  • Transcript

    • 1. WARM-UP ACTIVITY
      • 1 ) Choose a partner.
      • 2) On the piece of paper provided, write down one of each of the following letters :
      • B or b
      • C or c
      • W or w
      • D or d
      • L or l
      • F or f
      • P or p
      • 3) Hang on to your paper – don’t show any other group!
      Example: b C W D l f P
    • 2. INTRODUCTION TO GENETICS
    • 3. NOTE:
      • Terms in green are definitions
      • – these are key terms to know
      • Terms in blue are important words or concepts
      • – please make note
    • 4.
      • Who was Gregor Mendel?
      • 1822-1884
      • Austrian monk
      • Known as the
      • “ Father of Genetics”
    • 5.
      • Gregor Mendel
      • Studied the inheritance of traits (characteristics) in pea plants
        • Found that the plants’ offspring retained traits of the parents
      • From these experiments, Mendel developed The Laws of Inheritance
    • 6. Definitions: trait: a characteristic that can be passed from parent to offspring heredity: the passing of traits from parents to offspring genetics: the study of heredity
    • 7.
      • Inheritance
      • Mendel stated that physical traits are inherited as “particles”
      • Mendel did not know that the “particles” were actually chromosomes and DNA
    • 8. Traits in Pea Plants Pea plants have many different traits Some traits are dominant over others Allele: a form of a gene (different bases along the DNA) Dominant: allele that is expressed (regardless of its counterpart allele); represented by a capital letter (e.g. T) Recessive: allele that is expressed only when its counterpart allele is also recessive ; represented by a small letter (e.g. t) Examples of traits in pea plants
    • 9. PUNNETT SQUARE
      • Used to help solve genetics problems
      • Shows what the offspring of a female and male parent will look like
      An example of a Punnett square Male Female
    • 10. PUNNETT SQUARE
      • What alleles will the offspring of two parents have?
      • What will the offspring look like?
      Genotype: the combination of alleles for a trait e.g. TT, Tt, tt Phenotype: the physical feature resulting from a genotype e.g. tall, short Short
    • 11. GENOTYPE AND PHENOTYPE Genotype of alleles: P = purple flower p = white flower All genes occur in pairs, so 2 alleles affect a characteristic Possible combinations are: Genotypes PP Pp pp Phenotypes purple purple white
    • 12. GENOTYPES
      • Homozygous genotype:
      • gene combination involving 2 dominant or 2 recessive genes (e.g. TT or tt) ; also called pure  
      • Heterozygous genotype:
      • gene combination of 1 dominant and 1 recessive allele (e.g. Tt) ; also called hybrid
      • Note: Heterozygous offspring will express the dominant allele (T) over the recessive allele (t) because the dominant allele is ‘stronger’ than the recessive allele
    • 13. GENERATION “GAP”
      • Parental P 1 generation: the parental generation in a breeding experiment.
      • F 1 generation: the 1 st generation offspring in a breeding experiment (1st filial generation)
        • Result from breeding individuals from the P 1 generation
      • F 2 generation: the 2 nd generation offspring in a breeding experiment (2nd filial generation)
        • Result from breeding individuals from the F 1 generation
    • 14. GENERATION “GAP” Parent generation (P1) 1 st filial generation (F1) 2 nd filial generation (F2)
    • 15. BREED THE P1 GENERATION P1 = tall (TT) x short (tt) pea plants T T t t
    • 16. BREED THE P1 GENERATION: SOLUTION P1 = tall (TT) x short (tt) pea plants t t T T Tt Tt Tt Tt All Tt = tall (heterozygous tall) produces the F 1 generation
    • 17. BREED THE F1 GENERATION F1 = tall (Tt) x tall (Tt) pea plants T t T t
    • 18. BREED THE F1 GENERATION: SOLUTION F1 = tall (Tt) x tall (Tt) pea plants T t T t TT Tt Tt tt produces the F 2 generation 1/4 (25%) = TT 1/2 (50%) = Tt 1/4 (25%) = tt 1:2:1 genotype 3:1 phenotype
    • 19. FOLLOWING THE GENERATIONS Cross 2 pure plants TT x tt Results in all hybrids Tt Cross 2 hybrids, results in 3 Tall & 1 Short TT, Tt, tt
    • 20. GREGOR MENDEL RAP
      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvR_Sdm1orU
    • 21. ACTIVITY!
      • As budding scientists, you will get the chance to see the results of a cross of the P1 parental generation!
      • How, you may ask?
      • Well, by making your own sperm and eggs!
    • 22. INSTRUCTIONS
      • 1) Working with a partner, you will be assigned the
      • task of making either a paper maché sperm or an egg.
      • 2) Add your group’s piece of paper with your genetic code inside the balloon provided.
      • 3) Blow up your balloon, tie it off, and begin paper maché-ing! The supplies will be provided on your lab bench.
      • 4) Only put 2 layers of newsprint around your balloon or it won’t dry.
      • 5) Leave your balloon to dry on top of a big piece of newspaper.
      • 6) Add your group members’ name to the tie of the balloon using a piece of masking tape.
    • 23. HOMEWORK FOR NEXT CLASS:
      • Complete the Genetics Practice Problems worksheet
      • Read over class notes and check out the class blog: http://msoonscience.blogspot.com/
