Applied Genetics of Humans, Animals, Plants and Fungi (2nd by Bernard C. Lamb

By Bernard C. Lamb

A concise, transparent writing type and an in depth and wealthy assurance of issues are the explanations that scholars came upon the 1st variation of the e-book so enticing and beneficial. using in this wave, all chapters in the moment variation of this well known booklet were completely up to date and improved, specially the human and animal fabrics. a much broader diversity of animals is roofed, together with canines and cats in addition to cattle. using twine blood for treatment, pre-implantation genetic analysis and animal cloning also are explored and handled.

Example text

1. 1. Qualitative characters Qualitative characters have contrasting phenotypes with a qualitative difference between them. Thus, two or more alleles at a locus give discontinuous variation such as white versus green plants in maize, red versus black fur in foxes, the A, B and O blood groups in man, and adenine-requiring or adenine-non-requiring yeast. The term also applies to measurable characters if there are discontinuous differences, such as between tall and short pea plants. They are usually controlled by two or more alleles at loci of major effect and show typical Mendelian inheritance in diploid Eukaryotes.

The terms are not applicable in haploids, where there is only one allele for each locus, a condition termed hemizygous in a hemizygote, which also applies in diploids in X Y individuals to those genes on the X sex chromosome which have no counterpart on the Y. Some genes are actually repeated many times in one set of chromosomes, or even in one chromosome, such as some genes specifying transfer or ribosomal RNAs, but for simplicity, most genetic definitions relate to single-copy genes. The Alu sequence in man occurs more than 500,000 times per genome, involving all chromosomes.
