Class # 3
Evolution: change of gene frequency from one population to the other.
- Natural selection is a non-random process; it is the environment that is selecting
for particular traits.
Creationism: evolution is something that doesn’t exist, and all the variation we se
today is a process of God.
-Natural selection: non-random process. This is good for religion is still process that
can be blended with the “God creation”.
-process of genetic change.
-Point mutation: change in one of the bases (ATACGAT = AACGAT) changing the
codon and the protein that the codon is responsible for producing.
-This is a random process that produces new variation.
Hypothetical Mutation: antibiotic Resistance in Bacteria
- Mutation changes phenotype of bacteria, making it more resistance to antibiotics.
Population Genetics- Genetic drift
- It is a random process
-Genetic drift wi
