  3. 3. Heredity <ul><li>The human genetic code is transferred by gametes. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sperm </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ova </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The sex cells from the mother and father that form a new cell at conception (aka sperm and ovum). </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Heredity Fertilization = sperm + ovum ( the gametes ) = one set of paired chromosomes = single new cell, a zygote.
  5. 5. <ul><li>The 23 rd chromosome determines the sex of the child. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Females are XX. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Males are XY. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The FATHER’s sperm determines the sex of the child. </li></ul></ul>

  7. 7. <ul><li>Concordance rate </li></ul>Some Terms to Remember
  8. 8. Sandra Scarr: Genetics can influence environment in 3 ways: <ul><ul><ul><li>Active (niche-picking) genotype-environment effects - children seek out environments they find compatible and stimulating </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Passive genotype-environment effects - parents raise children in the way in which they are comfortable </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Evocative genotype-environment effects - child’s characteristics elicit certain types of environments </li></ul></ul></ul>

  13. 13. The Start of Life Alternate forms of fertilization (Reproductive Technology) Artificial Insemination
  14. 14. The Start of Life Alternate forms of fertilization (Reproductive Technology) In vitro fertilization (IVF) Eggs are harvested from the woman’s ovaries, fertilized in the lab, and then deposited in the uterus
