Which of the three types of frequency independent selection is of most interest to scientists studying speciation? 41. A genetic mutation that may or may not lead to phenotypic diversity is an example of a new ____________. 42. A characteristic, such as height on humans, controlled by many different genes is an example of a(n) ____________. a.haplotype b.antagonistic pleiotropy c.epistatic interference d.polygenic trait 43.

Match the term on the left with its best description on the right. 45. Selective sweep A 46. Compensatory mutation D 47. Clonal interference B 48. Haplotype block C 49. If I wanted to gather data to determine if two genes of interest were linked in a study organism with an undescribed genome, which of the following would notbe a productive strategy? a.Examine differential expression of these two genes in at least three different tissue types b.Determine if there was an unusual association of phenotypes associated with traits controlled by these genes c.Sequence the entire genome and then locate the position of the genes of interest d.Perform a fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH) for both genes in a karyotype for the organism 50. The process of Quantitative Trait Locus (QTL) mapping uses patterns generated by which biological process to identify regions of the genome that impact a trait of interest?

    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.
