Lecture Topic: Pedigree Analysis Genetic variation within and between populations Population Genetics Determine evolutionary relationships among species Phylogenetic Analysis Understanding how the behavior of animals, including humans, is influenced by genetics (Honey bees foraging) Behavioral Genetics how genetic information passes from one generation to the next DNA, deoxyribonucleicacid Nucleic acids/nucleotides, adenine, thymine, guanine, cytosine Made up of a sugar (deoxyribose), phosphate backbone and nucleic acid Cellular and Molecular Genetics Preserves the information it carries in the order of the base pairs Copies this information exactly during cell diviosn, when DNA is replicated DNA unwinds, base pairs separate, each strand serves as a template, DNA polymerase brings complementary base pairs along with each strand and results in two identical strands Happens during mitosis and meiosis I (interphase) Uses this information to code for specific proteins
