BIOLOGY – MEIOSIS TO MENDEL - Homologous chromosomes: one set of chromosomes from each parent. - Sister Chromatids: attached at a centromere - Homologous chromosomes have the same band pattern when stained - Karyotype: chromosomes arranged from longest to shortest - Meiosis 1 -> chromosomes reduced by half - Meiosis 2 -> number of chromosomes does not change - 2 replicated -> 2 cells, each with 2 UNreplicated chromosome - Number of DNA drops twice, number of chromosomes drops once. - No S-Phase in meiosis 2 - Meiosis only occurs in specialized meiotic areas of the body - Meiosis generates genetic diversity o Crossing over between maternal and paternal homologous during prophase o Independent assortment/alignment of mat/pat homologous from different tetrads during metaphase o Random alignment of recombinant chromatids at

    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.
