Mendel's Law of segregation represents the process of __________ = ___________ __________
Cell division that reduces the chromosomes number by half
Cell which contains all chromosomes (2 sets of alleles)
Cell which containts half the chromosomes (1 set of alleles)
Pair of chromosomes with some types of traits (1 comes from each parent)
# of homolous pairs of chromosomes in an organism
Group of 4 sister chromatids (one homologous pair, after replication, before division)
Haploid reproductive cell (sperm or egg)
Diploid body cell; any cell that is not gamete
2 alleles for each trait seperate during (sexual) reproduction
Genes for different traits assort (segregate) independently frome each other
During the Law of __________:
-alleles can be ___________ (always expressed) or ________ (only expressed if no dominant allele present)
-each individual has ___ alleles for each trait
-each parent only passes down __(#)___ allele for each trait to each gamete ( egg or _____)
-therefore each offspring only gets one __(#)____ from each parent
When one haploid gamete combines with another haploid gamete
If, in the beginning of meiosis there are 16 chromosomes in the cell, how many will be in each cell in the end?
How many cells are created in the end of meiosis?
The four cells created at the end of meiosis are called ?
They have _____ sets of chromosomes.
