Genetisches Lingo
An organism is diploid if it inherits two variants, or alleles, of each gene, one from each parent. These two alleles constitute the genotype for a…
Punnett-Quadrate
A Punnett square displays the possible genotypes offspring can inherit from two parental genotypes. If a trait’s inheritance pattern (e.g.,…
Monohybrid-Kreuzungen
In the 1850s and 1860s, Gregor Mendel investigated inheritance by performing monohybrid crosses in pea plants. He crossed two plants that were…
Dihybride Kreuzungen
To determine whether traits are inherited together or separately, Gregor Mendel crossed pea plants that differed in two traits. These parental…
Mendelsche Regeln
When crossing pea plants, Mendel noticed that one of the parental traits would sometimes disappear in the first generation of offspring, called the…
Mendelsche Regeln II
While Mendel’s Law of Segregation states that the two alleles for one gene are separated into different gametes, a different question of how…
Testkreuz
Alleles are different forms of the same gene. Humans and other diploid organisms inherit two alleles of every gene, one from each parent. An allele…
Stammbaum-Analyse
A pedigree is a diagram displaying a family’s history of a trait. Analyzing pedigrees can reveal (1) whether a trait is dominant or…
Wahrscheinlichkeitsgesetze
The probability of inheriting a trait can be calculated using the sum and product rules. The sum rule is used to calculate the probability of…
Mehrere Alleleigenschaften
Multiple allelism describes genes that exist in three or more allelic forms. Although diploid organisms, like humans, normally possess only two…
Chromosomale Vererbungstheorie
In 1866, Gregor Mendel published the results of his pea plant breeding experiments, providing evidence for predictable patterns in the inheritance of…
Nicht-nukleare Vererbung
Most DNA resides in the nucleus of a cell. However, some organelles in the cell cytoplasm⁠—such as chloroplasts and…
X-chromatische Merkmale
In most mammalian species, females have two X sex chromosomes and males have an X and Y. As a result, mutations on the X chromosome in females may be…
Geschlechtsgebundene Störungen
Like autosomes, sex chromosomes contain a variety of genes necessary for normal body function. When a mutation in one of these genes results in…
X-Aktivierung
The human X chromosome contains over ten times the number of genes as in the Y chromosome. Since males have only one X chromosome, and females have…
Epistase
In addition to multiple alleles at the same locus influencing traits, numerous genes or alleles at different locations may interact and influence…
Polygene Eigenschaften
When more than one gene is responsible for a given phenotype, the trait is considered polygenic. Human height is a polygenic trait. Studies have…
Pleotropie
Pleiotropy is the phenomenon in which a single gene impacts multiple, seemingly unrelated phenotypic traits. For example, defects in the SOX10 gene…
Natur und Pflege
Many human characteristics, like height, are shaped by both nature—in other words, by our genes—and by nurture, or our environment. For…
