Genetics: BIOL 3011

Topic for Unit 2: Mendelian Heredity

Lecture 3: DNA Variability: Independent Assortment, Crossing over, Mutations, Mendel’s Work, Punnett Square, dihybrid crosses

Lecture 4: Review of dihybrid cross, trihybrid cross (branched method – videos), Chi-square

At the end of this unit you should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate understanding of basic Mendelian principles.
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of definitions of commonly used genetic terms.
  3. Demonstrate understand and use of the basic principles of probability.
  4. Demonstrate knowledge of the use of probability in genetic analysis and the use of probability to compute genetic ratios.
  5. Demonstrate ability to use the Punnett square and the branching methods of computing
  6. Genotypic and phenotypic ratios.
  7. Know the principle of the Chi square test and be able to use it to test data.
