-A tetrad represents the products of a single meiosis that remain together.
-Example: Yeasts, some algae, basidiospores (Basidiomycetes), asco spores
-Basidomycetes are mushroom and toadstools
Look up fungi
-Ascomycota spores are in a sac called the ascus.
***********Contributions of tetrads to genetics #1 is
Point 1 A tetrad gives us the opportunity to look at a single product of meiosis, therefore
you can test Mendel’s …….
Point 2 Ordered tetrads or linear tetrads allow us to map the centromere with respect ot
Note when it is a linear or ordered tetrad and there is no cross over between the locus and
centromere under consideration, we see 2 blocks of 4 or 2 blocks of 2 in the tetrad
-Haploids are convenient to work with. Small size. Dominance does not hide recessive

-Biodiversity book underline-more than than 40%.
.. extracts of plants, Margin write note:
one of the main benefits of biodiversity, in the DNA of all life forms is written the
information how they solve their biological and physical problems on this planet.
Therefore every species is a library of how we can solve our biological and physiological
For example drugs: note we can put together any combination, Oxygen, carbon
phosphorous, nitrogen sulfur, to kill the fungus, we go to some place on earth where
fungi is a problem and survey the plants for a fungicide, then you can design something.
It’s written in the DNA of the plant that deals with the fungi.
-Tetrad analysis allows us to study the result of an individual meiosis.
-If Aa produces 50% (a) and 50% (a) we assume that this is a result…
-Examination of individual meiosis in ordered asci also allows the mapping of loci with
respect to the centromere.
