Transcript of "4. heredity and evolution"

  1. 1.  We have discussed how some amount of variation is produced even during asexual reproduction. And the number of successful variations are maximised by the process of sexual reproduction.
  2. 2.  The mechanism by which variations are created and inherited. (Heredity). The long-term consequences of the accumulation of variations are also an interesting point to be considered. (Evolution).
  3. 3.  Inheritance from the previous generation provides both a common basic body design, and subtle changes in it, for the next generation.
  4. 4.  The second generation will have differences that they inherit from the first generation. This process continues….
  5. 5.  If there were a population of bacteria living in temperate waters, and if the water temperature were to be increased by global warming, most of these bacteria would die, but the few variants resistant to heat would survive and grow further.
  6. 6.  Some of the variations might be so drastic that the new DNA copy cannot work with the cellular apparatus it inherits. Such a newborn cell will simply die.
  7. 7.  Some DNA copies that would not lead to such a drastic outcome. Surviving cells are similar, but cleverly different from each other. This inbuilt tendency for variation during reproduction is the basis for evolution
  8. 8.  Accumulation of Variation during Reproduction Variation is useful for the survival of species over time.
  9. 9.  Questions NCERT Page No. 143 (Q No. 1 and 2) 1. If a trait A exists in 10% of a population of an asexually reproducing species and a trait B exists in 60% of the same population, which trait is likely to have arisen earlier? 2. How does the creation of variations in a species promote survival?
  10. 10.  Surviving cells are similar, but cleverly different from each other.
  11. 11.  The process by which traits and characteristics are reliably inherited from the parents to offspring. A trait is a particular characteristic— anatomical, biochemical or behavioural—that is the result of gene–environment interaction.
  12. 12.  Free and attached earlobes are two variants found in human populations.
  13. 13.  This means that each trait can be influenced by both paternal and maternal DNA. Thus, in each child, for each trait there will be two versions (Allele), one inherited from each parent.
  14. 14.  An allele is two or more forms of the DNA sequence of a particular gene.There are two types-- Heterozygous – If the two alleles for a trait are different (Tt) Homozygous – If the two alleles for a trait are the same (TT)
  15. 15.  Mendel blended his knowledge of science and mathematics and was the first one to keep count of individuals exhibiting a particular trait in each generation. This helped him to arrive at the laws of inheritance
  16. 16.  The rules of heredity determine the process by which traits and characteristics are reliably inherited. The rules of heredity determine the process by which traits and characteristics are reliably inherited.
  17. 17.  Read NCERT Page No. 142-146 Write a brief biography of Gregor Johann Mendel (1822–1884)
  18. 18.  The process by which traits and characteristics are reliably inherited from the parents to offspring.
  19. 19.  This means that each trait can be influenced by both paternal and maternal DNA. Thus, for each trait there will be two versions in each child.
  20. 20.  Mendel took pea plants with Parent (P) different characteristics – a tall plant and a short plant,TT (Tall) tt (Short)
  21. 21. TT (Tall) tt (Short) Linkage of two genes located on same chromosome T t Tt (all)First Generation (F1)
  22. 22.  The progeny of the TT X TT parental plants were, of course, all tall.TT (all are tall)
  23. 23. Tt X TtFirst Generation F1 X F1 ?
  24. 24. Tt X Tt SpermFirst Generation T t F1 X F1 T Since both the genes are carried on the sane chromosome they do not separate from each other at Egg meiosis, F1 Progeny produces only t two types of gametes.
  25. 25. Tt X TtFirst Generation F1 X F1 T Sperm t TT Tt T Tall Tall EggSecond Generation Tt tt t Tall Short (F2)
  26. 26. Phenotype - the way an organism looks, Examples: Tall or ShortGenotype - the gene combination of an organism, Ex:- TT, Tt, tt TT Tt Tall Tall Tt tt Tall Short
  27. 27.  Were the tall plants in the Tt (all) F1 generation exactly theFirst Generation (F1) same as the tall plants of the parent generation?
  28. 28. Tt (all)  But only the tallness trait was expressed in F1.First Generation (F1)  These two may be identical, or may be different, depending on the parentage.
  29. 29.  The trait that is observed in the offspring is the dominant trait (uppercase)TT Tt  Traits like ‘T’ are called dominant traits,  The trait that disappears in theTt tt offspring is the recessive trait (lowercase)  While those that behave like ‘t’ are called recessive traits.
  30. 30.  Rules for the Inheritance of Traits (Incase of single trait) In the F1 Progeny all were tall plants In the F2 Progeny all were not tall (ratio 3:1)
  31. 31. Questions NCERT Page No. 147 (Q No. 1), Page 1441. How do Mendel’s experiments show that traits may be dominant or recessive? Explain with diagram.2. What experiment would we do to confirm that the F2 generation did in fact have a 1:2:1 ratio of TT, Tt and tt trait combinations?
  32. 32. TT (Tall) tt (Short) T t  Were the tall plants in the F1 Tt (all) generation exactly the same asFirst Generation (F1) the tall plants of the parent generation?
  33. 33. Tt X TtFirst Generation F1 X F1 T Sperm t TT Tt T Tall Tall EggSecond Generation Tt tt t Tall Short (F2)
  34. 34.  The trait that is observed in the offspring is the dominant trait (uppercase)TT Tt  Traits like ‘T’ are called dominant traits,  The trait that disappears in theTt tt offspring is the recessive trait (lowercase)  While those that behave like ‘t’ are called recessive traits.

A man with blood group A marries a woman with bloodgroup O and their daughter has blood group O. Is thisinformation enough to tell you which of the traits – bloodgroup A or O – is dominant? Why or why not?
  42. 42.  The process by which traits and characteristics are reliably inherited from the parents to offspring.
  43. 43.  This means that each trait can be influenced by both paternal and maternal DNA. Thus, for each trait there will be two versions in each child.

  50. 50.  This means that each pea plant must have two sets of all genes (Allele), one inherited from each parent. An allele is two or more forms of the DNA sequence of a particular gene.
  51. 51.  Each gene set is present in the body cell as separate independent pieces, each called a chromosome. Thus, each cell will have two copies of each chromosome, one each from the male and female parents. Every germ cell will take one chromosome from each pair and these may be of either maternal or paternal origin. When two germ cells combine, they will restore the normal number of chromosomes in the progeny, ensuring the stability of the DNA of the species.
  52. 52.  They reproduce sexually They have two distinct, male and female, sex cells called gametes Their traits are easy to isolate. They can be crossed easily.

  64. 64.  We learnt that the chromosomes in the nucleus of a cell contain information for inheritance of features from parents to next generation in the form of DNA
  65. 65.  If the information is changed, different proteins will be made. Different proteins will eventually lead to altered body designs.

  67. 67.  This creates two copies of the DNA in a reproducing cell, and they will need to be separated from each other.
  68. 68.  DNA copies separate, each with its own cellular apparatus. Effectively, a cell divides to give rise to two cells.
  69. 69.  The DNA copies generated will be similar, but may not be identical to the original. This inbuilt tendency for variation during reproduction is the basis for evolution.

  78. 78.  When change in reproductive tissues pass (as a new trait) on to the progeny (DNA of the germ cells), evolutions come.
  79. 79.  If we breed a group of mice, all their progeny will have tails, as expected. Now, if the tails of these mice are removed by surgery in each generation, do these tailless mice have tailless progeny?
  80. 80.  It makes sense because removal of the tail (acquired trait) cannot change the genes of the germ cells of the mice. Acquired trait can not pass on to the next generation. So, it is important to inherit GENES to bring evolution.
  81. 81.  This is the reason why the ideas of heredity and genetics that we have discussed earlier are so essential for understanding evolution.
  82. 82.  Darwin formulated his hypothesis that evolution took place due to natural selection. But he did not know the mechanism whereby variations arose in the species.
  83. 83.  Evolution is the change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms through successive generations. This change results from interactions between processes that introduce variation into a population.
  84. 84. Mendel’s experiments give usthe mechanism for theinheritance of traits from onegeneration to the next. Darwin’s theory of evolution tells us how life evolved from simple to more complex forms.

  120. 120.  Evolution cannot be said to ‘progress’ from ‘lower’ forms to ‘higher’ forms. Rather, evolution seems to have given rise to more complex body designs even while the simpler body designs continue to flourish.
  121. 121.  A new species has emerged. It will all depend on the environment. It is just that natural selection and genetic drift have together led to the formation of a population that cannot reproduce with the original one.
  122. 122.  Rather, both human beings and chimpanzees have a common ancestor a long time ago. That common ancestor is likely to have been neither human or chimpanzee. Instead, the two resultant species have probably evolved in their own separate ways to give rise to the current forms.
  123. 123.  There is no biological basis to the notion of human races. Study of the evolution of human beings indicates that all of us belong to a single species that evolved in Africa and spread across the world in stages.
