Genetics Exam 1 Study Guide

1) The Human Genome project found: : The (almost) complete human sequence, and a reference human genome The location and structure of most genes The identification of (most) of the major variants A highly interactive database with a continuous fusion of new information
2) ENCODE- encyclopedia of DNA elements: : Goal was to build a comprehensive parts list of functional elements in the human genome, including elements that act at protein and RNA levels, and regulatory elements that control cells when gene is active.
3) Gregor Mendel : Father of modern genetics. Worked with pea plants and came up with laws of segregation, uniformity, and independent assortment.
4) Sir Francis Galton : Father of statistical genetics and behavioral genetics (twin studies). He believed traits were determined solely by genes, and so worked with Karl Pearson to develop statistical tests to analyze the inheritance of characteristics. Also, coined term Eugenics.
5) Sir Archibald Garrod : Father of medical genetics. Showed that a variety conditions acted as Mendelian recessive, including Alkaptonuria and Albinism.
