- Fragile X syndrome Lesch Nyan syndrome Ichthyosis Menkes syndrome Brown teeth Common genetic cause of mental retardation. 1 in 1,500 males; 1 in 2,500 females Caused by duplication mutation. 200+ CGG Remember: Offspring inherit genes, not phenotypes!
s Which alleles end up in a given gamete and later, a new individual?
x 1. Crossing over at Meiosis I x 2. Independent assortment at Meiosis I x 3. Fertilization x 4. Gene mutation x 5. Change in chromosome number or structure Summary
s The relationship between the genotype and the phenotype ranges from simple to very complex.
x Know and be able to give examples of each of the following: x Complete dominance x Incomplete dominace be able to work problems x Codominancex Pleiotropy x Epistasis x Polygenic inheritance x Environmental influence x Genomic imprinting be able to work blood group problems s Pedigrees know how to interpret...
