • Genes on the same chromosome tend to be inherited together = linked
  • Sex-linked genes: color blindness, MD, hemophilia. X Y
