    distinguishing between wild type and vestigial wing phenotypes. We also determined whether the allele that caused the vestigial wing phenotype is sex- linked or autosomal and either dominant or recessive from flies that were in the F1 generation. Our data collected by observing the sex of the F1 generation and creating a punnett square suggested that the allele for vestigial wings is an autosomal, recessive allele. From the inheritance pattern that we found, we were then able to determine the…

    Olivia Olson Dr. Alex Hill Bio A 348 9 December 2016 Tay-Sachs: Why so Selective? There are aspects of nature that puzzle the world. Scientists, as curious as they are, try to figure out and solve nature’s great mysteries. One biological phenomenon that appears is Tay-Sachs disease. This is a disorder that tends to appear in only a handful of populations around the world. For quite sometime it was a mystery as to why this deadly disease tended to only show up in certain populations; but thanks…

    Protein Synthesis Essay

    • 4 Pages

    In protein synthesis there are 3 to 4 structures that occur. In the primary structure there are covalently bonded sequences of amino acids and this happens through dehydration synthesis where complex molecules are broken down to simple components. Secondary structure happens within the protein and can repeat multiple times and this happens from the folds by the Hydrogen bonds. Finally, you reach tertiary structure where the final 3-dimensional shape is shown by the complete polypeptide chain.…

    each type. We used this data to calculate the chi square value, which we compared to the table to determine whether or not the hypothesis was true. INTRODUCTION The law of segregation states that alleles of a trait separate independently during gamete formation such that each gamete receives only one allele from each allelic pair. Genetic traits are passed down from one generation to the next in different ways. For example, autosomal inheritance is a pattern in which transmission of the trait…

    Chromosomal Inheritance

    • 986 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Chromosomal inheritance relates to how a person has 2 sets of chromosomes, 46 in total, that they inherited their parents. Chromosomes carry the genes, particularly the alleles that the offspring inherit. Gregor Mendel had no understanding of chromosomes when conducting his studies. He experimented and tested peas and discovered that some genes were dominated (showed up) while others were recessive (hidden). What he didn’t know was that chromosomes contained the genes that were responsible for…

    The small genome and the short life cycle of Drosophila melanogaster makes the use of this organism proper to understand the role of signaling pathways, mainly the Notch signaling pathway, in the development of sensory organs in organisms. The molecular interactions of some genes with the Notch signaling pathway can help us understand cell differentiation in sensory organs. The gene Hairless shows high levels of interaction with the Notch signaling pathway of Drosophila melanogaster. Hairless…

    1. In your own words, define what is a mutation? Abnormal inherited or acquired permeant alteration in the sequences of the nucleotides of the deoxyribonucleic acid of an organism may or may not change organism phenotype, it occurs with a frequency of less than1% among a population. 2. Are mutations bad or good for you? Justify your answer in either case Mutations could be good, bad, or may have little or no effect. Beneficial mutations: Some mutations if they happen they have a positive…

    Purpose: The purpose of this simulation is to demonstrate how alleles work and practice the skill of figuring out what genotype is dominate based off of the phenotype of the offsprings. Background info: Fruit flies or Drosophila melanogaster work best in experiments because Drosophila melanogaster has 60% of genes that are mutated, amplified, or deleted in human diseases. Drosophila melanogaster also has a short lifespan which makes them best for quick experiments. They also mate and develop…
