Gene Mutations and DNA repair

Gene Mutation and DNA repair Mutation can happen during the recombination or replication. It is the permanent change that happens to the sequence of the DNA in the nucleotide. The cause of mutation within the DNA can be due to insertion of base pair, deletion or substitution. Mutations are not harmful until they cause a tumor or cell death. The fatal outcomes of the gene mutation are the reason that DAN repair is important. Before understanding DNA repair, it is important that we understand the Read more [...]

Regulation of Gene Expression

Regulation of gene expression Gene expression is the natural procedure in which the genetic codes also called the nucleotide sequence is directly used for the synthesis of the proteins. It helps in the production of cell structure. The genes that are used for coding the amino acids of the cell are known as the structural proteins. There are two main stages of the gene expression.Transcription In the process, the message RNA is produced with the help of the enzymes RNA polymerase and the result Read more [...]

Types of Gene Mapping

Gene mapping and it types Gene mapping is the process in which we determine the linear order due to which the genetic units are arranged according to genetic order. For instance, there are three different genes E, F, and G then the genetic map will have a different order of arrangement like: EFG EGF FGE FEG GEF GFEGene mapping also plays an important role in the determination of the distance between the genetic units.Types of gene mapping There Read more [...]

Pedigree Analysis and its Applications

Pedigree analysis and applications In people, controlled crosses can't be manufactured, so the genetic specialists must fall back on investigating family records with the expectation that enlightening mating has been influenced that to can be utilized to conclude strength related to X-linked and autosomal inheritance. The pieces of information in the family must be translated distinctively relying upon one of the phenotypes that differ is an uncommon issue or if the two phenotypes related to the Read more [...]

Basic Principles of Heredity

Basic principles of Heredity The basic principle of heredity comes from the first theory that was proposed in 1866 by Gregor Mendel. Mendel's research was based on the pea plant but the principles are applied to both plants and animals. It helps us to understand how we inherit different traits like eye and even the tongue rolling ability.Inheritance in pea plant There are 7 traits in the pea plant and Mendel selected all those that had two forms. Pea color (yellow or green) Pea Read more [...]

Introduction to Genetics

 Genetics :What is Genetics ?            Gеnеtісѕ іѕ thе ѕtudу оf how genes brіng about сhаrасtеrіѕtісѕ, оr trаіtѕ, іn lіvіng thіngѕ and hоw thоѕе сhаrасtеrіѕtісѕ are іnhеrіtеd. Gеnеѕ are роrtіоnѕ оf DNA mоlесulеѕ that determine сhаrасtеrіѕtісѕ of living things. Thrоugh thе рrосеѕѕеѕ of meiosis and rерrоduсtіоn, genes are trаnѕmіttеd frоm one gеnеrаtіоn tо thе next.          Thе Read more [...]
