  2. How can we use probability to predict traits?
  3. Define homologous chromosomes
  4. How is meiosis different from mitosis?
  5. Homozygous
  1. a having two identical alleles for a trait
  2. b Punnett squares use probability to predict the combinations of alleles in a genetic cross.
  3. c Codominance
  4. 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.
  5. e Chromosome pairs of the same length, centromere positions, and staining patterns for the same characteristics.

  2. Spindle fibers attach to the chromosomes
  3. When gametes are made, the alleles for each trait seperate from each other. That way each gamete carries only one allele for each gene.
  4. specific characteristic of an individual
  5. One of Mendel's principles that states that genes for different traits can segregate independently during the formation of gametes

5 True/False Questions

  1. Explain how to determine the gametes for a dihybrid cross when the parent gamete is TtYyAlleles of different genes tend to be inherited together when those genes are on the same chromosome.


  2. Describe a situation in flowers that show incomplete dominanceThe phenotypes for both alleles are equally expressed in the offspring.


  3. Fertilizationprocess in sexual reproduction in which male and female reproductive cells join to form a new cell


  4. Example of a polygenic trait in humans.trait controlled by two or more genes


  5. Principle of independent assortmentstates that the pair of alleles for each parent seperate and only one allele passes from each parent to an offspring
