BJU Life Science 6

Bob Jones Life Science - Chapter 6

genetics The study of the inheritance of traits from one generation to the next.
cross The mating of organisms to test how they inherit traits
allele One form of a gene for particular trait
purebred Having the same alleles for a particular trait
hybrid Having two different alleles for a particular trait
dominant The characteristic that is expressed even when a recessive allele is present
recessive The characteristic that is expressed only in the absence of a dominant allele
phenotype An organism's physical characteristics; the physical expression of an organism's genes
genotype An organism's genetic makeup
Punnett square A diagram used to visualize genetic crosses
incomplete dominance A type of inheritance in which the alleles for a particular characteristic are neither dominant nor recessive, resulting in a "blending" of the two expressions of the gene
codominance The expression (but not blending) of both alleles for a trait in an organism
polygenic inheritance An inheritance pattern in which two or more genes work together to produce a single trait
multiple alleles An inheritance pattern in which there are more than two possible alleles for a single trait, such as human ABO blood types
x chromosome The female sex chromosome
y chromosome The male sex chromosome
sex-linked trait A characteristic that is coded for by a gene on the X chromosome or the Y chromosome
carrier An individual who has one allele for a recessive trait and thus does not exhibit that trait but can pass the allele for the trait on to its offspring

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.
