Heredity! #tackkthursday #throwbackthursday #Heredity
1). The two genotypes from the table are Gg and Gg.
2). The possible outcomes are 75% Green and 25% Yellow.
3). There are 2 homozygus outcomes.
4). There are 2 hetrozygus outcomes.
5.) Offspring that result from sexual reproduction are more likely to have more diverse characteristics because there is more then just one organisms DNA going into it.
Adaptation= Any alteration in the structure or function of an organism or any of its parts that results from natural selection and by which the organism becomes better fitted to survive and multiply in its
Evolution= A theory that the differences between modern plants and animals are because of changes that happened by a natural process over a very long time.
Gene= A hereditary unit consisting of a sequence of DNA that occupies a specific location on a chromosome and is transcribed into an RNA molecule that may function directly or be translated into an amino acid chain. Genes undergo mutation when their DNA sequences change.
Species= A group of closely related organisms that are very similar to each other and are usually capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring.
Sexual Reproduction= Organisms create descendants that have a combination of genetic material contributed by two different gametes, usually from two different organisms. A gamete is a mature reproductive or sex cell. Sexual reproduction results in increasing genetic diversity, since the union of these gametes produces an organism that is not genetically identical to the parent(s).
Asexual Reproduction= A mode of reproduction by which offspring arise from a single organism, and inherit the genes of that parent only; it is reproduction which almost never involves ploidy or reduction. The offspring will be exact genetic copies of the parent.
14.) A way for populations to adapt to changing environments. With more variation, it is more likely that some individuals in a population will possess variations of alleles that are suited for the environment. Those individuals are more likely to survive to produce offspring bearing that allele. The population will continue for more generations because of the success of these individuals.
