Unit 10 Objectives:
“Genetics”
By the end of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Identify the relationships among nucleic acids, genes, and chromosomes.
2. Distinguish among the Principles of: Dominance, Segregation, and Independent
Assortment
3. Distinguish between homozygous and heterozygous genotypes.
4. Understand how genotype controls phenotype.
5. Create a Punnett square to predict genotype and phenotype ratios.
6. Distinguish among and give examples of different types of inheritance; incomplete
dominance, co-dominance, multiple allele, sex-linked.
7. Interpret a pedigree.
8. List and describe various chromosomal abnormalities, their causes and effects.
9. Make connections between genetics and natural selection; gene (allelic)
frequencies and gene pool.
