Reproduction

HideShow resource information
Inherited
Characteristics passed on from parents
1 of 12
Genetic Information
DNA, Genes- Determine characteristics and body functions
2 of 12
Chromosomes
Thread like structures in the nucleus made up of DNA
3 of 12
Gene
Section of a chromosome that codes a characteristic eg hair colour
4 of 12
DNA
Chemical which genes/chromosomes are made from
5 of 12
Gametes
Sex cells (sperm and egg)
6 of 12
Variation
Differences within species
7 of 12
Sexual Reproduction
Involves 2 parents, creates variation in offspring, have a mixture of DNA from both parents
8 of 12
Asexual Reproduction
Involves 1 parent, identical offspring(clones), no joining of gametes so no DNA is shared
9 of 12
Clones/Natural (eg twins)
Organisms with identical DNA (genetic material)
10 of 12
Inherited Variation
Inherit characteristics from both parents with different combination of results
11 of 12
Environmental Variation
Other characteristics affected by a person's surroundings
