A method to separate genetic material (DNA) into different sizes of fragments in order to diagnose genetic fingerprinting.
A test used to identify the size, shape, and number of chromosomes in a cell. It allows to identify chromosomal mutations and the gender of an organism.
A process in which genes are exchanged between homologous chromosomes to create genetically diverse gametes. This process occurs during prophase 1 of meiosis.
Accomplished by crossing over in meiosis.
Haploid cells commonly known as sex cells (Eggs or Sperm).
A genotype with two dominant alleles. Represented by two capital letters- BB
A genotype with one dominant allele and one recessive allele. Represented by a capital letter and lower case letter- Bb
A genotype with two recessive alleles. Represented by two lower case letters-bb.
A chromosomal mutation where a chromosome or chromatids fail to separate correctly during cell division- meiosis or mitosis. This results in daughter cells with extra chromosomes or with fewer chromosomes.
Uncontrolled cell division due to faulty checkpoints in the cell cycle. These cells typically skip G-0 and continue dividing constantly.
A gene mutation in which one base or several bases are deleted from the gene leading to a frameshift of the reading frame.
A gene mutation where one base is substituted for another base.
The variant gene that is always expressed.
The variant gene that is only expressed when its part of a homozygous genotype.
The life of a cell that includes the stages of G1, S, G2 and M.
A type of reduction division that results in four genetically diverse gametes (sex cells).
A type of division that results in two identical somatic (body) cells.
