Now, if we shift from the idea that any trait is inherited by a species in a family lineage, AKA Mendel’s first law, the principle law of segregation, we can begin to see some of the other complexity in the basic inheritance model.

In this section we will review the idea of genes as opposed to taits. Think of traits as the whole cake and the genes as the precise instructions for how to use, make, and acquire the ingredients for the cake. The cake has traits for certain; the frosting, the decorations, the filling, the bread or cake layers, and the decorations. However, how to get what is needed and how to use it are not easily observed as are the traits.

The key concept we are using here is Mendel’s second law of independent assortment. Meaning, we are making the assumption based on previous work that traits are inherited from the parents. Next, we are trying to show how the instructions for a trait exist in independent packs.

The independent gene usually works in combination with other genes. To add to complexity genes can be expressed or not. Meaning , a gene may be present but not show, this is referred to as dominance and recessive.

As we have learned that cells contain DNA which activates things by using RNA, both are ractive and function to produce and build proteins which do things. The details for production are in the genes. How the genes show are the traits.

Simply stated cells contain DNA which uses RNA to build proteins and the information on how to do that are stored in genes as segments of the DNA. The things built are known as traits.

Gametes

Now, as we continue the exploration of inheritance we have established that cells are micro-machines which store all the things needed for production and function. In this lesson we are demonstrating Mendel’s second law of independent assortment. Hence, we use the cell. There is a special kind of cell, a sex cell, referred to as a gamete, which is either a sperm or an ovum.

A sex cell gets one of the of alleles from each parent. An allele is a gene for something but is a variant form. For example, is a gene for sex type is variant because it has a combination of X for male and Y for female. The offspring inherit the genes either xxs and or y from the parents. Consequently the genetic structure for offspring can vary. The X and Y are alleles.

It is at times complex to understand genetics but for this course we will explore a few of the ideas. For example, an allele can be viewed with the ABo blood groups. That is, for humans we have three basic and understated alleles for blood; A , B, and o.

We have genetic types for blood which are similar but… what is not similar is the specific cell type. They are similar for blood, but not because of what type. They are similar because of the function but not type. Those parts of the gene which code for the type are alleles. There is an added complexity sometimes and rarely, one allele is truly dominant over another. In the expression of genes for humans in the ABo blood groups A and B are codominant. Meaning they coexist on more or less equal standing.

However, o type is not dominant and is referred to as recessive. That is, type o is passive to A or B and will not change the blood to type o. This is not too complex so far. However, the truth be told it is far more complex such as when considering the ideas of Rh factors, what parts of a cell or gene are dominant and which are recessive become a more complex puzzle to build.

That is, basic Mendelian models for inheritance may not be adequate for resolving more complex issues but it is a start. There are reasons that more complex models need to be considered two are pleiotropy and polygenetics. Meaning that with pleiotropy, one gene can be used as a tool for many effects. Another iswith, polygenetics which uses more than one gene or for any one of many effects. It is not simple to start at the more complex and more accurate models.Therefore, it is useful to start with a two part model (refer to img.Gamete Selection 1 and 2) then to move onto more complex ones (refer to img.Gamete Selection 3) for example a much more complex 3 sets in two part model (refer to img.Gamete Selection 4). However, it is important to note the simple steps are not able to present the complexity of the human genome.

Starting with some simple ideas, the genotypes for blood are different from the blood groups. For humans simply and usually blood groups are referred to as A, B, and o. However, the groups are actually made of two alleles for the blood cell. The alleles for A, B, or o types can combine in a two part system. A mother or a father must have at least two alleles but may have the alleles in combination. For example in an ABo blood group, a parent with type A has either genotype from below as a genotype. Both are simply named type A blood group.

1.AA (homozygous dominant) same

2.Ao (heterozygous) different

3.AB (codominant) both show

Blood also has other genotypes for example; if one parent has genotype AA blood and the other parent has genotype BB blood then the offspring will get one A from parent one and one B from parent two resulting in type AB blood (codominant) (refer to table1). This shows Mendel’s first law, the principle law of segregation.

However, a parent could be A for the blood group but their genotype could be Ao. This complicates the issue because now there are two sex cell options for blood grenotypes from that parent who has Ao alleles for A blood group, not just A but also an allelle for o.

Consequently, when we combine parent one with Ao with parent two BB the outcome is less clear because each parent passes on half of their genotype. In the case of parent two it is simply a B because there are no other choices. However, for parent one it is either A or o. Therefore the offspring of the two parents could inherit A, B or o because they are options. Meaning the offspring could be AB (codominant) or Bo (heterozygous). This shows Mendel’s second law of independent assortment that the traits exist in packets which can be transferred to offspring independently.

This can be shown in a handy tool known as a Punnett Square (refer to table 1 and table 2). It is used by placing one of the parent’s(p1)genotype in the first column and other parent’s (p2) on the top row. Then using the intersections to predict the genotypic outcome of the offspring.

Table 1: Mendel’s principle law of segregation

The only outcome is AB which came from the parents

Table 2: Mendel’s law of independent assortment

Because the alleles for blood A and o are unique, they can be inherited independently. This is true of all alleles.

We know that trait alleles have at least two parts for simplified Mendalian genetics. That allows some easy applications. We do not have to use A, B, or o to represent any trait. We can use Aa, Bb, Cc, etc. because uppercase represents dominant and lower case represents recessive. Some prefer to use a letter as an allele which represents the idea for example, T for tall, t for small, etc…

All these ideas form together to show the principle law of segregation from Gregor Mendel, that all traits an offspring has comes directly from their parents. Also we show the principle law of independence that; traits can exist as separate from other traits and be passed down to offspring.

That being said, offspring get the genetic information from their parents and the parents pass part of the DNA to offspring separate from the whole DNA. A parent passed on part of the DNA through creating sex cells which have half the DNA required for a life. The sex cell is a gamete and comes as either a sperm or an ovum. The process of creating a sex cell is meiosis.

When a sex cell is created in meiosis, the parent’s whole cell more or less divides in two cleaving a sex cell with half of the alleles from the parent. Therefore, if only one trait were to be examined (img.Gamete Selection 1) the result in the haploid daughter cells, would be in each of the two sex cells there would be half of the parent DNA; in this case review a parent with Aa (heterozygous) in img.Gamete Selection 1.

The parent has a two part sequence which codes for a trait. The trait will express according to the patterns and to the effectiveness of the gene to express itself over others and the frequency with which that gene is expressed and the relationship of the affect and ecology of the individual. A trait does not simply show up, usually. There are many things which contribute to the expression.

A person is put together, genetically like a complex machine. In this example we see nuts and bolts which need both parts to be useful (img.Gamete Selection 1). That is, a parent has two parts in connection that are useful but they can only pass one to the offspring meaning half. The other half will come from the other parent.

When a sex cell is made there are many complex steps which have been covered already in Cells and DNA section you may also recall the added complexity of crossing-over and mixing of the DNA resulting in many unique sex cells from a single person. Therefore, there are many possibilities for the offspring from a parent because the system assures diversity.

In the following drawings the process and result is simplified, in order to be direct and correct about the process of half the genes, passed onto offspring, by way of meiosis, and intercourse. The outcome is potentially limitless and diversity is assured by the process of life and procreation.

img.Gamete Selection 1

Given:
The parent cell has two parts.

One is an A representing a dominant trait. There other is “a” which is a recessive one.

The parent cell Aa is (heterozygous) meaning different.

img.Gamete Selection 2

Given:
The parent cell has two parts.

One is a B representing a dominant trait. There other is “b” which is a recessive one.

The parent cell Bb is (heterozygous) meaning different.

img.Gamete Selection 3

Given:
Parent 1starts with a cell which has two more parts. The cell from p1 parent cell Aa is (heterozygous) meaning different.

P1(parent 1) has an A representing a dominant trait. There other is “a” which is a recessive one.

P1 starts with a cell which has two more parts. The cell from p2 parent cell Bb is (heterozygous) meaning different.The parent cell Bb is (heterozygous) meaning different.

P1 has a B representing a dominant trait. There other is “b” which is a recessive one.

One is a B representing a dominant trait. There other is “b” which is a recessive one.

Noted in the below gamete P1 is far more complex than for 1 trait.

Gamete selection is from one parent. In that, a parent only has the One set of DNA. That DNA is divided into two parts or chromatids. Each chromatid has information but can carry different codes for the same thing such as for blood, or height etc. However, traits are simply controlled by one genetic pairing and there are many more genes. The information for genes is coded in 20,000-25,000 genes which work with others genes creating nearly limitless possibilities. Tracking these traits is complex See below if we change from 2 sets of two part traits (refer to img.Gamete Selection 3) to 3 sets of two part traits (refer to img.Gamete Selection 4). Then imagine what 25,000 genes may look like.

img.Gamete Selection 4

Write a 750-1000 word analysis of “Case Study: Fetal Abnormality.” Be sure to address the following questions: Which theory or theories are being used by Jessica, Marco, Maria, and Dr. Wilson to determine the moral status of the fetus? Explain. How does the theory determine or influence each of their recommendation for action? What theory do you agree with? How would that theory determine or influence the recommendation for action? Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required. Case Study: Fetal Abnormality Jessica is a 30-year-old immigrant from Mexico City. She and her husband Marco have been in the U.S. for the last three years and have finally earned enough money to move out of their Aunt Maria’s home and into an apartment of their own. They are both hard workers. Jessica works 50 hours a week at a local restaurant and Marco has been contracting side jobs in construction. Six months before their move to an apartment, Jessica finds out she is pregnant. Four months later, Jessica and Marco arrive at the county hospital, a large, public, nonteaching hospital. A preliminary ultrasound indicates a possible abnormality with the fetus. Further scans are conducted and it is determined that the fetus has a rare condition in which it has not developed any arms, and will not likely develop them. There is also a 25% chance that the fetus may have Down syndrome. Dr. Wilson, the primary attending physician, is seeing Jessica for the first time, since she and Marco did not receive earlier prenatal care over concerns about finances. Marco insists that Dr. Wilson refrain from telling Jessica the scan results, assuring him that he will tell his wife himself when she is emotionally ready for the news. While Marco and Dr. Wilson are talking in another room, Aunt Maria walks into the room with a distressed look on her face. She can tell that something is wrong and inquires of Dr. Wilson. After hearing of the diagnosis, she walks out of the room wailing loudly and praying aloud. Marco and Dr. Wilson continue their discussion, and Dr. Wilson insists that he has an obligation to Jessica as his patient and that she has a right to know the diagnosis of the fetus. He furthermore is intent on discussing all relevant factors and options regarding the next step, including abortion. Marco insists on taking some time to think of how to break the news to Jessica, but Dr. Wilson, frustrated with the direction of the conversation, informs the husband that such a choice is not his to make. Dr. Wilson proceeds back across the hall, where he walks in on Aunt Maria awkwardly praying with Jessica and phoning the priest. At that point, Dr. Wilson gently but briefly informs Jessica of the diagnosis, and lays out the option for abortion as a responsible medical alternative, given the quality of life such a child would have. Jessica looks at him and struggles to hold back her tears. Jessica is torn between her hopes of a better socioeconomic position and increased independence, along with her conviction that all life is sacred. Marco will support Jessica in whatever decision she makes, but is finding it difficult not to view the pregnancy and the prospects of a disabled child as a burden and a barrier to their economic security and plans. Dr. Wilson lays out all of the options but clearly makes his view known that abortion is “scientifically” and medically a wise choice in this situation. Aunt Maria pleads with Jessica to follow through with the pregnancy and allow what “God intends” to take place, and urges Jessica to think of her responsibility as a mother. 70.0 %Content 25.0 %Determination of Moral Status Theory/Theories that determine the moral status of the fetus are incorrectly identified.

Assignment 1: The Annotated Bibliography – Due Week 3 Project Overview: For this project, you’ll choose a food or drink item, a cuisine, an invention, or an idea, and then research how four geographic concepts are related to and affect your topic. Instead of presenting your research as a traditional paper, you’ll use PowerPoint to create a narrated presentation. Your presentation will be structured like a paper, including a title, introduction to the topic, main body, summary and conclusions, and references. Creative use of properly cited graphics and photos from the Internet relevant to your topic is required. First, choose a food item, cuisine, invention, or idea that interests you. Some will have more information available about them than others, so it’s worth doing some investigation before you settle on one. If you’re not sure if your desired topic is appropriate, please feel free to ask! Once you have selected your topic, you will then do research to see how each of the following geographic concepts affects or is related to your topic:1. Regions 2. Cultural Landscape 3. Diffusion 4. Distance decay. The first two concepts are covered in the first chapter of your textbook. Diffusion is covered in Chapter 8, Section 2 (page 484). Distance decay refers to the fact that influence and interaction between locations decreases as the distance between them increases. As such, it has a significant influence on how things change as they diffuse away from their point of origin. Be sure to address these specific geographic terms and concepts in your work. You don’t need to address them in this order, but you do need to address all of them. You may use “subsets” of these definitions (e.g. contagious diffusion) if such subsets exist. Be sure to refer to your text and other reliable resources to ensure you completely understand these concepts. You should be detailed in your treatment of these concepts – for instance, you should explain both how and why your choice varies by region, and how and why it has been affected by distance decay. Remember that geography, as an academic discipline, seeks to explain why things vary from place to place, not just describe how they do. You will complete this project in 3 separate assignments: an annotated bibliography, an outline, and your final presentation. In this assignment, you will complete your annotated bibliography. Completing the project in separate assignments allows you to work your way up to the final presentation, and provides opportunity for feedback along the way. Assignment Objective: Assess sources for your research for your final presentation (for credibility, reliability, and relevance) and list references in proper APA format through the creation of an annotated bibliography. Assignment Instructions: An annotation is a summary and evaluation, and your annotated bibliography will include a summary and evaluation of some of the sources (or references) you will use for your presentation. To prepare for this assignment, I recommend that you do the following: Read these directions carefully. Review the sample annotated bibliography provided to you below. Read the grading criteria below.The grading criteria is a detailed evaluation that I will use to assess your performance. It also will help you understand what is expected you as you prepare your assignment. Message me with any questions! The reason the annotated bibliography is included as part of the research project is that writing an annotated bibliography provides excellent preparation for the final presentation. One of the issues regarding any type of research is the credibility of the sources used, particularly those obtained from various websites. By forcing you to evaluate your potential sources carefully, the annotated bibliography helps you determine if the sources you chose are credible and relevant to your topic. It will also help you understand the topic better, which will help you develop your presentation. For this project, you will assess three sources to include: 1) a complete citation for each source, 2) a summary of each source, and 3) an evaluation of each source. Three sources are required for this assignment (i.e., you are to write an annotation for each source). However, you must use five or more sources in your final presentation. Use the TEMPLATE below to summarize and evaluate each of your three sources. Citation: Written in APA reference list format. For more help with formatting, see APA handout Summary: What is the purpose of the source, review article, original research? What topics are covered? This section is generally 3-5 sentences that summarize the author’s main point. For more help, see this link on paraphrasing sources. Evaluation: After summarizing the article (or research paper or book), it is necessary to evaluate it and state where you found it – its source (e.g.,journal, website, etc.). Briefly answer the following questions in 3-5 sentences: What is the format or type of source (e.g., peer-reviewed journal paper, website, book)? How reliable is the information in the article, and how credible is the source (e.g., website’s sponsoring organization, journal or book publisher) and the author(s)? For more help, see this handout on evaluating resources.

Select one of the following options to submit for the Life Skills & Content Integration Plan. Label the assignment with the title of the option you selected. Option 1: Mathematics-Oriented Career Education Planning Chart Complete the Mathematics-Oriented Career Education Planning Chart on page 358 of Math Instruction for Students with Learning Problems for your case study student. Even if your student is in elementary school, this chart is still applicable. As a teacher, you may decide some of the categories under the subdomain column, but some might be guided by the student’s interests. Use the Mathematics Content Codes on page 230 of Math Instruction for Students with Learning Problems. Note. You may reformat the chart to fit your needs as long as it is clear, organized, and contains the same headings. Option 2: Content Integration Planning Chart Create a chart similar to Figure 7.3 on page 214 of Math Instruction for Students with Learning Problems for your case study student. Decide which subject you want to integrate with mathematics to design a unit. The Unit Problem must be like the example: a question that is open ended, requiring investigation, without a set answer. This does not have to be connected to the unit plan or previous lesson ideas for your case study student. Keep in mind the difference between a concept and a skill. Note. You may reformat the chart to fit your needs as long as it is clear, organized, and contains: A Unit Problem and three questions with corresponding concepts from both mathematics and another subject. (SEE ATTACHMENT FILES) Submit a compilation of the Student Profile, Assessment Analysis, Assignment Revision and Life Skills or Content Integration Plan as a Word document by Sunday. Consider making revisions from instructor feedback of your Student Profile, Assessment Analysis, and Assignment Revision before submitting the assignment.

Instructions: This assignment should be done after studying Units 12 and 13 and completing the quizzes for these units. Complete both case studies. Case Study A (50%): Marlie carries on a business of selling new and used lamps. In 2009, she obtained an operating line of credit from the Bank of Nova Scotia. Marlie gave the bank a security interest in all her present and future assets. Jordan is a dealer in imported chandeliers. He and Marlie agree that he will give her possession of a dozen chandeliers to sell on his behalf. Marlie is not obliged to pay for the chandeliers unless she keeps them for more than 30 days. Marlie goes into default on her loan. The bank seizes all of her inventory, including the 12 chandeliers. Jordan finds out about the seizure and demands the chandeliers, saying that they are his, but the bank disputes this. Is Jordan entitled to get the chandeliers back? Structure your answer following the Marking Rubric below. Marking Rubric Marking Criteria Mark 1. In relation to the contest between the bank and Jordan, identifies the legal question in relation to the chandeliers, which is raised by the scenario. /10 2. Identifies and explains the possible legal relationship between Jordan and Marlie that may benefit Jordan and why it would benefit him. /10 3. Identifies the factual elements, which must be proved to show the existence of the legal relationship referred to above. /10 4. Analyzes the scenario to see if the factual elements referred to above are present. /10 5.

One of his female employees has made a complaint to the Alberta Human Rights Commission against Luke concerning gender discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace. The employee alleges that she and the other women lifeguards were recently forced to wear newly issued skimpy company bikinis instead of the previous one-piece suits while performing their lifeguarding duties. Those who refused would be given last choice on shifts (which, practically speaking, meant that they would be getting no shifts). The complainant protested to Luke but eventually gave in since it was too late in the summer to find another job. Additionally, the employee claims that, since the female staff was forced to wear the bikinis, Luke drops in constantly for site visits. His visits with females are more frequent and much longer lasting than with male staff. In fact, it is alleged that these visits have earned him the nickname of “Leering Luke.” Several female employees have told Luke that they find his behaviour unwelcome and are uncomfortable wearing the bikinis. Luke knows about his nickname but stands behind his policy. According to Luke, business has increased and, as a result, there has been more to “supervise” at each visit. Explain the concepts of gender discrimination and sexual harassment. Identify facts in the scenario which may support the employee’s claim and consider what other unstated facts, if proved, might also provide support. Identify a defense that Luke may raise. State your conclusion whether the situation involved discrimination or harassment, referring to the relevant facts and the strength of the defense. The following websites will help you with Case Study B: Alberta Human Rights: Discrimination (PDF) Alberta Human Rights Commission: Sexual harassments Alberta Human Rights Commission: Bona fide occupational requirements Structure your answer following the Marking Rubric below.

Option #1: Differences in Hearts Each person has a unique set of circumstances that lead to a unique heart, but there are some trends where we see consistent similarities. For example, how does a runner’s heart perform differently from that of the average non-runner? How do infant’s hearts work differently from adult hearts? Is there a difference in male and female hearts? Pick any two groups of people that interest you (they do not have to be one of the groups just mentioned) to compare for this assignment. Address the following points in your paper: 1) Describe the function of the heart. 2) Trace the flow of blood through the heart to the rest of the body. 3) Describe what a healthy heart sounds like; what a healthy heart rate is; and what a healthy blood pressure is. 4) Compare and contrast heart sounds, heart rate, and blood pressure in the two groups of focus for your paper. 5) Are the sounds, heart rate, and blood pressure in these groups of people healthy, or is there a problem? Explain. 6) What was most interesting about comparing these two groups? Essay Requirements: Your cohesive and well-organized essay should be at least 1-2 pages in length, double spaced. Include at least one scholarly reference in addition to the course textbook. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these references. Include a title page and a references page. Follow the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA.
