- How can we use probability to predict traits?
- Define homologous chromosomes
- How is meiosis different from mitosis?
- a having two identical alleles for a trait
- b Punnett squares use probability to predict the combinations of alleles in a genetic cross.
- c Codominance
- d Mitosis can be a form of asexual reproduction, does not change the number of chromosomes, and makes two identical diploid cells. Meiosis is a step in sexual reproduction, cuts chromosomes in half, and makes four different haploid cells.
- e Chromosome pairs of the same length, centromere positions, and staining patterns for the same characteristics.
5 Multiple Choice Questions
- Spindle fibers attach to the chromosomes
- When gametes are made, the alleles for each trait seperate from each other. That way each gamete carries only one allele for each gene.
- specific characteristic of an individual
- One of Mendel's principles that states that genes for different traits can segregate independently during the formation of gametes
5 True/False Questions
Explain how to determine the gametes for a dihybrid cross when the parent gamete is TtYy → Alleles of different genes tend to be inherited together when those genes are on the same chromosome.
Describe a situation in flowers that show incomplete dominance → The phenotypes for both alleles are equally expressed in the offspring.
Fertilization → process in sexual reproduction in which male and female reproductive cells join to form a new cell
Example of a polygenic trait in humans. → trait controlled by two or more genes
Principle of independent assortment → states that the pair of alleles for each parent seperate and only one allele passes from each parent to an offspring
