Meiosis, Crossing Over and Independent Assortment
Terms in this set (7)
An exchange of DNA sequences/pieces of chromosome between the two members of a pair of homologous chromosomes. Occurs during Prophase 1 of Meiosis.
A sex or reproductive cell produced at the end of Meiosis.
A pair of chromosomes containing the same genes. One member of each pair comes from an organisms mother, and the second from an organisms father.
The random arrangement of pairs of homologous chromosomes at the center or equator of a cell during Metaphase 1 of Meiosis.
One half of a duplicated chromosome, containing one copy of the chromosomes DNA molecule
A cell containing two sets of chromosomes, and thus two copies of each gene
A cell containing one set of chromosomes, and thus one copy of each gene

Give one example of a “safe" chemical that could, under the right conditions, be hazardous.
Describe the mutually beneficial relationship that exist between many sponges and certain photosynthetic organisms.
A curious polymorphism in human populations has to do with the ability to curl up the sides of the tongue to make a trough (“tongue rolling”). Some people can do this trick, and others simply cannot. Hence, it is an example of a dimorphism. Its significance is a complete mystery. In one family, a boy was unable to roll his tongue but, to his great chagrin, his sister could. Furthermore, both his parents were rollers, and so were both grandfathers, one paternal uncle, and one paternal aunt. One paternal aunt, one paternal uncle, and one maternal uncle could not roll their tongues. a. Draw the pedigree for this family, defining your symbols clearly, and deduce the genotypes of as many individual members as possible. b. The pedigree that you drew is typical of the inheritance of tongue rolling and led geneticists to come up with the inheritance mechanism that no doubt you came up with. However, in a study of 33 pairs of identical twins, both members of 18 pairs could roll, neither member of 8 pairs could roll, and one of the twins in 7 pairs could roll but the other could not. Because identical twins are derived from the splitting of one fertilized egg into two embryos, the members of a pair must be genetically identical. How can the existence of the seven discordant pairs be reconciled with your genetic explanation of the pedigree?
Two species of sea urchins live practically side-by-side on sandy bottoms. The two species appear to have the same diet. They are able to live in the same environment with minimal competition. How might they be able to share their habitat and food resources?
