1- The chromosomal theory of heredity implies that genes are located on the chromosomes and are transmitted to the next generation through them.
2-In a monohybrid cross the Fi ratio of a backcross is 1:1.
3-DNA duplication occurs in meiosis I and mitosis.
4-A giant chromosome having many chromonemata lying side by side all along their length is called polytene chromosome.
5-Transfer of a gene or genes through a virus is called transduction.
6-The condition in which only one allele of a pair is present is known as Hemizygous.
7-In humans, an example of a sex-linked trait is Colour-blindness.
8-The genetic constitution of an organism is known as Genome.
9-Mutations which are not dominant are not lost by a gene pool. This is known as Hardly-Weinberg law.
10-Phenylketonuria disease results from the genetic inability to synthesize a single enzyme.
11-When two genes are situated very close to each other in a chromosome no crossing-over can ever take place between them.
12-If an individual does not breed true for its characters, it is called a hybrid.
13-The science dealing with the study of inheritance and variation is Genetics.
14-A codon is a sequence of 3 nucleotides on m-RNA.
15-An offspring of two homozygous parents different from one another by alleles at only one gene locus is known as monohybrid.
16-Reverse transcription was discovered by Temin.
17-Linked genes may be separated by the process of segregation.
18-The segment of DNA which participates in crossing over is known as recon.
19-Klinefelter’s syndrome is developed when the chromosome in the male is XXY, XXXY, and XXYY.
20-Chromosomes exhibit minimum coiling during interphase.
21-A functional unit of a gene which specifies synthesis of one polypeptide is known as cistron.
22-Crossing over in meiosis occurs in diplotene.
23-Dyad is a pair of sister chromosomes.
24-The nuclear membrane completely disappears during late prophase.
25-Linkage is inversely related to crossing over.
