I have a major question about the hereditary genes.
Using Mendelian genetics you can determine the likelihood of your eye color, your hair color, some things that fall in these lines, but at the age of 25 I would like to know how I can determine when I will have a head full of white hair. My father has some white hair and my
I understand that Koch's postulates have limitations, but I don't understand how that plays a role in molecular genetics.
Here is my question.
Given the limitations of Koch's postulates, what role do you see for molecular genetics and associated techniques in addressing the exceptions to the postulates?
1. What is the state of the DNA at the end of meiosis I? What about at the end of meiosis II?
2. Why are chromosomes important?
3. How are Meiosis I and Meiosis II different?
4. Name two ways meiosis contributes to genetic recombination.
5. Why do you use non-sister chromatids to demonstrate crossing over?
6. Why is it nec
Can microbiology assist human genetics? How the alkaptonuria (black urine disease) mutation was identified?
Many of the processes that convert one material to another are common to many organisms. Some were preserved during evolution and they are similar among
bacteria, plants, animals and humans.
