Part 1 Meiosis is the most important part of heredity and sexual reproduction. Explain the process of meiosis, focusing on the major differences between meiosis I and meiosis II and important events that are happening during the process. You should also describe how meiosis is different than mitosis (process, cells produced, and anything else significant). Finally, you should explain in detail how meiosis and sexual reproduction produces genetic variability (in three different ways) and why this is important to a population. Part 2 Mendel’s laws of segregation and independent assortment explain the basics of heredity. Punnett squares are used to follow traits passed on to offspring. In order to understand this better, provide an example of a monohybrid cross and a dihybrid cross not from the textbook, and be sure to explain specifically what is outside the boxes (what is being represented) and what is inside the boxes (what process this represents). Also, indicate why a testcross would be used and what is meant by dominance and recessiveness. Is the “normal” allele always the dominant one? If not, why not? Part 3 In order to understand the “exceptions” to Mendelian inheritance, you should know the inheritance patterns that appear to alter single-gene phenotypic ratios: lethal alleles, multiple alleles, incomplete dominance, codominance, epistasis, penetrance, expressivity, pleiotropy, phenocopy, and genetic heterogeneity. For 5 of the 10 inheritence patterns I’ve just listed, provide both an explanation and an example (not from the textbook) of those patterns. You should also explain how one inheritance pattern is different from another, closely related pattern (such as how codominance is different from incomplete dominance or how penetrance is different from expressivity). For each of these three parts, please provide at least one scientific source (not including the textbook) where you located information on these topics. Also, as with anything turned in, please be sure to write at a college level. References: Chapter 3, Human Genetics: Concepts and Applications. 11th ed. McGraw-Hill/Irwin.
