Goodbye Chapter 14


Tomorrow, we will be wrapping-up chapter 14. I will focus on reading pedigrees and you should read pages 252-258. Pay particular attention to learning the particular examples of human genetic disorders, fetal testing, and neo-natal testing. I will not discuss these directly and will rely on you to ask questions.

Later this week we will dive into chapter 15 and begin to understand the relationship between chromosomes and genes and how the chromosome theory of inheritance was first formed. To supplement this learning we will begin the Drosophila genetics lab. It is great fun seeing Mendel's ratios in action!

Be sure to ask the blog co-authors questions when they submit a post. They are an excellent information resource.

Mr. Baker
