Subtopics

  • Lactose intolerance [r]: Due to a decrease of the lactase enzyme in cells lining the small intestine of adults and a concomitant inability to break down or metabolize lactose. [e]

Other related topics

  • Allele [r]: A specific sequence of a gene, and one of a pair in a diploid cell (one per chromosome). [e]
  • DNA [r]: A macromolecule — chemically, a nucleic acid — that stores genetic information. [e]
  • Dihybrid cross [r]: A cross in genetics between two individuals identically heterozygous at two loci, for example, AaBb x AaBb. [e]
  • Gene [r]: The functional unit of heredity. [e]
  • Genotype [r]: Genetic makeup, as distinguished from the physical appearance, of an organism or a group of organisms, based on a combination of alleles located on homologous chromosomes that determines a specific characteristic or trait. [e]
  • Mutation [r]: Changes to the DNA sequence that cause new genetic variation. [e]
  • Natural selection [r]: The differential survival and/or reproduction of classes of entities that differ in one or more characteristics [e]
  • Plant breeding [r]: The purposeful manipulation of plant species in order to create desired genotypes and phenotypes for specific purposes, such as food production, forestry, and horticulture. [e]
  • RNA interference [r]: Process that inhibits the flow of genetic information to protein synthesis. [e]
  • Race (biology) [r]: Inbreeding group marked by a pre-determined profile of latent factors of hereditary traits. [e]
