Stephanie Darden Dr. Alexander Biology 201, MWF 10:00 10-14-02 Corn Genetics Lab When looking at genetics, one must look at the different things that have been combined for us to reach where we are in our understanding of it. The fist major combination is between what we learned when we imagined chromosomes and when we actually saw chromosomes. If we had never seen a chromosome, we still would have been able to gather a sense of genetics, but we would have had to at least imagine what the chromosomes where like. Since we have actually seen chromosomes, this gives a more definite idea of genetics, in the narrowest sense. The second combination of ideas was with chemistry. It allowed us to define systems in more precise terms, and to expand at each level. We were also able to see the actual chromosomes, their movements, their products, their changes, and their self- propagation in terms of protein chemistry. The third combination that we look at is between hereditary and development. These were brought together as aspects of the same problem of propagation and organization in two types of structures, the nucleus and cytoplasm. The fourth combination resolved the conflict of biometry and mendelism, and
