BIOL 3011: Genetics (Gotesman): Unit 5: Chromosome Mapping

Genetics: BIOL 3011

Topics for Unit 5: Chromosome Mapping

Lecture 10: Gene Linkage and Recombination for chromosome mapping

Lecture 11: Tetrad Analysis, Mitotic Recombination and Genetic Mosaics

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

  1. Understand the difference in inheritance patterns between independently assorting genes and linked genes
  2. Understand the assumptions that are used to develop mapping functions
  3. Understand there is a relationship between genetic distance between genes and physical distance
  4. Understand the assumptions used in the analysis of three-gene test crosses and compute the outcomes of three-point test crosses by solving word problems
  5. Understand that the biology of an organism must be understood in order to map genes on achromosome
