2 Jeopardy Gregor Mendel Alleles & Genes Mendel’s Principles Patterns of Inheritance Independent Assortment Q $100 Q $200 Q $300 Q $400 Q $500 Q $100 Q $200 Q $300 Q $400 Q $500 Final Jeopardy Source:

3 $100 Question from Gregor Mendel What was the name given to Gregor Mendel?

4 $100 Answer from Gregor Mendel The Father of Genetics

5 $200 Question from Gregor Mendel What did Mendel use to carry out his work?

6 $200 Answer from Gregor Mendel Garden Peas

7 $300 Question from Gregor Mendel What type of pea plants did Mendel carry in his garden?

8 $300 Answer from Gregor Mendel True-breeding & self-pollinating

9 $400 Question from Gregor Mendel What did Mendel conclude determines biological inheritance?

10 $400 Answer from Gregor Mendel Factors that are passed from one generation to the next

11 $500 Question from Gregor Mendel Why were true-breeding pea plants important for Mendel’s experiments?

12 $500 Answer from Gregor Mendel They have 2 identical alleles for a gene, so in a genetic cross, each parent contributes only one form of a gene.

13 $100 Question from Alleles & Genes What individual characteristics are determined by factors that are passed from one parental generation to the next?

14 $100 Answer from Alleles & Genes Genes

15 $200 Question from Alleles & Genes What is segregation?

16 $200 Answer from Alleles & Genes Separation of alleles

17 $300 Question from Alleles & Genes What is the principle called that states that some alleles are dominant and others are recessive?

18 $300 Answer from Alleles & Genes Principle of dominance

19 $400 Question from Alleles & Genes What evidence did Mendel use to explain how segregation occurs?

20 $400 Answer from Alleles & Genes A short plant appeared in the F2 generation, proving that the plant had only recessive alleles.

21 $500 Question from Alleles & Genes What happens to alleles between the P generation and the F2 generation?

22 $500 Answer from Alleles & Genes The two alleles of the P generation separate during gamete formation. Each gamete carries a single allele from each parent. As a result, the F2 generation has new alleles.

23 $100 Question from Mendel's Principles What is the concept of the likelihood that an event will occur?

24 $100 Answer from Mendel's Principles Probability

25 $200 Question from Mendel's Principles What is the term given to organisms that have two identical alleles for a particular gene?

26 $200 Answer from Mendel's Principles Homozygous

27 $300 Question from Mendel's Principles Tt is an example of what type of gene?

28 $300 Answer from Mendel's Principles Heterozygous

29 $400 Question from Mendel's Principles How did Gregor Mendel contribute to our understanding of inherited traits?

30 $400 Answer from Mendel's Principles The patterns of inheritance he observed form the basis of modern genetics.

31 $500 Question from Mendel's Principles How are Punnett squares used to predict the outcomes of genetic crosses?

32 $500 Answer from Mendel's Principles They are used to show all of the combinations of alleles that might result from a cross and the likelihood that each might occur.

33 $100 Question from Patterns of Inheritance What term is given when one allele is not completely dominant over another?

34 $100 Answer from Patterns of Inheritance Incomplete dominance

35 $200 Question from Patterns of Inheritance In incomplete dominance where does the heterozygous phenotype lie?

36 $200 Answer from Patterns of Inheritance Between the 2 homozygous phenotypes

37 $300 Question from Patterns of Inheritance What term is given to people with the heterozygous form of a gene that produces 2 forms of proteins, with different effects on cholesterol levels?

38 $300 Answer from Patterns of Inheritance Codominance

39 $400 Question from Patterns of Inheritance What is the relationship between the environment and phenotype?

40 $400 Answer from Patterns of Inheritance The environment affects how genes are expressed and therefore influence an organism’s phenotype.

41 $500 Question from Patterns of Inheritance What might be the result of an exceptionally hot spring on wing pigmentation in the western white butterfly?

42 $500 Answer from Patterns of Inheritance The higher temperatures of an unusually hot spring will likely result in lighter wing colors.

43 $100 Question from Independent Assortment What term was given to Mendel’s alleles segregate experiment?

44 $100 Answer from Independent Assortment The Two-Factor Cross

45 $200 Question from Independent Assortment Why is the fruit fly an ideal organism for genetic research?

46 $200 Answer from Independent Assortment They are small, easy to keep in the lab, and produce large numbers of offspring in a short amount of time.

47 $300 Question from Independent Assortment Why didn’t Mendel know, from the results of the first cross, whether two genes segregated independently?

48 $300 Answer from Independent Assortment All the offspring had dominant alleles.

49 $400 Question from Independent Assortment What evidence did Mendel have that alleles segregated independently?

50 $400 Answer from Independent Assortment All combinations of phenotypes were shown as a result.

51 $500 Question from Independent Assortment What does Mendel’s Principles explain?

52 $500 Answer from Independent Assortment They explain that heredity, observed through patterns of inheritance, form the basis of modern genetics.

53 Final Jeopardy What is the difference between the “Law of Dominance” & the “Law of Segregation”?

54 Final Jeopardy Answer The Law of Dominance states that a dominant gene will express itself over a recessive gene and a recessive trait will only be expressed if an individual has two recessive genes. The Law of Segregation states that alleles separate during gamete formation so that each gamete carries only one of the genes.
