2 Lecture 10: Meiosis May 3, 2010 Asexual vs. Sexual Reproduction Asexual reproduction One parent produces genetically identical offspring by mitosis Parent Bud 0.5 mm Sexual reproduction Two parents give rise to offspring with unique combinations of genes Figure 13.1 Willie Offspring inherit a combination of parental traits Heredity transmission of traits from one generation to the next Variation offspring differ from parents and siblings Genetics scientific study of heredity and hereditary variation The process of meiosis underlies the genetic basis of heredity and hereditary variation Genes - units of heredity - segments of DNA Offspring acquire genes inherited on chromosomes Chromosomes one set inherited from mother, one set from father Humans = 2 sets of 23 chromosomes (46) The process of meiosis ensures the inheritance of a combination of chromosomes (…traits…) from mother & father

3 “Reducing Division” (in half) Division of diploid cell with two sets of chromosomes to generate 4 haploid gametes, each with one set of chromosomes generate zygote with two sets of chromosomes Meiosis and Fertilization alternate in sexual life cycles Fertilization Meiosis Figure 13.3 Diploidy: One set of chromosomes inherited from each parent Humans Karyotype (2n = 46) 2 sets of 23 chromosomes, including 2 sex chromosomes 5 µ m Pair of homologous chromosomes Centromere Sister chromatids Homologous chromosomes - Two chromosomes composing a pair - Have the same characteristics - May also be called autosomes Sex chromosomes - Distinct from each other (X and Y) - Determine sex: XX female, XY male
