Gregor Mendel and his garden peas opened up so much understanding for the passing of traits from parent to offspring. These principles of heredity are the topic of study this week. Make sure to finish your notes from Section 1 (p. 76-81) tonight. We will move on tomorrow to understanding probability and predicting offspring from genetic crosses.
Be sure to have all past work done and turned in so you can move beyond the basics and explore more on Thursday with iPads...
Need more help in understanding all this genetics stuff? Khan Academy has some good links. So does University of Utah Learn.Genetics. Explore around so you feel more comfortable in your genes (lol).
Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... sorry for the poor citation example I am setting...
