Attachment of mitotic spindle to kinetochores

17. In a dihybrid cross , the ratio 9:3:3:1 indicates

Independent assortment

18.A key different between mitosis and meiosis ?

Synapsis of homologous chromosomes in meiosis

19.The first Gap in the cell cycle (G1) Corresponds to ?

Normal growth and functioning

20.Replication of the Genome occurs in which phase of the cell cycle?


21.which scientist was not directly involved in the discovery of DNA structure
Sydney Altman

22.What is the different between a ribonucleotide and Deoxyribonuclotode?

Ribonucleotides has a hydroxyl group on the 2’carbon of their sugar subunit

23. At what stage in meiosis is chromosome number typically reduced from 2n to n?

Meiosis I

24.A cell with its chromosomes line up across the middle of the cell in?

25. What is responsible of holding the two strands together in the DNA double helix?
Hydrogen Bonds

26.Mating two organisms produces a 3:1 ratio of phenotype in progeny. The parental
genotype are?
Aa x Aa
27. Homologous chromosomes move opposite poles of a dividing cell during?

28.which of the following bases are purines?

Adenine and Guanine

29.Mitosis is the process of chromosomes separation. Cytoplasm divided between the two
daughter cell in the process known as?

30.The process by which genetic information in transferred from DNA to RNA is called?

31.DNA is composed of four nucleotides: Adenine , Cytosine , Thymine and Guanosine. If a

scientist introduced radioactive thymine in the growth medium of the cells, it would be
incorporated into the DNA molecule ?
During DNA replication

32.In eukaryotes ,where does transcription takes place?

In the nucleus

33.What is the fundamental different between mitosis and meiosis?

The amount of genetics material per cell is cut in half in meiosis but remains the same in

The cell cycle (look online)

G1: Growth and development
S: Each chromosome duplicate( after S phase the number of chromosomes stays the same (4)
but the number of DNA molecules Double (8) Dna molecules.
G2:Biochemical necessary for cell division occur . At the end of G2 the cell is ready to divide.

M phase
Prophase :
-Mitosis and Cytokines
4 chromosomes
4 DNA molecules
Chapter 1
A genome is a complete set of genetic instructions for any organism

-Somatic cells are diploid, i.e. they contain two copies of each chromosome
Humans-23 pairs
1 paternal set (from father)
1 maternal set (from mother)

-Gametic number is the number of chromosomes found in the gamete of an individual, and is
symbolized by “n”
-Somatic number is “2n”
