Biology students can use these science flash cards to study hereditary traits
There are 12 flash cards in this set (2 pages to print.)
1. Print out the cards.
2. Cut along the dashed lines.
3. Fold along the solid lines.
Sample flash cards in this set:
|Genotype||An organism's genetic makeup, or allele combination's.|
|Phenotype||An organism's physical appearance, or visible traits.|
|Homozygous||Having two identical alleles for a trait.|
|Heterozygous||Having two diffrent alleles for a trait.|
|Gregor Mendel||Experimented with thousands of pea plants to understand the process of heredity.|
|Meiosis||The process by which that occurs in the formation of sex cells(sperm and egg)by which the number of chromosomes is reduced by half.|
|Dominant Allele||An allele whose trait always shows up in the organism when the allele is present.|
|Recessive Allele||An allele that is masked when a dominant allele is present.|
|Messenger RNA||RNA that copies the coded message from DNA in the nucleus and carries the message into the cytoplasm.|
|Transfer RNA||RNA in the cytoplasm that carries an aminco acid to the ribosome and adds it to the growing protein chain.|
|Punnet Square||A chart that shows all the possible combinations of alleles that can result from a genetic cross.|
|Probability||A number that describes how likely it is that an event will occur.|
