Evolution and Genetics
7.L.2.1. Explain why offspring that result from sexual reproduction
(fertilization and meiosis) have greater variation than offspring that
result from asexual reproduction (budding and mitosis).
In some organisms, all the genes come from a single parent.
In organisms that have 2 sexes, typically half of the genes come from each
In sexual reproduction, a single specialized cell from the female merges with a
specialized cell from the male.
Budding is a type of asexual reproduction in which a cell or group of cells pinch
off from the parent to form a new individual.
Mitosis is a type of asexual reproduction when a nucleus undergoes cell division
and 2 identical daughter cells are formed, each containing a complete set of
Meiosis is a type of sexual reproduction. This is a form of cell division that allows
offspring to have the same number of chromosomes as their parents. This
produces gametes containing half the number of chromosomes as a parent’s cell.
Fertilization is a type of sexual reproduction where there is fusion of male sperm
and female egg.
Genetics explains why you have inherited certain traits from your parents.
If meiosis is understood, then it is seen how these traits are passed from parent
to offspring.
A gene is a segment of DNA that controls the protein production and the cell
Chromosomes are cell structures that carry the genetic material that is copied
and passed from generation to generation of cells.
People have noticed for thousands of years that family resemblances were
inherited from generation to generation.
A dominant trait is an observable trait of an organism that masks the recessive
form of the trait if it is present.
A recessive trait of an organism can be masked by the dominant trait.
2 organisms can look alike but have different underlying gene combinations.
The way an organism looks and behaves is the phenotype.
The gene combination an organism contains is known as the genotype. This
includes recessive alleles that may be masked by dominant alleles.
New varieties of cultivated plants and animals have resulted from selective
breeding for particular traits.
Cultivated plants and animals have been changed somewhat to promote survival
in different conditions due to intentional human intervention.
Agriculture, forestry, and horticulture use these cultivated species.
7.L.2.2. Infer patterns of heredity using information from Punnett Squares and
Pedigree Analysis.
A pedigree is a diagram of family relationships that uses symbols to represent
people and lines to represent genetic relationships. These diagrams make it
easier to visualize relationships within families.
Pedigrees are often used to determine the mode of inheritance (dominant,
recessive) of genetic diseases.
A Punnett square is a chart wherein all possible gene combinations are shown in
a cross of parents. Punnett squares are best introduced using the physical traits
of plants.
In using Punnett squares, one can easily predict genotype and phenotype of
7.L.2.3 Explain the impact of the environment and lifestyle choices on biological
inheritance (to include common genetic diseases) and survival.
Individual organisms with traits conducive to the environment’s stressors are
more likely than others to survive and have offspring.
Changes in environmental conditions can affect the survival of an individual
organism and/or the entire species.
Analysis of the patterns of genetic traits enhances the understanding of genetic
and allows for predictions to be made by studying pedigrees.
Some traits are inherited and others result from interactions with the
environment, life style choices, and environmental influences.
Human characteristics that are learned may or may not be passed on to future
Some animal species are limited to repertoire of genetically determined behavior;
others have more complex brains and can learn and modify a wide variety of
All behaviors is affected by both inheritance and experience.
The length and quality of human life are influenced by many factors: including
sanitation, diet, medical care, sex, genes, environmental conditions, and personal
health behaviors.
Faulty genes can cause body parts or systems to work poorly.
Some genetic diseases appear only when an individual has inherited a certain
faulty gene from both parents.
