3-2-1 Assignment- Genetic Inheritance 3 Main Points:
1. The cell contains three important things. Those three things are the nucleus, mitochondria, and the ribosomes. The nucleus consists of DNA and RNA molecules which contain hereditary information that has a jurisdiction of the cell’s purpose. The mitochondria contains mtDNA distinctive influence in human developmental research. Lastly, the ribosomes are the basic necessity to the process of protein synthesis.
2. Meiosis is a process where specialized cells split and evolve, becoming sperm or egg cells. It occurs in sexually reproducing organisms. Also, recombination occurs with the pairing of homologous chromosomes in an exchange of genetic information.
3. Homozygous and heterozygous both have something in common which is that

Protein synthesis occurs outside of the nucleus in the ribosome. It is guided within the cell by the most substantial operation of DNA. Also, protein make up a heart muscle.
2. There are two specific types of chimerism that can occur in humans. The first type is called microchimerism, where only a small portion of the body has a distinct cell line from the rest of the body. The second type is tetragametic chimerism and this occurs when two separate ova are fertilized by two sperm and produce two zygotes. 1 Discussion Question: Is the Punnett square the only way to determine offspring phenotypes? A phenotype is a noticeable attribute. In my opinion, the Punnett square is the only thing that is able to predict an offspring’s phenotype. For example, scientists want to figure out how one child has a different eye color than his three siblings, his mother, and his father. The child has green eyes and the rest of his family has brown eyes. Well, both the father and mother have the dominant brown eyes, but carry the recessive gene for green eyes. Therefore, three out of four children have inherited brown eyes while the fourth child inherited green
