GENE LINKAGE AND MAPPING OF WHITE, YELLOW AND SINGED GENES
This paper looks at the study of genetics, we have crossed different genes to try and see how they cross to come up with different genetic makeup. The paper looks at Gregor Mendel who was particularly the first person to study genetics. It is inevitable to mention this distinguished scholar whenever the term genetics comes up. He carried out experiments using plants. The study also looks at Morgan also did experiments with the Drosophila and he came up with answers to questions, which he had on the eye color of these flies.
Genetics is simply a branch of science that deals with the study of heredity and its complex components. Genes are tiny units within cells which make heredity possible (Hand 1). Geneticists study how genes affect the heredity and influence characterization. The study seeks to answer questions to some commonly asked questions. These are questions like, how can parents who have blue eyes give birth to a child with brown eyes? Why are some twins identical while others look remarkably different? How can parents who are tall get a child who is short? Genes influence the development of particular diseases, having a certain height, skin or eye color. This led to the development of science as people sought to get reliable answers to these questions and many others.
Gregor Mendel was particularly the first person to study genetics. It is inevitable to mention this distinguished scholar whenever the term genetics comes up. He carried out experiments using plants. These plants were in a botanical garden at a monastery in Monrovia. Mendel based his study mainly by using peas as his primary source of study. He grew thirty-four different types of peas in a green house to speed up their maturity. He wanted to find out if these peas would always produce true breeds. That is if green peas always produced green peas, and yellow ones yellow peas (Henig, 14). He also...
