Genetics Homework Mike Moffat BS 162 3/29/12 I decided to do this assignment on the fruit fly and how their genetics are expressed throughout science. Now, Mendel’s experiment was with garden peas but Morgan made a similar experiment with the fruit flies. Now, they both made the same conclusions, in the explanation of four different concepts. The first one stated that each gene resides at a specific locus on a specific chromosome, and the alternative versions of a gene are called alleles. Now, for fruit flies, these can vary from the color of their eyes, to the length of their wings, and their sex. The second concept was stated that for each character, an organism inherits two alleles, one from each parent and they can either be identical or different. The third concept stated that if the two alleles differ, then one determines the organism’s appearance and the other has no noticeable effect on appearance. This applies to fruit flies because the appearance is the color of their eyes, and then the size of the wings doesn’t affect their appearance, it just is their genetic makeup to have those wings. The

    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.
