Unformatted text preview: Mechanisms that mix maternally &amp; paternally inherited chromosomes in gamete formation:-Independent assortment of chromosomes-Crossing over Independent assortment of chromosomes Homologous pairs of chromosomes orient randomly - metaphase I Homologous chromosomes (paternal and maternal) sort into daughter cells independently Genes on different chromosomes are inherited independently And, crossing over mixes material on homologous chromosomes too Prophase I: homologous chromosomes pair up gene by gene DNA is swapped between homologous chromosomes DNA from two parents combines into a single chromosome Haploid cells do not contain just maternally inherited (red) or paternally inherited (blue) chromosomes Individual chromosomes are mixed, and gamete cells have both maternally derived and paternally derived chromosomes Vocabulary Wild-type, mutant Parental type, recombinant Linked genes, sex linked, autosomal Barr body Duchenne muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, Aneuploidy, trisomic, monosomic, non-disjunction Downs syndrome, Klinefelters syndrome, Turners syndrome Chapter 15, Figures 15.2, 3, 5 CONCEPTS: 1. Linked genes are located near one another on the same chromosome and tend to be inherited together 2. Recombination data can be used to develop linkage maps...
