Project #37843 - Family tree & questions

Please read both parts carefully and answer all questions. No Plagiarism, my school sends all work through plagiarism checker. Part 1 and 2 needs to be completed.

Part 1 

Produce a family tree for at least three generations of your family, a friend's family, or a famous family such as the Bushes, Clintons, or Barrymores, following these genetic traits:

  • Eye color
  • Hair color
  • Dominant hand
  • Height
  • Widow's peak
  • Hitchhiker's thumb
  • A family genetic disorder (this is not required and should only be provided at one's discretion)

Summarize the inheritance of sex-linked traits through meiosis and how it relates to genetics.

Create a 5- to 6-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation illustrating your findings and summarizing the inheritance of sex-linked traits.

 

Part 2

Answer each question with 60 words or more

1. Explain the importance of DNA.  What does it code for?  What does epigenetics mean?  How does it affect our gene expression?

2.  Gregor Mendel never saw a gene, yet he concluded that "heritable factors" were responsible for the patterns of inheritance he observed in peas. Similarly, maps ofDrosophila chromosomes (and the very idea that genes are carried on chromosomes)were conceived by observing the patterns of inheritance of linked genes, not by observing the genes directly. Is it legitimate for biologists to claim the existence of objects and processes they cannot actually see? How do scientists know whether an explanation is correct?
