About This Chapter
Studying for Biology 102 - Summary
If you need to review basic genetics terms and concepts, study these interactive flashcard sets whenever it's convenient. You can use any computer or mobile device to study topics such as model organisms, DNA mutations, evolution and transmission genetics. Some other topics you can expect to study include:
- Comparative genomics
- DNA damage and repair
- Transgenic organisms
- Population genetics
- Mendelian genetics
- Chromosomal and molecular basis of inheritance
How They Work
These genetics flashcards are designed to help you commit important terms and concepts to memory. Keep track of the genetics vocabulary you already know and repeat the flashcards that require extra attention.
- Open a flashcard set for the genetics topic you're studying.
- Identify the word or concept on the flashcard.
- Click the button to flip the card and view the answer.
- Select whether you got it right or missed it to keep track of your progress.
- Click the Next arrow to proceed through the flashcard set.
- Review the cards you missed or shuffle all cards back in and go through them again.
Molecular & Chromosomal Basis of Inheritance Flashcards
Check out this set of flashcards to review the chromosomal and molecular basis of inheritance. You'll find cards that deal with the processes of mitosis, meiosis, and more.
Transmission/Mendelian Genetics Flashcards
This set of flashcards will help you review several concepts of genetics including Mendel's laws and the different types of inheritance. It will also guide you through the basic statistical tests used in genetics.
Population Genetics & Evolution Flashcards
Let's review the genetics of population! Use this set of flashcards to review how genes are transferred among the individuals in a population and how populations evolve.
Model Organisms & Developmental Genetics Flashcards
These flashcards will help you understand the common model organisms used in genetic studies. You will learn the advantages of these organisms and how they have been used to understand the genetic processes behind embryonic development.
DNA Damage, Mutation & Repair Flashcards
Review the various types of mutations and how they affect the DNA strands, as well as DNA replication in this flashcard set. The cards will also cover how mutations can be repaired through different mechanisms.
Human Genetics Flashcards
Check your knowledge of human genetics. These flashcards will help you review human inheritance patterns and pedigrees as well as prenatal and postnatal genetic testing.
Comparative Genomics Flashcards
This set of flashcards will help you study important concepts of comparative genomics. Use these cards to review the behavior and characteristics of different structures and organisms.
DNA Technology & Transgenic Organisms Flashcards
Focus on reviewing information about DNA technology with this set of flashcards. You'll also be able to go over facts about transgenic organisms with these cards.
