It's a history book - a narrative of the journey of our species through time. It's a shop manual, with an incredibly detailed blueprint for building every human cell. It has been recognized for approximately a century that genetic factors play a role in human disease, but until recently genetics was perceived as focusing only. PDF | Kapiel, T. ().

A fruit flies B humans C yeast D mice E zebrafish Which of the following statements is TRUE? A Each subdiscipline of genetics is very specific as to what is explored and does not overlap with the other subdisciplines. B All phenotypes or traits are always determined by multiple genes.
C Albinism arises from the overexpression of the gene that controls the synthesis and storage of melanin. D Humans make excellent model organisms because they have a variety of well-defined traits.
E None of the statements provided are true. Page 1 Full file at https: A All genomes are encoded in DNA only. B All genomes are encoded in nucleic acids. C All genomes are encoded in proteins only. D The genetic instructions are decoded completely differently in each organism. E Molecular studies suggest life evolved from multiple primordial ancestors. Which of the following traits would make a species useful as a model genetic organism?
Select all that apply. A large number of progeny B long generation time C small size D ability to be studied in a laboratory E ability to be propagated inexpensively Which one of the following topics belongs to a different subdiscipline of genetics when compared with the rest? A mechanism of gene regulation B allele frequencies of a certain gene in different environments C transcription D chemical alternation of chromosomes E mechanism of DNA replication The fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster is an important model system for studying inheritance in animals and genetic control of animal development, including humans.
If researchers ultimately want to understand a biological process in humans, why might they want to study the process in fruit flies first? A Fruit flies are relatively easy to genetically manipulate and to isolate mutations. B Fruit flies have short generation times and produce relatively large numbers of progeny. C Fruit flies have simpler genomes than do humans. D Fruit flies share all important physiological and developmental processes with humans. E Fruit flies are small and easy to raise.
The complete genetic makeup of any organism is referred to as a: A phylogeny. B pheynotype. C genome. D genotype. E single-nucleotide polymorphism. A change in allele frequency within a population over time leads to: A a genome. B a phenotype. C a genotype.
D mutations. E evolution. Assume that a geneticist is doing a study with a wild mouse species. She captures of these mice, takes a DNA sample from each, and sequences the same specific gene from each mouse. This gene has two alleles within this population.
She then calculates the frequency of each of the two alleles from the sequencing results. Which subdivisions of genetics would this study include? A transmission and population genetics B transmission and molecular genetics C molecular genetics only D molecular and population genetics E transmission genetics only In light of this example and others that you might be aware of, what can you conclude about particular alleles such as the allele for albinism?
A An allele that leads to an abnormal phenotype will be rare in most populations but common in Native American populations. B An allele that leads to abnormal phenotype will not be beneficial in any population. C An allele that leads to an abnormal phenotype may be beneficial in some environments but harmful in others.
D An allele that leads to an abnormal phenotype will rise in frequency after many generations. E An allele that leads to an abnormal phenotype will soon disappear from a population.
Evaluate fruit flies as a model system for human biology. What are their strengths and weaknesses as a model system?
What common features of heredity suggest that all life on Earth evolved from a common ancestor? Page 2 Full file at https: Why might bacteria and viruses be good model organisms for studying the basics of inheritance?
Describe two advantages over studying genetics in mice, dogs, or humans. Many good ideas in science ultimately turn out to be incorrect, and this has happened several times in the history of genetics. In your own words, state one idea in the history of genetics that turned out to be incorrect. Many good ideas in science ultimately turn out to be incorrect and this has happened several times in the history of genetics.
Why do you think a particular idea was widely accepted by scholars of that time? Include in your answer some evidence in favor of the idea, observations that seemed to support the idea, or other rationale for accepting the idea. Summarize the evidence that ultimately caused the idea to be rejected by modern geneticists. Describe one way in which discoveries in genetics currently impact your daily life apart from this course.
Describe one way in which discoveries in genetics will likely impact your life in the future. Describe a discovery in genetics or an area of current research that you are concerned about that might have a negative impact on your life in the future. Explain why you think it might have a negative impact on you personally. The experiments of Gregor Mendel can be placed into which subdivision of genetics?
A molecular genetics B population genetics C transmission genetics D molecular genetics and transmission genetics E population genetics and transmission genetics Among the model genetic organisms, Escherichia coli, a single-celled bacterium, is a prokaryote; Saccharomyces cerevisiae, one-celled yeast, is a eukaryote, as are Caenorhabditis elegans, a multicellular nematode worm, and Arabidopisis thaliana, a multicellular plant.
Which of these organisms would NOT contain membrane-bound organelles? In the late s what important discovery in genetics was made? B The first recombinant DNA experiments were performed that started the biotechnology field. C DNA sequencing methods were first discovered. D Genes were found to be located on chromosomes. E Tiny RNAs were discovered that play important roles in the regulation of gene expression.
In , Ian Wilmut and his colleagues created clones of sheep, using mammary cells from an adult animal Figure 1. More recently, such cloning has been achieved in several mammalian species, including cows, mice, goats, pigs, and cats.
In , the first pet was cloned, a cat named Carbon copy, or Copycat see photo at the beginning of the chapter.
The cloning of mammals provides the potential for many practical applications. With regard to livestock, cloning would enable farmers to use cells from their best individuals to create genetically homogeneous herds.
This could be advantageous in terms of agricultural yield, although such a genetically homogeneous herd may be more susceptible to certain diseases. However, people have become greatly concerned with the possibility of human cloning. This prospect has raised serious ethical questions. Within the past few years, legislative bills have been introduced that involve bans on human cloning.
Finally, genetic technologies provide the means to modify the traits of animals and plants in ways that would have been unimaginable just a few decades ago. Figure 1. When exposed to blue or ultraviolet UV light, the protein emits a striking green-colored light.
Scientists were able to clone the GFP gene from a sample of jellyfish cells and then introduce this gene into laboratory mice. The green fluorescent protein is made throughout the cells of their bodies. As a result, their skin, eyes, and organs give off an eerie green glow when exposed to UV light.
Only their fur does not glow. The expression of green fluorescent protein allows researchers to identify particular proteins in cells or specific body parts.
The lamb on the left is Dolly, the first mammal to be cloned. She was cloned from the cells of a Finn Dorset a white-faced sheep. A description of how Dolly was produced is presented in Chapter The GFP gene was cloned and introduced into mice. These mice glow green, just like jellyfish! This allows researchers to identify and sort males from females. This enables the researchers to identify and sort males from females. Why is this useful? The ability to rapidly sort mosquitoes makes it possible to produce populations of sterile males and then release the sterile males without the risk of releasing additional females.
The release of sterile males may be an effective means of controlling mosquito populations because females only breed once before they die. Mating with a sterile male prevents a female from producing offspring. Overall, as we move forward in the twenty-first century, the excitement level in the field of genetics is high, perhaps higher than it has ever been. The journal office will communicate with the authors if issues arise or screening indicates a manuscript is not eligible for posting to bioRxiv.
