Complete Name: Unit 4 Student Name: Beard, Matthew ********************************************************************************************************** 1. Describe Mendel's P, F1, and F2 generations in his experiments with pea plants. Student Answer: Mendel was a pioneer botanist, and some of his earlier works involved the study of the seed shape and traits. One of the first (Peter Daempfle, 2001) seed plants that Mendel dealt with was pea plants that he first noticed were always round or wrinkled, and they never portrayed any other trait other than that. He took the initiative to experiment with them, and the first experiment involved color where he crosses pollinated the purple with the white flowered parent plants. The results…show more content…
UTTCTTT c. AAAAAA d. CCCCC Student Answer: . ATTGCCb. UTTCTTTc. AAAAAAd. CCCCC We can use the following analogy to (Peter Daempfle, 2001) translate the DNA to mRNA. We can also use this analogy to determine from the mentioned sequences which is not a correct translation of the mRNA.DNA matches with mRNA in:A matches with UT matches with AG matches with CC matches with G The odd one out from the sequence is clearly (b) that is UTTCTTT this is because the code T is from a DNA sequence rather than from a mRNA sequence.Peter Daempfle (2001). `Essential Biology An applied approach` Kendall hunt publishing Company Correct Answer: n/a ********************************************************************************************************** 9.

To understand (Peter Daempfle, 2001) the consequences of loss of tRNA we have to understand their function. The first is that the tRNA is responsible for the translation of nucleic acids and nucleotides into proteins or amino acids. Hence the lack of tRNA would be costly as the translation would not occur. The tRNA is responsible for bringing the amino acids to the ribosomes. Due to the lack of tRNA, the step would not be possible, and as a consequence, a cell will not be able to divide.Peter Daempfle (2001). `Essential Biology An applied approach` Kendall hunt publishing
