Biology Lab (Week 3)
For each assignment, you will use the M.U.S.E. link to complete the lab.
In this lab, you will view evidence and analyze results to answer the following questions:
- State which genes are dominant (the gene being expressed over another gene(s)) and which genes are recessive (the gene not being expressed when the dominant gene is present).
- How do you know which gene is dominate and which is recessive?
- Report the ratio most likely to be observed across all traits.
Heredity of a Plant
Using the M.U.S.E. link, review the background information and animation to complete your report. Use the Lab 3 worksheet for assignment instructions and data collection.
Gregor Mendel’s studies laid the foundation for modern genetics. In a series of elegant experiments, Mendel was able to deduce the most fundamental laws of single-gene and multiple-gene inheritance without having the scientific data on chromosomes, their structure, or meiotic segregation. In this lab, you will incorporate these 2 pieces of the puzzle to interpret the experimental results that were obtained by Gregor Mendel in 1865.
This assignment will also be assessed using additional criteria provided here.
