  Normal Size     Small Size show me how


number of chromosomes in humans 23
percent related to either parent or any sibling 50%
homozygote dominant/recessive cross results all heterozygotes
heterozygote and homozygote recessive cross results 1/2 homozygote recessive, 1/2 heterozygote
two heterozygotes cross 1/2 heterozygotes, 1/4 homozygous recessive, 1/4 homozygous dominant
components of gene transmission dominant and recessive and any complications to simple dominance
complications to simple dominance multiple gene effects, sex linkage, codominance, parental coding, crossing over, and x-deactivation
example of multiple gene effects partial albino gene at a different chromosome affects hamster coat color (if recessive, they get a normal color. if not, albino trumps the color coded on the other chromosome)
examples of sex linkage hemophilia (skips a generation when manifesting), color blindness-- usually affects males more frequently
codominance two dominant genes can produce their effects together (Ex. the ABO blood typing system-- A and B are both dominant)
parental coding gene expression is affected by which parent you got it from
crossing over homologous pairs exchange parts of chromosomes to create new genetic combinations
x-deactivation one X chromosome turns off in different cells during development of females to rectify the unbalance between males (XY) and females (XX) (Ex. calico cats)

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.
