Meiosis review

  1. 1. MEIOSIS Review
  2. 2. Parents can produce many types of offspring <ul><li>Families will have resemblances, but no two are exactly alike </li></ul>
  3. 3. Every cell has a nucleus Every nucleus has chromosomes The number of chromosomes depends on the species Ex.  Humans have 46
  4. 4. GENES are located on chromosomes Genes control the TRAITS of the individual
  5. 5. Chromosomes come in matching sets -these are called homologous pairs
  6. 6. <ul><li>Homologous = matching pairs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>each cell has 22 of these </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The last pair is the X and Y chromosome which determines the sex of the offspring </li></ul><ul><li>The picture in the last slide of a set of human chromosomes is a karyotype </li></ul>
  7. 7. Cells in your body have a complete set (all 46) - they are called DIPLOID   Sex cells (sperm and eggs) only have half (23)  - they are called HAPLOID
  8. 9. Find the homologous chromosome for the three under the line. Don’t go by size…look at the patterns. A B C
  9. 10. When GAMETES combine, the ZYGOTE (offspring) gets half from mom (23) and half from dad (23) ZYGOTES are diploid  (46)
  10. 11. When sperm and egg meet, their chromosomes much match for the zygote to develop properly.
  11. 12. 1.  Matching sets of chromosomes are called ________ pairs 2.  Egg and sperm combine to make a _______________ 3.  Egg and sperm are both known as _______________ 4.  A cell that only has half of a set of chromosomes is said to be _______________. 5.  Genes are located on  ___________________ Let's review terms......
  12. 13. The process of creating a gamete (sex cell) is called MEIOSIS It is similar to mitosis, but  will produce 4 daughter cells that are each haploid.
  13. 14. OOGENESIS  - makes eggs (ovum)
  14. 15. Spermatogenesis - makes sperm
  15. 16. PROPHASE I of MEIOSIS - homologous pairs form   -chromosomes trade genes,    CROSSING -OVER
  16. 17. Crossing-over increases the number of possible gene combinations
  17. 18. Steps of Meiosis
