Lecture 38 Quantative Genetics
-What is the difference between quantative and qualitive trait?
Qualitative Traits (Discontinuous) -produce discrete phenotypes
Quantitative Traits (Continuous)
- produce a range of phenotypes
- affected by many genes (loci)
Lecture 37 Organelle DNA
-Which organelles in the cell have their own DNA?
Mitochondrion & Chloroplast
- Membrane bound organelles
- Divide independent of Mitosis/Meiosis.
- Uniparental inheritance.
- Contain their own DNA!
- Is mitochondrial DNA like Euk
Lecture 40 Population Genetics
-What is a Mendelian Population? How does a geneticist define evolution?
group of interbreeding, sexual reproducing individuals with a common set of genes
Populations evolve through changes i
Lecture 41 Molecular Evolution
-Identify the 4 ways in which new genes are created in the genome?
-What is the molecular clock? Why is it inaccurate? How can it be made more accurate?
-Why isnt the rate of mutation constant across all genes?
-What are hom
