BIOLOGY - Coggle Diagram
I will be able to develop and use a model to describe that
sexually reproducing organisms have two of each chromosome in their cell nuclei,
alleles are different forms of a trait
The definition of alleles is one of two or more alternative forms of a gene that arise by mutation and are found at the same place on a chromosome.
and hence two alleles of each gene that can be the same or different from each other, with one randomly being passed onto offspring from each parent
punnett squares model the passing of these traits possibilities
structural changes to genes (mutation) may or may not result in change to proteins.... and ... if there are changes to the protein they may be:
it can make a new gene
it can make something the is disfuncional
It can change the shape
I will be able to communicate that:
Chromosomes contain many distinct genes and that each gene holds the instructions for the production of the specific proteins...
The books in the Encyclopedia are like the chromosomes
The pages of the Encyclopedia are like genes
The genome is like the Encyclopedia it carys everything
The word on the page is like the Base pairs (aka Nucleic Acids)
...... proteins affect the traits of an organism.
