• After this slide you should do the Genetics Overview and Genetics Problems #1.
• The link to the website at the bottom gives a complete history and breakdown of royal hemophilia
• Colorblindness is a sex-linked trait. You can ask questions about each individual, you could also ask genotypes/phenotypes. (See below for sample questions) Questions you can ask: Individual 2 is most likely a: carrier female If individual 8 is not color blind, what is the probability that this individual is a carrier?: 0 Let us say individual 12 marries a normal, non-carrier female.  What is the probability that one of his sons will be color-blind? : 0 (males don’t donate X to sons)
• ### Genetics and heredity

1. 1. Genetics and Heredity
2. 2. Probability
3. 3. Probability <ul><li>The likelihood that a specific event will occur </li></ul><ul><li>Probability = # of 1 times event occurs number of possible outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>Example: What is the probability that a tossed coin will be heads? </li></ul><ul><li>½ or 50% </li></ul>
4. 4. Probability <ul><li>The First Law of Probability : the results of the first trial of a chance event do not affect the results of later trials of the same event. </li></ul><ul><li>In other words, no matter how many times a flipped coin lands on tails, every flip still has a ½ chance of tails. </li></ul>
5. 5. Probability <ul><li>Second Law of Probability: The probability of two or more independent events occurring together is the product of their separate probabilities. </li></ul><ul><li>What is the probability that a couple will have four boys? </li></ul><ul><li>50% (1/2 probability each time) </li></ul><ul><li>½ x ½ x ½ x ½ = 1/16 </li></ul>
6. 6. Inherited Traits
8. 8. Are these inherited traits? Your personality Your musical, athletic, and artistic abilities
9. 9. Think about this…. <ul><li>“ My parents have brown eyes, why are mine blue?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ My brother is tall. Why am I short?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Why does my sister have blonde hair while mine is brown?” </li></ul>
10. 10. Gregor Mendel <ul><li>These are questions that Gregor Mendel tried to answer.. </li></ul><ul><li>Born in 1822 in Austria </li></ul><ul><li>1843 – Studied Theology </li></ul><ul><li>1846-Studied Science at the University of Vienna </li></ul>Father of Genetics
11. 11. Mendel’s studies led to: <ul><li>Dominant (H) </li></ul><ul><li>Homozygous (HH or hh) </li></ul><ul><li>Genotype (HH, Hh or hh) </li></ul><ul><li>Purebred (HH or hh) </li></ul><ul><li>Recessive (h) </li></ul><ul><li>Heterozygous (Hh) </li></ul><ul><li>Phenotype (blonde, brown, red) </li></ul><ul><li>Hybrid (Hh) </li></ul>Concepts in Inheritance
12. 12. Theory of Heredity <ul><li>Inherited allele for purple P </li></ul>Inherited allele for purple P HOMOZYGOUS purple flower PP
13. 13. Theory of Heredity <ul><li>Inherited allele for purple flower (P) </li></ul>Inherited allele for pink flower ( p ) HETEROZYGOUS purple flower (P p )
14. 14. Theory of Heredity <ul><li>Inherited for pink flower ( p ) </li></ul>Inherited for pink flower ( p ) HOMOZYGOUS pink flower ( pp )
15. 15. PREDICTING HEREDITY
16. 16. PUNNETT SQUARES <ul><li>A Punnett square is a tool used to help predict the probability of offspring of a couple. </li></ul><ul><li>1. Decide the genes that could be passed on to the offspring in the gametes from each parent. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Cross the different gene/gamete possibilities for each possible offspring combination. </li></ul>
17. 17. Monohybrid Cross <ul><li>Monohybrid Cross: a cross that shows the possible offspring for one trait </li></ul><ul><li>Aa x Aa </li></ul><ul><li>A: White fur </li></ul><ul><li>a: Brown fur </li></ul>Parent Aa has what gentotype? Parent Aa can produce a gamete with either an “A” or with an “a”
18. 18. Monohybrid Cross <ul><li>Monohybrid Cross: a cross that shows the possible offspring for one trait </li></ul><ul><li>Aa x Aa </li></ul><ul><li>A: White fur </li></ul><ul><li>a: Brown fur </li></ul><ul><li>Aa produces gamete “A” or “a” </li></ul>A a A a <ul><li>Separate the two genes (as though they were separating into different gametes) and place one outside the first row on the left and the other under it outside the second row. </li></ul><ul><li>Separate the other parent genes and place at the top, one above each column. </li></ul>
19. 19. Monohybrid Cross <ul><li>Monohybrid Cross: a cross that shows the possible offspring for one trait </li></ul><ul><li>Aa x Aa </li></ul><ul><li>A: White fur </li></ul><ul><li>a: Brown fur </li></ul><ul><li>Cross over the genes to fill in the boxes of the square. </li></ul>A a A a AA Aa Aa aa

21. 21. Phenotypic Ratios <ul><li>Phenotypic Ratios compare the possible phenotypes (appearance of the offspring); how many show the dominant trait or recessive trait. </li></ul><ul><li>Phenotypic ratio: </li></ul><ul><li>Number of offspring showing the dominant trait (AA & Aa) </li></ul><ul><li>Number of offspring showing the recessive trait (aa) </li></ul><ul><li>Aa x Aa </li></ul><ul><li>A: White fur </li></ul><ul><li>a: Brown fur </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes abbreviated as: </li></ul><ul><li>PR = #show dom (AA & Aa) : #show rec (aa) </li></ul>PR = 3 : 1 A a A a AA Aa Aa aa

30. 30. What are Sex-Linked Traits? <ul><li>Traits that are located on one of the sex chromosomes (XY or XX) </li></ul>Hemophilia: Failure of blood to clot Muscular Dystrophy: wasting away of muscles Alix and Nicholas II
31. 31. Can I inherit a sex-linked disease? Fathers (XY) can only pass disorders to daughters (XX) Mothers (XX) can pass disorders to both sons (XY) and daughters (XX) Most disorders are carried on the X chromosome, so males are more likely to inherit them.
32. 32. How can I tell if I have a genetic disorder? <ul><li>Karyotypes are a “map” of all 46 (23 pair) of chromosomes. </li></ul>
33. 33. What’s wrong with this Karyotype? Is this a male or a female?
34. 34. What’s wrong with this Karyotype? Turner’s Syndrome
35. 35. What’s wrong with this Karyotype? Klinefelter’s Syndrome
36. 36. What’s wrong with this Karyotype? Down Syndrome
37. 37. Pedigree Analysis <ul><li>A pedigree shows inheritance of genetic traits over several generations </li></ul>male female Female Carrier Marriage Offspring
