Mendel and Probablility

trait distinguishing characteristics that are inherited
genetics study of biological inheritance patterns
purebred genetically uniform
cross mating of two organisms
law of segregation - organisms inherit two copies of each gene - organisms donate one gene copy to gametes
genome all of an organism's genetic makeup
gene piece of DNA that provides a set of instructions for cells to release a certain protein
genotype genetic makeup of a specific set of genes
allele any alternative form of a gene that may occur at a certain locus
dominant allele always expresses
homozygous two of the same allele at a specific locus
recessive allele only expressed when two copies are present
heterozygous two different alleles at a specific locus
monohybrid cross examine inheritance of one specific trait
testcross cross between an organism with an unknown genotype and an organism with the recessive phenotype.
law of independent assortment states that allele pairs separate independently of each other during gamete formation, or meiosis
phenotype physical characteristics
crossing over exchange of chromosome segments between homologous chromosomes during prophase I of meiosis I.
genetic linkage genes located together that are inherited together
Punnett square grid system that predicts all possible genotypes of a cross
dihybrid cross examine inheritance of two different traits
probability likelihood a particular event will happen

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.
