Variationis demonstrated by the differences in appearance that offspring show from parents and siblings
Geneticsis the scientific study of heredity and variation
Genesare the units of heredity and are made up of segments of DNA
A gene’s specific position along a chromosome is called itslocus
ASexual Reproductiona single individual passes all of its genes to its offspring without the fusion of gametes
Cloneis a group of genetically identical individuals from the same parent
Sexual Reproductiontwo parents give rise to offspring that have unique combinations of genes inherited from the two parents

Section 3

Question Answer
_____ is the union of gametes (the sperm and the egg)fertilization
The fertilized egg is called a _____ and has one set of chromosomes from each parentzygote
Meiosis takes place in two consecutive cell divisions, called _____ and _____meiosis I ; meiosis II
In early prophase I, each chromosome pairs with its homolog and _____ occurscrossing over
X-shaped regions called _____ are sites of crossoverschiasmata
A zipper-like structure called the _____ holds the homologs together tightlysynaptonemal complex
During _____, DNA breaks are repaired, joining DNA from one nonsister chromatid to the corresponding segment of anothersynapsis
Crossing over produces ______, which combine DNA inherited from each parentrecombinant chromosomes
A heritable feature that varies among individuals (such as flower color) is called acharacter
Each variant for a character, such as purple or white color for flowers, is called atrait
True Breedingplants that produce offspring of the same variety when they self-pollinate
In a typical experiment, Mendel mated two contrasting, true-breeding varieties, a process calledhybridization
Possible combinations of sperm and egg can be shown using a _____, a capital letter represents a dominant allele, and a lowercase letter represents a recessive allelepunnett square
An organism with two identical alleles for a character is called a _____homozygote
To determine the genotype we can carry out a _____, breeding the mystery individual with a homozygous recessive individualtestcross
The F1 offspring produced in this cross were _____, heterozygous for one charactermonohybrids
Crossing two true-breeding parents differing in two characters produces _____ in the F1 generation, heterozygous for both charactersdihybrids
Using a dihybrid cross, Mendel developed the _____, it states that each pair of alleles segregates independently of any other pair of alleles during gamete formationlaw of independent assortment
The _____ states that the probability that two or more independent events will occur together is the product of their individual probabilitiesmultiplication rule

Section 4

In _____, the phenotype of F1 hybrids is somewhere between the phenotypes of the two parental varietiesincomplete dominence
In _____, two dominant alleles affect the phenotype in separate, distinguishable wayscodominence
Tay-Sache Diseasea dysfunctional enzyme causes an accumulation of lipids in the brain
Most genes have multiple phenotypic effects, a property calledpleiotropy
