Chapter Outline

  • Classical Genetics

  • DNA and the Birth of Molecular Genetics

  • The Genetic Code

Chapter 23- Part 1 Classical Genetics

Genetics got it’s start as the study of inheritance.Charles Darwin proposed that favorable traits could be passed from generation to generation resulting in natural selection.

However, Darwin did not know how these traits were passed on.





Slide8 l.jpg

Next, Mendel crossed some of these F tall.1 plants among themselves. Of these offspring (the F2 generation), about 3/4 of the plants were tall and 1/4 were dwarf.

F2 tall tall tall dwarf


Slide9 l.jpg

Mendel tested 6 other traits of pea plants: tall.

traits for seed shape (wrinkled or smooth)seed color (yellow or green), etc.

In each case, all of the F1 plants looked as though they had inherited the trait of just one of their two parents, but in the F2 generation both traits always appeared -- and always in a 3 to 1 ratio.


Slide10 l.jpg

The trait which was expressed in the F tall.1 generation was always about 3 times as numerous in the F2 generation as was the other one which was hidden in the F1's.


Slide11 l.jpg

Homozygous = same tall.

Heterzygous = different

When both alleles for a trait are identical, say that the organism is homozygous for that trait. When the 2 alleles are different, is heterozygous.

TT = Homozygous Tt = Heterozygous tall tall

Tall is dominant over dwarf; dwarf is said to be a recessive trait (i.e. can only be expressed when there are two copies of it).


Slide12 l.jpg

Homozygous = same Heterzygous =different

Tall Dwarf Tall

TT tt Tt



Slide14 l.jpg

However, in the second generation the rules of probability dictate that 1/4 of the plants will be tt = dwarf and 3/4 will have at least one T and hence be tall.


Slide15 l.jpg

Mendel Studied Many Traits in Pea Plants-- of probability dictate that 1/4 of the plants will be tt = dwarf and 3/4 will have at least one T and hence be tall.

Seed shape- smooth or wrinkled

Seed color- green or yellow

Pod shape- smooth or bumpy

Pod color- green or yellow

Flower location- at leaf or tip of branch


Slide16 l.jpg

Many traits are passed on by genes. of probability dictate that 1/4 of the plants will be tt = dwarf and 3/4 will have at least one T and hence be tall.

The genes encode the information for proteins.

The genes are segments of DNA.

Mendel found that two factors determine traits.

These are alternate forms of genes- one from each parent.

These are now called alleles.

Rules of classical genetics l.jpg
Rules of Classical Genetics of probability dictate that 1/4 of the plants will be tt = dwarf and 3/4 will have at least one T and hence be tall.

  • Traits (genes) are passed from parent to offspring

    • mechanism unknown

  • Two genes for each trait

    • One from each parent

  • There are dominant and recessive genes

    • Dominant expressed


Slide20 l.jpg

Alleles: two different forms of the gene. of probability dictate that 1/4 of the plants will be tt = dwarf and 3/4 will have at least one T and hence be tall.

For many hereditary traits, genes exist in two or more different forms called alleles. On each pair of chromosomes, there is one allele for a particular gene on each. ex. A, B, O blood groups. In humans there are 3 alleles: A, B, and O.

Slide43 l.jpg

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) copies a sequence of DNA.

(a) A strand of DNA is mixed in solution with DNA precursors (nucleotides), a primer that targets a specific piece of DNA, and an enzyme (polymerase) that helps to assemble DNA. The mix is heated to 200°F to separate DNA strands.


Slide44 l.jpg

( DNA. b) When cooled to 140°F, primers attach to the DNA strands.

(c) At 160°F nucleotides begin to attach to the DNA strands.

(d) At the end you have two copies of the desired DNA.


Slide45 l.jpg

DNA fingerprinting requires DNA.

breaking DNA into short

fragments, tagging those

fragments with radioactive

tracers, and then mixing the

fragments in a gel.

In an electric field, smaller fragments move farther along the gel, and the distribution of fragments can be recorded on a photographic film

(b). Because each person’s DNA sequence is unique, each DNA fingerprint is distinctive.
