Week 15: Meiosis and Heredity
Mrs. Partin's Biology Class
Important Dates for the Week
This week, we will be exploring the process where gamete cells for sexual reproduction are formed, how DNA from two parents are passed on to offspring, and how that DNA is expressed as heritable traits. We will also be diving into the inheritance patterns of those traits--are they linked to autosomal choromosomes or our sex chromosomes? We will learn about some disorders that may occur in that inheritance as well. Finally, we will be learning to identify patterns in family history by use of pedigrees!
If you find yourself stumped along the way and needing extra help, please set an appointment for tutoring with me!
