Variation
Variation- variation among individuals in a population
Heredity- progeny resemble their parents more than unrelated individuals
Selection- some forms better at surviving and breeding in a given environment
Terms:
Genotype- genetic constitution of an organism. Aa Bb
Phenotype- the organism as observed. Used when discussing a train. Product of
interaction between genes and environment.
Genome- the entire organisms DNA including both genes and non-coding
regions.
What is a gene:
Functional unit of inheritance
Contains info located on chromosomes consisting of DNA
Dna sequence composed of codons.
Where does genetic variation come from?:
1. mutation- ultimate source of genetic variation
2. recombination
3. gene flow
4. hybridization
Recombination:
Through independent assortment at meiosis we get enormous genetic diversity.
This diversity if manifest when individuals mate and produce offspring.
It is the most important source of variability as we more from one generation to
the next.
Amount of variation you get from independent assortment is enormous relative to
mutation.
Mutation:
A stable change in DNA sequence resulting in a change of genotype
Occurs at very low but variable rate in all organisms
Effects: neutral, deleterious, lethal, beneficial, in manu cases their fitness effects
depend on environment
Ultimate source of variation.
All diversity on earth is connected through mutation over long periods.
Characteristics of Mutation:
Mutation rates can vary

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
