What best describes the relationship between a gene and an allele?
What best describes the relationship between Knowles's life in high school and that of Gene in A Separate Peace?
Both Knowles and Gene had some similar experiences.
Each gene has the instructions for one protein.
A gene is a segment of DNA that codes for a functional product (protein). This influences an organism's traits. An allele is a form of a gene. For example, the alleles for A…BO blood type are A, B and O.
Which statement best describes the relationship between the number of genes and the number of chromosomes in human skin cells?
There are more genes than chromosomes in skin cells.
Homozygous alleles are the same alleles. Either both dominant or both resessive. Example: AA or aa. Heterozygous are both a dominant and recessive allele. Example: Aa
Alleles are alternate forms of genes present in chromosomes .
A gene is a part of the DNA. Alleles on the other hand refer to different versions of the same gene. There are other more subtle differences between the two and this is what w…e are going to explore on this page:Genes are the different parts of the DNA that decide the genetic traits a person is going to have. Alleles are the different sequences on the DNA-they determine a single characteristic in an individual.Another important difference between the two is that alleles occur in pairs. They are also differentiated into recessive and dominant categories. Genes do not have any such differentiation.An interesting difference between alleles and genes is that alleles produce opposite phenotypes that are contrasting by nature. When the two partners of a gene are homogeneous in nature, they are called homozygous. However, if the pair consists of different alleles, they are called heterozygous. In heterozygous alleles, the dominant allele gains an expression.The dominance of a gene is determined by whether the AA and Aa are alike phenotypically. It is easier to find dominants because they express themselves better when they are paired with either allele.Alleles are basically different types of the same gene. Let's explain this to you in this way- If your eye color was decided by a single gene, the color blue would be carried by one allele and the color green by another. Fascinating, isn't it?All of us inherit a pair of genes from each of our parents. These genes are exactly the same for each other. So what causes the differences between individuals? It is the result of the alleles.The difference between the two becomes more pronounced in the case of traits. A trait refers to what you see, so it is the physical expression of the genes themselves. Alleles determine the different versions of the genes that we see. A gene is like a machine that has been put together. However, how it will works will depend on the alleles. Both alleles and genes play an all important role in the development of living forms. The difference is most colorfully manifest in humans of course! So next time you see the variety of hair color and eye color around you, take a moment and admire the phenomenal power of both the gene and the allele! Summary: 1. Genes are something we inherit from our parents- alleles determine how they are expressed in an individual. 2. Alleles occur in pairs but there is no such pairing for genes. 3. A pair of alleles produces opposing phenotypes. No such generalization can be assigned to genes. 4. Alleles determine the traits we inherit. 5. The genes we inherit are the same for all humans. However, how these manifest themselves is actually determined by alleles!
The relationship between allele and meiosis is the allele of a gene separate from each other when sex cells are formed during meiosis
An allele is one version of a gene.
gene is the sequence of DNA that codes for a protein and thus determines a trait... an allele is one of the number or different forms of a gene
they all have to do with genetics, because they have to work together to make offspring
Chromosomes are made of DNA. Genes are sections of the DNA.
An allele is a form of a gene. Basically, in simple Mendelian genetics, there are two genes that can be expressed: the dominant form and the recessive form. A pea plant can be… tall (dominant) or short (recessive). If a plant is tall, what controls that tallness is a gene. The fact that it is tall is due to the presence of the allele. ----------------------------------------- Simple improvement: The gene locus is the position on the chromosome that controls a specific trait (e.g. colorblindness). Alleles are different genetic sequences that can occur at that position to give a specific trait (colorblind, not colorblind). Since in humans there are two gene loci for each trait (one from mother and one from father), alleles can either be dominant-recessive (recessive only expressed when dominant is absent), codominant, or incompletely dominant, etc.
An allele is a sequence variant of a gene. alleles - a pair of genes controlling the same characters which are located at the same locus in the homologous chromosomes. gene is… a fundamental unit of heredity. also it is a segment of DNA having a particular base pair.
All chromosomes consist of genes and non coding material. Animals with chromosomes arranged in the double helix pattern have two almost identical genes on the chromosomes oppo…site from the other. When those two genes in particular are discussed, they are called alleles. Frequently one is expressed and one is not, or one is dominant and the other is not.
A Gene is specific chromosomal trait which determines something physical while an allele is the external possibilities of differing genes when passing hereditary traits from p…arents to offspring. Alleles are individual genes which have a chance of matching up depending on the genes of the parents. Each parent contributes half of their genes during conception in order to have an offspring. each parent also carries recessive genes or recessive alleles in other words which determine other possible random genetic inheritance. for example, if your mother had black hair and your father had black hair, the dominant allele trait would be the gene for Black hair but your parents also carry a dormant or recessive set of alleles which CAN match up and give you a different appearance. For example if your paternal and maternal grandmothers had blond hair then your parents would have a recessive allele trait for the Blond Gene and if they both have this blond gene it means that you can be born with Blond hair, which would be totally different from the appearance of your parents but not outside the genetic inheritance. To further explain things please search Punnet Squares and Gregor Mendel's pea plant research and experiments for genetic inheritance information.
