Repro/Inherit/Chromo

Mix of Patterns of reproduction, patterns of inheritance+Chromosomes/Inheritance

Termdefinition
Asexual Reproduction a reproductive process that involves only one parent and produces offspring that one genetically identical to the parent.
Sexual Reproduction two parents combine their genetic material to produce a new organism which differ from both parents.
Fertilization Sexual reproduction involves an egg cell and a sperm cell joining to form a new cell.
Trait A specific characteristic that an organism can pass to its offspring through its genes.
Gene A sequence of DNA that determines a trait and is passed from parent to offspring.
Inheritance The process by which an offspring receives genes from its parents.
Allele A different form of the same gene.
Polygenic Inheritance Different genes that are expressed together to produce the trait.
Heredity The passing of traits from parent to offspring.
Quantity The amount or number of a material or immaterial thing not usually estimated by spatial measurement.
Factors A substance that takes part in a biochemical reaction or a biological process.
Dominant allele Is one whose trait always shows up in the organism when the allele is present.
Recessive allele Is hidden whenever the dominant allele is present.
Probability A number that describes how likely it is that an event will occur.
Genotype An organism's genetic makeup or combinations of alleles.
Phenotype The organism's physical appearance or visible traits.
Chromosomes Genes that are segments of code that appear on structures.
Structure The arrangement of and relations between the parts or elements of something complex.
Cell Cycle The series of events in which a cell grows, prepares for division, and divides to form daughter cells.
Pedigree A tool that geneticists use to map out the inheritance of traits.
Meiosis Gametes (sperm and egg) are formed through a specialized process.
Homologous Chromosomes Have one chromosome from each parent
Chromatids
Mitosis The majority of our body cells
