Mendelian genetics slides

  1. 1. Mendelian GeneticsHow we inherit our genes.
  2. 2. Gregor MendelGenetic inheritance wasfirst explained by GregorMendel in 1866.
  3. 3. Why Care?  To understand genetic diseases  To create new genetic variations  To better understand evolution
  4. 4. How are genetic traits passed on?DNA Transcription RNA Translation Protein ?I think parents pass on their __________ to their offspring DNA Reminder: Draw RNA out overview Protein
  5. 5. Review
  6. 6. Review
  7. 7. How are genetic traits inherited?What kind of cells do you need to make a baby? Gametes: a cell that fuses with another cell during fertilization - Sperm and egg cells - Sex cells Our genetic inheritance is really complicated so let first focus on the simple pea plant.
  8. 8. Somatic Cells Somatic Cells: Cells that do not participate in sexual reproduction - ex: muscle cells, neural cells, skin cells
  9. 9. How are genetic traits inherited?:Mendel’s Pea Plant Experiments
  10. 10. How are genetic traits inherited?Mendel’s Experiment demonstrates theLaw of segregation (the first law): parents pass on a randomlyselected copy (allele) of a gene to its offspring.
  11. 11. The second lawLaw of Independent Assortment: genes for different traits usually willbe passed on separately from each other.
