- Mutations that affect a single gene
- POINT MUTATION: one nucleotide is substituted for another DNA. May be fixed by DNA Polymerase
- FRAMESHIFT MUTATION: insertion or deletion of a nucleotide in a DNA sequence, SHIFTS the entire sequence
- Affects the entire chromosome (many genes)
- GENE DUPLICATION: caused by exchange of unequal segments during crossing over. One chromosome has 2 copies of some genes and the other has no copies.
- TRANSLOCATION: movement of piece of 1 chromosome to a non-homologous chromosome.
- Chromosome mutations typically have a large effect on an organism
- Point mutatiosn may result in premature STOP codons or amino acids with very different properties from the correct amino acid
- Some mutations have no apparent effect.
- A point mmutation may not change the amino acid coded for.
- Even if a change occurs, it may be in the non-coding region that has no apparent effect.
- Agents that can change DNA.

You need to be efficient. Consider it a test for next week's time efficiency in lab.
We have one or two more labs after this (depending on how the timing works out) with electrophoresis.
Afterwards, there will be a test over all the labs/chapter 9.1 and 9.2. As of right now, this is tentatively for Thursday May 7th, but this could change.
Along with the next test you will be turning in:
- Electrophoresis Lab
- Dye Lab
- DNA Lab
- Study Guides CH. 9.1, 9.2

- Notes on 6.5
- Practice Doing Punnett Squares
- Homework: Read 6.5, 6.6
- Grid system for predicting all possible genotypes resulting from a cross.
Axes: the possible gametesof each parent.
Boxes: show thepossible genotypesof the offspring.
Monohybrid cross: involves one trait.(Mono=one, hybrid=combination)
- Homozygous dominant x Homozygous recessive
Offspring: all heterozygous, all dominant
- Heterozygous x Heterozygous
1 homozygous dominant: 2 heterozygous: 1 homozygous recessive
Phenotypes: 3:1 dominant:recessive
- Heterozygous x Homozygous Recessive:
Genotypes: 1:1, heterozygous : homozygous recessive
Phenotypes: 1:1, dominant : recessive
Dihybrid cross: two traits.
•Mendel’s dihybrid crosses with heterozygous plants yielded a 9:3:3:1 phenotypic ratio.
- Notes on 6.3
- Mendel Activity
- Homework: read 6.3, 6.4 (should be review)
•Law of Segregation
Mendel made three key decisions in his experiments.
1. use of purebred plants
2. control over breeding
3. observation of seven“either-or” traits
Mendel's three conclusions:
-Traits are inherited as discrete units.
Laws of Segregation:
–Organisms inherit two copies of each gene, one from each parent.
–The two copies segregate (separate) during gamete formation.
Online Mendel Activity:
- Go to Classzone.com
- Find your book
- “Animated Biology”
- Unit 3
- Chapter 6: Mendel’s Experiment

Today we took notes on 6.1. A copy of the powerpoint is available in the black binder in the back of the room.
This is a key introduction to chromosomes and MEIOSIS, the production of gametes (as apposed to MITOSIS, the production of gentically identical daughter cells).
Tomorrow we will dive into 6.2, which goes into the nitty gritty details of MEIOSIS. It serves you well to be able to compare and contrast (similarities AND differences) between meiosis and mitosis.
