a. chromosome : thread-like, gene-carrying structures in the cell nucleus. Chromosomes
are composed primarily of DNA and protein. Chromosomes are visible only under
magnification during an early stage of cell di
What are Punnett Tables?
Punnett Tables (or P-Tables) are a diagrammatic way of determining the possible pairing of gametes into
zygotes, to determine the probability for genotypes in offspring.
Suppose we had an individual with genotype AABBCc. Remember,

Lab Exercise 3. The Double Helix
Objectives: The two main functions of DNA are duplication for reproduction, and
protein synthesis for the maintenance of an organism and keep it alive.
The first process is essential for the

Having multiple gene loci in making these combinations, can be troublesome for students. Most can use
the P Tables for making combinations for 2 sets of genes, but adding more is a bit confusing! Lets limit it
to three for this lab

Review all key terms from Lessons 2 and 3.
FYI, the first conclusion Mendel reached, that traits were determined by units
(genes), were called particles. This is sometimes referred to as
Lab 11: Tracing Hominid Evolution
1) Creationists often say that all of the hominid fossils can fit onto a single table or into a coffin. This
claim is most likely made because although there are thousands of fossil specimens, finding a

they dont. So the indigenous man was saying how why isnt it possible humans could have been created
on Australia and people branched from there. I

Taphonomy is the study of the process of fossilization, from the death of the
organism to the moment of the fossil's discovery and everything
The Austin Zoo
So Im living in Austin this summer so I was not able to attend the Dallas or Ft. Worth Zoo. It was
very interesting because this was the first time going to this zoo. Watching all of these animals behave
was intriguing simply becaus
