Genetics: Mendelian Genetics PART 1 : Patterns of Inheritance Key Concepts: 1. Genes are units of information about inherited Traits 2. Each gene has a particular location on a particular chromosome blood type is on chromosome 9 3. During meiosis, paired genes ( moms chromosome 9 and dads) are moved apart both genes can NOT go to one child, blue eyes go to one kid and brown eyes goes to other 4. Gregory Mendel found evidence for gene segregation 5.Homologous chromosomes are independently distributed and assorted during meiosis many different pathways and combination 6.Not all traits are clearly dominant or recessive but can be partially dominant or codominant Which genes are being expressed and which are not TERMS: Centromere: contains non coding sequence, so can not damage the gene expressions Gene – function unit codes some trait. Alleles - one of alternative forms of a particular gene, what determines what, many versions True-breeding - produce offspring consistently identical to the parent with respect to
