  1. a deletion- occurs when a piece of chromosome is lost

    duplication-occurs when a piece remains attached to its homologous chromosome after meiosis

    inversion- occurs when a piece reattaches to its original chromosome but in the reverse direction

    translocation- occurs when a chromosome piece breaks off and reattaches to a completely different non homologous chromosome

  4. Tobacco

5 True/False Questions

  1. HealthThe link between microevolution and macroevolution, and is the formation of new species


  2. What is the difference between an intron and an exon?Introns are non-coding segments of mRNA which are cut out of the mRNA after transcription
    Exons are coding segments of mRNA which are spliced together after the introns have been removed.


  3. What is the difference between an autosome and a sex chromosome? How many of each are found in a gamete and in a somatic cell?A dominant allele is always expressed if it is present while the recessive allele is submissive to the dominant allele and isn't expressed unless paired with another recessive.
    D- dominant
    d- recessive


  4. What is endosymbiotic theory? Which organelles does it apply to?The process of change by which new species develop from preexisting species over time
    The idea of natural election if why evolution happens
    Individuals with traits advantageous to survival will produce more offspring
    Over time the number of individuals possessing those traits will increase in a population


  5. What makes one protein different from another?The sequence of amino acids.
