Some features are in two forms Some people have ear lobes and others do not. e.g.

A gene controls how ear lobes develop. There are two versions of the gene. They are called alleles. E which produces ears with lobes. e which produces ears without lobes. and

The genes are in our cells. Where are they kept? In the nucleu s

The genes are on long, string-like things called chromosomes

We have 46 of them in our cells. What do you notice about them?

All our chromosomes are in pairs Where did we get each one from? half came from mum and half came from dad

This means that genes are in pairs Because… E E Genes are on chromosomes.

So. .. forgetting all those chromosomes you might have two lobe alleles EE two no lobe alleles ee or one of each allele Ee but you definitely have 2

Unformatted text preview: usual two. Why is this? Sex cells are designed to join together and so. .. 1 + 1 = 2 We can use these facts to make predictions about the features that children will inherit from their parents. Lets pretend. .. that a man without ear lobes and a woman with lobes will soon have their first baby Will the baby have ear lobes? mum dad parent’s genotype EE ee sex cell’s alleles E e But… does the child have ear lobes? No lobes Lobes Children’s genotype E e Ee YES If someone has both versions of the allele… One version’s effect can hide the other’s. The version is. .. dominant Lets see if you have got the idea! mum dad parent’s genotype Ee Ee sex cell’s alleles E e But… do the children have ear lobes? Lobes Lobes Children’s genotype E e Ee E e E e Ee EE ee EE Ee Ee ee Click here to go back to the start. Click here to finish...
