The Molecular & Chromosomal Inheritance Flashcards
These flashcards will help you review the molecular basis of inheritance, focusing on how transcription and translation turns your DNA blueprint into your traits.
Chromosomes & Genetic Structures Flashcards
These flashcards will help you review vocabulary and concepts related to the study of comparative genomics, including its relationship to structural homology and how and where genes are stored in different types of cells.
Meiosis & Mitosis Flashcards
This flashcard set will help you review the main steps found in the processes of mitosis and meiosis. Use them to study the details of each step, the important cell structures that aid in each process, and the end goals.
Mendelian Genetics & Gene Transmission Flashcards
Use these flashcards to review the fundamentals of genetics. This includes important terminology and concepts related to genes, how traits are inherited, and the relationship between heritability and gene expression.
Genetic Evolution & Adaptation Flashcards
This set of flashcards will help you review the theory and process of evolution, the factors that affect populations over time, and how mathematical models can be used to describe genetic change and diversity in a population.
Drosophila & Model Organisms Flashcards
Use these flashcards to help you review the main types and uses of model organisms in biology and how they have been used to study embryonic development.
DNA Mutations & Repairs Flashcards
These flashcards will help you review the different types of DNA mutations as well as how they are caused, their consequences, and how they are repaired.
Human Genetics & Diseases Flashcards
This flashcard set will define genetic disorders, investigate their inheritance patterns and how they can be followed within a family and population, and illustrate some common genetic diseases.
DNA Technology & Genetic Engineering Flashcards
This set of flashcards will introduce you to the techniques used in the process of genetic engineering and how they have affected the fields of molecular biology, medicine, and agriculture.
