Unformatted text preview: Define and give an example of: trisomy, triploidy, a hexaploid plant, and deletion. Show how synapsed chromosomes would appear in heterozygotes for a deletion, a duplication, an inversion, and a translocation. What role might these aberrations play in forming new species? Give three different types of tests that can be used to detect genetic defects following amniocentesis, and an example of each. What is PCR? List the components and describe the protocol. Give examples of how it can be used. What is meant by transgenic animals? superovulation? Calculate gene frequencies from given populations. Examples: 1) 30AA, 40Aa, and 30aa. 2) 91% A_ and 9% aa. What genotypic frequencies would you expect in these populations if random mating occurred? List the forces that can change gene frequencies. What happens to gene frequencies and genotypic frequencies when inbreeding occurs?...
