Chapter 9 study guide

What is Amniocentesis? the sampling of amniotic fluid using a hollow needle inserted into the uterus, to screen for developmental abnormalities in a fetus.
When is Amniocentesis done? after 14 weeks
Define allele one of two or more alternative forms of a gene that arise by mutation and are found at the same place on a chromosome.
True Breeding Dominant AABB
True Breeding Recessive aabb
Dominant A
Recessive a
Phenotypic ratio 3:1 (dominant, recessive)
Genotypic ratio 1:2:1 (capital, capital, lowercase)
Phenotype trait expressed
Genotype alleles
Mendel's Principle of Segregation and Law of Independent Assortment Segregation = separation Independent = by themselves
Incomplete Dominance one allele does not completely dominate another allele, and therefore results in a new phenotype
Co-Dominance a condition in which the alleles of a gene pair in a heterozygote are fully expressed thereby resulting in offspring with a phenotype that is neither dominant nor recessive
Polygenic one of a group of nonallelic genes that together control a quantitative characteristic in an organism
Monohybrid Tt - one letter
Dihybrid TtDd - two letters
Sex-Linked X^a Y crossed with X^A X^a
Gene Mapping the process of determining where genes are located on individual chromosomes
Linked Genes genes that are found near each other on the same chromosome
Blood Typing the testing of a sample of blood to determine an individual's blood group
Epistasis occurs when two or more different gene loci contribute to the same phenotype, but not additively
Epistatic describes the relationship between the genes in epistasis
Recombination the rearrangement of genetic material, especially by crossing over in chromosomes or by the artificial joining of segments of DNA from different organisms
Pleiotropy occurs when one gene influences two or more seemingly unrelated phenotypic traits

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
