Unit 5: Heredity
500 possible mastery points
About this unitLet's dive into the complex world of genetics! In this unit, you'll explore the intricacies of meiosis, learn the basics of Mendelian and non-Mendelian genetics, and discover how genes and the environment can interact to shape the traits we see.
Meiosis: the square dance of gamete production! Grab a partner; cross on over, split in half, and split again!
Mendel's theory of genetics wouldn't be widely accepted until decades after his death. The peas were tasty, though.
Some traits don't follow Mendelian rules. What a bunch of rebels.
Can the same genes produce different results?
Each human chromosome contains many genes, but is made up of just one long DNA molecule.
