Standard 4.3

Viral replication results in genetic variation, and viral infection can introduce genetic variation into the hosts.

No Current Activities

 


Standard 4.4

In eukaryotes, heritable information is passed to the next generation via processes that include the cell cycle and mitosis or meiosis plus fertilization.

Cell Cycle Regulation POGIL

Can not legally be posted in public webspace.


Standard 4.5

The chromosomal basis of inheritance provides an understanding of the pattern of passage (transmission) of genes from parent to offspring.

Using Genetic Crosses to Analyze A Stickleback Trait

Activity from HHMI Biointeractive.


Standard 4.6

The inheritance pattern of many traits cannot be explained by simple Mendelian genetics.

Mendelian Problem Set 2: Extended

 


Standard 4.7

Biological systems have multiple processes that increase genetic variation.

No Current Activities


Standard 4.8
