2 Genetic Information Gene  – basic unit of genetic information.  Genes determine the inherited characters. Genome  – the collection of genetic  information. Chromosomes  – storage units of genes. DNA DNA  -  is a nucleic acid that contains the  genetic instructions specifying the biological  development of all cellular forms of life

3 Chromosome Logical Structure Locus  – location of a gene/marker on the  chromosome. Allele  – one variant form of a gene/marker  at a particular locus. Locus1 Possible Alleles: A1,A2 Locus2 Possible Alleles: B1,B2,B3

4 Human Genome Most human cells  contain 46 chromosomes: sex chromosomes  (X,Y): XY – in males. XX – in females. 22 pairs of chromosomes named  autosomes .

5 Genotypes Phenotypes At each locus (except for sex chromosomes) there are 2 genes.   These constitute the individual’s  genotype  at the locus. The expression of a genotype is termed a  phenotype . For  example, hair color, weight, or the presence or absence of a  disease.

7 Dominant vs. Recessive   dominant  allele is  expressed even if it is paired  with a recessive allele. recessive  allele is only  visible when paired with  another recessive allele.

Two members of a gene pair segregate from each other into  the gametes, so half the gametes carry one member of the  pair and the other half carry the other member of the pair.
