4Gregor Mendel Austrian monk and scientist Identified principles of genetics by studying pea plantsPicked peas because of 7 observable traits, traits appeared and disappeared, small and grow easily and can self pollinate.Gregor Mendel
6Mendel’s Experimental Design Started with pure parents of varieties (ex. Purple or white flowers) – P generationCross pollinated parents to get F1 generationSelf pollinated the offspring – F2 generation – Every time got a 3:1 ratio of the 2 varieties.
7Many genes have different form ex Many genes have different form ex. Tall or short pea plants Variants of a particular gene = AllelesAlleles
8DOMINANT TRAIT Recessive Trait the trait that masks the recessive trait.Recessive Traitthe trait that was not expressed in Mendel’s F1 generation.
9Meiosis and The Laws of Heredity Tuesday, October 30th
10GametesMeiosis produces haploid gametes (sex cells) Haploid means half of the genetic material to make a fertilized zygote (embryo) Diploid is a full double set of genes When gametes combine in fertilization, the number of chromosomes is restored (diploid).
11Meiosis Similar to mitosis but sexual reproduction Goes through same stages as mitosis but twiceForms specialized sex cells called gametesTwo rounds of nuclear division2 stages called meiosis I and meiosis II
23What is a Punnett Square? a diagram that is used to predict an outcome of a particular cross used by biologists to determine the probability of an offspring having a particular genotype. Summary of every possible combination of one maternal allele with one paternal allele for each gene being studied

54Gene Technology and Agriculture November 9th Video from desktop
55Discussion Questions completed and discussed prior to, during, and after video How would you define gene technology? What role can gene technology have on agriculture in our country? What are some examples of gene technology used in the video? Does ethics play a role in gene technology? In what ways? Does gene technology alter the nutritional value of health of a product?
