Self Pollination And Its Types

Self Pollination - Types of Self Pollination

Self Pollination Self pollination is defined as the transfer of mature pollen grains from the anther of flower to stigma of same flower or to that of another flower of the same plant. So, this whole process is termed as Self pollination or Autogamy (auto – self, Gamos – marriage). For example in Pea, Cotton or “Tomato. Self pollination takes place in ...

Translocation Mutation – What is Down Syndrome and Translocation Heterozygote

Translocation Mutation

Translocation Mutation – Types of Translocation Mutation, Describe Down Syndrome, Translocation Heterozygote,  Reciprocal Translocation Translocation mutation is also termed as chromosomal translocation, translocation chromosomal mutation, DNA translocation, or simply translocations. Basically, translocation mutation involves the movement of a segment of a chromosome to a new place in the genome. The translocation may occur within a single chromosome. Reciprocal Translocation, Define Position ...

Chromosomal Inversion

Chromosomal Inversion – Describe Types of Inversion, Inversion Loop and Explain The Role of Inversion in Evolution Chromosomal inversion are also called by different names (genetic inversion, chromosome inversion or inversion mutation). The Inversions are chromosomal mutations that concludes a segment of chromosome which is turned around 180o and is reinserted into the chromosome. It does not involve a loss ...

Chromosome Duplication – Explain Gene Redundancy, Give Ohno Thesis

Chromosome Duplication

Explain Chromosome Duplication, What is Gene Redundancy, Describe Duplication mutations In Details With Ohno Thesis Chromosome duplication occurs when any part of the genetic material – A single locus or a large piece of a chromosome is present more than once in a genome. As in deletions pairing in heterozygotes may produce a compensation loop. Chromosome duplication may arise as a ...

Polyploidy in Plants

Polyploidy – Types of Polyploidy In Plants, Differentiate Autopolyploidy and Allopolyploidy Polyploidy is a type of condition in which the individuals contains more than two multiples of the haploid chromosome sets. Those individuals in which this condition is found are called Polyploids. And the phenomenon is referred as polyploidy as above mentioned. If an individual has 3n chromosomes, it is termed ...

Give Variation in Chromosome Number Significance And Describe Endopolyploidy


Significance of Variation in Chromosome Number – Briefly Describe Endopolyploidy And Define Gene Redundancy Variation in chromosome number study has enhanced our knowledge of evolution. Monosomy and trisomy in both plants and animals have made it clear that the diploid genome expresses genetic information in a delicate balanced way. In humans, this equilibrium of genetic expression is much important as ...

Detailed Study of Euploidy In Genetics And Differentiate Haploid and Monoploid

Euploidy In Genetics

Euploidy In Genetics – Differentiate Haploid and Monoploid, Give Methods For Production of Haploids Euploidy is a condition where one or more full sets of chromosomes are in an organism. The euploids may be Monoploids, Diploids (normal organisms) Polyploids. Haploid and Monoploid Difference A distinction should be made between monoploidy and haploidy. Monoploids can be distinguished from haploids as they ...
