Questions on the sexual reproductive system in mammals, the urogenital system, fertilization, and cleavage
1. Trace the pathway of a sperm from the male testes to the uterine tube of a female. 2. Fertilization involves much more than a mere restoration of the diploid chromosome number. What does the process of fertilization entail on the part of both the egg and sperm? What are the effects of fertilization? 3. Why is the term
Is eukaryotic DNA packaged in the cell in the form of a double helix? Ideas are explained.
We have to attach all of the sources. I am having trouble finding anything but examples and biology teacher notes. I have worked on this for 2 days and only have an opening statement that seems to pretty much sum up everything. I need to avoid unnecessary information but I feel I have limited resources. Can someone please el

In Aspergillus, the genes y (yellow), os (osmotic), c (colonial), leu (leucine-requiring), and a (aconidial) are located on the long arm of chromosome 3. A diploid was made between a haploid wild type and a haploid of genotype y os c leu a. From the green diploid, yellow diploid sectors appeared. When these were sampled and test
