Genetics

The study of genes and the inheritance of traits


Characteristics l.jpg
Characteristics

  • These are features you exhibit physically

    ( your looks)

    Example: Eye color - green


Traits l.jpg
Traits

  • The different versions of a characteristic

  • Example: blue, green, and brown eyes


Inheritance l.jpg
Inheritance

  • Occurs when traits are passed down from parent to child.


Genes l.jpg
Genes

  • Bits of information passed down from parent to child.

  • Made of chemicals called DNA.


Genetic diseases l.jpg
Genetic Diseases

  • Can be passed on through genes from a parent to the child.

  • Example : Marfan Syndrome

    (Individual is tall, has long arms and legs)

    Remember - JOE


Reproduction l.jpg
Reproduction

  • Sexual – Sperm fertilizes an egg to produce offspring

  • Asexual – occurs when 1 organism copies itself to produce offspring


Fertilization l.jpg
Fertilization

  • Occurs when a sperm unites with an egg


Offspring l.jpg
Offspring

  • Another name for the children of a male and female parent


Mutation l.jpg
Mutation

  • Occurs when genes make a mistake mixing and produce new or different traits in the offspring.


Genotype l.jpg
Genotype

  • A combination of alleles

    Example: TT, Tt, or tt

*We flipped coins to determine the genotype of our critters and puppies.


Alleles l.jpg
Alleles

  • T – is considered a dominant allele

  • t – is considered a recessive allele

TT – is dominant

Tt or tT – is dominant

tt - is recessive


Punnett square l.jpg
Punnett Square

  • Uses mom and dad’s genotypes to determine the possible traits of their offspring.

  • 4 offspring


Phenotype l.jpg
Phenotype

  • They are the traits determined by reading the genotype.

  • Example : FF = black fur

  • Black fur is the phenotype or trait
