The process that produces an alteration in DNA or chromosome’s structure or number is known as mutation. The term ‘mutation’ was coined by Hugo Marie de Vries in 1901. Any agent that cause mutation or increase the rate of mutation is known as mutagen. Chromosomal Mutation Chromosomal mutation is a missing, extra, or irregular portion of … Continue reading Chromosomal Mutations

Chromosome Abnormality: Down Syndrome

A chromosome abnormality or a chromosomal disorder is a missing or irregular or extra portion of chromosomal DNA. usually occur when there is an error in cell division following meiosis or mitosis. are generally not inherited but occur as random events during the formation of reproductive cell. an error in cell division called non-disjunction results … Continue reading Chromosome Abnormality: Down Syndrome

Principles of One-Gene Inheritance

The study and analysis of inheritance as a result of monohybrid crosses is called one-gene inheritance. The cross between true-breeding pea plants with tall stems and dwarf stems is represent Mendel’s monohybrid crosses. When Mendel crossed true breeding tall plants with dwarf plants, the resulting F1 generation consisted of only tall plants. When members of … Continue reading Principles of One-Gene Inheritance
