    Ch 6 Resources     Bio textbook Online
    Chapter Objectives:

    Differentiate between body cells/autosomes and gametes/sex chromosomes

    Explain how meiosis produces sex cells

    Describe the patterns of inheritance that Mendel’s data revealed

    Summarize Mendel’s laws of segregation and independent assortment

    Describe how genes influence the development of traits

    Explain how crossing over during meiosis increases genetic diversity.

    Lesson Focus:

     6.1 Gametes have half the number of chromosomes that body cells have.
    Chromosome Numbers- how many chromosomes does each species have? 


    During meiosis, diploid cells undergo two cell divisions that result in haploid cells.
