1. Twin’studies’for’Crohn±s’disease’(CD)’have’shown’50%’concordance’between’monozygotic’twins,’ and’less’than’10%’concordance’between’dizygotic’twins.’What’can’you’conclude’about’the’relative’ effects’of’genetics’and’environment’on’this’disease?’ Choose one. a. Both’genetics’and’environment’contribute’substantially’to’CD. b. CD’is’caused’by’several’genes,’but’not’by’environmental’factors. c. CD’is’caused’by’environment,’but’not’by’genetic’factors. d. CD’has’different’causes’in’monozygotic’twins’than’in’dizygotic’twins. You know that there is an environmental component, because identical (mono-zygotic) twins have less than 100% concordance. At the saeme time, you can tell it is not purely environmental, because of the big difference in concordance between monozygotic and dizygotic twins (who, either either case, share very similar environment). 2. Consider’the’following’data’for’concordance’rates’between’fraternal’and’identical’twins’for’ three’particular’traits. ’ a. Which’of’the’traits’ shows’the’ least’ genetic’influence? ’ Trait C b. Explain’how’the’data’supports’your’choice’in’part’(a).’ Similarity in the concordance values between fraternal twins and identical twins indicates that the trait has a smaller genetic component, because the differences in environment between two people who are twins are not affected much by whether they are identical or fraternal, but the difference in genetic inheritance is: in particular, identical twins have the same genotype at all loci, while fraternal twins have the same genotype at only 50% (of variable loci).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
