Crossing dissimilar individuals to bring together the best of both organisms. It is beneficial because the results include a a new line of plants that had the traits farmers needed to increase food production.
What is inbreeding? Give an example.
The continued breeding of individuals with similar characteristics. Example- breeding of dogs are maintained using this practice.
What is the relationship between genetic variations and mutations?
Breeders can increase the genetic variation in a population by introducing mutations which are the ultimate source of biological diversity.
How can breeders introduce mutations? Give specific examples.
By using radiation and chemicals. Biotechnology, breeders may increase the genetic variation in a population by introducing mutations, ultimate source of biological diversity. Example- selective breeding bacterial mutations.
