Describe a model species and why Is It useful to study genes Define bioinformatics and explain Its role In the future of genomics Dullness’s between bioinformatics and proteomics List two types of medical products that can be produced using DNA technology In what way might employers discriminate against a person if his or her genome were known to them?
Unit Six – Genetics Text Chapter 9: Fundamentals of Genetics – Madeline (All) Distinguish between dominant and recessive traits Design an Illustration showing the difference between an allele and a gene Describe owe probably Is used to predict the results of genetic crosses Show how a Pungent Square can be used to predict results of onboard/dullard cross Text Chapter 12: Inheritance patterns and Human Genetics – Non-Madeline (All) Explain the role of Summarize the procedure involved in constructing a chromosomal map Define and give examples of chromosome mutations and gene mutations Show how a pedigree can be used to illustrate the inheritance of traits Explain the inheritance of ABA blood groups Explain the cause of some human genetic disorders MIDTERM Unit Three – Evolution
Text Chapter 14 (14-3): First Life Forms Explain the theory of endometriosis Text Chapter 15 (all): Evolution: Evidence and Theory Explain the law of superposition and its significance to evolutionary theory Distinguish between microinstruction, miscalculation and evolution Compare theories of Lamarckian and Darwin Describe genotypes (alleles/genes) and phenotypes (physical traits) evidence of evolution Text Chapter 16 (all): The Evolution of Populations and Speciation Explain the importance of the bell curve to population genetics For most traits, the middle or average version of it is the most common. We can graph the frequency off trait for a particular species and when we connect the points we should end up with a curve that looks like an upside down bell. We then can see where individual organisms fall on that line. Describe the causes of genotypes variations in a population An accidental mutation can sweep through the entire population. Recombination- during meiosis, the chromosomes a split randomly, so half of the chromosomes are actually used. Explain how to compute allele frequency and phenotypes frequency List five conditions that can cause evolution to take place
Migration Mutation Assertive mating Genetic drift Natural selection Define geographic/reproductive isolation and explain how each can lead to speciation Unit Six – Microbiology Text Chapter 23 (all): Bacteria Distinguish Gram-positive from Gram-negative bacteria Describe the structure to the bacterial cell Discuss the various types of environments that bacterial occupy List types of genetic recombination used by bacteria Describe how antibiotic resistance developed Describe three ways that bacteria can cause disease in humans List three ways that cetera are helpful to humans Text Chapter 24 (all): Viruses Describe the structure and classification of viruses Compare and contrast forbids and prison with viruses Summarize the lit and lessoning cycles of viral replication Compare the types of viral vaccines and other forms of viral disease prevention Text Chapter 47 (all): Infectious Diseases and the Immune System Summarize nonspecific defenses of the human body Identify/describe the function of the white blood cells involved in nonspecific response Diagram the components and interactions of specific defense mechanism
Describe the functions of the three kinds of T cells Describe the actions of B cells in and immune response Explain how a vaccine works Describe the course of HIVE infection Unit Seven – Human Systems I Text Chapter 46 (all): Circulatory and Respiratory Systems Describe the structure and function of the human heart Trace the flow of blood through the heart and body Distinguish between arteries, veins and capillaries Describe the function of the lymphatic system List the components of blood, their structures and their function Trace the passage of IR from the environment to the bloodstream.
