1. Pattern formation in insects depends on the sequential activation of key groups of genes (see figure). Of the genes listed below, select the most specific gene group that is normally first to be activated in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, development. Gap genes Segment-polarity genes Homeotic genes Segmentation genes Pair-rule genes 2. Suppose a fruit fly has two sets of wings growing from its thorax (instead of a single pair of wings and a pair of haltares or balance organs). Where might there be a mutation in this fruit fly? Gap genes Segment polarity genes Homeotic genes Egg polarity genes Pair-rule genes 3. Researchers have found homeotic genes in humans, but they are not yet certain how these genes shape the human phenotype. Considering the functions of homeotic genes in other animals, which of the following is most likely to be their function in humans? Determining skin and hair color Regulating the cellular metabolic rate

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
