Genetics2 l.jpg

  • Bell: What is Genetics?

  • Study of heredity

    • passing of traits from parents to offspring

  • Traits- Visible characteristics

  • Gregor mendel l.jpg
    Gregor Mendel

    • Watch video clips- DVD and “From the Gardent to the Genome” YouTUBE- click for link

    • “Father of Genetics”

    • Austrian Monk

    • Conducted experiments with peas

    • Used numbers in the study of biology

    Gregor mendel4 l.jpg
    Gregor Mendel

    • Experimented with

      • Self-pollination - fertilization within itself

        • Creation of pure-breed or true-breed

        • offspring identical to parents

  • Cross-pollination - fertilization of one by another

    • Offspring from both parents

  • Gregor mendel5 l.jpg
    Gregor Mendel

    • How many experiments were needed to determine conclusive results?

    • Heads/Tails Activity

    • Round x Wrinkled = 7324 offspring

    • Yellow x Green = 8023 offspring

    • Axial x Terminal = 858 offspring

    • Purple x White = 929 offspring

    • Inflated x Constricted = 1181 offspring

    • Green x Yellow = 580 offspring

    • Tall x Dwarf = 1064 offspring

    Mendel s first experiment terminology and crosses l.jpg
    Mendel’s First Experiment- Terminology and Crosses

    • Parental Generation - P

      • - Purebreds for each parent

    • 1st Filial - F1 (first generation)

      • offspring of cross (children)

      • created hybrid - cross between 2 parents

    • 2nd Filial - F2 (second generation)

      • Grandchildren

    Mendel s conclusions l.jpg
    Mendel’s Conclusions

    • I. Traits are determined by a “factor”

      • Now termed GENES

      • Different forms of a gene are called ALLELE

  • II. Each “factor” is inherited separately

  • III. Each trait is determined by one of the “factors” inherited from the parents

    • Principle of Dominance -

      • Dominant masks the expression of the recessive

  • Bellringer genetics day 2 l.jpg

    • What will be the fur color of the offspring of Benjamin Bear and Elizabeth Bear?

    • Law of Segregation = 2 forms of a gene/ allele are separated during meiosis

      • (one to each gamete)

  • Complete the Teddy Bear Genetics

  • Probability l.jpg

    • Likelihood that an event will happen

      • Ex) coin toss

        • 1 coin flip = 1/2 chance or 50%

        • Heads 3 times in a row = 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8

        • 1/2 chance for each event (flip)

  • Principles of Probablility can be used to predict genetic outcomes

  • Genetics and probability l.jpg

    • Ability to roll tongue = dominant trait

      • Can you determine your genotype?

    • With a partner:

      • John is heterozygous for tongue rolling and Nancy cannot roll her tongue. What is the chance that they will have children that cannot roll their tongue?

    Human heredity l.jpg
    Human Heredity

    • Human Chromosomes

      • Human cell =

        • 46 chromosomes (23 pairs)

        • 1 set from Mom (egg) : 1 set from Dad (sperm)

        • 2 of those are known as sex chromosome

          • Female = XX

          • Male = XY

  • Remaining 44 chromosomes = autosome

  • Pedigree l.jpg

    • Chart that shows the relationships within a family

    • Often used to determine the mode of inheritance

    Pedigree cont l.jpg
    Pedigree (cont.)

    • Female =

    • Male =

    Pedigree practice autosomal dominant l.jpg
    Pedigree Practice: Autosomal Dominant?




    • Draw each pedigree

    • Assume that the affected trait is dominant. Write the genotypes beside each recessive individual

    • Is it possible for this trait to be autosomal dominant? -Circle if possible or X if not possible

    • Can two affected individuals have unaffected children?

    Pedigree practice autosomal recessive l.jpg

    • Assume the trait is recessive.

    • Draw the pedigree and write the genotype beside each person.

    • Is it possible for the trait to be recessive? - Circle if possible or X if not possible

    • If the trait is autosomal recessive, what can you conclude the children will be of two affected parents?

      • Fifty wavy-haired couples decide to form a commune, because they think wavy hair is cool. Each couple has two children. Out of the 100 children, how many of them should have “uncool” straight hair? (Of course, they will have to be excommunicated, along with their curly-haired siblings, once they reach adulthood.)

    • Nondisjunction- occurs when either homologous chromosome fails to separate during meiosis

      • Results abnormal # of chromosomes in gametes

    • Trisomy = 1 extra homologous chromosome (3)

    • Polysomy = more than 1 extra

    • Monosomy = only 1 chromosome

    Chromosomal Alterations

    • Deletion
