General Biology Laboratory Manual LABORATORY: GENETICS and EVOLUTION This lab is designed to reinforce concepts of evolution and genetics problem solving. GRADING check for less than three points taken off check minus for three or more points taken off zero for not handed in on time GENERAL PROCEDURE Work in groups of two or three. Do the lab in the order listed below. Turn in the lab before you leave class. A. Video Carefully watch the video, Biovideo: The Evidence of Evolution: Part 1 Fossils. After the video, with a partner and using your class notes, answer the following questions. Fossil Evidence 1. List four types of fossils. 2. Beside the appropriate fossils above, write the following words: ‘carbon outline’, ‘snail trails’, ‘bones, teeth or shells’, ‘filled in empty space’. 3. Beside at least two of the fossils above, list an example shown in the video. 4. List the three types of rock AND beside the appropriate one, write the word ‘fossil’. 5. List five ways body parts may be preserved.

Unformatted text preview: General Biology Laboratory Manual B. Problems. Do the following genetics problems. For each problem: • indicate the genotypes of the parents, • draw a Punett square, • indicate the genotypes of the offspring, • indicate the phenotypes of the offspring. 1. In 4 o’clock plants, the petal color gene has incompletely dominant alleles which are red and white. P: red X heterozygote 2. In fruit flies, the gene for eye color is sex linked and the red allele is dominant to white. P: heterozygote female X recessive male 3. P: carrier female X color blind male General Biology Laboratory Manual 4. P: normal X partial sickle cell 5. P: type O X heterozygous type B blood type blood type 6. In pea plants, the allele for tall is dominant to the allele for short and the allele for yellow seeds is dominant to green seeds P: heterozygous for height; X homo. recessive for height; homo. dominant for color heterozygous for color General Biology Laboratory Manual...
