Mendel: Extra Biology Credit

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Dear Dad, I've been in the Monastary discoving the basic of genetics. I've been experimenting with my garden peas for the past couple of years. The organisms that are used as the original mating in an experiment (tall and short plant) are called the parental generation in abbreviation is the P generation which stands for parent. When I mated the two offsprings in the p generation, the offsprings are in the F1 generation. When I breed the F1 generation I ended up with the F2 generation. ...read more.

Middle

I also noticed that 1/4 of the offspring were as short as the short plants in the P generation. I noticed that one trait kept disappearing in the F1 generation. I gave a capital letter to the trait which showed up in the first generation and the small letter to the trait which was hidden in the F1 generation. The trait that appeared in the F1 generation I called dominant and the traits that were hidden I called recessive. I observed that some tall plants crossed with each other showed both and tall and short offspring. ...read more.

Conclusion

An organism is homozygous for a trait if its two alleles for a trait are the same (TT). An organism is hetozygous for a trait it its two alleles for the trait are different (Tt). Dad are you with me? I think I broke the code of Genetics which is the study of heredity. Aren't you very proud of my accomplishment, I think that my discovery will make a big impact in the years to come. Well got to go ,just wanted to let you know what I have been up to and let you know about my research. Well take care Lots of love Gregory Mendel ...read more.

  1. Gregor Mendel

    This theory accounted for the fact that offspring tended to resemble both parents, but failed to show how diversity could be maintained over many generations without all members of a population eventually averaging themselves out. Mendel proposed instead a theory of particulate inheritance, in which characteristics were determined by discrete
